So day two wasn’t much better although I did get a bit of sleep last night. Right now this whole thing feels like a crappy job. I wake up early and walk to school then spend the entire day cramming my brain full of things I barely comprehend. By lunchtime I have a headache. I haven’t been in an academic setting in 20 years and my poor brain simply isn’t used to thinking this hard for this many hours straight.
I will adapt no doubt but after spending all day in class I find it very hard to try to practice and study vocabulary at home because I am simply sick of it by then. However, I realize that my lack of vocabulary is exactly why I am struggling so it’s a double edged sword. I guess this weekend will be spent memorizing vocabulary. I need to memorize 500 words a week!!!!!
For the first time, I am really homesick. I was walking to school yesterday and I passed an elementary school. The sounds of children laughing and playing caused me to miss my kids terribly and I had to wipe away the tears as I walked away. I really, really, really miss mi familia. This is going to seem like the longest 4 weeks of my life.
