This is why I’m going back to school, for these lovely days in which you have to wake up super early for a day of art and culture, and hitting up the MET in a pretty morning!
We were submerged in a crescendo of beautiful sculptures, portraits and brilliant tales of the past, as to the how and why of things. Though I was exhausted by the end of the day, I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. My professor is incredibly passionate, and definitely one the of the savviest people I have ever met in my life.
A tiny bit later, after lecture, I wanted to sit on the steps of a church to have a cup of coffee and read, but it was so sunny and hot, all I could do was admire the architecture from across the street and enjoy my coffee there. ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ
I’ve had a lot of fun at work too. I love what I do so much! Definitely spending all those years abroad in Asia provided me with all the tools to do my job, the best I possibly can. One of my students even told me, I was one of the best teachers she’s ever had! Apparently at other schools, the teacher would just give their students a worksheet and expect them to know how to speak English! That is unreal! I actually take the time to explain every single point as best I can. AND the best part is, she’s super nice and provides me with yummy snacks! ₍ᐢ•ﻌ•ᐢ₎
Returning to teaching English was definitely one of the smartest decisions I’ve made in these past few months. I had my reservations, because of my previous experiences, however, I had to realize, this is New York City … and everything is always better in
New York! Ꮚ˘̴͈́ꈊ˘̴͈̀Ꮚ⋆✩
For the first time in YEARS I’ve had to spend hours and hours looking for specific books and other references for my paper. I guess I forgot how much fun it is to get lost amongst books. Though I found what I was looking for, it seems like I have to sharpen my French skills, for all the information I need on the painters/paintings I was looking for are in French. I think it would be a good idea to start practicing for the future and get my 25% comprehension ability to a whole ‘notha level. o(〃＾▽＾〃)o
Basically, studying really hard really paid off! I got my first A+ towards my formal study of Art History! I rewarded myself by going out to dinner with my BFF! Ꮚ❛ꈊ❛Ꮚ
I even had time to catch up on my Pokémon skills … I miss just being able to go out and catching as many as I can for hours and hours.
Though life is fun … it’s going to be sooooo much better when my boo gets over to the East Coast in August! Though August is a bit of time away, I’m still jumping for joy. I’m gonna get to see him as often as I want! Soooo many good things have happened to him lately, things that make him happy, and therefore keep me happy. He’s the best (and most handsome) boyfriend in the world! (●♡∀♡)
