Pretty legit at this point

Wahoo!  I have another blogging platform for the semester, and it's totally official because it's endorsed by CIEE (my program)!  I'm supposed to post three times a week, but I'm starting out with modified versions of my posts here on this blog.  I'll basically talk about the same things on both, but if you're interested in scoping out an additional location of my stories here you go : http://study-shanghai-cgc.ciee.org/nicole-eigbrett/

I started classes yesterday, and to say the least, Chinese was jarring!  Again, I haven't had a class in basically two years so I need to shake off a lot of dust and ressurect all those characters.  I'm in the Intermediate part I class with only two other students, so it's a comfortable setting but I must remain vigilant, and excited, to learn.  We're having class at a tea market tomorrow, using vocabulary and haggling skills.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love tea?  If this keeps up, I'll definitely stay engaged in my studies.

Talk to you next update!

I'm so proud of you and cannot wait to read your other blog, love! Yum, load up on bubble tea while you're there. I have yet to find a good enough version here, even in the city :(
Love you, xox
