Only one month left in Tianjin!
It’s hard to believe that in just thirty days, I will be packing up my things and leaving my sweet gig at Tianjin University of Technology and Education forever.
While my contract here has had its ups-and-downs, I’ll be sad to say goodbye to so many aspects of life here that will completely change when I head home.
Goodbye, “rush hour” traffic over the campus’ pedestrian bridge and girls carrying umbrellas when it’s sunny out.
And of course, goodbye to my many marvelous students.
But it’s not just the campus. What about the strange guy at the 拉面 restaurant? Who will send me philosophical texts in Chinese after I go home?
Will I still be able to find underpants in the trash while karaoke-ing into the wee hours of the morning?
Will roses smell so sweet, when there isn’t suffocating pollution?
And will an adjacent table at the bar leave TWO-AND-A-HALF TSINGTAO TOWERS behind for us to steal??? I don’t think so. I really don’t.
With all this being said, there’s only one thing left to do: cherish this last month in Tianjin before heading on to the rest of my life.
