We did a bit of shopping today, and the shops now have their winter gear out on sale. Greeeat… My favourite season will soon be coming to an end 😔 So I focussed on stocking up on cold weather gear, as I felt like I was severely lacking on this front last winter. But we did just arrive from SINGAPORE, the place with an endless summer. So my wardrobe was definitely more tropical more than anything else when we first arrived in this city. I had to quickly stock up on a few winter items when we finally settled in 😆
N then headed back to the office again to do some more work 😔 And so I decided to continue with my TEFL course, and prepare yet another lesson plan! They’re quite time consuming for me to do, firstly because I don’t really know what I’m doing, so I constantly have to refer to my notes; and secondly, I’m not very creative, so I’m constantly racking my brain trying to come up with fun and interesting things to do in class! But it’s a new skill, so I have to be patient with myself 😊 So I probably spent twice as long preparing this lesson plan as it would take me to teach the damn lesson! 😂 I can’t wait until I get this skill under my belt!
And then we headed down to the gym once N got back from the office. I did another round of Jive kicks 🦵 They are still an absolute killer. I don’t know how many rounds of Jive I have to do until this gets easier, coz at the moment, they’re still torture! 😖
To give you a bit of an idea of what it is that I’m doing, check out the first five seconds of this video on YouTube. He’s doing it mega fast, and doing a fancy double kick – not to mention dancing really nicely as well! – but hopefully you get the gist. Now imagine doing that for an entire 3.5-minute song, and you get the self-inflicted torture that I’m putting myself through. And I’m certainly not looking as fresh and excited as he does in the video! 😂 So now my legs feel really heavy, and my whole body is sore from the whole session at the gym. I guess looking at it positively, you could say that I had a very successful session today! 😜
