That’s how I usually spend my summer…minus the beach.
This summer will be different. Sure, I want to watch anime. I plan to. And I’ll read manga too if I get the chance. And, of course, I’ll indulge myself in some Pokemon.
I also plan to read some books. I haven’t yet completed the Left Behind series that I started over a year ago. I haven’t even read Wuthering Heights yet. I gave Wuthering Heights a start so now I’m at chapter 3. I’ve got a long way more to go, though. I’ve set it as the book I’ll read at night when I’m ready for bed. Considering the language, I understand it best when I’m relaxed at the end of the day. My treat before I sleep.
But I intend to get into doing more useful things in life. I’ve mentioned before that I’m starting to learn Mandarin. I haven’t learnt as much as I would’ve liked to over the semester but I have learnt just a little bit. As I may have the opportunity to go to Shanghai for the expo (not confirmed yet), I’ll do my best to study the language more rigorously as I have the time.
I’m not sure of what other productive stuff I’ll end up doing but it’ll be interesting, I’m sure.
As yesterday was Mother’s day, I figured I’d show off a little of what I did for my Mum. I made her a card and some origami flowers. I think this one big flower turned out quite lovely. My present was well loved. ^_^.
