Day 16

Posted by 雯雯 at 9:39 PM
My third week here is well under way. Things are going as usual. I'm covered in bruises from all sorts of activity. Blocking kicks with Mr. Prepared, crashing into walls during football, climbing on the ground and so on. Also, there's a new guy in our class. Red Cross and I first greeted him in the queue for food, and he's pretty tall, almost as tall as Mr. Prepared. He also had an accompanying firm handshake which had me focusing so I wouldn't show my discomfort. That aside, he's very cheerful and nice, and gets along very well with Mr. Prepared and E. The other day when I went into Mr. Prepared and E's room to ask E something, I found the three of them pluss a gaggle of girls lying in the beds doing... well I'm not sure, nothing too risqué since the door was wide open, but still he fits right in. Folk high school, people.

In today's Chinese lesson, I got my own thing to do, mainly doing a past language exam. I didn't expect it, and it was very tiring, which is a good thing. The level of the test was probably right for me as well, not easy, but still doable. My brain was mush after though, so I didn't even want to think during the rest of the lesson.

I also got to do the warm-up for the martial arts training. It wasn't entirely prepared, but I think I managed fine. Everybody was pretty tired in the end, which must be a good sign. We did some pretty acrobatic moves in the lesson which I must admit I'm not good at. Give me choreography, just leave acrobatics out of it. Well I don't REALLY mind acrobatics, but I definitely need to work on them still! I hope I'll be able to do them by the end of the year.

On an unrelated note, most of the school seems to have caught a cold. Me included, though I'm deep in denial. So long as I can drag myself out of bed to practise, I'm not sick.
