Today, I am grateful for a good day.
It was potentially one of the best days I’ve had this year.
It all started when I was waiting at the bus stop this morning. I saw a fellow speechie friend drive past. We waved to each other, and I thought he’d just keep driving. But being the nice guy he is, he turned around and came back to pick me up. Thanks to him, I got to uni earlier than I expected. Also, I was in such a good mood that I was actually ridiculously productive. I managed to work on an assignment for a good 2 hours, and then I worked on session plans for Thursday’s clinic, as well as preparing for tutoring in the afternoon.
I also managed to have lunch with two lovely ladies, and I really enjoyed their company.
Tutoring also went very well. My 9 y.o. student revealed to me that he is, in fact, Batman. I feel like I’m building really good rapport with him because we have so much in common. We both love spaghetti bolognese, superheroes and broccoli. He’s such a sweet kid.
My Year 7 student cancelled today’s session, which meant I finished work an hour earlier and managed to get home before it was dark. I’m a bit bummed that she cancelled because I worked hard to plan the session today – but it’s all good. It means I’ve already planned next week’s session with her 🙂
I got home to find out that, after a long, tedious search, my brother finally found someone to take him for placement this semester.
All in all, it was a good day. I’m so grateful, because it was exactly what I needed this week.
