Headlines & Excerpts of Life

  • It's been pretty busy here lately
  • I've been here for 9 weeks
  • The campus has dogs. Lots of them. And the dogs form gangs. And the gangs roam the streets/sidewalks looking for loner dogs or dogs of another gang to beat up. I was walking to class when the Brown Gang beat up on Rogue and there was a show down on the steps of the Administrative Building (yes, we have a lot of time on our hands and have been studying the dynamics/politics of the dog gangs)
  • I got stuck inside of a watermelon slice (made out of cardboard) on Saturday
  • I got told that I don't speak English following a 5-7 min presentation I gave in English in class on Friday
  • I keep making friends & will have quite a lot of buddies/stalkers if I'm not careful
  • I enjoy going to the gym to watch people attempt to jump rope
  • There was an earthquake on Thursday
  • My mum is coming to visit me in December
  • I'll be flying to Corpus in January
  • I have been experimenting with yogurt and discovered that I like "hard" yogurt
  • While experimenting with yogurt I discovered that I'm not a fan of botanical yogurt
  • I've been having a hard time with the wooden chopsticks lately...I keep getting splinters
  • I got to hear Ander sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to me via Skype
  • I scared Cole by telling him that in Taiwan people don't really celebrate took me a while to rebuild the myth of Santa. Never fear, Santa goes everywhere and the good little boys and girls of Taiwan will get toys!
  • I am getting a haircut on Monday and would like to come out with hair while still looking decently good
  • The kids attending the experimental kindergarten next to my dorm seems to be getting louder...I think they might need to tone down their testing
The end.

Oh, I found Millicent (or Mildred) while doing laundry this past weekend!

Oh baby,
When you blog with bullets instead of paragraphs I can read between the lines! TOO much mid-term and abstract writing this weekend! Go get a jump rope and show 'em how it's done!
On the other hand, that dancing watermelon slice looked pretty juicy! I'm comin' to get the hard yogurt! Love you!
