My last day is over.  I managed to get through the tons of quizzes and other things that had to be graded, then taught the class I had to do and left. A non event. Had dinner at a Korean BBQ place which was pretty nice and then headed home.  Mixed feelings about the job […]

Today is the last day for work. Unfortunately, it is one of the worst classes. They are not bad, just really young, with parents who are very demanding. Parents sit in the classroom most of the time, and the kids cry a lot. Their attention span is mere minutes and after 40 minutes, they pretty […]

Finished the weekend! One last day, one last class, and a bunch of quizzes, tests, and work cards to grade and return to teachers and students.  Then I’ll fade into the mysts of time, probably forgotten in a few days.

Did a good bit of packing today. Even though our departure date is still 3 weeks away, I know from experience that departure dates have a tendency to just explode into the present, catching me with too much to do. Besides the last 2 weeks are up in the air. I’m not sure if we […]

I shaved my beard yesterday. An interesting experience. Already started to pack. My goal is to have the packing done […]

Susan got her visa! Very happy about that. We are definately going to the USA. Currently, we are waiting to buy the air tickets and pack up. We also have to get Katherine an exit permit. We have two more weeks at work, and then we’ll head to a city or two in China to […]

If you are reading this, I am actually already in the US. But since  we wanted things to be a bit of a surprise for people, Susan and I aren’t telling anyone at this time. Thus, I can’t just post this up for everyone to see just yet. I’ll set it for a release at […]
