But yeah, figured that this journal hadn't seen an update on the elusive thing called Real Life in a long time.
1. Work. As in, back to.
Classes are slowly starting, students coming back. I have mostly the same groups I had last year: the middle schoolers, the older kids (11-13 year olds), and my favourite group, a bunch of ladies over 60 who are just beyond awesome.
Yesterday I started with a new group, 5 and 6 year olds, and they're unbelievably fun and really, really tiring. Expect some stories when I get to know them better.
(Just one now.
Me: What's your favourite colour?
Me: That's not a colour.
Ania: *disgruntled* Says you.)
2. School. As in, can't live without.
So, got my MA in English Lit and figured well, what do you do with an MA in English?
Apparently, try out for the MA programme in American Studies. Took the exam and got in, and now I'm back to full-time studies. How I'll manage with my job I have NO IDEA but the list of electives is awesome and I already signed up for the History of Women in the US and Canada, and for the American Approach to Warfare and other awesome stuff. Will keep you posted on that.
3. Everything else. As in, I should have some social life but I don't.
See: no time. (There's a party this Saturday, though. So there's that.)
