I also started my Master's program today for "International Teaching" through Bridgewater State University that is located in Boston. The professor is from the US and has a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor. If you know me, I too indulge in the art of sarcasm every now and again(aka all the time). Most of the Ecuadorians think he is complete jerk because they can not pick up on the undertones. I think he is hilarious. I am definitely going to be the comic relief of this class so I guess being voted class clown for my "Senior Superlative" wasn't so far from the truth.
All I know for certain is that if I keep unrolling my yoga mat each morning to say hello to God and take a breath before my hectic days starts plus continue to reach out for help I will be doing my job to the best of my ability. Ready or not, here I come.
