"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."  False:

  • the bird in your hand must be a small bird in order for you to have it in your hand.  the birds in the bush may be any size and thus possibly worth more at market
  • it is possible to throw a net around the bush, guaranteeing capture of the two birds
  • going after the two birds does not necessitate the release of the bird in your hand.  transfer custody of the bird to a trusted associate for a shot at a total of three birds

"Oh, excuse me, madam. Sorry. This may seem strange, but have you seen a fallen star anywhere?"
"You’re funny."
"No, really, we’re in a crater. This must be where it fell."

8/9/14: A Tour of East Meets West

8/9/14: A Tour of East Meets West

I started out from Shekou pretty early (for me) and caught the ferry to Macau. I really like the ferries a lot. Boats! :)

So the first thing I did when I got there was go up to the Mount Fortress starting from Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, which is a shopping street. But that’s where the bus took me and so that’s where I started. The Macau Museum is in the fort, but it was Monday and so the museum…

When people look down on modern literature in favor of the classics, they forget the classics were once modern literature that was looked down upon by people like them.

I’ve been posting negative things about my current situation on twitter and my dad sent me a message saying I shouldn’t because my employer might see it (they can’t, twitter and Facebook are both blocked here) and I’m “not really making myself popular with the people rooting for me”.

So basically, what I’m finding is that people want to hear about my experience, but they don’t want to hear the truth of how awful and put upon I feel when I find out at 10:45pm that I’m teaching at 4:00pm the next day. They don’t want the truth about how I still don’t know my class schedule for the term that’s already started. They want to know that things are all happy sunshine and rainbows and nothing bad is ever presented.

The truth is I spent most of my summer alone in my apartment trying to figure out what to do. The truth is this school is using me for my foreign status and paying me not as much as they would other foreigners. The truth is I still don’t know what other classes I’ll be teaching, but I have a feeling it’s going to be 50+ students again and the school will tell me I don’t have a textbook because they don’t understand why a spoken English class needs one.

The truth is not rainbows and sunshines, but if I’m going to pretend in person that everything is, I need a place to say everything isn’t.
