I'm not exactly sure since I have seemed to have lost my sense of time, but I believe this is my third day in Barcelona. To say I love this city is an understatement. I am obsessed with it!
I should begin with my host family. They have been so, so, SO great! I immediately felt loved. And sweet Blanca welcomed me to my new room with that sign. It was also her birthday today (November babies hooray!) and we celebrated with crêpes!
I also have met the majority of my students. I work mostly with 1st grade boys and about two hours with 1st grade girls. Although it's only been two days, I already love them so much. Honestly, it's hard not to fall in love with them since they are so cute!
I also found out I will be working with a small group of 4th grade "chickas"...AND 17-18 year olds! I've never worked with students above 5th grade, so im pretty excited to see how it goes! (Although they'll most likely be taller than me ha!)
I should also mention how wonderful my Spain teacher is! She is so sweet, helpful, and you can tell how much she adores the kids. I am very happy.
I guess that's the theme of this entire post. How happy I am!! I don't think it would be too presumptious to say that Barcelona is going to change my life in the best way possible. :)
Oh! And I should also mention that I got extremely lost last night. First, I took the metro the wrong way. Then, once I got to my stop, I took the wrong street. Luckily I found a nice girl with a dog who spoke just enough English to help me out haha!
But for now, it's time for bed! All week long, the school is competing against each other, and my class (Team Azul) is celebrating their day tomorrow. So that means I need a lot of sleep ha! Adios! :)
PS: This is my fourth try at this post. Between that and texting, please excuse any spelling and grammatical errors. Gracias! :)
PSS: I should be adding pictures soon under the tab!
