Guys. This is awesome. So, my grandmother just Skyped me three times in a row because I didn’t answer the first two times ( I was on ‘do not disturb’). Now, if you don’t know my grandmother…then you don’t know her. Whatever. She is my father’s mother and is has every bit of Panamanian sass that you can have: You gotta be presentable. Sit up straight. Pull your shoulders back. You gotta be educated. Study hard. College is mandatory. You gotta treat people right. Tell your loved ones, friends and family alike that you love them. They need to hear it. Also, her accent is pretty cool in both Spanish and English. Be jealous. Additionally she reminds me of my dad, but don’t tell him that. Shhh
Well, Grandma is a very caring grandma and is a fan of whipping you into shape as well. So be prepared if you muck up. This is a taste of what I received today as she was telling me to get my stuff going and to beast everything I do. She boasts at how all 3 of her children are college educated and beyond with blossoming careers and how it is only natural that her grandchildren do
the same better. Oh the family pressure. I can feel it suffocating motivating me to do what I need to do to succeed.
Haha, but in all seriousness I loved hearing from grandma and it is blessing having family that is so invested in each other like mine is on both sides: mother and father. I am so blessed I can’t say it enough. Now, with all this pressure I have a permanent boot kicking my rear into gear. It is good pressure of course! So, now I am off to go do some more studying if I don’t pass out like an old lady at 9:30 pm.
PS: Bar Chi was great and tasty! I didn’t pig out too much but you really can’t tell that much with sushi considering you are always hungry an hour after gorging on a few rolls.
