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.

Updating on the train

Huh, apparently I have 4 WordPress Plugins to update, plus a new Core version to upgrade to. Since I’m connected to the internet through my cell phone’s tether through my VPN in the States, I’m thinking I’m gonna hold off on any major internet work that’s actually important and meaningful until later.

The last week of rehearsals is always at the Children’s Palace (ShaoNianGong), right behind JingShan Park, less than 3km away from my apartment.

Brief Updates

Sick, Weather, IFC, Maria Runs, Updates
