12 days until China

Posted by 雯雯 at 4:50 PM
Time sure flies! Only 12 days remain until we leave for China.
Since last time, we finished our group project. I did end up playing in the band, which was cool and fun. I was quite tired at the end of it though, and was very happy to get a week's holiday.

I'm back now though, and we've resumed regular lessons. In Chinese, we are preparing for going to China by practising loads of useful sentences and situations. I made sure to study during the break too, so I feel if anything my Chinese had improved over the break, but not everyone had. One thing I didn't do enough of though was exercise, which I noticed quite well when we had our first taolu lesson after the break. After 2 minutes of warming up, my heart was racing and I was dead tired. Even though we were playing tag, I didn't really run more than I needed too. Luckily, it seemed like most everyone else was in the same situation as me. In taolu we are currently, and since before the break, been practising with staves. It's quite fun, even if I still hit myself occasionally. It's all worth it though, especially when I manage to swing the staff around with a big swoosh noise!

I'm trying hard to keep on top of all the things I need to do, but it makes me pretty tired. I've taken to having midday naps after dinner because I'm so sleepy and tired after the day is done. I hope I get an opportunity to rest well this weekend!
