Summer fun

Hello everyone. I was just curious what the rest of you do for fun during the summer. Being a teacher definitely has it's advantages (pay over the summer not being one!) Anyway if the weather is nice I am on the water somewhere! soaking up the sun or skiing till I can't hold the rope <g>.

Hey Scott: I am a teacher with a two weeks to go until nine weeks off.
I will write and play and get myself into trouble. I am going to listen to music, go to live theatre, a Yes concert, ride my bike and hang out with my best friend Robert. Welcome.

<hr>I always keep my promises, she said
      Except when I don’t
And I promise to love you forever

Fortunately, I understood exactly

Darn. I knew I should have grown up to be a teacher. The thing I resented most about being made to grow up was the loss of taking the summer off. Sigh.

As for what I shall do for fun this summer.... <ul><li>Bike Riding (lots) </li><li>Writing (poetry and fiction) </li><li>Picnics with friends </li> <li>Free Concerts, every Thursday evening, at the park across the street </li> <li> Walks to Swensen's for a dish of chocolate ice cream </li> <li>Sitting outside the coffee shop next door with friends, sipping on a mocha, engaging in "people watching", and discussing solutions to all the world's problems, even maybe my own too </li> </ul>

I hope I were a teacher so that I can have a summer holiday. But I 'm not. In july I will have a chance to go to have a meeting in a seaside city.(the city i live in is far from sea) so i will enjoy the summer ocean.

and we have many night-market(? i wonder if i can name it like this).many people sell all kinds of things from clothes, cosmetic to toy, decorations..and food. people will go out to have a walk and ramble around the stall after whole day's work.

I like writing too! but it's in chinese.I hope I can write things in English and show you here.

What do you write, Walker? Would we think of it as poetry? Stories?

Do children get the summer off from school where you live?

I have never seen anything here like your night-market. It sounds delightful.

HI Robert,
I should say I write stories,essays,no poetry recently..could you tell me I want to be a fluent English writer, what should I do? :)and we hold a Literature Competetion on net these days. we need things in chinese and english . if you have interest, maybe you can choose your works to that.<img src=pix/icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

and children get a summer holiday in mid-July and Aug,they will come back to school in Sep. sO it's really a happy time for children. also for teacher..but for me,,my boss can not put up with my relaxing.but every summer he'll organize colleagues to have a trip for 2-3days.:(

oh?you have not such night-market?I heard you have a kind of flea market? how's that operating?

Hi Walker,

We have flea markets, yes. And where I live there is what we call a farmer's market every Sunday. The main difference between a flea market and a farmer's market is that the flea market will have more Things and less fresh food, and the farmer's market will have more food and fewer Things.

I like that your boss organizes 2-3 day trips! We do not do anything like that. Do you have vacation time of some sort, where you can take time off for several days just to go do whatever you wish? Here it is pretty normal for workers to have 10 days of vacation time per year. In Europe it is more like 25 days.

If any of what I have posted under Inkwell looks appropriate for entering into your Literature Competition, please let me know! I would be honored to participate.

sorry, Robert. I write back a little later.these days i'm busy preparing an exhibition on E-business.now it's over.so i come back to AH to enjoy talking with friends. I'm glad to hear u are willing to participate the competition.I will have a good look at your works in inkwell and let you know soon..

we now have three 7-days holidays everyyear,that's in May and Oct .another one is spring festival(the most important festival in china)..and some company will give employee vacation like yours maybe 1-2 weeks per year and employee themselves may choose when to take it. and there is a new policy government are going to implement is the vacation policy everyyear.maybe we 'll have that soon,.
