I finished the final summer camp a week ago and went back to my other job. I only have six weeks until I leave Beijing, so I can’t afford to take time off.

I’m working 37 hours this week, with no days off. It’s not so bad but it’s all the waiting and preparation time between classes that really adds up. Yesterday, I taught seven hours of classes but, with breaks and commuting, it was a thirteen hour day.

A student drew the picture of me above for the school magazine. I don’t know how to respond. It’s special.
