Day 6, September 29th
Work went fine again today, back in the computer room.
I did some research to seek out specific articles in magazines, registered magazines in the school database and put them in their right spots, organized by edition and date. I did the same with the newspapers, minus the registering in the school database – they don’t do that for the papers.
Still, little influences got to me, so I declined Melanie’s invitation to go to a barbecue and stayed in the apartment, instead. It’s been a long week and I haven’t had time to rest.
Tomorrow morning, our teacher goes back to Germany, so it’ll be just Kujtesa and I – with our guest hosts, of course.
Still no writing done, save for blogging. I’ve had so little time and what time I did have, I used to blog. As for tonight; I just couldn’t focus enough to get writing done. Here’s hoping for a change in that soon; I really would love to write. It feels like ages have passed since I put words to paper, when really, only a week has passed.
It goes to show how tightly things tie into your life. The shortest amount of time separating from that thing and life changes drastically.
Now, I get more sleep, which will hopefully help me. We’ve met our teacher by 09:00 every morning this week. I work at 09:30, as does Kujtesa. I can get in another half hour of sleep without that little rendezvous.
She did give us a list (read: three pages) of questions about the history here, that she wants us to answer before class starts again the 24th of October. I’m not very enthusiastic about figuring out the answers; even Sylvie, someone I work with, doesn’t know some of them.
The weekend approaches rapidly. With any luck, I’ll finish at 12:30 tomorrow, since that’s what time the person in the computer room finishes. On the other hand, I might get sent to the secretaries again. That would mean 17:30.
We’ll see how it goes.
I’m hoping 12:30. Then again – who wouldn’t?
