I'm pulling double duty for the next two weeks, and teaching for two program. I've been teaching for my gifted and talented high school students for the past four weeks, but now I'm also teaching for a program for Chinese high school students. I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off for the past few days, but I'm loving the experience of teaching courses that are new to me. It also means that I'm putting in 12+ hours days between teaching, transportation, logistics and lesson planning.
In the meantime, my stepfather was bitten by an alligator this weekend, so there's that.

A few weeks ago I headed up to Philadelphia to join my boyfriend for a special event-a pop up restaurant by Stephen Starr at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The restaurant is tiny-just a few communal tables and a bar just big enough to fit one bartender. It was perfect. The highlight of the menu is the Lobster Claw Bloody Mary. It was spicy, cool and delicious. Considering that my boyfriend and I got horrifically lost trying to find the place (we ended up 12 miles away!), the drink was a great balance to the sweltering heat we'd been wandering around in. I ordered a lobster roll BLT to go with my drink, and it was perfection. There was more lobster than I could imagine on the sandwich, and the bread was buttery perfection. We're already planning a trip back.
