Work saves us from three great evils: boredom, vice and need.

I start my Seasonal Summer Job tomorrow and I am excited about it and nervous. I did this 2yrs ago and while I had fun I didn't have the best experience due to the people I worked with. But Cee asked for me personally to come and do this so here I am. I'm a different location with different people, The location itself is smaller which means less kids; 54 in total; and no summer lunch program madness. I also believe the timing is good as this will give me a much needed break from the insanity that is my family at the moment.

Monday's for the next two months are going to be really long since I will be going straight to Spanish class after work. I am still really resentful about having to relearn and improve my Spanish just to make my chances of a full time job better but that seems to be the way of the world now so I can't do much about that. But I don't have to like it.

My Spanish teacher is a really nice guy. When he asked us to say something in Spanish to see if any of us were at any level I decided to say the word 'Ocean'; someone else had already used water and milk. So I said 'Oceà' which made him look at me weird. And he said say that again, so I did. He then looked at me and asked if I was Spanish; which I thought was odd; and I said. My Step-Dad is half Spanish however on his Mother's side. He asked where she was from so I said Key West Florida was where she was from but her family came from Spain. For which he then said AH HA. He then explained to everyone that I was right and Oceà was Ocean in English but it was the Catalan way of saying it. Which makes sense since Dora; my Step-Dad's Mother; spoke a mix of Spanish and Catalan. So yeah, I already learned something so maybe the class won't be so bad. Now I just have to master words that start with 'Q'. -_-
