As another month wraps up, I can’t help but wonder, “Where in the world did October go?” I’m fairly certain I’ll feel the same way when the last day of 2010 approaches, at the end of our first year here, and (no doubt) when my two-year Singapore commitment runs out.
Highlights of this month include: a blissful four days in Bali (see previous post), weekend ventures around Singapore (including this afternoon’s prowl around Chinatown), Singapore American School events (most notable was last week’s high school musical production of “Grease” — remarkably talented cast, including a surprise appearance by Tim Stuart, the HS principal singing “Teen Angel”), parent-teacher conferences, and 8th graders’ Halloween costumes.
My commitment to get more sleep means I now try to turn out the light by midnight. I need to make a new resolution for November (light’s out by 11 p.m.?) because the only time I meet this goal is on Friday nights when I’m so exhausted, I can barely keep my eyes open on my MRT ride home from school.
So, in an effort to end October in style — and before midnight turns into November, I’ll blog-out “early” with more “voices” of my 8th graders in their assorted Halloween garb. Enjoy!
