Fresh Start – Fresh Hopes

Treating each problem as a challenge and not as a nail in your coffin is cructial when you want to achieve your goal.

The   interactive board is finally on the wall. And it responds to my commands, which is splendid. I'm still learning how to use it, and I'm making slow but firm progress.

Course books, I've ordered are still not there so I'll have to make first lessons without them. I have to be flexible. The cable connecting my computer with the projector is also missing, but, hopefully, it will come on Monday. I really struggle to make my lessons work. Everything will be fine. It must be.

And you know what, people help! There are people who really want and can help. You only have to be able to see it and accept it. And be grateful. So, I thank all the good souls that are helping me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The courses begin on Monday, 9 a.m.

 

Ready to Take Off

I have been really busy recently. My summer courses start in a week time and there are still lots of things to take care off. Some obstacles, bigger and smaller, have popped up and not everything has gone according to plan therefore I keep on practicing flexibility – on all fields.

My summer groups are small, but its quality that counts, isn’t it? The classroom of my dreams is going to stay in my dreams for at least two months more. I had to find another place for substitution, and, thanks God, I’ve found one. And quite a decent one, I must admit. I still don’t know if there is the Internet access, though. We’ll see.

Conclusions I have drawn from my 2-months’ experience as a businesswoman are as follows:

  • expenses always exceed the planned amounts
  • obstacles are inevitable but manageable
  • the more you smile the less nervous you look
  • don’t bother with convincing others that your idea is splendid
  • just do what you trust is the best
  • profits will or won’t come – it’s just a side effect– but people’s opinion is immortal (especially in small towns and villages), so be honest, and anything you do, do it with all your heart.

Bearing the above in mind, I take off at 9 a.m. on Monday. Keep your fingers crossed! I’ll report on my progress as frequently as possible.
