Snow

I'm trying to get through this week as quickly as possible. We've had some... ...OK snowfall in the mountains in the last week and looks like there might be more on the way. A group of us have rented a ridiculously large house 30 mins from the mountain - the same one we rent around this time every year. I spent an obscene amount of money on a new snowboard and bindings (although it was on sale, so not as much as I could have spent) and I'm looking forward to breaking it in.

Climbing

I haven't been and I'm missing it. I've been incredibly lazy the past few weeks. No physical activity except the short two-block walk to work from my tram stop. I think I'm rationalising it to myself by saying 'well I'm going to be very active in the snow'. Planning to get back into it when I return.

Spanish

I've been enjoying the classes a lot. There has been a lot of absenteeism. Last week I was the only student there and I felt like I got a lot out of the class. This week though, a student who hasn't been there for a few weeks was back - and was struggling. It's selfish, but I was pretty annoyed. Most of the class was taken up with everything I'd already gone through last week. There are two classes left now. I'm planning on continuing to one of the next levels. Looking at the descriptions of the classes though, we seem to have gone over a lot of the material already. I'm going to ask my teacher (hopefully in Spanish...) whether he thinks I'm ready for level 2 yet... (¿Crees que debería intentar los clases nivel dos?). I have no idea if that's right - or if I'll be way too far out of my comfort zone. Anyone here able to tell me if I'm on the right track with that sentence?
