Yay, I can finally chill on my bed. What a hectic week!
Monday I stayed home most of the day studying, until I went volunteering from 2:30-5:20pm. I am tutoring a 7yrs old boy from Syria. After getting home I had just enough time to drink a cuppa tea and get changed before I went off to a Rotary meeting, and I came home that night at 9ish pm.
Tuesday I again stayed home most the day and studied, I also had a piano student at 3:15pm.
Wednesday I did the usual grocery shopping. In the afternoon I had two meetings so I was gone from like 4.00 to 8.00pm.
Thursday I didn’t have anything on until my choir rehearsal which goes from 7:00-9:30pm. However I spent the day studying and I had to go print out heaps of stuff for my teaching and for the harps gathering on the week-end. After rehearsal I drove to my sister’s house to sleep there.
On Friday I had work from 9.20am-3.00pm and after that I gave a private harp lesson and after that I had a Rotary function to attend. Came home that night a bit past eight, feeling pretty tired. My host brother/Cutie Pie dyed his hair blue (lol).
On Saturday morning my cat woke me up at 5am which wasn’t such a problem as I had to drive host bro to this place as he’s gone off on a 2-week tour around the northern part of the state with the other exchange students. I came home, organised my calendar, and I spent the rest of the day teaching my private students (I had 3), and I felt so tired afterwards that I spent the rest of the day looking up videos on YouTube of spirituality, guardian angels, soul mates etc.
Today I woke up, did the grocery shopping as usual, then I had my private piano student come for his lesson, did the ironing, had a quick lunch, and off I went to the harps gathering. This went on until about 4pm and after it we had a committee meeting which went on until about 6.15pm and I have just gotten home from it!
And that is a brief overview of my week! Barely got time to study. I have a 1500 words essay due in 8 days, wish me luck as I haven’t started my research for it!
Anyway, before I finish this post I would like to write a few closing thoughts.
Before I started tutoring the Syrian boy, I tutored 4 Somalian kids (all this as a volunteer). I have not seen these children since November, 2016, and I had seen them on a weekly basis for 1.5yrs. I was very close to them, very fond of them. There is not a day I do not think about them. I miss them. Wherever they are I just want to send my positive thoughts and my love their way and if the Universe can let them know I am thinking of them very much and I am not forgetting them, that would be great. I really hope to see them again but I do not know where they live anymore and I have tried ringing their mobile numbers hundreds of time but to no success. May the Universe protect those children and bring them back into my path sometime in the future, and may the children stay true to themselves, and retain their youthful energy, which I loved.
May the parents of my young piano student decide for their boy to keep having piano lessons because even though progress is excruciatingly slow and lessons are not always productive, I have become so fond of the boy. He is so adorable and so funny, I would teach him for free. May he keep coming to my house for his lessons every week and may he be a little more obedient and cooperative than this week. May I be a good influence on him.
To my mum and my dad; my mum is so cute and her attitude makes me smile. She has been healthier and better than in previous times, I am relieved. Bravo to my dad for finding a new job so quickly after being laid-off unexpectedly. Thank you to my dad for getting things done around the house and for cooking dinner every night. Thank you to my parents for agreeing to host Cutie Pie and doing such a good job at it. When I look at my parents, I feel so proud of them and so thankful.
Cutie Pie – I am thankful for his refreshing personality, his quirks and ticks and thoughts, his openness. While at times I feel a bit drained/tired after hanging out with him because he speaks so much to me, having met him has been a huge privilege and blessing. I am so glad I have gotten to experience getting to know him, for it has made me a better person. Thank you Universe for bringing this person into my life and I hope I have done a good enough job looking after him as a mentor and now as a host sister. Please also protect him and may his unique personality never fade or shatter, because I love it.
XXX – my best friend – thank you Universe for bringing me this friend when I first needed it nearly two years ago. It has been such an exhilirating and rewarding experience witnessing his growth from a dark place to where he is now, knowing every day he is becoming more and more the person he wants to be. I am so lucky to be part of such a special process and I am glad that he trusts me on his development and opens up to me about his fears, anxieties, issues, but also his dreams and goals. It is so special to be someone’s close friend, and to have this type of friend also. May he continue this progress and may he love himself more and more through it. May the Universe remind him how much he means to me when he starts to get lonely and may he always see the light when he gets depressed.
And to all the people and to all the humans and to everything, may you find peace within yourself and send nice thoughts to everyone and wish everyone well and be happy for the successes of others, and may you love those who are like you and also those who are different, and may you find happiness in this life.
