Hello everybody, it’s Elsie again. I see that it has been 12 days since my last blog post, which is actually pretty good, at least for me, because I’m usually very lazy about updates. My life has been fine and I hope yours has been, too.
I have mixed feelings about going back to school. It’s the 19th of August today, which means I have exactly 13 days till my first day of school. That’s less than two weeks, which is kind of crazy. I’m also leaving Shanghai in 6 days. I’m excited to see all my friends again, read in the beautiful Huffington Library, take piano lessons, run cross country, learn new things… but at the same time I’m just not ready for the hustle and bustle of it all. I don’t want to be stressed and sleep deprived again, so soon.
I keep seeing these weird flashes of light in the sky. They’re kind of like lightning, and I’m pretty sure I hear thunder too, but then there’s no rain. This has been happening a lot recently. Apparently they’re dry thunderstorms. I have no idea why dry thunderstorms are happening in Shanghai, since Wikipedia tells me that they usually occur in deserts or places with low atmospheric water vapour. Shanghai summers (including this one) are hot, humid, and rainy. We have dehumidifiers in every room at home. Dear weather, what the heck. Can you please be normal? Thanks.
I’m thinking about doing book reviews on this blog, in the near future or something. Please don’t hold me accountable for this statement, though. I recently won a giveaway of two YA books so I might review those (might being the keyword). I haven’t read YA literature in such a long while. As for the philosophy stuff I read, I’m hesitant about expressing my views on any of them. I don’t consider myself well read at all, so I will not inflict my ignorance on you, my wonderful readers, as much as I can help it.
We ran out of milk so I made a green tea latte without the milk. I guess it doesn’t qualify as a green tea latte anymore, but whatever. I added two spoonfuls of honey to make it less bitter but it’s still pretty bitter. 😦 On a separate note, I have developed a mild addiction to Reddit. Some of the subreddits are just pure gold. 🙂
Thank you for reading. Have a good night, everyone!
