#WeekChallenge: Journal Writing: Day 4


Teaching/ Work:
A new lesson marathon today with 15 minute breaks in between. Sometimes I wonder, have I taken up more than I can handle?
Will be working with videos today, two wonderful sites I use are: Kieran Donaghy's Film English and David Deubelbeiss' English Central.  Wonderful ideas with prompts for discussion in the first one and lots of vocabulary and pronunciation activities in the second one! I have had the luck to meet Kieran Donaghy in person this March in the Thessaloniki convention and experience all these wonderful ideas!!
Today it is also reading time, since we are preparing for the TIE exam with one of my students and the book we have chosen is "Great Expectations".

Gym:
TRX class with Penelope today at the new gym. This person is the most positive person I have ever met! Always with a smile with her face and lots and lots of energy! I am also taking a friend to try out the new gym as well!

Health/ psychology :
Still a bit under the weather, but I keep going. I am not in the best of moods. I think I have reached my limits. It is a great responsibility to know that everything depends on you financially. I really don't know what to do, I will have to give up a lot of things to support the family all by myself and I can't help wondering how this summer will be... with no income at all? And what if I get sick?
