Clara-Tianjin, China

Saturday May 22, 2010

It hasn’t really hit me that I leave the comfort of my home, including home cooked meals and my mom’s laundry service, in five days.  I’m very excited to finally be done with the semester and heading to China for the summer. Unfortunately, the excitement of heading out of the country hasn’t gotten me packed any faster, and I still have full boxes from my apartment stacked in my bedroom.  Though, I’ll be taking a full year’s worth of Chinese in the next three months, I’m going into the experience very relaxed and ready to learn.  The plane rides and traveling will be a journey in its self, and I can’t wait until I finally arrive in China and settle into my home for the summer.
