It's 7:54 pm and I am seriously contemplating an 8:00 pm bedtime. Don't judge.
Anyway, it's been a fun couple of days, but I don't have enough creative energy at the moment to make them come alive for you, so I thought I'd give you a mini-update -- an "updatito," if you will.
The weekend didn't exist, because I had class. That was OK, because we had three days off last week.
Yesterday I had a Chinese lesson in the morning, taught a sophomore oral class in the afternoon, had a group of students over to bake cookies, and had my book club in the evening. We're reading Anne of Green Gables -- awesome.
This morning I taught a couple writing classes, had team stuff in the afternoon, and then had dinner with a few sophomores. But actually, I had dinner with my team, too, so I supped at 5:00 and then 6:00. Actually, if you count gorging myself with leftover cookies at our team meeting, I ate non-stop from 3:30 to 7:00. Hmm.
Tomorrow begins my week-long holiday. First I will go to Chongqing, then to Xi'an. They are both new cities for me, and I am looking forward to meeting up with friends in both places. Traveling in China over the holidays is always an adventure. (An adventure full of crowds of people.)
