Day 20. I just noticed. It's January 21, shouldn't I have 21 days?
Tonight we did another take on WORDS. We did it two years ago. PERIOD. Tonight we did a much better version of words.
Featuring: The Apple and the Blackberry. Edible Technology.
Another week coming to an end. Before long, January will be over. When we least expect it, 2010 will come to an end. I know it's too early for me to say that, but it's TRUE. Plus, I love it when the year-end is just around the corner. Now I can say, "I remember the first day at work..." even though it's only just been over two weeks since I started. I still battle with my students' names. It's not easy remembering Thai names, what more nick names. I'm still asking students what their names are, and telling them I actually knew what their name is, I simply ask to confirm... whatever.
At one of the first classes which I was in, I was writing on the board. I overheard some of the students saying "ajarn dek dek" to which I quickly responded, "Krai bok phom ajarn dek dek?"
Students, never mess with your teachers. Teachers, never underestimate your students. I took a picture of myself today and noticed how much rest I need to make me look handsome, again.
Why did I post up this picture? Tomorrow is my first teaching day. Applied Phonetics will be the first class, at 8:00 am. I hope I won't bore the students, and I hope they will accept and trust me :) I sound very proper in this particular post. Oh my, I'm being subdued into becoming more refined... whatever that means. The book I'm using for this phonetics class is a British one, I think I'll enter the class and greet everyone with a British accent. Right after that, I'll be showered with stale vegetables and fruits like the days at the Shakespearean theater. Good luck, to all teachers.
This is us eating at Mr. Meng's. A Chinese restaurant which I'll definitely visit again.
This is not a photoblog. I’m not quite sure what it is yet. Hopefully I’ll reach a ‘definition’ of what I want this blog to be for the year 2010. Inspired by some other blogs, I’ve decided to post a picture of myself (how vain…) or of anything that interests me for the whole year. Also, like many other people, I’m good at starting something without ever completing it. This is one of the ventures I’d like to see being completed by the end of the year. We’ll see how it goes. I’m no professional photographer. I’ll be relying on a Sony Alpha 200, my nokia E52, and a Canon Powershot A620.
Presenting the first photograph, featuring yours truly.
By the way, Happy New Year!
