Happy Thoughts for Thursday

Travel plans.  I've discovered over the past few weeks that travel planning is not fun.  I'm sure the trips themselves will be great, but trying to match schedules and preferences and still have enough money to eat is proving to be a little difficult.  Nevertheless, things are starting to fall in to place.  

Good reviews.  The mother of the kids that I've been tutoring called my program director to say that she's very pleased with me and that the kids love me.  The funny thing is that I actually have been enjoying teaching them.  Shh, don't tell anyone, I'll lose my reputation as Not A Kid Person.

Coffee.  I've been drinking a lot of coffee here.  Tomorrow we're having our grammar class in a cafe, which means that I get even more coffee.  Love it.

Taking naps is totally pc.  As soon as I hit publish, I'm taking a nap.  I'm looking forward to it.

Opening up.  I keep being told that I need to speak more spanish.  What nobody here seems to get is that I'm not really a talkative person, in any language.  Almost every time that I've been told that here, it was after an hour where I felt that I had been talking a lot, just in my own way.  "A lot" is relative, people.  

Friends.  There are some really cool people here, and I'm really glad that I'm getting the opportunity to get to know them.  Also, I really miss all my home friends, but wonderful things like the internet means that I can still talk to them.

Zapatillos.  In Spain, everyone lives in house slippers.  I've always hated wearing slippers, but I seem to have the opposite problem here.  I can't wait to get home sometimes, just to put my slippers on.  They're just so warm!

Cats.  Everywhere.  Adorable.

  1. Tutoring children, especially good children can change your perspective of them. That's what happened last spring when I was tutoring. It's fun to try to see the world from their perspective. I miss you roommate!
