The Dapper Party was last weekend, and it was a lot of fun. Organized by Jaz, a fellow ALT, it originated from a FaceBook post she made where she mused, Wouldn’t it be cool if we could dress up really fancy? Um, yeah it would!
Today was opening ceremonies for the second* semester. Imagine a gymnasium that has no seating, no climate control, and no insulation. That’s where the staff stand and the students sit through the hour long opening ceremonies. The smart students bring blankets. I throw formality to the wind and wear three layers: my coat and scarf, blazer or sweater, and shirt. If I’m warned about the ceremony a day in advance, I also wear leggings. Unfortunately, in my indoor shoes, my feet stay cold.
