I feel like I just got off a merry-go-round and everything's still spinning. I went from fighting crowds everywhere, chasing buses, ferries and trains from place to place, and searching for a place to sleep at night to this town devoid of action. I mean, the most exciting thing that happened (aside from falling asleep in spite of the heat) was killing a tick I found on the wall this morning. Seriously.

Coming back to Olomouc is so bittersweet. All the memories from before appear so vividly all the time. It is not as exciting as it was last time, the mystery is gone. I called this entry "waiting" but it's more like "adjusting". I met some other students, one from Canada, one from Greece, and about 6 from America. I guess there are about 80 people in the program but there are classes of 15 people. The course is going to be pretty intense. Like 7 hours a day or something. Ugh. But I am glad because I really don't know Czech as well as it may seem to people. I mean I do okay but that's because most of communication isn't from what's said. Anyway, after this course is over, I should be ready to decide if I will come back and teach English to businesses after I graduate. Ross tells me he could get me a job doing that. If I do come back for that reason, this course will be extremely valuable to me.

I hope I can find someone who wants to play ping-pong with me soon, I love ping-pong and they have two tables in the dorms. I am excited to meet my classmates and start the program. This waiting around is killing me (so is the heat).
