It's been a while

Hello to all the 3 readers who still come on hopeful to find a new blog. At last, I am writing a new one.

I've been extremely busy the past few months which almost resulted in a nervous breakdown or at least a smashed window here and there. The past 10 weeks I've been an intern at a school, teaching kids the wonderful magic of the English language. In my first few weeks I already had a very distressing moment as the class decided to go all out against me. Luckily I managed to control them in the weeks to come. Right now I'm in my last week of the internship, and there is a project going on so my duties for now will be to guide the students through the project. Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy as my Grammar teacher would say.
It's a tough job, teaching. That is one thing I know for sure now. For a moment I thought it would be good for me to move to Amsterdam and start doing a course in English at the Uni. Considering the current situation in the Netherlands regarding studying (if you have 1 year of study delay for whatever reason, you have to pay a fine of 3000 euros), I decided to finish this course. I actually started liking teaching very much, although I'm not sure how I will feel about it in a while. At least I will have a grade which is beneficial.

Last week I had exams. The pressure of internship was added up to the pressure of learning for these necessary evils. It meant I had to skip the studytrip to Bath, Cardiff and Bristol. I just wouldn't be able to manage. I'm still waiting for my grades and I hope the results are good. Don't we always hope that?

Apart from my study load at school, there have been two other things I've been working on.

The first thing is arranging meet&greet winners for the KatyPerryForum. Katy has been very generous in providing us 5 passes for each show, and of course winners have to be chosen. It seems easy but it's a tough job. I received daily emails from fans who were not eligible, begging me if I could give them tickets. It's tough being put in that position of constantly having to reject people but the rewarding side of it is what makes it easier to do. I enjoy receiving emails of people who are so grateful that they've met their idol. It gives me a lot of joy.

Also, as many of you might know my other blog Fairytales before Dark, several others and myself are working in creating a book out of it. It will be wonderfully illustrated and it's going to be edited soon and I seriously can't wait to show you the finished piece!

Well, that was all I had to say for now. Until next time!
