Thanksgiving Story[12/13/2006 12:00 AM]
Turkey? Check. Stuffing? Check. Snow? Check. Snow for Thanksgiving? Yes, that’s what greeted the foreign faculty of Sias International University that cold Thursday morning in Xinzheng. The light fluffy flakes started out about the size of a fen, oops, make that dime, and grew to the size of a quarter in about an hour. It wasn’t enough to stick to the ground, but it was enough to add to the

Student Journal: October 2006[12/02/2006 12:00 AM]
Today, something dawned on me. And I want to write down something about my life at Sias and talk about my impressions of exchanging ideas with foreign teachers. When I was a freshman, I was filled with curiosity. With a smile on my face and happiness beginning to brim over, I played with my friends all the time because we had so much free time, as it were. I forgot my objective. I lost my way. I
