Quid pro quo

И свет, угасая, отрезал безумного мальчика от его тени...
This is how Autumn grants wishes... and I am glad even if all magic comes with a price.

1. Yesterday I was ponderind how wonderful it could be if today they postponed our lesson at the language school. The reason was simple - I'm not sure that I'll be able to attend my dance class on Sunday and I'd hate missing a whole week. Today in the morning I've got a message that was the following: 'Unfortunately, your class is postponed. As for your Monday class - we will let you know later.' My price - is my salary, which at that very moment got a bit smaller (can't believe that's even possible...). But that meant I could have a dance class today. Learning instead teaching. And besides I don't have to worry about Sunday.

2. Another subject for a pity could take place on Thursday. Because the time of my job interview coincided with the time of a lecture on Southern Gothic Literature as a genre and its representatives. it was supposed to take place at the British Book Centre. Though it was my fault that I completely forgot about this lecture when I appointed time for my interview. Anyway, it seemed I had to say goodbye to Anne Rice, Tennessee Williams, Stephen King, and others writers. But the second news that came today proclaimed that the lecture had been cancelled. So I need neither rearrange the time of the interview ( what's obviously unprofessional) nor regret about my unusual absent-mindedness.

That eagerness which I had got to make things go this way is as surprising as obvious the price I paid for them going this way.

Conditionals and places

И свет, угасая, отрезал безумного мальчика от его тени...
422. Soon I can give lectures on Conditionals at any times of the day and of the night. Probably the Universe makes me learn them this way - by presenring demo-lessons to language schools (no idea why I always come across this very topic). I do like the feeling when I manage to present my knowledge of English in English in a proper way. And this is the very thing I like speaking of teaching. That with every other explanation your presentation becomes better. So do your language skills. Frankly speaking, this is the reason that induced me to prepare a demo-lesson for an interview via Scype yesterday. Being a teacher is not my dream job (I am not that big fan of people) but this is quite likely to be a single job that gives me an opportunity to stay a student, a learner. To stay always alert of the language usage. As I always worry that I forget things (rules, words, information of any kind) this seems to be a chance to worry a bit less than usual.

9. I have noticed that lately my life sometimes tend to focus around some places, I mean places on the map. Although there is no obvious connection between them. For example a number of ehibitions I've recently attended took place not far from Saint Isaac's Square: ProToArt festival, the Maps exhibition at the headquarters of the Russian geographical society or The State Museum of the History of Religion. Another example - the area around the subway station of Chernyshevskaya. The language school where I was working in July, the place where there was an interview and an introduction to the position of a call-centre operator (not sure whether I will study some data I should know almost by heart or not). Then there also the library is sutuated where I listened to a lection on duelling and where I'm going to have a job interview (yep, I'm looking for a job without any system or any logic). I like the way all these events enriched and are enriching these places for me. Like more details appeared there which related to me. The same is true for other places as well but the fact that I've found myself there recently so often somehow underlines the feeling of the place.

И свет, угасая, отрезал безумного мальчика от его тени...
6. Have returned to reading 'How to teach English'. It's interesting to see that many ideas that the book describes were given us when I studied at our University in Rostov. Though probably in some different way, probably some foci differed but all the same. Now I'm going through chapter 5 and I can't say that I'm coming across anything totally new. That means that I have an idea more or less what teaching is (probably I don't know some concepts, terms and methods but I use them without thinking). That's somehow connected with my teachers from different language schools I attended. Because since the very beggining of my urge to languages I've paid attention how they gave information. But I am interested in finishing this book to be aware of terms and concepts, to understand the essence of the methods. To speak the language teachers of the English language use. For example "ESA lesson sequence". That divides the lesson into an Engage part, a Study part and an Activate part. That's quite a natural divisioin... but when you know that as an approach that provides your teaching with some system and structure. I'll try to keep on reading, come what may.

38. Finally I somehow enjoyed freestyle waltzing coz we were given some patterns and opportunity to practice them. So freestyle is stopping to be so terryfing ....like 'what I am suppose to do, how I suppose to react... let me go'. Sometimes I was able to predict my partner's actions and answer to them just in time. That appeared to be quite possible. But you have to be very attentive and careful. A funny thing: How does a lady understand that it's time to do an inside turn? When a gentleman raises his left hand up. Like a Pavlov's dog. Can't get rig of this very image.

1. From what I've got from the plot of 'American Psyho' I have to admit that a film is not worse than a book. The book contains too many details that copy each other, moreover, it slurs the character's development. To my liking it lacks contemplating. It lacks grounds. Though their absence is likely to mean something as well. As for the film. This time the lack of screen time did good. They have to reach the scenes to house as much infomation given in the book as possible. So it results in a number bright pieces forged together. That made dynamics. Especially I appreciated how Patrick's views on some music bands were presented. In the film they are adressed to other characters not to a reader/viewer. That shows the difference between Patrick and other people, what they focus on.
