Good day. It's almost five in the afternoon, and I thought I should dash off this entry before leaving campus because I know the internet access is reliable and secure here. I had a normal work day from about 11 on with teaching for three hours and doing some admin and class preparation chores.
I got to have another long sleep, perhaps about 10 hours. I was relaxed this morning and played the desktop games for awhile. I finally wrote a letter in reply to I who sent me a full e-letter last week. I took my time getting ready for work and having an early lunch before making it to campus in time for the noon-hour class. I did fit in about 30 minutes of study.
The freshman class mock business party was held. Some of the students got into it, but not all. We just did it for about 15 minutes, then got into a regular lesson. They have to do a quiz next time.
I passed by B on the way home and we continued the walk together. We decided to try the juk (rice porridge) restaurant at the base of our apartment building. K, the Myanmar teacher, saw us and joined us for some chicken and chopped vegetable porridge. It was very fresh. Maybe I had too much of the tasty kimchi side dish because I think I have a little gas now. Anyway, it was a nice dinner and a nice together with two people who have been apartment building neighbors and workplace colleagues for four years.
B, who is a teacher of Turkish, was successful in getting her department to host a visitor from Khazakstan this coming weekend. She consulted me for some ideas about venues in case the university did not want to provide space. She was contacted by the embassy and urged to set up a speaking opportunity but her department did not want to do it at first. Finally, they relented.
B had news from a former colleague who is back home in her native Indonesia. The woman sent us some treats, wafers and dried melon.I've already tried the wafers and they are really delicious. I wish to write her a letter and send her something but I don't have her contact information.
