Current news

I feel like I haven't written in awhile.  Well, that's not true, I haven't blogged in awhile---I write just about every day in my prayer journal, even if it just says, "Amen" for a whole day.

I started a blog last week called "Goals" and it has all my goals I made for myself (involving Prayer, Working out, Sleep, Spanish, Living in the moment) and as much as I'd like to finish it, I may not get to it as my motivation (not to complete my goals, that's actually going great, but to write about it, has depleted.)

The truth is, I haven't had much time to blog and write in the past two weeks since school started.  I'm busier than I've ever been, more tired at the end of each day, and La Isla hasn't even started yet.  What's really doing it is that I have started to assist teaching for one of the English classes.  Add that to the presentations Jenny and I have been working for Trabajo Social and I'm beat by the time 2:30 rolls around.

I love teaching.  I gave my first class this past week in my junior Conversation English class leading discussions on "Machismo" and how it affects young teens today.  I didn't choose the topic, my teacher Eder did.  Little did he know how much I care about that topic.

Anyway, I feel comfortable in my skin and more at peace at school than I've ever been.  Going to bed earlier (10ish p.m.), getting up at the same time (6 a.m.), making my bed every day, getting to go to daily Mass, praying regularly, working out, I feel good and I feel confident.  I'm also beat at the end of each day.  I guess that's what I prayed for though, to lay it out all on the field each day, to feel like I put everything in.  I'm only here for about 4 1/2 more months and it's going to go fast, so I have to make the best of it.  Although I'm tired each day, I think to myself, "Well, that's a good problem to have."

Well, that's all I got for now.  Oh yeah, my charger to my computer no longer works, meaning I'm computer-less.  So that'll limit my computer use-age for sure.  Whoever's reading this, I hope and pray all is well on your end, too.

  1. It must be hard to be so beat all the time, but it is worth it if you feel you are giving your all! Best wishes with everything, Matt!
