I’ve been wanting to get blogging, but never got around to it.
Now that I feel, “settled-in” theres been some free -FINALLY- on my hands. 2 weeks back at home (San Fransisco, California), cycles through fairly quickly. While in Beijing, there are so many things to absorb, these two weeks felt like 2 months. The weird thing is, I am finally getting comfortable. Just a little bit ago, I was already ready to go home. Beijing beat me. I felt tired, frustrated and sweaty. (This humidity/air is something to get used to.) But on the bright side, today was the first day that I felt acclimated, to all aspects of Beijing.
Interning with bilinguals helps me pick up really quickly. When I couple this with Chinese lessons every other day, I feel like im really making progress! I can order food with confidence and go around not looking/feeling like a total dumbo. Im not going to lie, I still tell locals that I am Japanese (Na guo ren), hahaha.
