Color Quiz

Yesterday, I talked on the phone with my brother and sister-in-law and they were asking me what is my next step. I told them I was coming home, but wasn't sure what I would do after that... I was clueless...I am clueless, but they asked what career I was thinking about...after getting off the phone with them, I felt the need to find out more about what I wanted to do as a career. I do not want to be teaching forever...

I remember from my freshmen year in college, that we had to take the career test based on our personality. I'd long forgotten my results.

I first took this test: Career Test

It was pretty cool to see the results. For the most part, they are pretty accurate.

Then I found this test, which was by far the most enjoyable! A color test!

This test is the main reason why I am writing this blog post. It was fun and informative, in a true fashion.

Here it is: Color Test

It's Official!

It's official! August I am coming back to the States. I have some friends and family to visit! It will be a year in August since I was home. I plan to visit Hawaii, Utah, and Missouri. I am excited! I need to start planning for all of those things. I am still undecided about returning to Taiwan. I am just not sure right now. But I am coming to the U. S. of A! Probably around August 6th or so....

10 NT Coin: The Man in the Middle

I went to 7-11 tonight and the most unlikely thing happened. I had just paid for my good and I receieved a 10 dollar coin from the cashier. I looked at it and noticed the person from the middle of the coin. I was little confused because it is not normally the person (on the coin) that I normally see. I must've had a puzzled look on my face because he cashier was looking at me and wondered what I was confused by. I got the coin and asked him "新的嗎?" (wow, it took too long to write that...". He said yes, it is new. I asked him if it was this year's coin. He told me it was last years. And that on the 10 coin from two years ago is different. All there years are different (different person in the middle of the coin). The guy on the ten dollar coin from last year is also on the 1,000 bill. (or at least that I what I understand about it). Also each year they don't make too many new ones. I thanked him like a million times for the info.

It was a fun and cool experience.

And it was all in Chinese. I even "re-learned" a new word in Chinese. When he was speaking about the coin he would say "bi" and at first I thought he was talking about the comparison "bi", but later I realized that he was talking about the NT currency, which is called the "Taibi"

It was just a lot of fun and I learned something new. I am going to go look up more information on it.

Erin 2.0

Random Title...ha ha! Well, here's an brief update on my life. I am still in Taiwan teaching in Hsinchu. I just got to to move my classroom to the new building at school. It is a beautiful classroom! :D I am in love with it. I am so happy. It is my new romance. And since we will be spending so much time together, it only makes sense. My Chinese learning is so-so. I haven't spend so much time studying it and still have so much to learn.

I've been going out more with co-workers and friends. It is great. Whenever I make my exodus from this great land, I will miss it greatly. I am getting to know my city better. Last week, I went with my boyfriend to the glass museum, but just looked at the shops and walked around the day market. It was very fun! :D

This week I'm starting Script Frenzy (the sibling of NaNoWriMo). My script is called: Into the Darkness (it's not horror). I am not sure what is a about, cause I haven't started writing it yet.

Well, maybe I will start posted more. I need to realize that I don't need to post a long post, but just post. With the encourage of a few friends, I am encouraged to write more...
