My parents are coming to Taiwan again this Chinese New Year for vacation and family togetherness. For that reason I’ll be on hiatus for 3-4 weeks. During that time I hope to post 1-2 articles. They’ll appear at random times.
If you’re missing your weekly dose of saltiness may I suggest reading: Sperm Donation and the White Guy (my best writing); Low-Context Dude (the cultural linguistic explanation for why Chinese is a real mother to learn); Marrying Taiwanese (the process I went through to get engaged); ESL Professionalization (some of the changes I’ve seen in the ESL profession); or, just follow your nose through the back catalog. There’s a lot of good stuff there.
Thank you for reading over the last year. May the Year of the Pig bring you health, prosperity, and good fortune. Happy New Year.
