went to school and was very nervous

Now, I love teaching. Really.  But I have found that I get more nervous over my students’ exams than my own.  Why? Well, I guess I figure I can only mess up my own life so much.  But what if I mess up and write the wrong letter or the wrong number and suddenly I’ve screwed over a bunch of other folks?

Speaking of exams… two down (plus a project), one (plus a project and a beastly long awful paper) to go.  That awful paper and my exam day Thursday have taught me that I’m not so great at switching between languages.  Exam day was Polish exam (no big deal… writing a couple of questions about a soap opera we’ve been watching) and then Politics and Markets (who knows). My English writing skills were a little… impaired after taking the Polish exam.  I bet you a dollar that the grader will think I’m not a native English speaker.
Ready for winter break and some sunshine…


let’s try this

Facebook’s just not cutting it for me anymore.  Yeah, I like to tell you all about my life… but I could do without the drama of who wrote on whose wall–and who didn’t comment on my status.

Has my life improved since clicking that magical “deactivate” button? (yeah, I know, I haven’t *really* quit yet if I just deactivated) Well, not really. But I also don’t really miss it.

So here’s my intro.  No guarantees that anything exciting will go down on this blog, but maybe it’ll help us to keep in touch anyway.


Mi simple ne povas resti ĉe Facebook. Mi ja ŝatas rakonti al vi pri mia vivo… sed tute malplaĉas al mi la dramo.  Kiu “satis” kion kaj kiu *ankoraŭ* ne respondis ĉe mia muro? Tio ne gravu.

Ĉu mi vivo estas pli bona post la magia malaktivigo? Nu, ne vere. Sed ne mankas al mi la retejo, do jen komenco.

Do nun mi komencis tion ĉi, kaj poste mi afiŝos pli–eblas ke nenio interesos vin, sed espereble ni almenaŭ restos en kontakto.
