Allow me to summarize my respite from blogging:
I graduated from university in July, with a degree in Chinese and Economics. I spent the summer at Middlebury College, Vermont, studying for a Masters in Chinese, which was an incredible experience. I’m going to Shanghai next week for a year, to maintain and improve my Mandarin before I join the world of work. I plan to blog (regularly) during my time in China, just like old times.
In short, I’m back.
