True Love is Shoe Love.

And actually I get little to no enjoyment shopping for shoes. which goes on the pro list of Arizona. I can wear flip flops year round. but really I have one pair of canvas shoes I wear and one pair of skate shoes that I wear… Not really a shoes girl. Clothes girl YES. Shoe girl. Meh. this weekend I did invest in a pair of boots but I don’t really know how to wear them. I just know they look cool when other people wear them… So aside from flip flops thats like 3 regular pairs of shoes. I don’t do flats, or wear heels any day but sunday…. And normally I like just low key shoes. but guys. I WANT THESE. and I don’t even know if I would have the guts to wear them but I think they’re rad.

More From China

 A Day at the Races
Ok so I just got back from the race. It actually wasn’t too bad. It was the 400 m relay so I only had to run 100m which was super easy. They let me choose which leg I ran so I choose 3rd because the crowd is mostly at the beginning and end of the race, but then when Maddie and I went over to that side of the field all the students just moved over there with us so apparnently it didn’t really matter which one I ran. I’m not sure who won as the winners were announced in Chinese, but I know my team was in 2nd when I passed the baton so atleast I didn’t totally embarrass myself. And even though I didn’t hear the results I’m pretty sure the team with the lunch ladies lost. It wasn’t really fair to have them run anyways. The gym teacher’s team won the boys race, but luckily there’s only one girl gym teacher so I didn’t have to race the P.E. department. Pays to be a girl.  I’m a little sad sports week is going to be over after today. I mean no classes, sports, and fireworks…. things don’t get better than that.
P.S. Zackapalooza still waiting on the picture of your snuggie. It’s cheetah print isn’t it

A Post From Sadie!!

The poor blog has suffered a lot lately. Unfortunatly it’s blocked here, and so if I want to get on it I have to use a Proxy Server and they are just a pain. Not even worth the trouble, but Kelli was telling me that Zackapaloza complained that we never post anymore. So I told her I would write something and email it to her for her to post up. So here are some things that have happened since I last posted.
  • I went to Beijing and saw tons of the cool sites, climbed the Great Wall, walked around the Forbidden City, etc. It was awesome. There’s tons to see in Beijing, and the Silk Market is really crazy.
  • I went shopping in Shanghai and got some great knock off stuff for pretty cheap
  • Went to a Hot Pot Restarurant. I’m not sure exactly how to explain this, but it’s kind of like a Fondue restaurant only different. You sit at this table that has this huge pot of soup on a little cooker thing and then you just order random ingredients and put it in the pot and then everyone just takes what they want using their chopsticks. It’s pretty fun, but Andy (the guy who took us, Andy is his english name I don’t know his Chinese name) ordered some interesting stuff…. I’m not really sure what half of it was. Most of it was really good, but at one point he really wanted me to try this one item, and I thought it might be octopus, but he informed me that it was a part of the cow that he couldn’t say in English…. I’d rather not know.
  • Went to Haungshan (Yellow Mountain) which was really pretty, and Maddie and I found out that we were slightly under prepared for it. We were thinking it was just like a hike… but then we got there and everyone had like those huge backpacking backpacks strapped on their backs and like walking sticks and stuff. It turned out to be fun though the part of the mountain we were on wasn’t too hard, and we really liked Huangshan city.
  • A few weeks back the Jazz lost to the Rockets. Everyone here loves this fact. They won’t let me forget it. The Jazz better shape up next time we play them.
  • Last week we were invited to go to another school and teach a class. I’d forgotten what it was like that first week of school…. but I remember now. Signing english books, photos, video cameras, mobs of children all over again.
  • This week is Sports week at our school, and tomorrow Maddie and I have been “invited” to be in one of the races… can’t wait…. we’re going to look totally foolish. Espeically since neither one of us packed gym clothes so we’ll have to run it in our jeans… should be fun.
P.S. I heard Real Salt Lake won the MSL against LA and Beckham…. what the heck?! I thought they were horrible…. I was under the impression that it was sort of miraculous if they won a game at all let alone made it to the championships. So when do they start filming for the feel good flick based on a true story of the underdog soccer team?

Tell them what they want to hear

My cousin, Is actually my moms cousin. but to make it less confusing I just refer to her as my cousin. To her I am the teenage daughter he’s always wanted while she waits for her 2 year old to grow up. Every day when I come home from school I have to sit down on the couch and tell her about my day. keep in mind I have one class every morning so there isn’t much to tell. and she doesn’t care about the girls i meet, only the boys. IDK why so I try now to talk to at least one boy every day so I can tell her that “I met and talked to this boy named _____ he seems pretty cool.”  usually I have to end up going into detail about what we talked about which is a shame because usually all I find out is their name, major and maybe where they are from and then maybe a question about class.

Today the boy I talked to was my cashier at walmart named Bryan, we talked about school and printers…. really how it went is he asked me what I was buying printer paper for and I said school.

So My cousin desperately wants me to be a socialite so before I came she told everybody she knew my age I was coming and has had a ton of people invite me over and all this stuff. So last night I was just sitting there watching shark week minding my own business when all of a sudden  she decided I shouldn’t be sitting around I should be dong something so she calls her’s husbands cousin to see what he’s doing. he says him and his friends are going swimming and he’ll come pick me up. I continue to watch sharks eat people and watch out the window for this boy. a truck plus up to the curb so I go out. I pull on the door and it’s locked, the person in the front seat isn’t someone i recognize but I just figure her cousin sent a friend.

” Hi I’m Kelli”
“Hi Kelli are you  waiting for someone?”
“Yeah aren’t you one of Jordans friends?”
“Nope sorry, I’m not your date..” (It wasn’t a date…)
“Oh well it was nice to meet you. Bye!”

And then I jump out of the car and run across the grass up the front step, and before the boy has finished pulling away I slip on the front porch cause the grass had been wet… he definitely saw me.

PS this boy name jason has taken to calling me Kelli Cat. WHY ME?!
