Hi, friends! Welcome to my Beijing blog!
First of all, my sincerest apologies to everyone for the delay – to call this first post overdue would be an understatement. I’ve been keeping myself so busy studying and absorbing the local culture that I’ve unfortunately neglected the most important aspects of my study abroad experience – careful examination and reflection. I’d like to use this blog as a medium to sort through and recount my most significant experiences in Beijing, and I hope you’ll learn some interesting things as you read!
Before I begin, I’d like to thank my family, friends, teachers, and advisers who have all provided me with invaluable advice and support. I’d especially like to thank Notre Dame’s Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures and the Liu Institute for their generous financial support.
Thank you all for making this experience possible, and hopefully, I can express with some lucidity what I have encountered during my time in Beijing.
