What A Long, Strange Winter It’s Been…

Hello, World.

I feel like I’ve shut you out for a while.

These last few months have been dark, cold, and difficult for a number of reasons and I haven’t been in the right headspace to say much.

I still don’t feel at home in China just yet and culture shock has been a daily reality.  The new job has proven itself to be quite stressful and time-consuming.  The pollution has been worse since the seasons changed.  The sun rarely shines here in winter.  You get the drift.

I’m holding out hope for the best, but I know the only thing that will help this season pass is time and patience.

That’s not to say it’s been all bad.  I am in a very cool Dungeons and Dragons campaign here, I’m sticking with my yoga class, and I got to see Disney on Ice (albeit in Chinese).  I’ve hired a tutor and am taking private lessons, though I can’t say I’ve fallen in love with the language just yet.

This is all just to say I’m still alive and weathering the storm.
