Once a month at my school, we celebrate with a birthday party. We eat kimbop, mandu and cake. The kids even get to indulge with a bit of orange juice. It’s awesome. Even though it cuts into my two hour+ lunch break, I’m okay with it. Because I get to eat cake. Yum.

House and cars on a San Francisco street

The photographer angled his camera so the cars appear level.  I have been working on a way to do this around the university – a way to show how steep and San Francisco-ish the neighborhood about the university is.  Image from flickr where a variety of sizes can be found.

I cannot get this boy to stop crying! Everything sets him off. On this day, he started crying because I didn’t choose him to read second in class. What a tough life he lives.
