Episode 43 • Optimism


Be a negative Nelly

Look on the bright side

Every cloud has a silver lining

See the glass half full

It's not the end of the world


So, this is not a regular episode and this is not a story, well, actually it is a story, it’s my story but, don’t worry, we’ll still learn 5 new expressions. So, if you’ve listened to some of the past episodes you may know I quit my job last December. Teaching had become too much for me and I decided to focus 100% of my time on my projects, this podcast being the main one. Now, this meant not making any money whatsoever for months. This podcast has brought me so much joy because not only does it allow me to be creative but it also allows me to help hundreds of you improve your English. However, a couple of weeks ago I was offered a job and I had to accept it. I was so happy at first because I thought it wasn’t going to affect my personal projects. However, after nearly two weeks, I’ve realized I can’t keep doing everything the way I was, so I’m afraid from now on I’ll only be uploading one episode a week. Now, I don’t want to be a negative Nelly so let’s look on the bright side, okay? Because, at the end of the day, every cloud has a silver lining. So let’s try to see the glass half full, shall we? I now have a job, which means I’ll finally be able to pay for my share of the rent and food and stuff like that. So, yay for me! And.. you know, I’ll still be posting new episodes weekly, so… I guess I’m just trying to say it’s not the end of the world. Also, let me just take this opportunity thank you, really. Three months ago, I would’ve never imagined someone other than my mom would be listening to this podcast, so yeah, just thank you so much.
