well the memorial weekend trip to AUstin is OFF. my bud called and said he's going to a special gay AA event in Dallas that weekend etc... which actually I'm ok with cause what a drive, plus I'll be working at the whitewater park that weekend most likely. and I had planned going to NYC that week after, like on June 1-5 but that's off now 'cause my host will just be getting back to the country that week yadda yadda. so it looks like no travel plans til later in June. no biggie I can wait.
Today was quite wonderful, I survived 1st hour this morning, with a few appeals and a few threats, and a lot of serious tones. ha We watched the documentary "Wasteland" which I've blogged about before. I had recorded it off PBS a few weeks ago and since we are studying environment and pollution right now in the ESL books it fit with the lessons. the thing is the kids usually get a disney flick. so I liked stretching and challenging their young minds by having to listen to the Portuguese and reading the English subtitles, or just watching whether they understood or not. I think it's good cultural exposure to other stuff out there in the world! no news from the school I applied at yet.. .it's ok, all in God's hands, meanwhile I'm checking postings at other local area schools, but I'm more and more ok with working at the same school next year, just being fully employed is quite a blessing.
I contacted a former gym buddy on facebook last week about hanging out sometime, and he responded about what time is good for me. that will be fun, he's a really really super nice guy, and seriously I'm just interested in seeing him and catching up as a friend. a young lawyer in town, blond and buff, former mormon from Utah etc etc..
I'm enjoying every bit of time I got this week because come Saturday I'll be grading both my classes final essays all next week. ugh! well good week to all.
