Some more observations today… I’m getting a bit fed up with it. I have my credential I know what must be done and how to implement it, but whatever gotta put in the grunt work. I got to observe the older students today and I must say I’m most excited to teach them only because I’m going to actually teach. The small star coarse is full of 3-6 year olds. They’re barely speaking their own language well let alone a new one.
On a side note I walked the streets of Shanghai in my Chewbacca onsie since it serves as my Halloween costume for the school. Surprisingly enough I didn’t receive any looks. It would appear that Shanghai welcomes the weird. Although the kids at the school don’t seem to know what Star Wars is. They think I’m just some fuzzy bear with a sash. Ignorant little pricks…
I managed to chat with some of my coworkers today and they’re pleasant enough. The guys at the center on an individual level are chill but put them in a group and it suddenly becomes a dick measuring competition on how many chick’s they bang/want to bang and how many deviant acts they’ve preformed. Now I’m not one to shy away from inappropriate speech, as you guys have experienced in real life or this blog, but there’s a time and place for that kind of stuff. It appears that a culture for that type of behavior has been established at this institution. Whatever I don’t have the time, energy or even care enough to institute any type of change.
Wally and I had some breakfast and got ready for work. I was so tired because we went to bed way to late but its Friday so who cares. Wally and I walked to the metro together and headed to work. I had a pretty boring day. A few people cancelled and I had a pretty lame day. Again I missed the metro so Wally and I walked home and it was a pretty nice walk. We came home and had some ramen for dinner. I painted my toes and we watched a little TV. Showered and headed to bed. Tomorrow is Halloween, it is so weird to not be at home for a holiday. Hopefully we find a bar and I can just get white girl wasted and pretend I have a costume. LOL. Night everyone.
