For those who haven't been keeping track: I've made a career switch by saying goodbye to my life as a youth worker to teach English at a high school in my hometown. The school year started last week and I SURVIVED! ;-) Just kidding, I seriously love working at Houtens and I thoroughly enjoy teaching and being able to work with my students.
I already have a cute and funny anecdote. I was catching up on the summer holidays with one of my classes (I also taught them English last year). All of a sudden one of my students said: 'Bao-Nhi, you've got some serious swag!' Me: 'Excuse me?' Student: 'You know, swag: S-W-E-K' This is how you would spell swag in Dutch phonetically. I tried to keep a straight face… so adorable! haha
I must admit that I still need to find a way to balance teaching, private life, social life, study life, volunteering and my workshops, but I'm sure that I will get used to it in a couple of weeks. At the end of the day, I still need to clear my thoughts. I've been turning to my journal a lot these days so chances are that I won't be posting much on this blog these coming weeks. Seriously sorry for that, just need to give myself time to adjust to this new life schedule.
