The days grow longer...

For a while there the sun was setting before I left work, but at the moment it is graciously going down just as I'm walking home, so I get lovely views like this. This particular cloud seemed to fill about half the sky, and the bright moon right above it looked vastly more impressive in person.

Today was tiring, but not too bad. The main down point was my Listening class, in which we spent the entire hour on one single activity because *no one* could do it. Their textbook had sample phone messages (taken by someone's "roommate") with mistakes in them, and the students were supposed to listen to the original phone calls and fix the messages so that they're accurate. They listened to the messages about three times last class and once again this class, and still no one had a clue. I had to take the script and read every single phone call line by line, repeating each line and even acting it out multiple times, in order to get any answers out of anyone. And they weren't even that hard. By the end of class, I was ready to collapse at my desk. I was just glad it was *last* so I didn't have to do anything afterward.

One bright spot, however, was that one of the seniors who got one of the treats I took yesterday (I believe she picked the banana bread) brought me a present in return at lunchtime. Isn't that just sweet?
