Yesterday was my last day as an English assistant for the second year. I’m glad to no longer have to drive nearly an hour to work, but not so happy about no longer having an income. I have a feeling I won’t be able to find another teaching job until September – maybe I’ll even be an assistant again – so I’m trying to plan out what to do this summer. I’ve got plenty of paperwork to keep me busy for a while (applying for unemployment, renewing my passport, perfecting my CV and lettre de motivation), but I think May will be a sad month for me. Jessica is leaving to go back to the US on my 26th birthday. I lose a friend and get old on the same day.
But congrats to the new American assistants for 2008-9 who received their acceptance e-mail this week. I’m surprised the embassy finally figured out how to use e-mail!
