Wednesday 2 February 1994

In the afternoon I went to see Uncle Demmy, superficially about using computers in the classroom, which is a big feature at Karnyalimenya...but more to seek reassurance before I take on my first class. I'm a nervous Nelly at the moment.

I mean, here I am, 21 years of age. I've never been overseas. I'm a virgin. I've never held down a full-time job. I can't speak a foreign language...

And I'm scared as hell about having my own class of kids.

What if I stuff up? The Karnyalimenya parents seem to have high expectations. Susan has high expectations. My parents have high expectations. I've got high expectations.

Uncle Demmy told me I can handle it.
