I have trouble writing deeply meaningful posts about what World Teach Costa Rica 2010 has meant to me. I want to write something which gives people at least a little glimpse into what it has been like to live and teach here, but I have one flaw (at least) which keeps getting in the way. I really like using cliches when I write.
This is not a new flaw for me. I remember basing an entire paper for religion class freshman year about cliches. My teacher understood my point and I got a decent grade, but it makes me cringe thinking about it. Every time I sit down to write about my time here I end up wanting to use one cliche after another. Part of it is laziness, its easier to convey a feeling using a well known phrase than have to think up my own way of saying it.
Well, I'll have a post up after this which hopefully does not fall into this trap, but I'll let my words speak for themselves after this meta post.
