This was my first day of work and afternoon classes. I came home exhausted and frustrated from the intensity of the afternoon classes.
I have 3.5 hour work days. Each day I spend an hour in a classroom usually with a different teacher. I work with three teachers bilingual teacher: Toni, Juan, & Ascen. I usually just help annunciate words and keep control in the class. In the afternoons, I have clases particulares. These private lessons give me about 15€ per child per month. This adds up to an extra 500€ a month. In these classes, I teach a class of 6-13 students by myself. I have four groups– each one is taught two hours a week. I am slowly getting into the rhythm of this job and I’m starting to be more responsible in planning for these lectures.

Orientation in Murcia city. I met some people from the Auxiliares Facebook page like Michiel De Wit, my Belgian friend. I had to return to Jumilla after the orientation for my afternoon lessons. I came home from my lessons to a home cooked meal from Amissa. It was delicious.

This night Kat joined us at San Augustin for the menu del dia. Amissa goofed and tried things that weren’t good — like sopa de mariscos which tasted like cat food. I scored with my order. We drank a few cups of wine. All for 10€ each. My the end of the dinner I had pains in my stomach from being so full. They didn’t go away until two hours of digestion. We walked home from the restaurant. I captured a grasshopper and had no where to store it but my hands.
I can’t seem to remember what happened Thursday.
