So this morning I logged on, got everything set up about 10 minutes early and waited for him to call. By 10:10 I realized he must have meant 11am Cairns time. Very frustrating as today was to be my only day off this week, and now I was wasting it, sitting around waiting! Of course by 10:50am the internet at the hostel was connecting and disconnecting like it was some sort of game. I had no way of contacting him to explain the issues so I texted Shoko to ask her to call Japan and explain the situation. After half an hour of trying to connect I finally got a phone call from Shoko. She said she hadn’t been able to get a hold of Vaughn, but she had left a message for him explaining the situation and giving him my phone number so he could just call me and try to set up a new time. So now I’m waiting for a phone call from him and there’s a possibility I’ll have to go into the school to use their system later this afternoon. I shouldn’t complain, it’s all in the hopes of getting a paid job (and the training is supposed to be paid as well), but I just hate waiting around and not being able to make any plans. So yeah, the kids are great and I have lots of fun on our outings. The company seems to be rather disorganized and lacking in communication, which seems ironic that they’re so terrible at communicating when that’s the whole point of the company: teaching students to communicate in English!! Ok, I’ll stop now.
In other news, today is my wonderful sister’s birthday and I’m so thankful she’s my sister. I got a random box of Peanut Butter in the mail today from First Abroad so that was cool. I had fun playing volleyball Monday night and Tuesday night. Emma, Pukari, and I are going out for Korean food tomorrow night – my first time eating Korean food. And on Friday I get to have a BBQ with the Nova students. Think on the positives, that’s what I gotta do….
