Week 14, Wednesday: May 12

Schedule for today

3-4 PM: Get Stuff Done Club: drop by with any questions you have, or just to say hi to me or other students in my courses. This is the equivalent of office hours/drop-in tutorials, your exclusive access to me. No appointment needed. Breakout rooms available, including quiet study space!

  • Pitch your fifth and final Show and Tell project in the Google chat room: let me help you shape it into a project that will sparkle and lets your knowledge of modern China SHINE!
  • Catch up on the materials for tomorrow, then we can discuss anything you like in the zoom session, and you can write about what catches your attention most in your blog post. As always all the details are on the webpage for week 14.
  • Remember that you can ask questions in multiple locations: post on the TypePad, post in the Google chat room, or bring them to the Zoom on Thursday.
  • If you want quiet writing time and some company, I'll be in the Zoom room 9.00am-11.00am. I will be sitting down with my project anyway. Save up questions and queries for the GSD Club in the afternoon or on Thursday, or via email.

Cute stuff

In case you need some cute stuff: for those of you who've seen my "Shoulder Support Seal" (who helped with the transition to sleeping on my side following surgery), Arare/Arale has had a little pup! The aquarium staff had to step in as the little one was too weak, so he's being hand reared now. And he's getting swimming lessons, because seals need to swim! Disregard the Japanese and just enjoy the cute videos and pictures on this account 😍 If you can't get enough of Arale, you have to follow this account on Instagram.
