Just another traveling twenty-something with a blog.
Hello, is this thing on? It’s been a hot second since I wrote last and I’m sorry to all my loyal followers, but I’ve honestly been having too much fun! It’s true what they say: You can’t have a social life AND a blog. I’m pretty sure Andy Warhol coined that phrase. You can quote me on that.
Anyway, I wrapped up my TEFL course, passing the grammar exam by the skin of my teeth. Holy crap, I don’t know grammar at all! Luckily I made it through the course. *Hold Applause Until End*
The end of the course was a shit show. The last week of my TEFL course consisted of a final teaching project, exam studying and finishing up late work. Not to mention the slight freak out of not having a job to pay for the fabulous lifestyle that I have become accustomed to living.
Almost two weeks ago I moved to a new flat right in the center of the city! I love the location, it’s directly off of La Rambla and only two blocks down from Placa Catalunya. So, cool guys, come stalk me. I think I technically live in “El Reval,” which according to some tourist website I read last night is a seedy area of the city, but I love it! I have three other flatmates. They’re great! One flatmate is Venezuelan and another is American, but is fluent in Spanish, so I am speaking way more Spanish! Es bueno.
Also, I got a started a job at a language academy. A language academy basically handles all of the functions of English classes without a school having to facilitate it. I am teaching both business and regular English courses, as well as some private tutoring. Fingers crossed I don’t spend my rent money on shoes and a cool hat. Oh wait it already happened. Thank goodness gluten free bread is cheap here.
Life is good in BCN!!!! Anyone want to come visit?
