Winter break has begun and I'm currently sitting in my room writing this entry WITHOUT wearing 2 layers of clothes. Being in T-shirts and shorts is a wonderful feeling. Trying to soak up Philippine warmth before I enter the Freezer with is Beijing.
I've been using my downtime meeting friends, editing my portfolio and going through a LOT of check-ups (doctor, derma, dentist, eye doctor, you name it I've probably went already). One of my main TTDs when I start my second term in Chinese Language is to get a freelance or part-time job in creatives. So hopefully my newly edited resume and portfolio would help me get a job (and extra money whoot!)
Other plans when I get back to Beijing (with a free month of February to spare!) is to travel to the southern parts (arguably where most of China's beautiful scenic spots are): Guilin, Hunnan, Fuzhou & Xiamen (the province of my ancestors). Also planning to celebrate Chinese New Year with my language partner and family (and am awkwardly invited to her cousin's wedding as well )
Best part is, one of my best friends is coming over on February to study Chinese Language for a year as well. Beijing's going to get more interesting for my 2nd term: Shanghai F1 Grand Prix on April, Amusement Park in GuangZhou, Art and National Museums (which I've never visited yet) and learning more Mandarin!
Looking forward for the next 5 months ahead!
