Another Busy Week...

Friday, July 13, 2012

Well, this week went by very slowly. And nothing much happened, to be honest! This week and next week I am working only at the pool, which is a lot of fun and a nice break from the office environment. My brother is a councelor at the camp that I work at too, and it's really fun to see how he interacts with the kids. Plus, the kids always love how similar we look and they think it's really cool that we work together. At camp it was "Holiday Week", which meant that every day we celebrated a different holiday, like St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, and our birthdays. Valentine's day was the best because a few of my favorite campers made me adorable cards, and some even wrote in Spanish! Those definitely reminded me of why I love working with kids so much. It's so rewarding!

This weekend is supposed to be another heat wave, and this Wednesday is supposed to get up to 100 degrees...definitely glad I'm working in a pool! This weekend is going to be dedicated not only to staying cool, but also to writing my Fulbright application essays and following up on my Catalan lessons. Catalan is a really cool language, but it is so difficult! The thing with Italian and Spanish is that pretty much every letter you see in a word, you pronounce. But Catalan follows the French language in the sense that not everything is pronounced, which makes it difficult when you're not hearing it spoken. But I'm trying my best and already learning how to say a few important sentences! I'm hoping that learning Catalan will help me with my Fulbright too, since I'm applying to work in Andorra, where their official language is Catalan. We'll see how it goes!

That's about it out here. I'll be back in Boulder in about a month and a half and I can't believe it! It'll be good to be back!
