Hm… it’s being a crazy week all over again. Last time I posted I was so excited that I completely forgot the language I was writing… anyway. updates. I do not know if I told you that I invited one of my students to visit my hometown and have lunch at my grandpas. It was great, the visit, I think she enjoyed it… the only problem was at lunch. She’s a vegetarian and my grandma made her spinach cannelonni. But one of my aunts was invited and she kind of criticized her vegetarianism, so she felt a little bad… I mean, Galician people, specially old people they just say what it comes to their minds not caring so much about feelings. We’re strong people XD… I tried to explain her and after that it was ok.
Anyway, today was the birthday of my chinese student. I knew it because practicing telling dates in Spanish I asked her and tried to keep that date in mind. Because I am the first teacher in the morning and I am at the school alone I arranged a little surprise for her. I bought her a piece of chocolate cake, put a candle on it. Also bought her a present (notebook and color pens) and a birthday card. I received her with the cake and the candle and I think she was happy.
She must be missing her family from China a lot so I hope it helped her… I don’t know, maybe I am just trying so hard… Tomorrow I’m teaching children, and Friday the two groups of children too. That means I have tons of work, classes to prepare… and good news… my teacher is finding new students for next trimester which means that I may have my contract expanded… I just have to keep getting healthy.
And lately I am thinking about my Barcelona friends a lot. I miss you guys. I hope I can see you soon.
