I’m sitting here, it’s 11:18pm on Monday. I helped move a friend into a new place. It’s pretty awesome. But more importantly I am watching something like American Idol but with karaoke, in Chinese. I don’t understand 90 percent but what I do understand is well, maybe I shouldn’t say. I will be watching much more of this. So Friday I head down to the south of China for a vacation or a permanent move, providing I can find a job. I’ve been looking but it seems here in China everyone is daydreaming. What do I mean, well, they want a creative person with 10 yrs experience, speaks, reads, and writes English and Mandarin, along with knowing everything about everything. No, I’m not kidding. This is pretty much every ad I have seen online. I suppose I should go ahead and let it rip anyway. Oh, I just passed a Steven Seagul movie dubbed in Chinese. That’s single handedly made my year. Glorious.
The other day I got another chance to head out, go to dinner, and walk around with a friend. It was a good time. So here are some photos.
Hi mom, Hi dad.
Most of these photos, actually all these photo were taken at a massive city square. It’s a pretty neat place. This was a Monday night. Loaded with people. Just think I was the only white guy there. I don’t know what that means but it makes me feel special. On weekends this baby is like Cedar Point times ten or seventeen.
On a side note, I can actually hold up a conversation in Chinese. Providing it has to do with a picture of a guy model, why he’s my younger brother, he is handsome because he is my younger brother, and my parents are really happy, so that’s why girls like me. Don’t ask how I know to say most of this but, you never know when you might have to bust this one out someday.
On another side note. I had a bad habit. I have bitten my nails for um, lets just say a long time. But coming here to China, listening to a friend and having him remind me of what my grandma always said, I have come to the conclusion that China is dirty. Putting dirty things in your mouth is bad. Touching all kinds of junk here in China makes your hands dirty, thus sticking them in your mouth is not that awesome. So I quit. It’s been kinda hard. But whatever. One has to do what they can. Me, I just remember what finger nails are for, scratching man itches, and that puts my mind to rest.
