#Tuvalu and the #Round Ocean Economy

19 Apr

#Student – They (#tuvalu) are a good economy becuase the land is small and the ocean is round.

#Me — It’s the ’round’ #ocean that is the make-or-break factor here. . . Those hexagonal oceans are just worthless. Might as well not exist. 🏝️😝

Terrorists for #Tourism = Bad Foreign Policy!

17 Apr

#Student: Tuvalu has some nice #beaches. So they can let some more terrorists in their country and get better profit.
Me: . . . . . 😮 I think you meant “#tourist” darlin. I’m pretty sure terrorists do not equal more profits.🌴🏝️

The #Royalty is here! Now go away. . . . (#Teaching humor)

Moving Abroad Questions: What’s For Sale?

24 Jun

In August, I will be officially changing my residence address to one in Xinzheng, China, selling my possessions here in the States and starting a new life over there.  I have been really blessed in that my University has established a Facebook Group for all the foreign teachers there.  All of us newbies are asking tons of questions of those who went before, and I thought I’d share some of the important ones as they come up.  If you are moving to teach or changing jobs for one overseas, you might want to ask your organization or contacts the same questions!

1. What’s for Sale?

I never really thought about, but sometimes the people leaving have things for sale.  Leaving teachers at my school are offering things like medicine, water purifiers, American towels, potted plants, shelving, curtains, etc.  The kind of things I don’t want to take, they don’t want to bring back, and no one wants to buy.  See what your place has to offer!
