No Lions, No Tigers, But Snot Rockets! Oh. My...

After one month of life in Russia, the universe has shown me yet again how incapable I am at playing nice with others. Having a personality that my loving parents refer to as 'being larger than life', I more often than not am shoving my tiny feet into my mouth. Therefore, trying to conceal my emotions about things is never easy for me, and trying to conceal my emotions about things that BUG me, forget about it. So difficult!

Naked Nakedness Everywhere. A Banya Story!

I was going to wait a few days before making a new post, but this is just too crazy to not share with you immediately.

Kinda like when you buy a Christmas present for someone, and the present is just SO good that waiting to give it to them all month nearly destroys you?

This is like that.

Cali for Real na

(California)

All I could see were hundreds of white windmills spinning in the breeze across the mountains, and I knew we weren't in Arizona anymore. Living in Phoenix, a mere five hour drive to California, my family set off on our first Californian vacation. My sister, Olivia, put her face up against the glass, her smile evident. We were in the Sunshine State, finally!

We Sang of the Monsoon

As I pushed back in discomfort, to stretch my legs, I could feel the grinding of the metal on the granite floor. It was last period, history, the sun was blazing, and the mercury was still climbing. The hard walls and the glass windows only seemed to be amplifying the heat. My pistachio blue uniform shirt had to be buttoned up all the way, with a choking tie, and a navy blue pair of pants that was itchy, ill fitting, and tight in all the wrong places. There were about forty eight students in that class.

Kirei

I tell my high school students that when I first came to Japan, I felt like a fish.

Why would Emily Sensei feel like a fish? I ask.

Because you are wearing a red shirt!

Nope, guess again. 

Because you like to swim.

I do, but no, that’s not the right answer. 

Because you are delicious!

What?! Um, no.

I usually follow up by showing a picture of a fish in a bowl and ask these questions:

Water[melon] for Elephants

The rough, wrinkly trunk wraps itself around the hunk of squash I hold in my outstretched hand...then promptly tosses it away, reaching out again expectantly for another snack.
