Um, sorry i kinda forgot about blogging for a while. Mostly i'll just say i've been busy and haven't been home much on the weekend. Mostly i've been hanging out a lot with QQ, who i guess is my girlfriend. Hm. Feels funny saying that, but i think it describes the relationship.
The relationship which is great in many ways, though a bit odd in others.
In a nutshell:
we get on great.
We seem to be able to dialogue pretty decently, and her English is better than she lets on.
But it's a bit odd that she really has no qualms about jumping into a relationship which is "serious."
So that would show up in the immediacy which she began telling her friends i was her boyfriend, or in comments she made about us in the semi-distant future. She used the L word a couple times. And i don't mean "lesbian." Actually i did hear her say "i'm not a lesbian" once or twice, but that's besides hte point.
Anyhow, i was like "whoa, you really need to be more careful, 'cause really you don't know me all that well. Seriously, you could be hurt by somebody [me?]"
Although weirdly enough i haven't been particularly weirded out by any of this, and think Hey, sure we could be together for a long time... why not?
So in the last couple weekends we went to a concert, watched her favourite Juliette Binoche movie, cooked veggie dumplings, went to a few art exhibits, met a bunch of friends, went bike riding, puffed some (which she hadn't before, but rather enjoys - yay), did some drawing, went to her coworkers wedding, took a bunch of photos, etc etc.
It's been fun.
school is almost over, hooray. Last week i was dying, but this week seems pretty mellow, thank god. Just coasting through to the finish. Done on Tuesday. then i've got a bit of time to chill out before heading off to Shanghai and my big China By Train tour. Looking forward.
Ok ok, i'll try and post again before long.
