Furniture has been built

So it’s been a couple of weeks since we made our big purchase at Ikea Brooklyn. They delivered everything, which was actually a great deal considering how much we had (apparently over 1000lbs or so says the shipping label heh) and that if they had to, they would have walked things up the stairs, all […]

2nd Post of 2011

Yes, I know, it’s almost the end of the first MONTH but I’ve been busy. The majority of that time was spent interviewing with companies for a job. I signed up with a tech recruiting agency, two of them actually, though in reality, one still. It’s weird. I ran into something like this before back […]

First post of 2011

Let’s see, what was written last? So it’s obviously been a while since I’ve posted, and a lot of things have happened since, hence the been a while since I’ve last posted. I mean, that was half way around the world ago, and last year. As I write, it is the middle of the night […]

Countdown once again – 4 Days

It’s that time of year again, or rather that time of the year and a half. We are counting down the days until we leave. I guess we hadn’t formally announced any such things yet, and though the rest of the inter-webs know already, the blog is sadly still officially ignorant of certain important matters. […]

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 […]

The Psychologies of Blogging

…or “why I suck at it.” So it’s quite late, and I’ve been tossing and turning in bed for a good while now. The issue is that I’ve been all of a sudden sick again, and it’s not been that great of an experience. I really do believe it’s due to the sudden changes in […]

Some forward momentum

So there’s been some progress, as can be noted by my and our general absence from this blog. First, my IFC (International Festival Chorus) Messiah concert has been postponed until the 19th of December. Apparently they’ve been having more and more problems getting government approval to perform Handel’s Messiah in a public venue, and it […]

Sick, Weather, IFC, Maria Runs, Updates

(Sick) So I’m sick, and have been for a few days. And I realize now that a good many of my blog posts begins with the word “So.” I wonder why that is…But I think it’s the weather. (Weather) It was like this when I was in New York; as the seasons noticeably change, I […]

A Minor Rant, and Everything’s Good

I’ve come to realize that this whole “pay as you go” schtick might be getting a little out of hand, especially in China. I’m prepaying my cell phone, my internet, my electric bill, my gas bill, my metro card, and if I want satellite TV, I’ll be prepaying that too. As Maria put it, it’s […]

Apartamento!

We moved in. I am so happy. We are lacking a few near-essentials, and short on others, and I don’t yet know an easy way to get some of this stuff (do I really have to walk for miles to buy toilet paper?) but I have a water-boiling pot, a supply of tea, a shower […]
