At it again

It may be hard to start anew, but we often forget the lessons of the past and are thus allowed to move forward with more rewarding mistakes. I am "at it again" writing this blog, which begins in in December because I accidently erased it. I am "at it again" living abroad because I I erased from my memory the continous miscommunication and confusion of it. Luckly you can sit back in the comforts of your native language and culture and enjoy my adventures, hopefully with a laugh or snicker.

Come see my photos

So you should all go take a look at my photos on flickr
Here's a teaser to intice you
They're all taken on my new camera.

In other news:
Event hough I only have about 2 weeks left of this job, I have not entirely checked out, infact I'm starting to think I'm a pretty good teacher. I have gotten to doing things the easier way, which does not me the bad way. I've just learned what shortcuts allow more time for other things and still get the job done. Today my build a human house game went over really well, I was requested for an encore of hangman (if I'd known they liked it so much I would have started playing earlier) and when my co-teacher didn't come back to class to start the 5th grade, I very successfully did it on my own. Way to go me.

Now I will go home and relax because I suppose I deserve it.

But one more thing- They've set up the room next to mine, which is usually the security room as a dentist's office. Kids keep leaving class to have their cavities taken care of. Part of me thinks this a wonderful thing and that basic medical care should be done at all schools. The other part of me thinks that the set up can't be all that great since the whole thing seems to come and go. It lends a 3rd world, health clinic feeling to Taiwan that I can't say I see in other sectors. Hummm, maybe I should get my teeth checked. On second thought, maybe not.
