Ugh it’s so hard to wake up in the mornings here. You know when it’s cold out and you’re warm and snug in bed? Yeah… it’s awful. I didn’t do anything at work today. From 9-3:45 I sat around and entertained myself with Netflix. Speaking of which Jessica Jones is pretty good! It starts off a bit slow but it RAMPS up after the 3rd episode. It’s a modern noir and it’s dark and gritty. So yeah time well spent.
Oh there was this crazy fight between a mother and an Ayi, essentially a janitor. This woman was GOING OFF!!! I was trying to pick up on what she was saying, but her voice was like nails on a chalk board. Imagine a bitchy Chihuahua barking it’s head off. Turns out the lady went off because when she was cleaning she dragged a desk around and it made a “loud” noise. That’s it. She was going off for nearly 15 min because of it.
Which lead me to this realization that Syd and I are literally living amongst an entire generation of only children. Like think of some of the most spoiled little shits you can think of and that’s what we’re living with. Just entitled bitches. Also another thing is that I now see why the Chinese push so hard for their kids to succeed within school. Because in China you take this test called the GaoKao and it essentially dictates where you’ll be in life. Good scores = good college. When I look around the lines between rich and poor and very clearly drawn here. For those that don’t do well they can look at a life time of blue collared work. Now I’m not talking down about that kind of stuff, but blue collared work out here is freaking brutal. Those that are stuck in those fields have been ridden hard and put away wet.
So sleepy…didn’t sleep well but couldn’t lay down any longer. Got up and called my dad to wish him a happy birthday now that it’s actually his birthday in America. We talked for awhile and it was nice to talk to my dad. After I got ready and cleaned up a little around the house. It’s so cold that I can see my breathe in the house. I ate warm ramen for breakfast since it made me all toasty on the inside. The sun is such a tease it will be out and bright and sunshiny but so cold!! Haha. Also today a student said, “I hope you could forgive my terrible answer. You bolster me to keep practise English, your voice is like a singing bird. See you again.” All the spelling mistakes were copied from their comment about me. My voice is like a singing bird, I have always wanted people to think of my voice like that. 🙂 haha. I asked my boss if I can work from home on Christmas and he said yes! Sweet!!!! So this Tuesday he is going to walk me through how to do it and what I have to log in to.
Chris, my team leader, is so cool and pretty much let’s you get away with anything. As long as you let him know what you are doing he doesn’t care. I was wearing my 2015 coachella shirt today and we started talking music and he almost went 2012 but couldn’t at the last moment. Chris is a good boss.
A guy named Vagor wanted to talk about music and he loves Eminem and Wu Tang Clan. It was a great lesson. A really fun student.
Well Steve gave me his flowers that the office gave him for his birthday. He said I deserve them and would appreciate them more. They are carnations. I do not like carnations. Also it’s weird he is giving me flowers.
My boots are killing me the inside is broken but I need them to last through the winter then I will throw them away. I brought and apple for my dinner break at work and it was rotten on the inside. I’m so sad and hungry right now. Wally and I are going to have a Sundate tonight! Eee so excite! Tomorrow is Friday and then it’s the weekend!
I talk to alot of housewives and all they say is I am learning English because I am bored and do not have to have a job. It is so crazy how different people’s lives are. I was late getting out of work and was racing against the clock to make it to the metro and I just barely caught both my trains. Wally had dinner ready when I came home and then we relaxed and hung out. It is nice to hang out for a little.
