So today I start my summer vacation. Its been a long semester, but when I start to think about it, school seems to get by quicker and quicker as each year goes by. Does this mean life is gonna feel shorter as I age?
Anyways, the semester is a success. I passed all my classes, and final exams went by in a breeze. Now I get to relax and hangout with people in Orlando till I have to head back to Miami, in preparation for my trip to Taiwan.
Its going to be an interesting trip indeed. Its been 4 years since the last time I visited, and a lot can happen in those 4 years. With the passing of my Uncle last summer, we all knew that it can happen at any time. So visiting the relatives has taken top priority this summer. I will not be taken any summer classes or working. Just going to go to Taiwan and spend time with the family, see my grandparents, and enjoy the atmosphere.
I've recently gotten in contact with my cousin in Taiwan through facebook. Through her I got to see pictures of the family. Boy has things changed. My younger cousins who used to look like children, now look like young adults. My darling nephews have grown so much. My one year old nephew is now 4, and he has a younger brother.
I'll also have the chance to experience teaching in a foreign country. Its kind of nerve racking trying to think up of a lesson plan for Taiwanese 1st graders. Thankfully I'm only teaching English, and if all goes right, it should be a joy to teach these students.
Anyways, I'm glad its finally the summer. The weather is getting warmer, and the shorts are coming out of the closet again. Mornings aren't cold anymore; I used to have to wear a sweater to go to my 9am class. Now I don't have to worry about waking up that early, and looking like a surf bum.
This summer should be amazing!
