Before I completely pass out here on my bed, I wanted to say hello and to ask you to please tell all the nice people who left comments on my last entry that I'm sorry I didn't reply, but that I'm thankful to them all. My new profession is very tiring, especially now that I'm working a few extra hours, but I love it. Even with my three problem students ^_^; I usually have little energy left at the end of the day to do anything.
If you don't believe me, journal-chan, you should see my new house. I'm STILL not finished unpacking some stuff, even with all the things I sold or donated back home. The house is a lot smaller than the one I had back there, although I think it's homier, prettier and the little area in the back will look beautiful once I have a chance to start my garden. I'm still getting used to some things, like the bottled water and the constant appearance of spiders in my bathroom no matter how many I squeamishly squash with my sandals. That's one thing I hadn't really expected
The whole thing has been a very big adjustment, journal-chan, probably the biggest adjustment in my life. I'm happy, but it still feels weird sometimes being here, and hearing English only in my classrooms, and technically being an outsider. Although my fellow teachers and neighbors have all been so warm and welcoming, probably because I speak the language fluently, and it's made things easier. I even am becoming friends with the woman who runs the corner store where I go to at least four times a week to buy this orange juice I absolutely love ^_^
I haven't had a chance to do much drawing, journal-chan, although I have been sketching things. Maybe as soon as things calm down a bit I can get back to drawing things for DA. I've had this really crazy idea for a DID type of story or series of drawings that came from an amazing dream I had. I think my DA friends might appreciate it
Okay, journal-chan, I can barely stay awake, so I'm ending here. Please give my love to all my DA friends, and tell them that even if I'm not responding to them individually, I am so grateful to them all and can't wait to get back in touch with them. Besides, I'll need to now, I don't want my non-class English getting rusty
Huggles to you, my beloved journal-chan!
P.S.: Journal-chan, since there is no emoticon for "drop dead tired," I'll just use my favorite one, even if it's hardly accurate right now.
