11.11.11 @11:11

So this post is a bit late, due to the inconsistent internet connection/VPN functionality here in China, but I wanted to share a funny moment my students and I had at 11:11am on 11.11.11. They were so excited to read the poem about Veterans that our school administration had prepared for us, and they wanted to capture the magical moment of 1111111111 on film. I think they thought a Genie was going to appear and grant them all three wishes or something!! For me, it was a special day for a good childhood friend of mine, as she turned 25 years old. We left her a happy birthday voicemail, and I hope she knows how much I miss her and would have been there in New York celebrating by her side if I was able to. Here's to you, Wagonwheel :).

A true friend doesn't care when you're broke, being a brat, what you weigh, if you don't see them for months, if your house is a mess, what you drive, about your past, or if your family is filled with crazy people. Your conversations pick up where they left off, even if they have been years apart. True friends love you for who you are.
