It has been another busy and long day. I had to go to the office early in order to sort things out to ensure that the work week plan was well in hand. I taught classes, met colleagues twice, marked some work, and went to the cinema with some students. I must have gotten to bed around eleven for a decent seven hours of rest, although eight would have been nice. It seems that something is waking me up at six o’clock every morning.
The Russian speaking colleagues had a little tea party after work to celebrate Teachers’ Day. In Russia and the former Soviet countries, Teachers’ Day falls on October the third. N brought some green tea flavoured sponge roll cake and served coffee and tea. I joined them at the end of the work day when I was passing by to leave the building and saw them in an office. That was a nice touch to the day.
Then I rushed off to meet some of my students at the cinema to watch a ghost story that was featured as one of the offerings of the Busan International Film Festival. The film, a Malaysian made flick in the Chinese language, was not very good; it was rather cheesy. The kids got somewhat scared. I thought it was amusing. We went to a cafe after the movie, and I bought them their beverages since there were only seven of us and five partaking in a beverage.
