Happy Halloween! (and other news)
This year we ate pizza, drank some beer, and watched "Halloween" which I had never seen. It's a pretty ridiculous movie. And I was happy just doing that, and going home, and going to bed.
And Other News:
1. One of my colleagues is having an operation & I am taking over two of her classes for the next month. So now I'm teaching ten classes a week, which is quite a bit. Normally I wouldn't mind, but it means missing yet another Chinese class and I just paid the painful 2,500 kuai fee, which now feels like a waste of money.
2. It took me all of one month to find myself with a crush on one of my students. I won't go into detail, since I'm oh-so-professional, but let's just say that he's got hipster glasses and a smoldering gaze. Unfortunately, I will teach these students all year, so I can't even fantasize about a situation in which he is no longer my student and I'm freed of these ethical constraints.
3. I'll be heading to Beijing for the weekend of November 13th, for a PiA get-together, which should be a lot of fun. I'm excited to see Beijing again, and hang out with the other PiA-ers.
