Professor #Panda!

Is it me? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜„πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ˜‹

Danger Will Robinson! #Deathtrap

27 Aug

This is the hallway to my classroom each day – because #safety and #health are, like, so passe! πŸ˜…
Yesterday they had a machine spraying the ceiling and made all the kids walk underneath the spraying machine while its running and showering them in #chemicals. Today the #marble floors were all soaked. Have you ever walked on wet marble? #China has an old Love affair with the stuff, but when wet it turns into a slip-n-slide. πŸ˜‚
Meanwhile, we’re all sitting around breathing the chemicals all day during class.

Lol, I need this intensive to be finished. πŸ˜›

All Rise for the Monthly Reading of the Cute Boy Band Memorandum!

25 Aug

Someone’s Hot Guys Magazine came in yesterday!
And by someone, I mean the 3 female students sitting in front of me in the auditorium. And by hot guys, I mean a boy band group of some type. Three magazines filled with pictures of the boy band group being all awesome and, according to a credible source (aka Girl #1) ‘wow!’. The girls were so excited, sharing the magazines between them and already folding down faves. Then break struck and the rest of their crew arrived to check it out. Lol, I haven’t seen so much fangirling since the tall French boy came for study abroad and had the girls hanging out in the Bridge CafΓ© to watch him. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

Distracted #Cooking!

13 Aug

Lol πŸ˜› Decided to make my mom a treat the other day – #NoBake Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies.

To be fair to myself, I was also baking #stuffedpeppers, answering student messages, and finishing a major project for my MSc.

anyway, I was already experimenting a bit. No #butter, so I tried #CoconutOil. No #PeanutButter, so I made my own.

Got to taste them and mom’s like ‘these don’t taste right. . . ‘

Me: ‘Better term – They taste #disgusting 😱

Us: Why πŸ€”

Mom: Did you #cook them to a high enough temperature?πŸ™‚

Me: ❓❓❓ They don’t cook, they’re #nobake.

Mom: πŸ˜³πŸ™„

Me: Wait. . . . ‘checks recipe’ Well *&%$.

Hahahaha! They were supposed to be boiled, and I didn’t cook them at all. No wonder they were #terrible #spititout

Sure #Twitter – Seems legit

10 Aug

So. . . if I asked you who is trending in #sKorea on #Twitter What would you say? #BTS? 🎡 #KDrama? 🎞

Duh! How silly are you?!? Of Course it would be the #Dubai Police HQ! Like, I’m not even sure how you thought it would be someone else? πŸ€”

Congrats to them on the big event though!

Where do you want to display these awesome #backtoschool pillows! – China #haul

7 Aug

These #dentist pillows from Walmart in China were HUGE – came to my hips. . . They were in the #backtoschool supplies. I confess – I don’t see the point πŸ˜‚ To remind you kids when they wake up to brush their #teeth? For classsroom #decorations?

WHERE WOULD YOU PUT THEM?!?

Shopping at Samsung

1 Aug

Sooooo. I recently had to buy a new #laptop 😭 Lawrence the Laptop has a broken touchpad, broken microphone jack, crashing battery, a fan that’s competing with airplanes for loudest lift-off, and lose USB ports. Poor baby!

After exhaustive research I decidedto get a #Samsung notebook 9. At 13.3 inches and super lightweight, it’snice for travel. Unfortunately #Samsung US website SUCKS and I couldn’t get it ordered before my mom came to #China. So I thought, why not go to #Korea! I’m there on vacay – hone of #Samsung. No prob!

Big prob! The laptop was $400 more expensive for a lower quality product! Instead of i7 they had i5 and instead of 16RAM, it was 8RAM. 😑😑

BUT! I was headed to #China and had to have a computer, so I picked it up anyway. Lil – funniest thing. So, the dude waiting on me was the cutest guy. Very nice, good English, helpful. But I was complaining (spectacularly) about the price. So he promised to give me a gift 😬

My gift? – A selfie stick, a toothbrush holder (with toothbrush! woop!), and a car magnet πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜œπŸ˜ In fact, he gave me another set to my mom as well. Lololol. Not sure it was worth $400, but you know? I’m still laughing about it – so they’re probably #priceless.

Couple notes for potential expats:

1) Did you know many #computer products bought in the #US require that you keep the product in theUS to maintain warranty?
2) Your US warranty won’t always work abroad – #Dell won’t service my #laptop in #China even though it has centers here Cause I have a US warranty.
3) Foreign warranty’s may not be as good as the US version. So be careful before agreeing to transfer warranty from one country to another.

#Warning! – #Fire is Hot!

OMG this week is confusing πŸ˜‚
There are about 28 sophomores re-taking economics this semester. The school has changed our schedule for this week 4 times now.
Β 
There are also about 4 of them failing the class right now. I am setting up one-on-one meetings with them.
Β 
Problem: They call meetings ‘classes’ — So my conversations go something like this:Β 
Β 
Me: Hey darling, we have class at 8:30am now.
Β 
Student: So I should come to your office then?
Β 
Me: No, that is still the same. This is class with your friends.
Β 
Student: Oh. . . .
Β 
Me: Hey darlin, our class was changed to 7:00pm so we need to rearrange our meeting to another time.
Β 
Student 2: So. . . . I don’t have class at 7:00.
Β 
Me: No, you do have class at 7:00. But we don’t have our meeting.
Β 
Student 2: Oh, I will come to your office at 7:00.
Β 
Me: πŸ˜… No. . . that’s the class with your friends.
Β 
Student 2: -_-Β  Β 
Me: . . . . . Guess what, Class is now moved to 3:30pm. . . . . So we need to move our meeting and the class.Β 
Student 3: (sobbing face).
Β 
Me: This is so confusing. . . .
