How cold is it? We finally are staying above 40F here. Loving it!
It's been the lower 40 that cold with the wind for Alabama this time of year

Keep in mind I am currently working in Yinchuan, China (its kinda in the north centeral part of china surrounded by desert)

The owner of the school, the manager and co manager sprang a meeting on us, to inform everyone that one of the foreign teachers had died.
He was perfectly healthy when I saw him for dinner on sunday, he got sick on monday and was dead on Thrusday. He was there with his wife and they are British Citizens. They do not know or will not tell us the cause of death. All they said was He is dead and not to talk about it.

All we know is - I saw him Sunday night when I met up with another american friend for dinner. He said found a place to practice playing the drums and thats what he did the next day. I sent a message to Fran asking if she wanted to met up for dinner on wednesday.She said No because Dan had gotten heat stroke and was throwing up. I seen fran at the weekly workshop meeting on Thrusday and I asked if the horrible pollution had anthing to do with dan being sick because the Aqi was over 700 (usually the air in Yinchuan is pretty good, but every now and then we get HORRIBLE pollution from other parts of China/India). Next day they inform us he has died.

He was a young man - maybe 30 yrs old max? This has kinda freaked me out a bit and kinda makes me realize that life is very unpredictible.

He did mention that he was a diabetic and I THINK that may of had something to do with his death. I don't think he caught something contagious otherwise his wife and the others at his school would of also gotten sick.

I was going to ask if he was diabetic. He could have died from complications from that if he wasn’t taking care of himself, or if he took too big of an insulin dose. Diabetics generally have a weaker immune system too, so he could have caught something foreign he wasn’t used to.

Still seems strange that they haven’t said how he died. Maybe they’re still trying to figure it out?

Firstly, I’m sorry to hear of the passing of your friend and colleague.

Maybe his family is waiting on an autopsy report to confirm why he passed so suddenly and that’s why there’s still so much mystery surrounding it? The diabetic thing sounds like a possibility....but it is very much a reminder of how short life is.

I had a job interview today! It felt great but I did not get a call back in the time frame they said they would. So I'll wait this week out or possibly call tomorrow, but they always say don't bug them unless they call me

Other than that I decided on a online store platform to actually sell on. It only charges 2.9% for them to push my sales in their market place and it looks like I only get charged that percent if stuff sells!!!!
NO OTHER FEES.

I've been staying away from selling on ebay, etsy and Mercari cause I don't like their conditions.

So, I usually browse on my phone - today I left it in my room and I’m currently too lazy to grab it. It’s weird being on here from my iPad, totally forgot that you can have signatures here. Lol....

I am less than two weeks away from summer break! I really am not looking forward to catching up on some of my homework, though.
Good luck on the hunt, Mana. :satisfied:
I also recorded a video yesterday. I want to get my toes wet with the ponytube stuff because I think it's a good way to document things. I need a tripod fairly badly.

Still no news on the cause of death. Honestly, I don't think they are going to tell us. All I know is he got sick and though it was heat stroke, then he said he was throwing up and next thing we knew..he was gone. I don't even know if his wife is still in China or if she went back to the UK.

He lived here for over 5 years, transfered 6 months ago to the school in Vietnam and returned in March because they hated the school in 'nam.

That’s so terrible. I’m so sorry. <sending pony hugs> I’ve actually been thinking about this story a lot as I’ve been on the job hunt again. I don’t know why but for some reason it’s really stuck with me. Since reading about it I have to say, I’ve been making a conscious effort to show my loved ones that I care and check in a little more than I used to.
