Day 5

After yesterday’s health issues I needed a shower and a good meal when I got to the house the lunch which is at 3pm was waiting some veggies and piece of meat that was cooked dry and tough I managed to cut it into small pieces so I could chew it and get it down. I asked about taking a shower and the lady told me in spanish and english that the water pressure was to low at this time of day and that there wouldn’t be much hot water. I let the issue go for a while but later on at 8pm when we have what is called a light supper which consisted of crackers chips some sort of cheese mix and spoonful of beans I asked again about a shower and she said I could use the shower in the laundry room that it might be a little warm if I used just the hot water.

After the “Dinner” and I use the term very loosely, I got my shower stuff and went to take a shower and she was right the water was cold and there was no pressure. I did the best I could and washed up. I was drying myself off and noticed the water heater above the clothes washer and the heating dial was set on the lowest setting possible there is now way there ever would be hot water.

This afternoon I arrived and found that lunch which is supposed to be the main meal of the day was going to be rice and beans! If this is the main meal I’m more than disappointed in these arrangements. I’m talking to the coordinator first by text then in person on Monday in the mean time I’ll eat at a restaurant.

As for class I’m disappointed in myself as I didn’t feel I did as well as I should be able to at this stage and that has left me frustrated. I don’t seem to always understand the instructions and make way to many errors to make me satisfied with my performance. I will soldier on and see how far I can get then evaluate the situation for now I’ not pleased.

    Also I would think if the accommodations were satisfying it would put you in a better frame of mind overall, and your class time and studies would be more satisfying as well. I’d be contacting the coordinator too!

    • The lady of the house and I had a talk and she is making some changes so things are looking up on that front. A day off and some fun with friends has improved my outlook also. I know learning a language is a process and sometimes a rough one.
