Swamped in study. This week’s unit is twice as big as any other. I have completed all the reading and all five of the quiz’s and the peer presentation for this week’s unit of study for my TEFL qualification – next I have two assignments to complete by Sunday. All about grammar – which frankly is full of terminology and rules and not too much fun. But like jazz you can’t break a rule until you know it. I am in Week Six. And so far each of my assignments has achieved a 100% grade.
I have two live lectures today. Tomorrow A meeting with my organic farmer tenant for the West Side. Tomorrow night a group of farm volunteers for the weekend- ( they are bringing their own chef to cook for us all so I am not about to complain).
And that is all, I think? ( how about that for bad grammar!)
Oh, I need to say I am not that clever on the quiz portions of each unit. I average 80% on those.
But I am rolling Flat Out! I am moving fast and methodically and ruthlessly. And flat out!
As usual, last night I laid out a skeleton plan for all the written work to be achieved today, my desk is a picture of organization. John dropped his cap on my desk yesterday and I almost LOST MY MIND! There are so many little pieces of paper, all in order, laid in vertical rows ready to be downloaded onto the screen. A gust of wind would destroy me – let alone a THROWN HAT skidding across the surface of my desk!
Reading Freeman and Freeman. The discussion as to whether words are acquired or learned. Merciful heavens!
All is good on the home front. The animals are all in order following their routines and hunkering down our if the cold wind that blasted us for the last few days. I will be back into the Fellowship Lounge when I have passed the half way mark on my assignment today. And remind me to call the vet for information on pregnancy checks for Del and Molly. At least I can get those scheduled. And there was something else. What was that.
I have started sending myself txts when I need to remember something and am not close to my work/ diary. It works REALLY well. Except when I forget to send the txt. I will check the lists for the phone call just in case I have to even though I have forgotten what I am meant to be remembering anyway. ( more bad grammar!).
We are having a cold snap. Quite, quite cold! But manageable!
I have a tight neck from crouching over a desk!
