Today, Tommy and I taught the Better class at the preschool today! This class had five year olds and they truly enjoyed Tommy’s lesson plan. They loved making their “all about me” books! After making their books, a few students presented their books to the class and we took a class photo! After teaching today, I talked to a few other students and we decided that we all needed to decompress after teaching and a long weekend. We decided to go get our nails done near the SWUST campus. We walked outside of the campus to try and find a nail place. We walked in circles for about twenty minutes before finding a few different nail places that could do gel nails for us. We were impressed to find gel nails for 49 Yuan - an equivalent of 7 US dollars! We split into smaller groups and this was great because as a cohort we are not often able to have alone time or have one-on-one time with other students. This was a great bonding and relaxing time for us as well. We all needed this time for self-care and to have a calm moment especially after the chaos of teaching. While we were waiting for a couple other classmates to finish their nails, we went shopping around at the local shops. I love looking at the different trends in Chinese fashion. We noticed that a popular trend is wearing t-shirts under tank tops and tank top dresses. Another trend we have seen in men’s, women’s, and children’s fashion is Peppa Pig. Peppa Pig is a children’s cartoon character and it is all over men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing! We all found this trend funny and fascinating as Americans since Peppa Pig is mainly on children’s clothing in the US. After coming back from teaching, getting our nails done, and shopping I decided that I needed to take more alone time and self care. I did yoga for about an hour and meditated to ground myself. This trip has helped me recognize when I need to take more time to myself on the days we have free time. I loved having nearly a full day to just chill out and relax in between teaching!
