the last several days have been language training, english teaching training, and then either the bar or internet cafe or home. dinners have been good. tonite we had the standard pea sauce with rice, potatoes, and a veggie of okra and something else i couldn’t tell what.
i showed the family my camera today and they were loving it. interesting to see them have no idea how to work something like that compared to american kids.
i have plenty of dandruff at the moment. weird.
new wilco song is cool. i might. i love my label cover.
i feel ready to be at my site. i don’t feel ready to be far away from americans. i feel ready to be on my own schedule. i still can’t believe i’m going to be here two years. i feel ready to do it, though. not missing home as much. trying to be here and now.
i think it’s still the honeymoon phase with the country. i do feel the dirtiness at times and i wish i could get cleaner in the shower. i think it’s going to fly by. already week 3. cool.
i’m not looking forward to actually teaching english. i think it will be fun, but it seems weird that i have to make lesson plans and stuff. i am going to be a real teacher! i take that back, i am looking forward to seeing how well i like it. i’ll say again, i am proud and ready to do the 2 year commitment.
reading a brave new world. finished outliers a few days ago. i like the pace at which i am going through books.
i need to clean all my underwear, stat.
tonite i feel as though these next two years are going to be great.
