if life hands you chicken feet.

So, little bloggy. I know I promised you a smiling face and stories about orphans.

But that will have to wait. Because time flies and today needs to be documented before it gets lost in the wind.

Today was the last day of classes of this semester. Tomorrow is a study day and then tests start Wednesday. I have exams on Wednesday, Friday, and Monday. Friday is the "big one," my grammer test. It's gonna be a doozy. But I'm finding myself really apathetic about grades.

I'm learning. It will get done. Whatevs.

Here's about half of my class in our oral Chi.nese class this morning. The amount of students who actually attend classes has significantly dropped over the course of the semester. Because the teaching system here is so whack, most of these students are still allowed to take the final test (insert judgemental sentiment here).

But no matter, these are my peeps. We come from all over the world, and that's cool. Represented in this photo is Burma, Spain, USA, Mongolia, Ukraine, Korea, Germany, and Belgium. Awesomness.

me and my preggo oral Chi.nese teacher. She's precious. Has no idea what the heck she is doing in the classroom, but she's precious.

After classes I did some errands, then came home to study. After a good study session I went downtown for a late dinner with some old friends I haven't seen in awhile. We had a delightful dinner complete with these little spikey dudes...

after, we went for a few hours to KTV - the all-time best thing to do ever.

My dear friend Angel and I put our complimentary "snacks" to another use....

a photo shoot with chicken feet-

Those things were spicy and because Angel's a baby and took forever to put them in his mouth, my lips were on fire for a good ten minutes! Wuss. haha.

Tonight was fun. A much needed escape from the impending doom of Chin.ese characters.

Have a good day. If life hands you chicken feet, have a photo shoot.

walk slow. xoxo.

@sister - remember when Kiki bought us the chicken feet stew in Xiasha?!?! hahahahah!!!
@Jenna - 2.5 years ago I would never have done that...I'm desensitized now. Nothing is weird. and when you see animal parts as necessary food to sustain people, meat takes on a new form. Pig feet, organs, skin, chicken feet...there are so many hungry people and these things shouldn't go to waste.

Of course, my friend and I did waste them because those suckers went right into the trash. I guess it's just not as gross now because I see people eating those things all the time. xoxo
