This week is our fist week of classes. My first years get the usual introduction:
Hi, my name is Amanda. I'm from America. I love animals. Etc.
Then we play the BINGO game. They have to find someone who can answer "Yes" to any of the questions that make an "X" on the board.
One question is: "Can you read English upside down?"
Now, this is the first time in the two years that I've had my students do this activity that it was taken quite literally.
A girl, wearing pants, proceeds to do a hand stand to prove that she can read English upside down.
I wish I had my camera! This class quickly became my favorite class. I'm so happy I have them Friday Morning!!
On a more personal note I found out the hard way that I know absolutely NOTHING about men. In a recent Text message I might have accidentally insulted a man's pride. Actually, there is no "might" about it. I did. I didn't even realize it until my friend pointed it out. It's been a whole day and he hasn't responded to any of my text messages. I've apologized and tried to send sweet messages in hopes of balancing out the really hurtful thing I said.
One friend, trying to console me, said "Well, que sera sera...You were honest and that's what matters"
But I was honest over a TEXT MESSAGE. I should have waited. When I see him all thoughts fly out the window so I thought I should get it out before he makes me forget. *sigh*
What did I say?
Well...We met up last weekend and hung out for a short time. He had to work early so he was rushing me back to the hotel. I was already drunk and more than ready to go back. However, he was really rushing. He walked in front of me (That's a warning bell to me). He then proceeded to quickly get me undressed. We quickly had sex (Don't get me wrong--it was amazing). We quickly showered. He quickly slept afterwards. He apologized for needing sleep but he had to work really early in the morning. He wouldn't get out until late the next day (6am to 10pm). I understood that he needed the sleep but I felt cheap. So, I thought I should let him know how I felt.
I said, in a text message, "Walking was fast, sex was fast, shower was fast, sleeping was fast. I felt bad after"
He said "Sorry" and that's all. Nothing since. :(
Ahhhhhhhh, Kids do the darndest things :(
