Happy New Year (Again)!
Hello y'all! Did you all celebrate soundly with some li xi (red packets) and delicious Chinese food tonight? I hope you were enjoying the joyous atmosphere of CNY as much as I was today. As well as receiving some New Year's dough from my boss, I was fortunate enough to spend some quality time with loved ones over a lovely meal tonight. Also, it is now the start of my one week break and I am looking forward so incredibly much to utter and complete freedom from school and work. Nevertheless, I can't complain about work- so far it's been a fun and fantastic position!

Although today was quite enjoyable with that amazing sunshine and some bustle at work (I actually felt like I did some real work today!), I couldn't truthfully say that I felt like I was on my mini-vacation yet. However, a beast of a feast with my family for my belated birthday and Chinese New Year, as well as a cheesily entertaining movie (Hansel and Gretel- not worth $15.50), were wonderful starts to the reading break. Now I can only wait in greater anticipation for what is to soon come: catch up with some good friends, high tea, and yet another CNY feast. And you can be sure that I'll definitely be dressing up to the occasion!
