This week has just been a lot of getting to know everyone at my office and apartment. I´ve gotten more comfortable with making some casual small talk in the work place even though it can be hard to fully express my thoughts sometimes with a more limited vocabulary. However, I think that listening to people on the metro, at work, or in my apartment talking in Spanish has improved my speaking, and vice versa (hopefully).
At work, I've designed posters for international business courses that our organization offers to young adults. I've also been working on making banner advertisements that ask people to donate to 1 Kilo de Ayuda. They're taking much longer than expected because every computer in the office has decided to freeze every time I touch the mouse! Despite the frustration with technology, I've enjoyed getting to work with different design programs. Lucia even showed me how to do some simple things on WordPress to make changes to our website.
|Lucia didn't want to be|
|Cards that are sent to different supermarkets in|
Madrid that shoppers can pick up and donate to the NGO
Real Madrid v. Atletico Madrid
|The Real Madrid team is in there… somewhere|
|Plaza de Cibeles!|
After conducting several polls of people´s favorite cities in Spain, I´ve narrowed down my list of places I´d like to visit this summer:
- San Sebastian
& Lisbon, Portugal!
So look out for future posts from these trips(if I´m able to organize everything)!
