Root Beeeeeer!

I found Root Beer here in Taiwan at Carrefore! I was so happy to find it. I had had Root Beer one time here before up in Taipei. That time I really didn't taste like Root Beer. There was also this time when we had Dad's Root Beer at Sue's BBQ! That was super delicious, but since that time I hadn't had a decent Root Beer.

So, after drinking some honest Root Beer that is readily available, I will buy it more often. Also I found it at the Gov't Store! Makes me sooooo soooo SOOOOO happy!

Started a New Blog

I started a new blog today.
It is a daily blog.
It is called: The Day In One Word
Check it out if you like.

Some Signs I'm Still A Kid At Heart

So, I am going to write a blog. Here is the main idea; okay, I try to sound adult and that I know what I am doing in my life, but the truth of the matter is that I am still a kid at heart. I seem to be attracted to things that are, for the lack of the a better term, for kids. Allow me, let me, illustrate for both of our amusement!

Sign No. !:
Kitty Wallet

Sign No. %:
Key-chain With A Monkey & A Shoe

Sign No. !_!:
Water Bottle With A Plethora of Stickers

Sign No. &:
Pokemon Towel

Sign No. ^_^:
Puppy Dog & Cat Umbrella
(this one is kinda cheating as I bought it in 11th grade, which was 9 years ago!!!)

Sign No. #:
No Control Over the Urge to Buy Small Cute Stuffed Animals

Sign No. @:
Small Plastic Kitty Toy W/ Similar Desk Lamp
(both of these are kinda cheats, but what the hey)

Sign No. *:
Cute Solar-Powered Plastic Plants and Goes From Side to Side

Sign No. MONKEY!:
A Stuffed Monkey That I Sleep With Every Night



There we have it: I am still a kid at heart! Nothing more to say. I just enjoyed writing this blog.

It's Only Via Miracle

This week something strange has been happening! Prepare yourselves, especially those of you who know me and my sleeping habits. I usually go to bed late and wake up late. This semester and the two before it I decided to work mornings so I could have time in the evening. Well, for some strange reason, this past week I have been getting up early. Around 6 or 6:30am. Crazy, I know!

One morning, I woke up at 6:00am because all my other roommates were up. I think I heard Amy's alarm clock, woke up and decided to stay up. I did not do much, but I liked the free time that I had, so I decided to do it again. That next morning, I got up and even went to the store and made it make to the school by 7:00am. So unreal for me. I think I am finally realizing how much I like to get up early.

Last night, I made a schedule of list of things to do the next day, today.

This morning was the most insane morning of all. I woke up at 5:30am. I think it was probably because some one was calling me. I didn't get to answer it on time... I had set my alarm for 6:30, so waking up was crazy. Well, I woke up and dinked around on Facebook. Then I took a shower. When I got back, I was going to read, but then laid down, and easily fell asleep. So much for my list of things to do. Can't be perfect.

Well, yay, we'll see how long this new phase lasts...

The Moth That (Probably) Would Be King

A tale of tragedy and intrigue. Of kindness and honor. I am hardly (probably because I am not looking sometimes) surprised anymore here in Taiwan, but today was one of those days in which I was...delightfully surprised!!

This morning in my KBR class during out trip to the bathroom and to drink water. The kids started pointing at something chatting amongst themselves. I walked over to find out what they were looking at. There precariously perched on the door was a moth! A medium sized light brown moth. The kids were all excited. It was beautiful, there was no denying it.

I decided that I was going to save it. I ran over to the little refrigerator in the secretaries area and grabbed a cap and then got a piece of paper to go save the moth. I went back to the door and pushed through the crowd of children. I put the paper cup over the moth and then slid the paper underneath. I unwittingly, while sliding the paper under, ripped off the wings of the moth.

I took the moth outside and upon entering the kids all asked: Where is the moth? I said: it is outside! and then I had to admit to them that I had killed it! :( They all wanted to go outside to look at the moth. I told them to line up.

I went about my business feeling sorry about the moth, but didn't think they would be anything else. I look over and the kids are standing near the door with the hands held together and they were bowing. They were praying over the moth in unison. They were doing "bai bai" for the moth. I asked them what they were doing and they replied: We are helping the "butterfly"!

Spell Checker and Grammar Checker

I found this great spell checker and grammar checker. It is great!!! It is good. You just copy and paste text into it and wham-O! You can get a thesaurus as well!
