A huge weight has been lifted, treat although there’s a little bit of residual stress as we await the outcome, but today we had our final ECOs – the one-on-one interview that serves more or less as a final exam. I don’t know why, but I managed to speak very comfortably for two hours in Spanish before I went for mine, but the minute I walked in I suddenly forgot several verb tenses and vocabulary words. It was not pretty! It’s frustrating to know your final evaluation comes from a 20 minute conversation with someone you rarely talk to, but that’s the way it goes. At least it’s over! The only lingering pressure left is to present my project in a couple of weeks and then we’ll be off to Colombia!!
