Killing Time

It's been a while since I've posted anything new. I haven't even written about my trip to Cambodia with my sister, or losing my job (one of them anyway), or joining a dance class. The last one's fairly recent so I guess I better start with that.

I have a lot of time these days and I've been itching to do yoga, so last Sunday, Thea and I walked to a nearby spa/exercise place. We found out that they have 2 yoga classes on Sunday and a ballroom dancing class three times a week. While I've had my share of dancing in school programs and the like, I've always had a difficult time learning dance steps. But I figured since I know Thea really wants to dance, I have a lot of time and it didn't cost much to enroll (especially coz she paid half of my fee), it wouldn't hurt to try it for a month. We asked the receptionist if the instructor spoke English and she told us that one of the two instructors could... Turns out we got the non-English speaking one. It's alright, though, the other students speaks a little English and we get by by shuffling along with them. The instructor is pretty good and makes you feel like you can dance well when he leads you. On the downside, he smells a little funky but I've smelled worse so it's no problem.

About losing my job, it wasn't that big a surprise. I was just a substitute at the preschool anyways, and I knew that once their relatives from the Philippines arrived (all the teachers are related to the owner), I'd be out of there. That was two weeks ago, and I miss the kids :P

These days I have a lot of time on my hands.

Last week I had 7 classes at the English school but this week I only got 3.

I read a lot and ride my bicycle around.

Sometimes I go out with students or friends but for the most part, I'm a bum.

And I don't like it.

But I don't want to work all week long at the English school either.


So I'm stuck.
