Hooray! Today is my birthday! Kevin and I celebrated by going out with some friends last night. In Chinese culture you foot the bill for everyone on your birthday, so originally I kind of wanted to keep it on the down-low. We’re two days from payday and the cash flow is running dry! Not to mention it just feels wrong! Even on Rita’s birthday we ended up paying for our own drinks because what kind of a birthday gift is it to pay a ginormous bar tab?! Anyway, around midnight I blurted out that it was my birthday because I couldn’t help but be excited. Our friends were really nice and bought me a drink so we could all cheers! It was a fun night. This morning Kevin and I got up early and got brunch at our favorite restaurant before he had to go to work. So delicious! Since then I’ve just been lounging around so I figured I should squeeze in a blog post.

This week, although a short week because of the holiday, is going to be difficult. I have taken on my coworkers classes while he is on vacation so I come back in the afternoons and teach his class. This is a little tricky (I started on Saturday so I’ve already had a taste) because his class is literally 4x the size of mine and the kids are on average about a year and a half older. It’s nothing I can’t handle, and it’s actually quite nice because the students know a lot more English and they understand how to play games and do more activities. However, teaching them requires a lot more energy and screaming! My regular class of 4-6 2 year olds actually never gets very loud, and I’ve got a pretty stable routine down with them. But, I’m glad for the opportunity! It’ll help buff up my paycheck a little since I’m only getting a partial one this month because I didn’t start working at the beginning of December.
