What Was I Thinking?!? Whilst in a foreign country, it is recommended to try new foods, learn the language, and alienate as many locals as possible.

Soon To Be National Holiday

CHINA | Friday, 25 September 2009 | Views [396]

HA! You thought I had given up on my blogging again, didn't you? DIDN'T YOU?!? You know what I'm talking about, coworkers.

Not much has been going on . I've been teaching and learning, eating, sleeping, listening to music. Teaching's a pain in the ass sometimes. My students are as responsive as a person in a coma. I'm pretty sure there's a heartbeat and sometimes they even blink, but for the most part they do as little as possible. Some classes are exceptions. I like those. We had fun in one of them today. I taught them how to play Heads Up, 7 Up. It was crazy cool.

Coming up is a national holiday. We are traveling to QingDao and TianShan and Confucius's hometown. It should be interesting. TianShan is actually a mountain. We shall be climbing it. If I die, I will all of my preciousness to my mei mei, Haley. Mei mei, for you non-pin-yin-readers, is pin yin for little sister. But the reason I mention it is because there should be pictures.

Also speaking of pictures, I posted some new ones with us just messing around Dalian with some of our Chinese friends. They're cute. I hope to get more soon. :) I also realized I didn't take pictures of where I am living so I'll try to get around to that... eventually.

Other than that, not much has been going down. I'm now obsessed with The Strokes, thanks to Tyler for giving me their music. I didn't realize how many of their songs I've heard before. Um... Yeah. Oh yeah. Last thing: Grilled chicken hearts are delicious. Grilled silk worm chrysalis (silkworm babies) is not.
