reading, writing and photographing is my life (accompanied by some awesome background music)

Stress, stress, stress…

So much to do. So little time to do it.

At least that’s how it feels. I’ve dusted off my books and taken up my studies again at the University. Getting my English degree done. But I’m also working a lot at the moment so there’s this constant struggle of fitting both studies/exams/seminars and actual work into my schedule. Of course I caught a cold – again – too, so I feel pretty exhausted.

Last week was specially stressful because I celebrated my 27th birthday this weekend and so there was a lot of cleaning, baking and cooking that needed to get done before all the guests arrived. Never realized just how much time you actually spend in the kitchen when you cook and bake everything yourself. Lucky me, my cousin and my niece were both such sweethearts and helped me out. I think the party turned out great. Hope the guests thought so, too.

Had an exam in General Grammar the day before yesterday. Fingers crossed I passed it!

School Work

I got a new job!

It’s not a full-time job, but I’m actually getting a lot of hours in so it’s not too different from one. I’m a substitute teacher at a school nearby where I live. Preschool, elementary and middle school plus extracurricular. So it’s a lot of names to learn and some running around between classrooms and working with a lot of different people. But it’s actually quite fun. I like it more and more for every day I get to work. Besides, the paycheck I get at the end of the month is so much sweeter than what I got from my other job.

I’ve got an appointment with a student counselor at the local university on Friday. Want to know if maybe there’s some courses I could take or something regarding this kind of work.
