ABROAD...again


Well, I am living abroad...yet again. After Singapore, Spain, Turkey, Korea the Netherlands (and returning to Spain for a Masters) I've unpacked my backpack a little closer to home in Mexico. I live in Culiacan where I am trying my hand at teaching English to University and high school students. Below you'll find random updates as I go to festivals, explore my city or just feel like sharing a random story.

What time is it?

I learned how to work my stove!

The "gas safety" lady stopped by to make sure gas wasn't leaking, and..its not and...I learned how to work my stove!

Wohoo!

So other than that. Today I had my first solo class...i was nervous because A. it was my first solo class and B. it was the first lesson plan I've ever written C. It was the worst lesson plan I've ever written D. It was a class I've never met E. It was a level I've never taught

Yikes

I did OK I got nervous and spoke too quickly, but overall good. Then I went to the hospital got my results (cannabis negative, TB (not our TB its an abbreviation over here for a drug test) negative, AIDS negative...so they were allowed to let me stay

I applied for my Alien Registration Card...so we'll see how that goes. I had to give them my passport...I HATE giving people my passport...I feel so naked

OK...I am boiling water (on my stove!) to make tea

Then sleep

Glad you figured the stove out. With a few ideas we could send you a film or two w/ your blockbuster. The lesson plan may have been the worst you ever did, but it was also the best. Ask Babbit and Jimmy Carroll about that. DAD
