I am back.
I must thank several women who filled me with confidence about my blog; so here I am.
I still think blogging is hard, unrewarding and time-consuming. But, I'll try and make it worth yours and ultimately more important, my, time!
So, where do I stand now? Another year in China; my fuse is shorter, my temper - ragier, but overall, I think living here makes me a better person! It has to. Otherwise, what's the point? My spoken Chinese has improved from Mute to drunken frat-boy - with less swearing, but it's utterly useless in the grand scheme of expat Chinese ability. My apartment is still nice, and it becomes nicer with some delicate female touches. The cats are still alive! So things are still all good here in Zhong Guo.
Since my last blog, 10 months ago, I've been home, Seattle, South Korea and Hangzhou. Next week I take off to 'Nam, Cambodia and Malaysia for 3 weeks. My travelling itch gets a thorough scratching while I'm here!
Furthermore, I won a halloween costume contest. Daniella's family was here for Christmas - a lovely trip. I have a new role at school now - English Department Head! Fuck yea! Action figure soon to be released!
Shitty things? Ipod got stolen at school; recently replaced by a newer, flashier Ipod. Bike just got stolen a few days ago - must likely my fault! I don't like to lock my bike up! Lesson learned, genius? Yes! Lesson learned! Passport became invalid, and turned my life into a swirling vortex of shit - but it's sorted out now too. And my passport will forever be emblazoned with ISSUED IN: SHANGHAI Damn, that's worth it!
In other great news, my sister will be coming back for a bit I think. My mom will be coming as well. Tim is coming! That's rad! So, things are feichang fucking hao.
Lastly, this year I have watched: Boardwalk Empire; all the Glee (which is awesome, by the way) read the Harry Potter 1 - 4, and several other books and films. My life is very exciting!
Please come visit! Please!
My friends, while I miss you, Shanghai has become my home. And although I still dodge phlegm-bombs; vile, gangrenous odours, and daily traffic, I loves it here!
