后舍男生 Two Chinese Boys

Rediscovered my appreciation for China dorm life. It’s been over 5.5 yrs since I returned from China, but the images of my students’ dorms: 8-10 person occupancy in a room much the size of a small single in the U.S., have never left me. I dont know how they do it, but they are amazing. I still remember running into my students in their track suits as they were returning from their morning exercises. The campus bullhorns blared with the signal to arise at 6am with an encouraging, albeit annoying, blast of “一二三四五六七八!” repeated over and over til the exercises were done. And woe to them if they even thought about skipping out. Laura’s sophomore class decided to boycott and a wk later received in them the due penalty for their rebellion – a mandatory 2-hr run in the rain. Sore throats and head colds were the icing on their humble pie. I miss my students…

  1. Hey hey hey!

    Jasmine, thanks so much for taking time out of your Saturday night to come and spend hours and hours standing around in a stinky, badly lit bar to talk and talk and meet my new fiance!

    I had a ball hanging out with you and catching up and seeing all the amazing ways God’s always using you to do such amazing things.

    If anything, I wish I was in NYC longer so I could do some more hanging with JFlo to get the big and bigger scoops on your life. Ahh, I’ll just always assume you’re crazy busy, reading a mile a minute, and changing lives wherever you go.

    Thanks for coming out and being so cool, Jasmine.

    Teddy
