I'm so proud of my students. Everyone is blogging really hard right now. Phew. I think we had kind of a shakey start this semester. However, I hope from now on that everyone is going to blog a lot. I guess the reason we had a shakey start this semester is that I totally left it up to the students to start their blogs. I guess I'm trying to test their "independent" learning skills. Actually, most of the students were able to do it no problem . . . but with others it took a little prompting :-)

Anyway, now everyone is blogging!

Hmmmmm . . . I wonder if anyone wants to come to my office hours today. You see, somebody threw a rock through my back window at my house. Can you believe it? I didn't even wake up when it happened. It happened last Saturday night, and when I woke up on Sunday morning, there was glass all over my back room. I couldn't believe it. It is a pretty big window too - about 4 feet by 4 feet so it is going to cost me around $500 to get it fixed. I'm so annoyed because it is not like I am a rich person living in a rich person's house. Not that I'm advocating throwing rocks through the windows of rich people, but at least they could afford to get their windows fixed. Ah well, I guess I'll have to eat less Swiss Chalet take out chicken this week. I even called the police, but there was nothing they could do to help me because they said it is basically impossible to catch the people who through the rock through my window. They did ask if I had any enemies . . . I wonder which student might be mad at me!

I have written my first blog in loving the life in calgary but when I read your blog I changed my mind it's not safe I'm afraid that any one will break my window. But I am the first one to comment on your blog to ensure I'm not a suspect for doing that. Have a nice long weekend!

How can you suspect any of your nice students? You keep us way too busy studying and writing anyway! Now I really wonder how Swiss Chalet take out chicken tastes like!

It might be someone who was really boring did it. This kind of damage happened to my friend, but it was his car's lighting been smashed actually. There were several cars' lighting being destroyed- include apartment manager's car.

Oh my God, I could not believe that somebody threw rock to a nice person's window. I think you will be luck in the future because bad thing happened.
