What a week it's been. To say I struggled through my classes this week is an understatement. In order not to come across as a total weirdo, I decided to explain my lack of focus to my teachers by telling about my recent skin eczema/ medicine/ lack of sleep.
One of them was most interested in my skin problem.
-so is your skin OK now? She kept asking.
-Yes, I said. But I still have difficulties sleeping.
-Well as long as your skin is OK!
From another one I got no sympathy:
-You don't look tired, she said suspiciously.
-Well I am.
-I can't tell.
-Make-up can do wonderful things.
-Yeah. You really don't look tired.
The fourth one was super understanding:
-Ah that's terrible! Don't worry about it. This chapter is quite easy, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t prepared well. We will take things slow.
30 minutes later however:
-Jonna, we have to study a bit faster. And how can you get this question wrong? It is so simple!
-Yeah, sorry, I just don't get it for some reason. My brain is quite slow today.
-Well then you have to go home and study more.
-You're not going to explain it to me?
Anyways, today I’m off to Wuxi to do some translation work and when I get home tonight I am going to embrace the weekend! We were supposed to go to Hangzhou and run the half marathon this Sunday but because of how little sleep I’ve been getting lately I decided to cancel. There will be more races in the future.
