Top 5 excuses our Thai student gives us to try and skip school.

1. Last week he doesn't get up. I knock on the door and ask, "Aren't you going to school?" He replies with "my arm hurts."

2. "My Stomach hurts."

3. Two days ago I get an email that he has skipped 3 blocks. When I confront him about it, he tells me that he went to a drugstore to buy medicine for his stomach, and that's why he skipped 3 blocks.

4. Yesterday he proceeds to tell Sara-Lynn and I that he often misses school because of his stomach aches and then proceeds to tell us that he has a hole in his stomach. To which I respond, that's called an ulcer and you need to get medical attention immediately. He then tells us that it's not that bad.

5. This morning he is late again, I ask if he's going to school. He responds with, "I poo a lot this morning."

Why do I get the feeling this kid is going to be a problem for us?

Top 5 favorite spots in NYC

There is way too much to do in NYC. But if you go, check out some of the places I enjoyed the most. Who knows, you may enjoy them too! This list is in no particular order.

1. Williamsburg, Brooklyn - This is Hipster central. But if you're looking for good coffee, good food all at a good price, then check it out. Also, Williamsburg has a lot of great shows in the evening. Totally worth checking out. Favorite spot to eat? Definitely check out: egg
- Here's what I ordered: 2 cup French Press, Carmelized Grapefruit with mint, and Duck hash.

2. SOHO - If you're in NYC to do some serious shopping, soho is the place to be. Kind of expensive, but still tons of fun.

3. Arturo's Coal Oven Pizza - They have a bathtub in their washroom! Where in NYC can you have coal oven pizza and enjoy a soothing bath afterwards? The food is excellent, and they have live jazz every night. It's a really busy place, and really crowded. But totally worth checking out.

4. Chelsea Market - it's kind of like the NYC version of Pikes Place market. Go and find the Ninja Turtle cupcake and buy it for me.

5. Radio City Music Hall - If you happen to be in New York, and there's a concert worth checking out at this venue, I highly recommend you do! It was like being inside the orpheum times 3!!!! Watching Brooklyn's Tv on the Radio was quite entertaining. Personally I think a Wilco show, or a Sigur Ros show would be phenomenal!
