Dude. Today was a handful. We woke up and had to be at class by 8am, which is always a struggle in itself. So we were placed in Spanish levels for class (level one rockin’) and had grammar class for two hours, then two hours of conversational Spanish. This was a challenge porque my group has some pretty wide gaps in the levels. We range from no experience with Spanish at all, to rusty high school Spanish. But we made it through the first day, so the rest can’t be too bad, right?
Next we had lunch for an hour and then the technical class and lab. During class we are starting off by going over popular equipment that we will be fixing and learning about them. So that for an hour and a half. Then Lab. I'm not sure what your average lab will be like but today we just looked up the names for tools that we have in our bag and wrote those down.
But, overall the worst part of the day was that is must have been at least nine thousand degrees in our classroom. I know I wasn’t the only one on the verge of passing out because of the intense heat. Even with four fans, we were still all dying. This made is so hard to stay awake and alert to take notes, but I did surprisingly well. I think all of the classes will be interesting and easy to study for because the application is so direct and obvious.
So about halfway though the class Charlotte looked at me and said, “How do you feel about a siesta later?” and my answer was obviously, “Oh yeah! So hard!” Which is where the title is derived from. WE walked into our room, stripped off our clothes, put on shorts and a t-shirt, cranked our fans and haven’t left the bed since.
Good thing we have the weekend to look forward to! Hoping to plan a beach weekend or some other trip with some amigos.
