I am not sure who is getting stronger me as I try to hit the rock again and again or the rock at I feel it is starting to hit me with greater force with each attempt I make.
I don't know of a more dedicated educator in the sacrifice of his or her time than Ustez Eid. Thank you for all the work you give to the team.
I finally got a tutor, now I just need to take advantage of the opportunity. I have met with him and I know this is really going to help. I am excited to focus my work and be able to have a native english speaker to supliment the great instructors that I already have.

When I say the team mom I mean it as a compliment, as she was so helpful at the picnic, as he always is in and out of class, doing anything she can to help any student, not much different than any of the teachers but just cause she doesn't have a mustache she can be the mom!
Boy do I need to work on my vocab, I did a little on monday, now I need to stay up till ten or so tonight and get this down, it should be a horrible quiz tomorrow if I don't, wish me luck, and if you have any tips on how to improve my vocab retention let me know, please!
I have been working on finishing the drawings of my instructors for too long now, I think the basics are done now just the finishing touches and getting them into the computer. I always feel better about the pencil sketch than I do about the scanned image on the computer. I haven't been able to bridge the gap and I keep forgetting to put some arabic comment on the caricature, as was advised by another instructor.
This image here is a loose adaptation of one of our great facilitators here at school. He is always encouraging perfection when we speak and uses his own connectors to help us learn more vocab. I thank him along with all of our teachers for the support they provide as they facilitate our education.
