I’m going to change my blog name to : 100 days of East Lansing. So making 100 photos will be my objective here. That will make more sense right? Though the name is really lame for a blog, like who cares about East Lansing….Well, that will be part of the challenge, too, you know. Making 100 cool pictures of East Lansing certainly is not an easy job, especially by me…
Anyway, I’ll talk more about East Lansing in the future posts. O, and by the way, for those of you don’t know, East Lansing is the city I currently live, somewhere in Michigan, U.S.A.
Speaking of the states, it’s interesting to know that many Americans now are taking Chinese class. Since the day I got here, I’ve been talking to plenty of American strangers in Chinese. Just tonight, when P and I were waiting for the bus, a looking-drunk white male started talking to us in funny Chinese. Amazing, not because he was speaking in Chinese, but because he was speaking in Chinese while drunk. But yeah, my point is, you have to go so far to the states to know that Chinese is being appreciated by more and more people. So, actually I’m very proud of speaking in Chinese, being a bilingual. And I really respect those Americans who try their asses off to learn Chinese. To be honest, it is a really difficult language. Even me have trouble (a lot) answering their questions about the grammar or structure.
Today, I was answering some questions that one of my friends has trouble with in her Chinese class. She started learning Chinese in her high school, and now she can write better than my brother (though she writes in simplified Chinese, which I’m kind of pissed off…jk ). Her favorite Chinese word is “ice”: 冰 (bing-)
