Snowy Storm Leaves Northeast Of America Dazed

Snow Storm

It’s 3:30 and there is a snow storm outside. I still have an hour and half of classes to teach. Today, it took me over an hour to get from one class to the other. I’m thinking about cancelling that class, it’s just too far.

I got up at 6:45AM and my mind was in a jumble. I went to bed too late. It took some chocolate and a coffee to really wake me up. It’ funny because when you speak many languages, when you are tired, you mix up words in ALL languages.

I got my hair cut on Tuesday at Aquarium on St-Jean Street. It was surprisingly cheap, exactly $21. It took about 27 minutes. However, you don’t get the full on experience as in Taiwan. The last time I went to get my hair cut, it took about 90 minutes and cost $15. I got a 10 minute back massage, 15 minute hair massage and the girl scultped away at my hair for over an hour. It was pretty cool.

Then again, I managed to talk with Caroline, the stylist at Aquarium. Something that I just couldn’t do in Taiwan.
