Summer ends

Standard

     Everyone talks about time, and everyone agrees in one thing: “Time goes by so fast”. My last post was just 4 months ago, I totally failed my goal of posting every month.
Fortunately, I’ve been very busy, in this new town I’ve got the chance to start teaching English again, the City Hall lend me the place, and 24 students of various ages came to class this summer.
I’ve also been fortunate to receive family visits, because of the distance is not so easy for them to come more often, so we really value every moment of it. 🙂
In addition to those advertures, I’m still on my way to standardize my academic life, since one moves from one city to another its a bit chaotic, now the differences are enormous between two continents, so I must work very hard to validate all my entire academic life, always studying something and doing exams, after 7 years I’m not done yet, but someday I’ll get it.
The most important thing is to make a balance between family, professional life and set priorities, and always remember to thank the people who support and encourage me to keep on going, even on days I want to quit.:D

     For the moment feeling blessed and doing everything on my power to be happy.

Voices

Standard

Sometimes when I’m alone, for example when I walk through a long corridor, I start hearing voices from the past. I mean, it’s not that I’m crazy, it’s just that my brain starts to rewind to specific scenes and situations that once I lived with certain people. But I recently read in a psychology magazine that our memories are not entirely true, they are what we have interpreted as a result of our own experiences. That made me wonder why some of us keep on making the samemistakes.

I’m not going to let my daytime worries creep into my dreams, as one wise friend once told me: ” We have first world problems“.  That’s totally true. So let’s start by not listening to the voices from the past, and start learning other languages instead, so that from now we can listen only  to new voices.
