On the plus side, I am teaching 4 classes of Advanced Conversation. So I only have one prep. Score. AND...I don't have classes on Friday (except for the occasional department meeting). DOUBLE SCORE.
In other news, I've seen the rat in my hostel a couple times recently, but I think that she and I have come to an understanding: I wont bother her if she doesn't bother me. At least I really really hope she's reached that understanding, because it would super suck to wake up to a rat chewing on my face. Then I can be pretty certain there was a miscommunication (notice I am calling her a "she", that's to make me feel better, because everyone knows girl animals are nicer).
In any case I won't have to worry about that too much longer because I decided to rent the spare room in my program director's flat. I'll be moving in tomorrow.
So all in all, a pretty productive day. Now I need to get back to lesson planning, so stop distracting me :)
