Why does time move so slowly when something wonderful is looming on the horizon? After eight months and 21 days, I can finally see the light shining on my packed rolling duffel bag and backpack, and my name on the Space A flight (hopefully I’ll get a seat) out of here to begin my trek to the States. Although it will roughly take between three to five days to get there, I can already smell the ocean breeze, feel the warmth of the sun on my body, the taste of a cold Yeungling on my lips, and all the sales at the shopping mall! Oh wait, I mean the excitement in the eyes of my family and friends seeing me after such a long time! 🙂 Can’t wait to see everyone!!
For the unbelievable, my students were all on time after lunch when I walked into my classroom. They were all actually working diligently without any instruction b/c they remembered what they were tasked with prior to lunch dismissal. As I stepped through the doorway, I stopped in my tracks and stared at my student that sits in the neutral seat at the table. I expect to see nuts and tea on the table after lunch. No biggie if it doesn’t interfere with the lesson. But today, what I am so dumbfounded about? Well, Mr. Neutral opted for a Krombacher in the middle of the day in lieu of his tea! I started laughing and told them not to move so I could go get my camera. I laughed so hard I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. So, the posed picture is just that, posed. The all natural photo is truly him working with his beer in arms reach! I NEED A BREAK!!!
