Currently March

Wowza! It's March 1st already! Time is zooming by and I am embarrassed to say I don't remember the last time I wrote a Currently post...

I enjoy reading everyone's posts especially Farley's!  Also I just ADORE her new blog layout and I can't believe it's from the fabulous 3AM Teacher, Michelle!  I love Michelle's work, too!

So here's my currently:
Listening: So my spring break is in 4 weeks and my roommate and I are planning on traveling to Southern China to visit the famous, beautiful mountains and rivers of Guilin.  (If you haven't already guessed, I work in China at an International School!)  I'm super pumped about this trip but also nervous because none of us in the group I'm going in knows how to speak good enough Chinese.  It would be adventure anyways.  We use a lot of hand gestures and acting in China.

Loving: Lately, the pollution is getting very high.  All the news reports says the pollution has been unnaturally high in Northern China (I live close to Beijing).  Since Friday, I've finally seen blue skies!! Today I saw a plane in the air, which is really rare to see when the pollution clouds up the skies.

Thinking: On Mondays, I always cook for my roommate and I.  Sundays is when I plan all the things I need to buy.  So right now, my shopping list is getting extensively long for Monday's supper.

Wanting: I feel like I always need a good full body massage.  Surprisingly, I haven't been to a massage place here in China yet, even though they are relatively cheap here.  I must do some more research!

Needing:  Since I've moved to China in August, I realized how hard it is to find a good gym other than my school.  Here, there is no such thing as Zumba, yoga, or kickboxing (wah)!  I keep telling myself to just use YouTube or ask my friends to mail me some workout DVDs.

????: Did you figure out my question?!!  Hope it's not too hard!  I hope Laura, Han, or Natalie would get this! Guess my question in the comments below!

Don't forget the rule of 3 and link with Farley below!


  1. I'm a first time reader! I found you through Farley's Currently...I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures in China, what an awesome opportunity!

    1. Glad to meet new readers! (Another reason why I love Farley's linky parties!)

  2. Wow - what an adventure! So glad to have found your blog through Farley! Things you miss? I hope the pollution stays away for a bit! Have a blast on your trip!

  3. My daughter was in China recently studying Mandarin. She really enjoyed her short time there. What an amazing choice your have made to teach in China. So brave! I can't wait to hear more!

  4. I'm going to guess "missing?" And running is the best exercise option in foreign countries because you don't need anything and you also get to explore the city... But that might not be the best idea for you, what with the smog! I'd suggest getting a yoga app, maybe finding some free weights, or Googling Tabata workouts (which I did while I was in Georgia--only 20 minutes!).

    1. Googling your ideas! Hoping they will come in handy when I'm stuck inside.


I love reading your cheerful comments!
