Okay, look. China is kicking my you-know-what right now. It’s spring break for me and this should be a joyous occasion. Right? Instead, it’s become a comedy of errors that was topped off by a blinding toothache last night.
Just to put it into a nutshell, it was a weekend of miscommunications, friends going through some major rough patches, air pollution so bad that I could drink it (burning eyes included), late buses, missed taxis, broken wallets, mean waitresses, ruined Chole (fake) sunglasses, shaky internet, rude children in a coffee house, and two bad mochas. And it’s only Monday.
It is also not helpful that I am really struggling to like it here. I have spoken with several people and they say this is perfectly normal. I mean, I was questioning if I even want to stay here next year.
I have to say though; things are looking up. The sky is blue today with white, puffy clouds. I just downloaded some new music and I think I might have perfected my toss for our bi-annual Cornhole tournament coming up in May. I also have an appointment to see the dentist this afternoon. And she speaks English. Bonus!
