here are some pics of what I did last Thursday with my last long day off before leaving Friday for Texas. Just for the record, I set out 40 tulip bulbs, 40 small allium bulbs, 5 large allium bulbs, 6 asiatic lilies, and 4 peonies.... this was all stuff I ordered last summer before the job opportunity came up. anyway everything is in theg round now so whenever I DO come back they'll still be there. ha
oh yeah i also planted two rows of daylily seedlings from the back porch, they won't bloom until their second summer so that will be fun to see.
I am really enjoying the training. If I can handle being around the other instructors here on my team. As i've gotten older it's difficult to try and not be selfish and expecting people to interact with me first instead of me showing interest first, if that makes sense. anyway as of now I think I've been very diplomatic and professional. Of course I am also extremely optomistic so I want to keep everyone sort of encouraged I think. As of now I hope that the team will chill and give all the training we are getting a chance. I hope I can gain confidence in the team's "expertise" in language aquisition that we are all supposed to have. including me to! ha
But I do really really like the program here at the base so far, and can't wait to get more training as the week goes on. I guess I sort of look forward to doing a successful job in Afghan so that I would have opportunties to hire on by DLI either in other countries or here in San Antonio. worth consideration at least.......
