A Few Updates

Jul 15, 2011 - 0 comments

It's actually been very difficult for me to find the time to sit down and write lately.
Since missing my first official run, I've been running with Danielle each weekday , the length of the walking bridge and back.  We've decided to forgo the yoga for the time being as we both are very much content with our running routine & don't want to make any changes to it just yet.    

Running has become significantly easier.  My lungs no longer feel weighted down with molten lead after my runs.  My strength and endurance have spiked also!  Very happy with the results I'm getting from it.  

I've also managed quite nicely to stay away from cigarettes.  I don't miss them.  At all.  I'm very proud to say that! (^_^)

As for tutoring;  I can't begin to describe how rewarding this has turned out to be.  I've really found something I have a passion for and all of my students are improving so much with their english skills.  I'm very happy for them.  And I'm so pleased that they enjoy taking classes from me.   I try to make it as interesting and informative as possible and I'm definitely on the right path.  They are also the best kind of students to have.  Eager and excited to learn.  It makes my teaching experience even better!

Because of my new-found love for teaching, I've very seriously considered enrolling in TESL courses and get my teaching certificate.   Reason:  Once I'm certified TESL, I can go anywhere and everywhere I want to, bringing with me a trade that is in demand in every part of the world.  

This, I feel, is my calling; and my means to travel and explore the world and to take part in the many different cultures that I've only ever been able to read about but never experience for myself.  :)

Life isn't perfect, but, dammit, it's getting very very good!!!
