To follow up on the post about my soul-crushing tutor, I have the following: I had never run into the woman before my session. of course, I walked out of a session yesterday morning, and snack into her. AWKWARD! She is apparently now teaching in the same building where I take my classes, in the same room I am in, no less. I've now run into her three times.
But on a brighter note, I went to a lecture by a Latin American attorney yesterday, in Spanish, about Latin American justice systems and Latin American politics, and understood everything. In fact, I even asked a few questions. Take that, evil soul crusher!
