Hello and happy Saturday. It certainly feels odd to be typing that after almost a full month with no teaching posts. And just to clarify, no, this isn’t teaching related.
Let me update you on what’s been going on since my last day working as a school teacher. I traveled to Baltimore and had a blast. The time alone helped me realize many things about myself and the way I want my life as a “real adult” to be. I was supposed to meet this guy I’d been talking to online, but that ended up not happening. I came back to Bogota, took a test for the program I’ll be part of this summer, and then spent a weekend by the beach with my sister.
I spent my first week at home, still adjusting to my recent trips and the fact that I was no longer working full-time. I did have to go to the school where I used to work because it was the English Day and I was the person who’d planned it, and had to execute it as well. My best friend graduated from university and then, after her celebratory brunch, I went to a holiday house my family owns outside of Bogota and spent the days reading and sunbathing. Then it was Easter, and literally nothing happened.
This first week of April has been tough because the guy I was talking to decided to break contact with me. I will explain this in another post, as well as some other bits of information I’ve let out throughout this post. I’ve been coping with the help of Mark Rosenfeld’s dating advice, and obviously I’ve been redirecting my energies into productive activities like blogging, my Portuguese classes, and getting everything ready for the trips that await me.
I’ve decided that I’m going to try and use this space on Saturdays to tell you more about what’s going on in my personal life, and we’ll see how things go once I get back to teaching. Now, in the comments below I want you to update me on your life. How’s everything?
Love, Miss Camila
