First Day of School.

I’m having a break in my alphabet project but instead I will post about my school.

As we arrived on Sunday evening it was dark already. I met a familiar face in Tartu and we walked together to the dorm. Today we got to use the last rays of sunshine walk a bit in the town to go to the grocery store. What we realized was that we have no time to scout this beautiful small town.

Today we had only theoretical lessons. So far I have heard about material studies, a bit about Estonian national culture (mostly 18-20 century), communications and work safety. The day was very long starting from 8 am and almost until 20 pm and this is how it’s going to be every day this week except for Friday, then we get off around 3 pm. We got off a bit earlier though. 😉 Luckily everything has been rather interesting so it went faster than I thought and wasn’t as hard as I had imagined.

I’m pretty sure tomorrow will be even more fun! We will sew, do some embroidery and some composition studies. I’m a bit afraid of the sewing part as I haven’t really done that since secondary school. Also I saw those big industrial sewing machines – they look scary!

TĂ€hestikuprojekti tuleb vĂ€ike paus nĂŒĂŒd. RÀÀgin vahepeal natuke oma koolist. 

PĂŒhapĂ€eval tulin bussiga Tartu, nĂ€gin seal juba vestluselt tuttavat nĂ€gu. SĂ”itsime ĂŒhe bussiga RĂ€pinasse ja leidsime pimedas koos tee ĂŒhikani. TĂ€na Ă”htul Ă”nnestus siiski ka veidi viimaseid pĂ€ikesekiiri nautida, kui veidi linnas jalutasime, et poes kĂ€ia. 

TĂ€na olid meil ainult teoreetilised tunnid, Ă”ppisime Eesti rahvakultuuri (peamiselt 18.-20. sajand), suhtlemise aluseid, materjali Ă”petust ja töökeskkonna ohutust. PĂ€ev oli vĂ€ga pikk alates kella 8st hommikul kuni pea kella 8ni Ă”htul. PĂ”himĂ”tteliselt on see siin meil nii nĂŒĂŒd iga pĂ€ev, ainult reede lĂ”ppeb veidi enne kella 3 pĂ€eval. Seekord Ă”nneks saime veidi varem Ă”htule, kĂŒll. Õnneks lĂ€ks kĂ”ik ĂŒldse oodatust palju kiiremini, polnud ĂŒldse nii raske kui esialgu ette kujutasin.

Olen ĂŒsna kindel, et homme tuleb veel pĂ”nevam. Me hakkame Ă”mblema, tikkima ja kompositsiooni Ă”ppima. Ma veidike kardan seda Ă”mblemise osa, kuna ma pole seda tĂ”siselt keskkoolist saati teinud. Ja ma nĂ€gin juba neid suuri tööstuslikke masinaid seal – hirmus!
