Got through the first 3 months!
. But we´ll see, the year starts up in a couple of weeks, and I have a feeling life is going to be crazy.
I have been a little frustrated with things in my site these past few days. I was suppose to be moving out into my own place when I got back, and I thought it was all taken care of, but when I got back from training and went to talk to the woman who I was renting from, she informed me that she had let someone else stay there, but she was sorry. Right, thanks. So I went around to some other places that I thought might work, and there is nothing available in my site. Frustrating. Even though I love my host family, it is time to move out into my own place, so this little dilema is taking front priority right now. I´m looking into the community where my other school is and hoping that something is available there. Anything without rats will do, I¨m not being picky right now.

Our training took place in a gorgeous, gorgeous mountain site, and not only was it gorgeous, but it was also about 20 degrees cooler than where I currently live, and that in itself was bliss. I actually wore my North Face fleece everyday and slept with a blanket at night; you have no idea how wonderful that was. It´s summer time here, and it´s hot! Training was good, and I feel like I have a lot of ideas to start working on for the upcoming school year and ways to fund it all. I now know how to write grants and solicite money from a multitude of places :) The things I would love to start up though is somekind of resource room for students who need extra help, teacher training sessions, and my ultimate dream would be to build a library here. Reading for pleasure or really, reading for anything is not done here, and it´s such a life necessity for these kids to have
