I can’t believe it. I finally got my voice back, and now I’ve got a nasty cold. I guess losing my voice and having coughing fits for two weeks made me appreciate a lot though.
Before I had energy and my mind but couldn’t talk– now I can talk but my mind is so foggy. I guess it’s easier to teach with a voice and fake the enthusiasm than to cough through a lesson. But I sure wish I could be back to normal for a while. I’ve almost forgotten what that feels like!
In other news, today one teacher was sick but the class I was supposed to teach was actually something the Korean teacher had to lead, so I just took over the absent teacher’s classes instead. It was science, and teaching science is awesome because there is no lesson planning– you get the bag of materials with directions in side and wing the explanations. It was a pretty good day for me.
Unrelated to school or teaching, I am currently reading Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy. It’s a break from all the Korean books I’ve been reading but it’s good to keep myself stimulated in English too. After I finish this I really want to read the Game of Thrones serious. Tristan and I have been watching the TV show and it is phenomenally written. Apparently the author wrote the screenplay as well and the dialogue is so fantastic that the books must be brilliant. I’ve only heard good things! It looks like there is a lot of reading in my future (well, after Ashley visits!)
