25.10.2010 - 31.10.2010
Not too much went on this week. Midterms are looming in the distant future, but everything else is pretty ho hum. After calming down from my Western Union escapades, I started snack shopping for my dad so I have stuff to send back. The Lotus Center was having a sale on all these dishes :O I decided to make a separate trip for the dishes since they were kind of heavy (don't know why China likes their dishes so thick *that's what she said*).
Taiji is going well. I need to limber up a bit more. Fie on me for not keeping up with Yoga, haha.
I'm continuing my ab workouts at this point. I don't want to be ripped (those look kind of scary, with all due respect). It's just...I'm a jogger, so my legs are in good condition, but I have almost no mid and upper body strength. I'd like to be "evened out", if you will.
ANYWHO, this blog isn't about exercise routines. Back to China...
Halloween...I don't even remember what happened or what I did. Being a college kid, I realize holidays will occur whether I celebrate (or remember) them.
Aw man, I suck. I can't remember anything. Other than some light food shopping, this is about it.
Oh yes! I wore purple on October 20th Luckily I happened to bring a purple shirt with me.
I don't recall if I mentioned this already or not, but I found the lake on campus. It's really pretty, and there was this lookout with a spiral staircase :D I've been meaning to return but I haven't had the time as of late.
The leaves are really starting to change, especially the Ginkgo trees. They have such blinding yellow leaves.
And I mean *blinding*.
My group finally figured out (near the end of this week) what we're going to do for our competition.
A gameshow :D
Joe, one of our classmates who is also performing, showed us an SNL clip of Chris Farley on a Japanese game show (headed my Mike Myers).
Alfie was the gameshow host, Ming Hui was a bankrupt contestant, I was from Mongolia, and Wen Mei was a foreign tourist who could barely speak Chinese.
Buuuut...to keep up with the time frame, I'll post the details in the next blog or two :P
