Hello my fellow bloggers! How is your day so far? Going well I hope? That’s good. Today I am going to talk about my spring break. As some of you may know, I am studying abroad in Scotland for my Masters. Woot! This past week was our mid-semester break. You would think that I, as a traveler, as a young person, as an American abroad, would go travelling during this time. Well, that wasn’t me.
I spent my spring break in the library, gym, and my house. It is a sad sad day for me. You see, I had school work to do.I have three essays due on the same day this month, ranging from 2000-3000 words each, plus another 3000 word-essay due the week after that. My life is a daily struggle. But, I am glad that I have used this time to catch up on my school work. I completely finished essays and the third one, I can finish in half-a-day. The one that is due the week after that is the only one that I haven’t started. But, I’ll get to that next week. I don’t want to overload my brain. I still made no progress on my thesis. I am getting slightly worried I am behind, but I’ve talked to my classmates and friends here, and for the most part, they are on the same stage as me. Maybe I am just being a worry-wart.
The other things I did during the break, besides going to the gym, was finally passed my TEFL exam. TEFL, if you don’t know means Teach English as a Foreign Language. It is a completely random move for me. But, TEFL247 was having a special on their online courses, for only $50USD, which is a steal. I was looking around and the average TEFL course (140 Hours) was at least a minimum of $300USD. I am not sure if I’ll ever use it, to be honest, but I am still not sure what I want to do in life, so I rather keep my options open. Maybe I can teach in Japan or something. I have no idea. I still have to decide what I am going to do come September. Do I travel? Can I get a part time job for three months teaching? This would be a lot easier if I had an EU passport……
I caught up with all my spring animes! Mainly Kill La Kill, and Golden Time. I’ll maybe write a review on them later this week, if I have nothing to post about. I also caught up with reading Haikyuu!!. It is such an adorable manga about a boy’s high school volleyball team. I don’t know what it is, but sports manga really gets to me. To relax, and pass time, I’ve been learning how to color in manga, and make graphics. You can see my progress on my Tumblr. It is the shading that really gets to me. I mess up on that, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to color in dark tones. But, I am getting better with each coloring. It is really quite fun for me. I am not getting frustrated or anything, which is good.
And, so I don’t sound too totally lame, Photoshop techniques are a great skill to have on your CV/Resume. So, I am preparing for my future career, while being nerdy at the same time. Go me!
That is all for now. I never realized how much of a boring person I am until I started blogging again. Sorry for all those who read my blog and are bored. I’ll try to find something interesting to write about. For the rest of the day today, I am going to chill, and color some manga,
Peace, Love, and Pokemon.
