In school, the week went relatively smoothly. It's still as struggle every day with my teacher, but I guess I'm learning just to do my own thing and just accept that he's not that great of a teacher. It's frustrating, but he's not going anywhere, so it is what it is. The students have really taken to City Year, though, and they want to know all about us. For example, here's a conversation that took place on Monday.
Anthony: Ms. Russo, you got a boyfriend?Me: Why? Do you have a girl friend?
Speaking of Mike, his sub got in a little "fender bender" on Thursday. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/01/navy-sub-goes-bump-in-the-night-and-loses-its-periscope/
Luckily, no one was hurt and the sub wasn't really damaged. When I first heard, I figured this kind of stuff happens and it wasn't even something to worry about it. I didn't even think it was that big of a deal until other people started texting me and asking me all about it. Luckily, it sounds like it was just a little "bump in the night" as the article refers to it. I haven't really gotten to talk to Mike even though he's in port. I hope I can talk to him soon!
Have a great week!
