Besides sewing, I also started doing a Chinese course in Feb. I’m doing it with mum and Boyfriend.
I actually did Chinese in high school (years 7 – 9) and a year at my first uni in 2000. But this is less about writing, more about just speaking and listening.
It’s all going well, though his accent is a bit different to others from whom I’ve learnt. And we’re not learning characters, which sucks.
First lesson in, he told us there’d be no tests. Since I fucking LOVE tests and exams, I was crushed. And I accidentally let out a little sigh of disappointment. Mum looked at me and said, ‘you’re such a fucking nerd. I’m telling your brother.’
