TIL people view me as someone who apparently always needs WiFi to update my blog.
While at a pre-departure meeting for our International Labor Day weekend trip to Anhui Province (yes, another weekend trip, but at least we get this weekend free and it’s our last one of the semester), our program trip coordinator pointed out that there will be WiFi access in the lobby of the hotels we will stay at. Immediately, I notice at least five people turn and stare directly at me. #what #EMBARRASSING #whyME
So that was an interesting realization. But I haven’t been the only one who complains about not having good or convenient Internet access. I guess I’m an easy target because I do try to keep up daily reports and voice my displeasures at not being able to do so during our group outings.
Maybe I’ll also be known as someone who says “hashtag ART” when admiring good photography in public or takes selfies while procrastinating on a book review essay, for which I already received an extension.
On the way back from the pre-departure meeting, my Cantonese pengyou pointed out a group of elderly dancers outside a gym dancing to some upbeat tunes. Apparently, she sees them almost every night. (I apologize for the crappy quality. I took it across the street at night while walking with other people. And after that incident of being indirectly called out as the annoying blogger, I didn’t want to make too big of a scene by trying to take a better photo.)
My observant Cantonese pengyou also pointed out how these stuffed animals in a coffee shop we stopped at looked like YouTube’s Wong Fu Productions’ awkward animals.
I shared a brownie with another friend at this shop, but the brownie was incredibly disappointing. It was more of a dense cake than the rich, decadent brownie that we were expecting, and for 26 RMB and a longer-than-necessary wait, it wasn’t worth it.
