The past week or so has been all about our apartment which was a great find. It is about 50 years old and has super tall ceilings, wood floors in the living room, a bedroom for us and an extra one that we hope to rent out to a friend or cool housemate. I spent a little while yesterday making posts for craigslist: for us as private English teachers, for the room, for me as a dance teacher and finally for me as a performer.
Today I went back to the cafe to check me e-mail, hoping for responses, and was excited to see some in my inbox... unfortunately, they were both from men who were wanting to hire me to perform for them privately.
I didn't even reply.
I can't really say that I am surprised, especially for where I am and the types of people you find on the internet but I was still disappointed. Hopefully I'll make some real human connections soon and perform!
It also started snowing here and just a few minutes outside get's you wishing for the comfort of home, heater and food!
We both got some teaching hours and will start over the next few days so the money will start coming in again instead of only going out (new apartment fees, kitchenwares, food, misc. spendings). Luckily, the neighborhood we moved to is chalk-full of English language schools and it is a very desired thing here, especially from native Americans- that's us! Some of our friends were talking about starting a California-specific language class... how fun would that be! Learn how to talk like you're a surfer from Santa Cruz... rad.
That's all for now, my toes are cold and I'm going to head back to the apartment.
