Goodbye October

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAs 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.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAMy 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!


  1. I love the costumes! I can’t believe it’s almost November, too. Time is flying by so fast this year.

    Going to sleep by 11 sounds like a very good goal, but it will be hard to keep!

    Thank goodness for weekends, otherwise I feel like no one would ever get any sleep!

  2. Nancy!!!!! Wow–Singapore! I can’t wait to catch up on your blog and see what you’ve been doing and how your teaching is going!! I just happened to click on the Children’s Lit page that I had bookmarked, and came across the current page which has the link to your blog…I’d love to get back in touch and hear what you’ve been up to.
