Teaching in China: The gauntlet

3274 Views | 7 Comments | 0 Articles | 8/15/2013 5:14:46 PM
Teaching in China has been the single most rewarding thing I’ve ever done with my life, and even though there are more than a few headaches that come with this job. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The job gives me more freedom than I’ve ever had with any other job and the ability to be such a positive influence in my kid’s lives is just the icing on the cake. I only wish there were more teachers who took the job more seriously, but as I’ve said before this job isn’t for everyone. Read more…

Why Are You Here?

I’ve been thinking about my last article, and about how I berated the guys who came here for fun and games. Perhaps I was a little hard on them. We all have our own reasons for coming to China, and leaving behind what we had back home. From economic reasons to personal or even a combination of the two, sometimes we come because we are searching for that beautiful Chinese woman that will complete us. I know my experience with Western women that definitely played a big role for me leaving my world behind. Read more…

Observations of a Gui Lao: China Haters in China.

5488 Views | 11 Comments | 0 Articles | 7/2/2013 5:41:11 PM
I’ve been bombarded for the past few months at work with one of my pet peeves here in China, and it’s not the Chinese that seem to drive me to insanity these days. Its disrespectful foreigners, who complain about China being terrible. I’m pretty content with knowing I’m in another country and that culture differences will come up from time to time. I accept that because before I even came to China I looked at the culture and studied as much as I could before I stepped foot in this country. I didn’t want to come off as another one of the jerks from America that the rest of the world hates. Read more…

There and Back Again Part III: Can't Save 'em All.

2585 Views | 4 Comments | 0 Articles | 6/27/2013 2:09:08 PM
If you’ve been following my story so far of my return to America to see my friends and family, you’ve probably got a pretty grim picture of what I encountered when I was there. It is true that there were some terrible things that I went up against, from willful ignorance to the food not being edible; however, it was not all bad. My friends and I shared some great times at our local drinking hole, and I was able to make up for the bad food with cooking myself on the grill like old times. Although, the good didn’t erase the horror I felt inside for my friends and what was left of what I called home. Read more…

There and Back Again part II: Food fight!

2580 Views | 3 Comments | 0 Articles | 5/27/2013 4:20:29 PM
As I mentioned in my previous article my first week back in America didn’t go quite as expected. The town that had been my home for nearly ten years had seen better days. It wasn’t as bad as some towns I’m sure but to me it was an extremely depressing sight to see. In my head I envisioned my return home being a triumphant return. I would share my success with my friends and they would share their own success stories over their own adversity. It turns out my first week would be a clumsy attempt at me to readjust in my own culture. Read more…

There and Back Again part 1: The Return

2749 Views | 2 Comments | 0 Articles | 5/15/2013 3:14:07 PM
Last September I decided to travel back home to visit my family in America. Home sickness was wearing on me and I knew it was time to get some air from life in China. I wasn’t tired of China nor had China lost its shine in my eyes, but if there is one thing I’ve learned about living here is that eventually you have to take a holiday from your day to day life, just like you would no matter where you live. I’d been here for two years and it was time to get back and see my friends and family who I knew missed me a lot. Read more…

A Dream Within a Dream

I’d like to thank CLM from the bottom of my heart for being exactly what it’s advertised as, a great place for western men to meet and fall in love with the Chinese women of their dreams. I met Windy on CLM in May of 2010. We hit it off immediately and found we shared a lot in common. It was great to talk to someone who was so honest. I had already decided to move to China to teach English for a year and Windy gave me a lot of encouragement when I hit obstacles along the way in getting my paperwork done in the states. Read more…

Canton Fair and The Horrors That Follow

The dreaded Canton Fair just ended here in Guangzhou, and good riddance for a few months until the next one rolls around in October. For those of you who haven’t heard of Canton Fair. It’s an import and export convention that brings people from all over the world to Guangzhou looking for Chinese products to import from China or to find buyers in China for their own products. Needless to say it turns Guangzhou into hell on earth twice a year. The Canton fair runs from about April to the beginning of May in the spring and from October to November in the fall. Read more…

I only had to wait 7 days to get my work visa after the long process of getting the paperwork together. My passport and papers only spent a few hours at the Chinese consulate, which means it spent more time in transit back and forth than it took for the Chinese government to look at it and give me my work visa page. Ironic when you think about how long things take when you deal with the U.S. government. I’d almost go as far as to say the government here is much more efficient than the U.S. but I’m sure I just haven’t run into the horror stories that others have encountered here. Read more…

All About The Letter Z

When I left off I had just returned from Hong Kong and nearly didn’t make it back because of a “passport malfunction” aka washed twice in the wash. I decided that it was time to get serious about getting my paperwork straight just so I didn’t have to go to Hong Kong so much because once in a while is ok but when you have to go all the time, it gets old fast. So I put in all my paperwork and prayed for the best, because I had been advised by many foreigners online and in person in China that it would be a long shot for me to get my work visa. Read more…
