Oh the tiredness...

Today marks the end of my 4th week in Bulgaria. I can't believe it. It seems like I've been here for at least 3 months already, although my language skills show that I haven't. I think when you're in a new culture it takes at least twice as long to process and get through anything. I've been given just enough assignments to fill each day, don't speak the language of most of the people around me, and learn (or try to) lots of new language everyday add that all together and you get one tired Krista. Today in Bulgarian language classes I actually nodded off. I couldn't believe it. We also had our first observation while teaching today which was stressful. I'm going to blame the nodding off on stress. Yup, it was the stress. I think my language trainer just laughed at me because of it. They decide on our sites tomorrow and we'll find out where we'll be for the next two years on Monday. Then we'll go visit for a week. I can't believe training is half over with. I feel like I have so much more to learn.
