Question

Currently attending a branch of an American university in Spain, planning to transfer back to Texas next year. Double major English-Spanish, maybe minor in German. (Yeah, I like languages, too). My friends get mad at me for not taking "real" classes and having to kill myself studying. So I waste my time on forums and web comics instead of writing my papers. So what? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Work? I'm in Spain! Spaniards have no work ethic! Well, at least not the ones who have left the front lobby of the apartment building half-finished for weeks. (Si hay españoles aquí, lo siento mucho.) [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well, last semester I was tutoring some Spanish kids in English, but then their parents decided to put them into some official school program. Go figure. Really should find someone else, as the other kid I was babyisitting for went to Ukraine with his mom, and all my money comes from that loan my parents got and won't be able to repeat next year... anyone know of some good scholarships? I might could work at the Wal-Mart photo lab again this summer...

Let's see, what else? My weight is my own. It's not about weight, anyway, it's about inches. My waistline's my own, too. Oh, and lack of sleep seems to make me babble. Bye now.

Your waistline is your own? My waistline is my kids fault! I'm 5ft tall and had 3 9lb babies! And I was just kidding about weight [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I'm a pianist: classical training, specialized in traditional and modern sacred music (minored in organ). After teaching children to play piano for quite a few years (highly recommended for anyone needing to learn patience! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ), I am taking time out to do my own projects and find out what's next for me.
