I finished the entire series of Friends last night. Jud got me the entire set as a graduation gift, and I started from the very beginning about a week before I left for Taiwan. Averaging about 2-3 episodes a day, I watched the series finale last night. It was a bit sad, due to the ending and the fact that this has been a part of me since August. It got to the point where I was talking about Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Joey, and Chandler as if they were real people. It’s probably a good thing that I’ve stopped, and now I can get out more.
I’m now being referred to as 阿姨 A-Yi (Aunt), instead of 姊姊 Jie-Jie (older sister) by women with toddlers and babies. It kinda hurts because it makes me feel really old. I call my mom’s friends A-Yi because they’re around her age. So, when mothers refer to me as A-Yi to their toddlers and younger, it’s like saying I’m around their age and should be having children of my own soon or something. Weird.
One of my second-graders has chicken pox. I haven’t heard about that disease since the 90’s. Anyways, today is Halloween, and since I have to work all day so I didn’t get to celebrate it much. However, I let my second-graders have English Activity Day and make masks out of paper plates.
