Today life in Brazil went back to normal. Brazilians like to say that the New Year actually starts after Carnival--not on January 2nd. And so it was, with the masses going back to work, the kids going back to school, and me going back to the joy that is adult ESL.
This is more or less how today went.
1:30am: toss a little. turn a little.
3:00am: pray for sleep.
4:45am: glorious dream-filled sleep.
5:30am: text message from student saying he will not make 8am class.
5:30am-8:00am: toss and turn.
8:30am: call boss to schedule afternoon meeting.
8:35am: attempt sleep.
10:15am: wake up from alarm. put pillow back over head.
12:15pm: drag self out of bed to eat and get ready.
2:15pm: meeting at office
3:00pm: first class with new students (they are nice, but this may not last)
4:15pm: collapse onto couch where boyfriend has already passed out.
What a fun week ahead. Oh man.
