Re: I smiled because...

Two Chinese women came in to buy some items and when they approached me to make the purchase they started talking to me in Chinese. Although I may look Chinese, I don't speak it. When I said I didn't speak it both faces morphed into looks of disapproval and disbelief. One of the ladies did a double-take / Rove's What the ? look. When they left I smiled.

@FTP: That made me smile too! My auntie is Chinese too (but she doesn't speak any Chinese) and a similar thing happened to her when when she holidayed in Beijing last year. A few of the locals came up to her when she was out and started talking to her in Chinese and she apparently she got a lot of weird/ incredulous looks when she said she couldn't speak it!

I smiled because I read a lovely quote on Tumblr.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled becasue...
- K stole our teachers keys and the anics that followed were hilarious
- science last lesson where we ended up playing celeberatiy heads... our teacher ended up being his ferrit, a slug and many other random objects/things...
- the conversations I had with miss G today! And when she decided to hang out with us seniors at lunch because we were in a classroom
- my drama teacher gave me a lot of positive today which I really needed

@Dilz: It was pretty hilarious... He wasn't that confused actually..

(the fish with teh light above it's head, the one on fiding nemo that trys to eat dory and nemo's dad!)

I smiled because...
- My mentor gave me so many positives in today's meeting and the description she gave me of how I'd be when she see's me next fortnight - haha... (it was a bit over exaggerated and over the top..
- My English teacher gave me a lot of praise with my essay writting! She keeps telling me I'm getting better and better Smiley Happy Goal almost achieved for this term!
- Smiling because I've almost achieved one of this term's goals!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because in German today the teacher went to show us a German movie, thinking it was rated PG or something. Turns out it's rated R18+... I don't know how she got the ratings so mixed up

 

I also smiled because of the encouragement & positive feedback my psych gave me during my appt today.
