So without further ado....
Here is a really cute and ridiculous video about the wonder of friendship (cue the rainbows and flower petals). The title 朋友 (pengyou) means friend. We sang this song for class the other day. The educational director (basically the principle), the man everyone is slightly afraid of because he's the one you go to if you get caught breaking the language pledge, even came and sang with us a little bit.
Last, but certainly not least, we have this video. This is another our teacher showed us in class to sing. I'm not entirely sure what's going on but it's a super fun song and really catchy so thought I'd show it to you as well.
Finally, there is an article that I came across the other day that talks about some super important reasons to travel, all of which I completely agree with so I thought I'd share it with you. It is an article on the Huffington Post by Ryan O'Rourke called "6 Lessons Travel Teaches You That College Never Will". Even though I've only been in China for a month I have already learned so many different things that I never would sitting in a classroom. Don't get me wrong, I always have been and always will be an advocate for education and college and all that. However, traveling is a different kind of education that never fails to teach you valuable lessons. Whether it's staying in England for a couple weeks or going to a third world country for a year or two, leaving your comfort zone behind and stepping out your door into this brave world is crucial. With traveling you broaden your horizons in so many ways previously unknown.
Well, that's it for now. Time to stop procrastinating. I will have a post up within the next couple days about my adventures from last weekend. And, I have some fun things lined up for this weekend that I can't wait to tell you about as well.
Until then, be safe, be happy, and remember
