first week of *proper work* at my organization
Guys, I’ll be honest with you…commuting to work for an hour every day is not exactly my things. With my head rolling around every morning in the tram I always tell myself in the afternoon while going back: “You should DO something in the tram, it’s so much time wasted!“ But I don’t. And I don’t know why. Do you know?
In Trendum it’s time to start proper work now (as Joana always tells me), however, since we haven’t met the principal of the school we’re going to be working in so far, there’s not a lot of great work for us. So we’re just correcting forms (some of them are kinda amusing to say the least), planning a presentation and games for a youth exchange coming up at the end of this month (no cleaning, no making food, spending time working in a team - what else could I ask for?) as well as doing tasks that take too much time for the other busy members of Trendum right now. Like checking all the markers, checking all the pens and sharpening all the pencils. My arm still kinda hurts. But after all hey, we’re finally working, we’re finally productive. After coming home in the afternoon we always have enough time left to figure out our stuff, cooking, cleaning and such. Living alone for the first time was scary to me, but now that I’m actually doing it, it doesn’t seem half as difficult as I imagined it to be. Plus a great extra: Opera (entertainment in general) is super cheap here in Czech Republic, yesterday I went to The Barber of Seville for only 140kč (around 5,50€) and guess what - they even had English subtitles! This really got me interested in going there more often, next time ballet maybe.
Oh, and Czech…my dear Czech. We had our first lesson on Tuesday and my brain is still giddery from all the words. Sometimes Czech is quite close to German, which is a plus, but since there are also a lot of times when it’s *completely* different, you can basically never trust it. False friends, guys, I tell you.
We will see, what the next days will be like!
