In the last two weeks I have been working fast and furiously at NMAA. This is my primary assignment currently. NMAA is the National Military Academy of Afghanistan, which is the Afghan version of West Point. I have been working on standing up a new degree in English, supporting the expansion of English instruction as the program scales up to include 2200 students, creating an English library, addressing issues of learning management and automation, helping people plan and prepare for female students and faculty increasing rapidly in the next two years, testing up the senior English class, developing and executing teacher training/ planning instructor development programs, and still working on the new book: Ground Zero. I work all day long, literally, and there is just never enough time in the day.
Last night was the first time in country that I've been able to go to the gym. It was wonderful. It's 9:34 pm and I am taking my first break of the day since I began working at 6:30 this morning.
