Today I did my first level check, and it was fun! The student seemed really nervous, but I would probably also be nervous if I suddenly had to speak a second language to a native speaker for 20 minutes.
After work I went to the internet cafe “just for an hour”. I caught up on a lot of old email, and then found a streaming video of pro wrestlers Mick Foley and John Bradshaw Layfield debating about the upcoming US election. No chairs or elbow drops were used. It was refreshing to see two wrestlers sounding intelligent and well informed, which is much different than the characters they play in the ring. The WWE gets a lot of grief from people, but they do a lot to encourage people to vote.
I ended up leaving after spending four hours in the internet cafe. Stupid entertaining internet.
