September

So today is the last day of September, let me update you on the things going on. First today was a beautiful day. I think it may have been the only beautiful day this month! It has rained almost every day, I think today was the 2nd day it hasn't rained. Today was also warm, which was really nice. Before today I started wearing my hat, because it was getting chilly. They haven't started heating the building yet, so our apartment was a bit cold too. But it is warmer today. The leaves are starting to turn beautiful colors. The only thing missing this fall is football.

We have had a leaky faucet for a while now, finally we were able to (I got around to calling) get some guys to come fix it, they ended up replacing the whole faucet! Our landlord paid for it, so that is nice. Renting isn't so bad after all right?

I also got paid today! Today was my first real payday, so that is good. So far things have been going well with teaching. I'm sure the problems will come when it is time to grade papers and exams.

the week of the audits!

This was a very crazy week, it was the week of the audits! To make a long story short, I was in charge of doing the audits and there wasn't a lot of time to do them. They were due in August, so I did them all this week. That meant a trip to Tartu, Pärnu and Narva. The audits went well, we have a lot of wonderful clerks and wonderful branches in Estonia. I'm excited to visit them again in the future. I also forgot my camera on each trip, so this is a blog with no pictures.

One of our favorite shows to watch is the office, I think being a district clerk and doing audits makes the show a little more funny for me.

Tallinn!




So life is goinig great in Tallinn. I've started teaching and thing are going well. So far there hasen't been too much to blog about, so I will do a blog about cars that I have been wanting to do for a while! Estonia is a very poor country, just coming out of a really bad economic crisis but there are still nice cars everywhere. Most of the time when I see them I don't have my camera. I did see a Bently, Lamborghini, Escalade and a lot more.
