Let the (mis)adventure begin

26 Aug

Once upon a time, there was a girl in the Air Force. She had learned Chinese on the job, but due to the poor decision-making and general insanity of her superiors, she never used her mad Chinese skillz. Never, that is, until she paid mega bucks and sent herself to the Middle Kingdom in June 2012. There, the sun seemed to not shine as brightly, the vehicle exhaust was particularly pungent, and out-of-shape men inexplicably walked around with their shirts rolled up around their bellies. And yet, she absolutely loved it.

And thus the entire course of this girl’s life changed. Instead of doing the adult, responsible thing, like get a real job or get smartified at school, she decided to throw caution to the wind. Upon her glorious separation from the Air Force, she ignored her university acceptance letters and offers of employment assistance from friends. Oh no, she was embarking on an adventure. A grand adventure. A spontaneous, probably crazy adventure.

Two weeks and dozens of Chenglish emails later, she found herself employed by Tianjin University of Technology and Education, to boldly teach oral English where no girl with her exact name had taught before. Such a glorious adventure deserved a glorious place to share the gloriousness. And so this blog was born.
