so long

So long, my dear friend! First the Bella left, now another friend has gone back home. In other news, I’ve also been planning some stuff for September when I come back from vacation. It’s been really hectic. I haven’t had much time to actually sit down to write something. Bad, I know, especially since I’m in the beginning stages of the blogging game.

teaching English

I’ve been teaching English in China for over six months now, and I am enjoying every minute of it. The current place I’m working at, is THE BIGGEST English training facility in China. I got this job because of my teacher, she’s such a doll. I make it a habit to ask my students why they are learning English. They pay six thousand Renminbi for three months. That’s a lot of money! It is my job to make sure they get their money’s worth, for money doesn’t grow on trees. […]
