The semester, my fifth, is over. It was a long one. The apartment's clean—at least to my standards, standards not difficult to meet—and I've exchanged money into USD. I'm still not packed yet, but it won't take long.
Is this me, or is this just me here?
Another New Year's—why not? This afternoon the fireworks started. I was hoping to be out of the country before they began. Actually, Spring Festival is a fun time to be in China, but I'm glad I'll be gone this year. To Yosemite National Park for some quiet.
