And just before summer ends in Galicia (it is still really sunny and hot, unbelievable) I am starting my new life, and really, really enjoying it.
I am talking about my new job. I’ve just worked a couple of days, teaching this Chinese girl spanish, but it was nice. My student is nice. I believe she can learn a lot. The only problem is, that she is really shy and does not talk much (in Spanish) so it is hard to teach (with a communicative approach that she wants) someone that shy. But it is a challenge, and I can face that. After teaching 2hours and a half of Spanish, I have to reach my four- hour /day job by developing materials for children studying Chinese. Which is fun. I have to think not only about what they should have learnt at the end of the course , but also I have to prepare didactic activities. They are designed for 7-8 years old so I should make exercises and activities really fun. I thought I would not like this part of the job but actually is incredibly creative, and I am feeling enthusiastic about it. Yesterday I felt, for the first time since I got here, that I have a real, stabilized life, and I am ready to tackle my health issues from now on.
About health, after two days of hospitals, no real improvements. Actually, what they say was not encouraging at all, and everything looked so dark. Anyway, I know that I have faced bigger challenges before (getting my scholarship, surviving in China, working as an interpreter, working as a scientific translator) I went and overcame all of that so, a little health issue is not going to get me down.
There are so many so many so many things that I want to enjoy. I have many plans. I have many ideas. And I am going to do everything in my hands to achieve all of them.
