Firstly I would like to say sorry for not updating my blog as often as I usually do! I have been busy with school and I actually don't have much time to spare during the week.
School was good! Last week was better than the first and I hope it continues to get better week by week. I have made good friends and everyone is all so nice! Though one thing I've noticed is that the boys here are a lot more shy than in the US! My teacher told me I should learn 20 characters per night...thats a lot of words but I think I have to because at the end of the year I have to take an HSK test! (Which is a placement test to see my level and understanding in Chinese).
So this weekend is a three-day weekend! Because on September 12th it is Mid-Autumn Festival (sometimes also called Mooncake festival or lantern festival). The Mid-Autumn festival has been a tradition for over 3,000 years. This is one of the most important events for Chinese people throughout the year. Its when families gather together and stay up late while eating mooncakes!
We ended up going home around 9:30 and I was so tired by the end of the day. We took the 33 to get home and right when we got on the bus, Ruby (Hawk's host mother) spotted me and we started talking for a bit, then she mentioned Hawk was sitting in the back of the bus so I squeezed my way through all the people on the bus and went over to talk to him! It was funny how both of us were on the bus at the same time! Once we started talking the whole bus, literally was looking at us because we were talking english to each other! lol. Hawk and I decided to hangout on Sunday so I'll be seeing him later on :) I'll write about our day later!
