T.G.I.F. Versus T.A.I.W.

The buses start loading up pretty early on Wednesday afternoons as drivers prepare to take students to their respective villages across Oman. Wednesday classes finish at 2pm as it is the end of the work week here (Sat-Wed) and their weekend is Thursday and Friday. So, while we would say, “Thank God It’s Friday“, I guess they would say “Thank allah It’s Wednesday“.

My students convinced me to sit down and hang out with them a while over a cup of juice before they all took off for the weekend. All FY students, across campus, have “plotted together” and decided not to come to class next week as it’s the last week before exams start and they feel that they deserve a break…The end of the semester is almost here!
