Year in Review

stolen from some other blogs... look at the title or first line (or both) of the first entry of each month in the last year, and you'll have your year in review. Here's mine:

2005 - A Year in Taiwan

January: confessions of a blog slacker.... HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Xin Nian Kuai Le! (January 5)
February: A fun-filled weekend. Our visit with Ada was loads of fun!
March: every day's the first day i'm not sure i have any really good excuse for my lack of updating last week....
April: What a life! Let's see, Wednesday was interesting... I had a good Elementary class, not so hot Jr. High class, and a no show teacher's class....
May: hualian and hualian wow, we spent a disproportionate amount of time in Hualian last week!
June: Sun, snorkeling, scooters, and seaweed ice cream Sunday morning, 5:30am, we woke up and quietly exited our friend Faith's apartment to get breakfast and wait for our taxi.
July: Happy Canada Day! San Min 7/8. My favorite Jr. High class. In honor of the holiday I saved the picture with students waving Canadian flags I gave them.
August: va-ca-tion I had a great time in Taipei. It was the longest I'd been away from Yuli since Chinese New Year (in Feb).
September: Typhoon. The adage of the calm before the storm rings eerily true as the day before the typhoon settles upon me.
October: Right now I am eating a very interesting dessert consisting of warm soft tofu in a hot syrup.
November: Xia Yu Tian can't stop us! Winter is coming. The temperature has dropped and last weekend it poured constantly.
December: Trip #1 - Southbound My south-island tour (not quite as exotic as it sounds LOL) was quite enjoyable.

What can we learn from all of this?

  • I need to start my entries in more interesting ways
  • I only mentioned my actual job 3 times... highlights of the year apparently were the weather (3 times), food (twice), and travelling/having fun (5 times)
  • It seems I'm having way too much fun - I really DO work! I promise!

Speaking of having too much fun... here's a picture of the awesome beach I went to yesterday with A-Hsiang:
