Hello November! 

I can’t believe I have been living in China for over two months! I have learned quite a lot about myself in this short amount of time. Living in China, speaking Chinese, eating Chinese food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) has been quite a ride! This past week has been insane. I have had two 15 hour work days and my work load still seems to increase everyday! It is kind of exciting, but at the same time very overwhelming/annoying/frustrating/encouraging/EVERYTHING. I am learning how to live as a Chinese … haha let’s get real! I am in shock literally every time I walk out my door! One very valuable thing is that I have learned is to count  from 1-10 by just using ONE hand! I am going to teach you this very important lesson (use for shopping, buying groceries, minutes, hours, you name it!) …
