Beautiful Pine Tree

My professor who is from Taiwan, as a present to his wonderful students for surviving the semester, made each of us a card with our names written in Chinese calligraphy on them. And he pronounced our names in Chinese as he gave them to us (but don't ask me to repeat that one!). Turns out my last name in Chinese means "beautiful pine tree." Very cool.

Wow, that's so nice! We didn't have anything like that, but two professors did bring candy to class last term, and one gave us a pizza party. Nothing like that this term though. : (
