Work Work Work

Vacation is not yet over, but sadly I'm already working away. There's a ton of stuff I want to have done before I go back to school (unit plans, reading passages, worksheets for review, plan for first week, new investment, management, and homework plans.....) and I've parked myself in a hostel in Kunming and am just working away on it all. It's boring, but the more I get done, the better the coming semester will be.

Vacation was really relaxing, and I got to see a lot of cool stuff, but not really that interesting. Most of my time was spent on a very touristy route, so here's my vacation in 30 seconds:
1. got an epic sunburn.
2. western food always available--weird.
3. Vietnam=scooters, Thailand=cars
4. I love vietnamese coffee, avacado shakes, vietnamese sandwiches, and pad thai
5. gained weight
6. rented a scooter while on an island (that had no cars)=awesome
7. rode on way too many buses

I'm looking forward to getting back to teaching. Vacation was nice, but I definitely missed having some purpose in my day to day life other than trying to enjoy myself.


  1. Congrats again on your first semester. I can tell it is great to know what you want to do for the Spring Semester.

  2. What makes Vietnamese coffee different? What is in an avocado shake? what makes a Vietnamese sandwich? Sounds like great fun, and just long enough to have time to get ready for the next semester and be ready to go back.

  3. Vietnamese coffee rocks. Glad you are back on line! MK

  4. I hear you are back in Songgui and classes restarted on Sunday night!
