Sevilla English

I have recently changed hats on my Facebook and Twitter accounts and am now known there as Sevilla English. This is to build a brand for the work I am doing here in Seville, teaching English and Spanish to English translation, leaving Noggin (an online name which I have been using for about 8 years, and to which I have something of an emotional attachment), for some leisure and personal hobby uses.  This marks a new development in my online life into the sphere of social media, which seems to be where the action is right now.  We will see how it works out.

Update

Okay, it’s update time.

We’ve been to see a number of flats now, but we still haven’t found what we’re looking for. A couple haven’t been too bad, a couple have been really awful. The most interesting, though quite unsuitable, was a little three story house overlooking the courtyard of the El Salvador church, with the belltower right next to the azotea (rooftop terrace). Have to start thinking seriously about sorting and packing (and discarding) stuff to be ready. It’s funny how throwing stuff out sometimes feels like a new start, and sometimes feels really sad.

Lost one student at the start of the new year, but gained another one. I need about four or five more, depending on how many classes they do.
