My schedule has basically followed a very consistent pattern:
6 hours of classes including two conversational classes and one listening & speaking class
4 hours of conversational classes, exercising at the gym followed by a lecture at the Medical & Military University in Xi’an (more about that in a later entry)
3 hours of Chinese class, TOEFL tutoring which has now ended, and exercising at the gym
Studying Chinese with my upstairs neighbor and going to the gym.
6 hours of listening & speaking classes followed by yoga at the gym
Saturday & Sunday
Studying Chinese, going to the gym, TOEFL class which has now ended, and running errands
Other than that, the last few months have been peppered with a few excursions including: visiting the BanPo Museum (this is prehistoric humans’ culture), visiting 汉中 Hanzhong, a Shaanxi city near the Sichuan border that at one time was the center of the Han majority’s culture, attending one of Jason’s high school classmates’ wedding and eating out a lot (although as of late I am cooking).
