I have no idea how to cook most of these, and if I was braver, I might try….. Shanghai has such wild diversity of foods.
Today, two different grade 6 students presented me some images they made for my Birthday. One is a soccer card, and the other is Jedi Sutton cause he said I’m just that awesome! 🙂 I love these kids, so amazing and thoughtful.
So last night, I sat down late before head and ate more than I wanted. It was a strange assortment, but good. It was, my last meal in my 3rd decade of life. Farewell 39!
Before school started, 3 former students brought me Starbucks and home made brownies! As the day progressed, the sweets kept coming. I’m so lucky to teach in a school with such loving and thoughtful kids.
A new restaurant just opened down the road, they had the coolest grand opening ceremony!
I really will miss the quality of school lunches where I work. As a free meal every day, it can’t be beat! 🙂
So Thomas called the other day and then shared these photos. Seems his buddy and he went someplace and rocked out some VR games, then won a pink bear!! Ya, that’s living the Dream for sure! Lol
And in other news, Tingting’s Dad got out of surgery just fine and will be moving in with us for a month or two. Having grandparents here for Leo will be great, though Tingting’s mom insists on pointing to, and telling me to eat everything she sees at meal times….
So, I had this geeky idea. Instead of asking “how OLD are you?” Or saying “I’m 39 years OLD”, why not up our collective IQ and get sciency (yes, I know sciency is not a word) and ask “what’s your orbit count?” To which I could answer “I have 39 orbits”. I like it!
Birth orbit: 1979
Orbital count: 39
Orbits till 2020: 1
Ya, that totally works for me, so Happy New Orbit!
