Twin Peaks

CHINA | Tuesday, 11 Mar 2008 | Views [1152]

Ok. So when I was young, I used to watch this show at night that I didn't really understand. Mostly, I liked the shots of this cafe with neon lights. It kind of creeped me out, but I remember feeling like an adult when I watched it. I've tried ... Read more >

Not my favorite number.  But significant right now.   I've been in China seven months now.  I've collected about 70 DVDs.  I've read about 7,000 books (in English).  And my Chinese cell number has three 7's in it. Time is flying.  And, yes, I'm still ... Read more >

DVDs, coffee, passports and nail clippings

CHINA | Tuesday, 15 Jan 2008 | Views [498]

Life in China is evolving into something like Christmas break. I spend all my time watching movies (I've bought 70 DVDs; I counted), drinking coffee, worrying about when I will get my passport back and cleaning the Beijing funk from beneath my nails.... Read more >

Another day in China

CHINA | Monday, 5 Nov 2007 | Views [736]

Today was typical.  It was life in China as I live it.  There is nothing particularly interesting or amazing to tell.  It wasn't a blah day.  But it wasn't an incredible day either.  I woke up around noon at Case's.  He and I chatted for a bit.  Then, ... Read more >

Too tired to boil

CHINA | Monday, 22 Oct 2007 | Views [597]

I worked all day, but it was easy.  My students are giving their presentations, and they're really getting into it.  So I basically sat in the back of class and listened all day.  No biggie.   I met Chris after work because he's found me a tutor.  I'm ... Read more >

One fine day

CHINA | Sunday, 14 Oct 2007 | Views [1274]

And so it goes. I decided to have a me day. One that involved sleeping exceptionally late, watching lots of TV and DVDs, and eating whatever I wanted. So I did. And it was fabulous. I didn't venture out of my apartment (or my pajamas) until ... Read more >
