Sunday


wp-1480221897433.jpeg

So, today is Sunday, at least I think it is because I am getting the strangest deja vu that yesterday was Sunday. Ugh, that’s a extra-long weekend does to me. If today is Sunday, then tomorrow is Monday. I’m dreading it already. I’ve the Sunday Blues! I found out last night that one of my papers should be 8-plus pages long and will be due in two weeks. Yikes!

Meanwhile, we had the last of the remainder of this delicious duck last night. Some people have turkey for Thanksgiving, well, we had duck for Thanksgiving. My mom was craving duck after the hot pot that she had to make trip to Chinatown on Thanksgiving Day to grab a roast duck. “This is our turkey,” she said on the trip back. She was extra happy that day for some reason, which was contagious because I was happy too.

I started a podcast over the Thanksgiving break. It’s something I wanted to do for a while. The podcast is my way of overcoming my fears of hearing my voice and impromptu speaking. Since I have a hunch I will be teaching when I get back to China, I have to embrace my voice in order to be confident and then the parents won’t be feeling like they are hiring a wimp to teach their son or daughter.

The podcast is not very different from this blog. The name’s the same, for one. I am basically re-telling my favorite stories from this blog. It is available on Podbean (a podbean hosting website) and iTunes. Below are the links. So far, there’s only one episode but I’m hoping I’ll add another one next week. If you want to read the story, here is the link. I hope you’ll enjoy.
