Is it bad that I’m burnt out on school already? Yeah, It’s probably bad…at least a little. I mean I just take six classes I shouldn’t be burnt out, but I definitely feel that way. I think what has burnt me out most is that I am not really enjoying it. I was having a great time after the first week, but now that the work has really started piling up I am starting to have...
Not a long post, but an update. My Dad’s cancer is more aggressive than they originally thought.

School Day One.
I finished my first day of University. It was mostly a morning and afternoon filled with loads of information about my career path, teaching. I managed to hook up with the other two odd ones out, my fellow expats, Nina from Russia and Becky from Great Britain. So, at least I am not alone and I started out my first day making friends. It’s like starting over in Kindergarten all over again. I...
