August ending

I’m back in Beijing, finally un-jet-lagged, not unpacked. I’ve registered, gotten one set of orientation activities done with, met a good number of my classmates and a variety of other students at my university. I have a class schedule and a schedule for the next two weeks of orientation activities, which will change, of course. […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Last Post

So she’s home! And I’m late in posting this because we’ve been really busy since she’s been back getting everything ready and sorted for school which technically started today, though it was just simple registration today. Proper stuff begins tomorrow with a 3 day orientation, classes not until mid September or so. The point though […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 54 and 55

I’m late in posting today, or rather yesterday, so I’m posting both songs together because I don’t want to miss anymore days as Maria will be on her way back real soon. She’ll leave Saturday afternoon her time, which is middle of the night Saturday night my time, and I want to make sure she […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 53

So I had a job interview today with the ISB, International School of Beijing. It’s a real fancy place, and is where some fellow IFC people also work, specifically the lady with whom I’m working with the Youth Choir is. She’s head of the Performing Arts department apparently. But that means that since she’s there […]

Coming home

Coming home I have three days left in NYC. It’s been an awesome summer. Although I somehow (shockingly) failed to master the intricate arts of investment banking, I do understand a lot more than I did before. I also oriented myself in the city, met and reconnected with some great folks, and had some lovely […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 52

So today was an interesting and mostly tiring day. My sleeping schedule has been quite on the fritz, so I was up all night anyways, and this morning, as I was deciding to go to sleep and curled up snuggled tight under the blankets, I was pummeled by emails and cell phone calls. Granted, one […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 51

Boy I’m not feeling too well at the moment. I got up early this morning, fully intending to go get my health inspection done for my work visa. But as I stood on the side of the street under the surprisingly hot morning sun, waiting the 20 long minutes before I gave up on trying […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 50

Sometimes the coincidences surrounding my life are such so that I’m convinced people are out there deliberately trying to make things difficult. Of course, I’m obviously being paranoid, probably a symptom of my ever increasing hermit lifestyle, however, everything’s somewhat shifty at the moment. First, I have no idea where my SLC diploma is. It […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 49

Just 1 week left! Literally :) I’m feeling quite, lethargic, and drained of energy at the moment. I think some food might help. I might see about getting that. I biked once around 2nd Ring yesterday and managed to do it in less than an hour and a half! That’s actually a new record in […]

Maria in NYC Music Project – Day 48

Yet another day spent mostly running administrative errands. I got things rolling with my in country visa renewal next week. I’m gonna grab together as much of what I remember I need as possible and head on in with Jian-li around the middle of next week. That should give me plenty of time to get […]

Updating in Spurts

So I figured I’d update some information about what’s been going on. But seeing as I’m not sure all I want to say, and don’t quite feel like sitting on WordPress for a great length of time, I’m going to write this off line, update as I feel, and when it’s “done” (however I’d realize […]
