British International School

I went to the BIS to see if I could volunteer there. And they will let me. So twice a week I will work with ESL students. I'm really looking forward to it. They were excited that I was a native English speaker. So I am assuming the other aides or volunteers are Turkish.

Last Friday I went to workout at the university facilities. They really really nice, but it costs 5 YTL, about $4. On the weekends it is 10 YTL. I think I am just spoiled that at Ball State it was free. I really hate paying, but I will go again tomorrow. It felt really good to get some exercise besides walking up five hills a day.

We got a shower rod and curtain and had a man install them...the bathroom issues have quickly been more water everywhere. It's a beautiful thing.

I have come to the conclusion that I will most likely have to live in the US for at least two years to get my Masters and have two years experience under my belt. Unless I get right into DoDDs, any good international school will want/expect two years at least. Maybe Katie can have a baby while I am home and I won't have to fly back and forth a million times. =)

Turkey looks like an interesting place to visit. I look forward to hearing your stories when you return.
Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Mwahahaha! You have to stay in the U.S. for at least two years! I will be sure to get my fill of Miss Wiese while you're home! Love you. Miss you.
