This weekend is the Campamento de Jóvenes. Ariel is the director and he had a hard time finding people to help him with the camp this year so, I offered to do half of the teaching so that he wouldn't have to carry all of that load alone. I have avoided that type of teaching and working at camp for several years, so it's felt strange in many ways.
I didn't really realize how exhausting it is to teaching in this context. There are almost 40 campers and they aren't my students. I taught last night and felt completely exhausted when it was over. The other side of that exhaustion is that I as teaching from the Bible and that always makes me feel very introspective. It's a strange feeling.
It's been strange because I've realized that I don't know how to get to know some of the campers. I feel very disconnected and don't know how to connect. I cannot think of what to talk about them, I cannot remember how to do it... how to just find something to talk about with people that I have very little in common with. It's been hard for me! I feel more timid because I'm afraid of really having nothing to talk about.
This week 750words had a problem with its server and it didn't save my words. I have to say that was super disappointed when it didn't save my words even though I had forced myself to write them. It made me feel very discouraged.
