Day 29: Happy Birthday Riley!
My day was slightly better than yesterday. I feel slightly better, mostly I am just less disoriented/ dizzy. I am coughing a lot though and my throat BURNS. I had my internship meeting this morning with Alessandro and we talked about our experiences so far at the school. Then I had a break where I talked to Laura (Chiara wasn't here today), and Lindsay and Cella at the front desk for a while. I then went to the library and did some reading for a big paper I have due in a few weeks.
Today was my first day working in a history class. I met a new teacher, Lucia, who speaks very little English. I was with two other students, Katie and Jess. We answered the students questions and told them a little about our family background. They are studying immigration, so if I go next week, I will teach them about that.
I then went home and had lunch. Around 3 I took a nap, as I felt so drained from the day. I woke up again around 7 and then had dinner at 8. I had cheesy rice, cooked spinach and some sort of cheese puff pastry like bread. For dessert I had the same pastry from a few nights ago, which is hard like a shortbread cookie, but rolled like a crescent roll. It was filled with chocolate instead of cream tonight, which I preferred.
