Happy Birthday Bill

Today is my brother’s birthday. He is 27!!!!! I think birthdays are important so I am taking a moment out of my day to remember to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! And I am looking forward to speaking with him later…

I haven’t written for nearly a week. Doesn’t mean there haven’t been things to write, as always it means that life is busy and very much so for me. I don’t have internet at home yet, although I have been working to get it. {and the people I speak to on the phone for assistance, have got to be the nicest ever} After I set up my very humble, small apartment, I set to work on my classroom. Since it’s been a year since I’ve had one of my own and I left all my supplies behind in Thailand, it’s been starting from scratch. But this will NOT be a boring teacher entry.

I plan to catch up on writing tonight because even though the largest street parade celebration in all of Europe is happening in Zurich, just 40km away, I’m here in Schaffhausen. And yes, it is Saturday and I am at work. Also hoping to catch up on writing tomorrow since everything is closed in Switzerland on Sundays and I will find myself back at school.

But inbetween all of this, I get to speak to the love of my life daily, who said distance matters?

For now, c’est tout.
