Year End

The end of the year is upon us.  Three more days of work, and most everyone will be hitting the road for another part of the world, wherever they reckon home to be.

The school year has wound down to the point that teachers and staff are now required to be at work, however there is absolutely nothing left to do, so folks watch movies on their computers, tie up any loose planning ends (well, really, that was done last week), and lounge around and drink tea with the Arab teachers, or try to find something else productive to do with their time.

This is the time of year when it’s easy to forget what a tough place this is to work most of the other days on the calendar.  We’ve all got starry eyes as we plan our summers.  July 4th everything will be over, and we’ll be free to go where we want, when we want, and enjoy life for a while.  It’s even hard for those of us who didn’t get adequate flight allowances (keeping the old fingers crossed, maybe they’ll address that yet) to be depressed–summer is finally here, and we can forget about the myriad trials we endured for a while.

My wife and I are very much looking forward to our summer adventures.  Now, lest I spoil the fun of sharing what we’ve got in store when it actually arrives, I shall sign off.  Come, summer, come quickly!

  1. I found your blog last night and I have read every post so far. Thank you so much for doing this for people considering a job with Teach Away/ADEC. My wife goes for her interview in a week or so. We are very excited that we might be over there in sept/oct and ready to start our adventure.

    Have they fixed your flight allowance? Also I would just like to say I hope that if we do get to come over that my wife and I can meet you one day. Have a good night and cant wait to read more.
