Resolution #2 – 2019 Reading List

Resolution #2 – 2019 Reading List

This year once again I have set a resolution to read 4 books throughout the year. I know that sounds like a terribly small number, but I am not a reader by any means. So I figured 4 was a safe number that I could easily achieve and take pride in the fact that I was learning something new.

She was very excited. I told her that originally I had no intentions of telling her until she arrived in Chengdu which at that point I would be 14 weeks pregnant. I told her I realized if I waited to inform her until then she would have been pretty upset by the fact she couldn’t bring anything for the grand baby on the way, so I decided against waiting and told her when I was about 10 weeks along. She told me I made a good choice and she would have been very upset, haha.

Note: I started this post in September and finished it recently.


There is nothing like starting the school year and finding out that you won’t be teaching at the same school you have taught at for the last two years. In fact, I was quite sad about the news as I was told the school would no longer be working with Haida, my company, and they would have to find me a new school. While this means I will have a relaxing month of September, except for traveling to Leshan to teach at a kindergarten which luckily I only had to go once during the whole month.
