I’m signing up for Weibo (the Chinese version of Twitter)! It’s actually a part of my Chinese homework this weekend, and understandable so. Although I have the option of translating the website into English, I’ve opted not to and now I am just staring at the screen, trying figure out how I can “find my friends” (找我的朋友 zhāo wǒ de péngyǒu)…
In other news, I’ve been kind of stressed out because my Chinese language class is similar to my Chinese class at Cornell (intense) and it’s pretty fast paced. In addition to that, my parents sent me a package LAST MONDAY (it’s Thursday right now) and it hasn’t gotten to me yet because customs intercepted it! I’m not sure what the exact issue was but, long story short, I don’t have my stuff! The package contained a few articles of clothing, laundry detergent, body lotion and the likes. And although it may not seem like a big deal, not having things like body lotion is rally starting to take a toll on me (especially since most of the cosmetic products sold in China contain bleaching cream).
So, although I don’t have a choice in the matter, I would hope that the issue is resolved quickly and efficiently; I need a certain level of comfort in this foreign world!!!
