So I caved and ended up getting the new keyboard I’ve been eyeing from Miniso. It’s definitely lower quality than my gold Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse set, but I’m kind of concerned why the Logitech keyboard’s letters are already starting to fade, even though I’ve only had it for less than 6 months Now, I’m starting to wonder if I bought a very well-made fake. One of the many pitfalls of living in China, unfortunately.
No writing yesterday, was too busy prepping for a get-together last night I ended up leaving early from because I was bored. I want to write today, but I’m already yawning and shit, ick. It is really hot out and humid. I do not like. Can’t believe I’ve signed up to do this all summer this year. But then again, I do prefer summer heat over winter chill. Picked up an ice pillow for Dave at Miniso, but then I just realized that he’s going to be gone for most of the summer…oops. Or he can just take it with him to the States and hopefully doesn’t forget to bring it back. But, even if he does, it’s only 15 rmb, so no big loss, I suppose.
I decided I wasn’t going to go back to America this summer when I bought a bunch of seeds and dirt from Taobao. I bought some basil, peppermint, and some other stuff as well as some planters, just in case we need more. I really want to make an herb garden this year, even though I hope we’re gone next year. Whatever the case, I hope this coming school year will be the last school year for us here in China.
Okay, I’m going to leave in about half an hour, once the sun goes down and hopefully it gets a little cooler. Thankfully, it looks like things are going to get a lot cooler this coming week, so I’ll be looking forward to that. I’ve got classes to teach on Monday and Wednesday and since the RPG thing worked out so well on Wednesday (Instead of just handing out questions, I decided to approach it from a JRPG view, having my students adopt different classes and defeating monsters), I think I’m going to do that for Monday’s class as well. Hopefully class will be better and I get better classes next semester. I need to start making treasure chests and whatnot…must research this.
Ugh, so busy, so many different projects to work on.
