QW 031712 “Tardy and Easy”

It’s become my Saturday morning practice to have a Skype lesson with Eric. One of the reasons for this is that Eric is almost always available on Saturday mornings when not many tutors offer their time slots for learners to book a lesson. Another reason is that it’s nice to kick off my long-awaited weekend with my always-awaited English lesson. More importantly, talking with Eric on Saturday mornings feels good and relaxing. It’s just like talking with my intimate friend right after getting out of the bed. The intimacy that I feel toward to my Skype English lesson tutor went beyond the limit: Tardiness. This week has been a bit hard for me, taking the TOEIC SW tests, cramming for the mid-term exam of a grad school course, attending a graduation ceremony as a guest, having a business meeting and business dinner, and starting a university intensive TOEFL course. The bad habit that I cannot possibly get rid of is that the busier I become, the more time I need for winding down. That will lead to sacrificing my sleep without fail: What a vicious circle!

It was a cold, rainy, quiet morning. It was also too good for sleeping in. I booked a lesson at 11 A.M. a few days ago, but I completely forgot about that. I crawled out of my bed and space out for a while gazing at the monitor of my laptop computer. Then it suddenly came to me; a Skype lesson booked at 11o’clock! The e-mail notification sent to me indicated that Eric already contacted me and knew I didn’t log in there. Darn! I called back to him and made apologies. We changed our regular lesson menu and continued having a small talk for the rest of the lesson time. It turned out I enjoyed having a casual and intimate conversation with Eric. It wasn’t like a lesson or tutoring at all. It was me who overslept and was not all awake yet and him who was suffering from a slight headache from daily hard work. We talked about whatever came up spontaneously. That was an unexpected yet relaxing moment on one Saturday morning.
