#Travel WoesΒ 

24 Jun

It’s official – my name is too long for China 😭 They took my boarding pass away and had to get special approval for my name πŸ˜‚ Finally (after deliberation) they officially agreed to just write it on the pass. 😜

So #Old

20 Jun

My students have been taking graduate pictures. πŸ“· πŸŽ“ They keep talking about how ‘old they are’ now – they’re like 19-24. 😱 Horrible I know. . .  I’m 27! They’re aging me folks! If they’re ‘old’ – I’m one step out of the grave πŸ‘»

#Teacher Humor ~ Why my darlings, Why?!?

19 Jun

Student πŸ‘¦attends a sum total of 9/22 classes πŸ’»for the semester — not including the last class where we discussed the examπŸ“š. Sends me an urgent emailπŸ“§, “But Teacher, we have many questions before the test.” . . . . . .

Me πŸ‘© πŸ’’ (in my mind. . .) “I don’t think you need to worry about that”.πŸ™„
My actual answer πŸ‘© (😣)”. . . . . I distinctly remember πŸ€”telling you not ❌ to miss any more classesπŸ““ this semester — you missed 🏝three in a row. We discussed the test last class, but you skipped itπŸ’€πŸ˜΄.”
Student πŸ‘¦: “Oh yes teacher. I know!”

#TeachingLols ~ That’s a lot of Kids!

6 Apr
πŸ˜†
So I’m working with my international students (Mongolia, Indonesia, and India) and asked what they did this summer.
One girl goes off because she expected to have a vacation, but got stuck working. She starts listing all of her chores, complaining, and the other students are just nodding along commiserating.
She finally gets to the part where she had to babysit her siblings and cousins. The kids are like “yep, yep” right up until she goes “So, I just want to say that I’ve learned from this summer. I mean, I am totally not going to have more than 5 kids. That’s just more than enough.” Said completely sincerely with no inflection or emphasis at all. Β You could see them start to nod again, stop, look at one another and turn in unison to stare at her. One girl goes “FIVE kids” with eyes real big. She goes “Yeah! I mean, I think stopping there is plenty.” They stare some more. I crack up secretly on the inside.
This in the country where 2 kids is only just now allowed universally and is still pretty rare in the cities.Β 

#Students – Always Pushing, Pushing

7 Mar
πŸ‘ΈMe: Only one rule – You MUST use nasdaq.com or marketwatch.com so you can become familiar with international finance tools. It’s important to know how the rest of the world works! πŸ’°πŸ“ˆπŸ“ŠπŸ’ΉπŸŒ
πŸ‘§Student: Can I use this random Chinese company I found on a different website. It’s really easy for me to find cause it’s all Chinese.
πŸ‘ΈMe: Is it on nasdaq or marketwatch?
πŸ‘§Student: . . . . No.
πŸ‘ΈMe: . . . . . . . . . .πŸ˜’πŸ™„
πŸ‘§Student: Never mind Teacher! I Know.
πŸ‘ΈMe: πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‹πŸ™ƒ

Students – They’re always pushing, pushing.

Chinese #IceCream – you can have mine :p

25 Feb

​​

The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same πŸ˜‚ This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling.  Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜

#LawSchool ~ Ruining #Books since Forever

How Law School Ruins Your Life #3billion – You suddenly realize that every great library in movies is actually filled with law books (you can tell from the bindings). And suddenly the library seems just a little bit less fun and more like school 0_0 SADNESS!!!

#Cooking Abroad

23 Feb

#cooking in #China πŸ˜„ When you live in a #itsybitsy apartment with no counter space and definitely nooven, you have to do a little engineering for #baking #chocolatechipcookies πŸ˜‚  So instead we use an old #target game board and a table oven. My life is so much fun!
