On Tuesday morning I woke up grumpy because I had stayed up late studying and not slept much, because it was hot, because my backpack was heavy, etc, etc. But then I led a nutrition tour in Spanish and my day was turned around completely. I still am not sure exactly why, but speaking Spanish brings me an incredible amount of joy. I definitely need a career where I can use it regularly.
My tour Wednesday was in English but was still very fun, as always. These are so rewarding because I know I'm giving adults the tools they need to make well-informed eating decisions for themselves and their kids or grandkids. And that is so very exciting and fulfilling for me! I feel lucky that my parents taught me basic nutrition and raised me on relatively healthy food, and I love being able to share that knowledge with others.
Thursday was pretty slow because I haven't checked in with my SFUSA supervisor in a while and am losing my forward inertia on the magazine project. I'm should hear from her on Monday, though.
