Well one month and three days… I cried.  I don’t know if it was the stress of working 40 hours a week not including travel or prep time, having a boss who changes his mind and expectations daily, learning a new language (and a f-ing hard one at that), interacting with people from a different culture and not knowing the expectations, not being able to read signs, having to basically set up a whole organizational system for the school (no one else will), smelling the burning trash, being on my period, being a workaholic and taking on too much, traveling on all of my days off, money (yes that is always a stress isn’t it), or just everything combined.  I needed to cry and I guess today was the last straw.  Luckily I can say things are looking better and we seem to have some direction, and that direction may even be forward! 
So more to come on this lovely adventure, but at least I have some released.  I love you all.  Thank you for the support it really makes a difference.
