Homestretch!

I’m almost there!  After two years of chipping away, my Masters program will be ending in a couple of weeks!   I have loved being challenge and learning new skills and methodologies in TESL, but I am ready to have more time to study Turkish and blog.  With the past few months difficulty in blogging aside, it has been difficult to work all day, come home, do homework, then blog.  Many times after teaching all day, doing my own coursework, grading my students’ homework and cooking dinner there really wasn’t enough time or energy to sit down and create a post.

Now that I have three courses finishing up in two weeks, I am crazy busy.  I have been spending most of my time inside chained to a computer.  I am excited for my “summer” to start!  I want to go running and hiking.  I really want to go to the beach—swim a little and catch some sun.  Considering it is July, it is a little sad that I am still this white!

NOT THRILLED

Yeah. With the amount of work I have to do in the next few days my face still looks pretty much like that.

A Date…

Today I had an interview.  I took the semester off to take care of my father.  I was also going to postpone a practicum for my Masters in TESOL.  However, since my father’s death, I don’t need to put off my class.  So today I went to a interview for my practicum.  Though, it is a little less than ideal, since I brought few professional clothes,  and there are very few ELL learners in rural N.H.  The interview went well, and then I went on a romantic date…with myself.  I took a walk in the adorable downtown, and bought some luscious chocolate covered strawberries (for my mom, my brother and his girlfriend and me.)  Later I went to the sushi bar, and had a delicious meal, for one.  It was actually a very nice time.  I am still not really ready to be out and about with people, so this was a lovely way to go out with out social pressure.
