This time last year

It’s been a year since these snapshots were uploaded to Flickr, and it’s interesting to see that not a lot has changed.

The things you find in class



Right now I’m marking final exams and writing student reports. I have approximagely 350 students, it takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to mark or write up one class of approximately 20 students, and I don’t get paid to do it. Am I being taken advantage of? You do the math.

I’m still with the wonderful Quynh. More than just “with”. I simply couldn’t imagine not sharing my life with her. This time last year she formally introduced me to her parents and decided to try to gross me out at the same time by eating Hot Vit Lon (fertilised duck egg) in front of me. These days our diet tends to be a lovely mix of east and west, although Quynh says I am turning Vietnamese because I love rice so much now. Last week Quynh graduated with a Bachelor of Professional Communication (with Distinction) from RMIT Vietnam. She’s been working as a highly-respected copywriter in DDB Vietnam since mid-year, and I’m extremely proud of her, of course. The graduation images can be found at my new Smugmug site.

I still rock, although I turn the volume down now because the neighbors have a baby. :-(

Saigon is still a beautiful place when you look at it the right way.

I still get weird things appearing in the classroom. This week a lovely young lady in Grade 9 was sporting this wristband.

Full wraparound text: “I love boobies” and “Keep a breast”. Obviously it’s to promote breast cancer awareness in the US, and she knew that, but she wasn’t familiar with the actual vocabulary used. She just loves the colors and design.

The same young lady wears these Mickey Mouse crocs to class each week.

Next Year?

This time next year I do believe we’ll be packing for a long-overdue Xmas in Australia.
