Vote Sugar for Participation!

26 Dec
Me: Your assignment is NOT a presentation — you are supposed to lead a class discussion.
Β 
Student: Β I don’t understand.
Β 
Me: You ask the class questions and get them to participate and talk. 😐
Β 
Student: Β Our grade means the class has to TALK to us? But teacher, this is not the China way. Maybe we do not like to talk in class. Maybe we will all have a very bad grade.
Β 
Me (in my mind): Welcome to the life of the laowai laoshi (foreign teacher) and the struggle for participation!
Β 
Me (in reality): You can do this. Maybe call on people one by one. Or ask your friends to help you. Or offer the first person to talk candy.
Β 
Student: . . . . . . .Β πŸ˜‘
Β 
WeChat 5 minutes later . . . . “You may use every way to force your classmates to work for you. Teacher Olivia recommends sugar.”
Β 
Me: Bwahahahahahahahaha . . . Behold, the power of sugar! πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ‘πŸ¨πŸ¬πŸ­πŸ«πŸ°πŸŽ‚πŸͺ🍩

​Awwwww  #Santa picked me up yesterday for a ride on his way to deliver #toys!  β€οΈπŸ’– Wasn’t he sweet!  Although his reindeer have upgraded to being disguised a lot like a #Toyota. πŸ˜† Thanks to #Didi for the opportunity to be sleigh escorted to my #Christmas #party!

#Didi Adventures!

1 Oct

Gave the poor Didi driver (Uber’s alternative) a heart attack today. Guy and his wife/girlfriend picked me up. Took us forever to coordinate the pick-up spot. I could here him ranting about “xxxxx Didi xxxx waijiao xxxx Didi.” Looked at my phone and realized it was only their 2nd time being Didi drivers. 0_0 And they got the crazy foreigner LOLOLOL Poor dude. My mind was running the conversation through to something like “this is just my luck! Why, we just did it, and we got the foreigner! Why me!?!” I didn’t know how to tell him it’s his luck because it’s my luck. I was only taking Didi because I left my jacket at the store and this was my second trip of the day πŸ˜› -_-

He got so turned around he drove past my street, figured out that construction has blocked off all streets for the next 2 miles, had to turn around and go back. Couldn’t find the road. . . . . Girlfriend is hysterically laughing at him while trying to explain she knew only a “little English. English – – – think too difficult.” Had me laughing too. I think he wanted to kill us both by the time the trip was over. Sweet heart that he was, he did try to carry my waters home for me though.

Gave them good stars πŸ™‚ ❀

Inside Voice, Outside Voice, #Teaching Voice

Roger (the totally awesome IT guy) came to class today to install a new microphone. He asked if I needed one. I said “No, I’m pretty loud without it.” Girl in the back of a room of roughly 96 students — “Oh yes, we can hear very good.” Me: πŸ€£πŸ˜‚. . . Roger: Oh. I think you do not need this. It’s okay. Me: LOL. I thought not.

#Baking Mysteries! Can you pick the right flour? πŸ˜œ

1 Sep


LOL! My student & I attempting to figure out which of 5,000 available flours I needed for baking. 😜 Is it a #dumpling flour or a #wheat flour or an #all-purpose flour? The Fish kind or the wheat stick kind? The life I live. . . . . . I Love it so much – even going to the grocery is an adventure!

#Burger with Hair! πŸ‘¨ Mmm mmm Good!

20 Aug

Went to #KFC and Michael tried this new #chicken ‘burger’ they are selling. The bread is just Food coloring. The stuff that looks like hair on top we THINK is fried pulled chicken? – He said it just tasted weird 😜 Unfortunately, they put the Mayo on TOP of the bun to hold on the fried stuff, so eating it was hilarious. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ Yum!
