Explore Beijing with me!

Hey all! 你们好!

If you’ve been wondering why I’ve been AWOL over the past few months, it’s because I’ve been a little busy. Oh, and I’m in Beijing now. No big deal.

I figured I’d better discover my own cultural heritage before immersing myself in other various continents, getting lost out in the big wide world.

I’ll be here for a year til mid-late February 2015 so I have plenty of time to explore everything Beijing (and beyond!) has to offer. I’m actually supposed to be here to study Chinese, as my year abroad is part of my degree – but of course, I’m loving the process of settling into a new culture… and reaping the benefits of being a hungry journalism student in a foreign city on the lookout for internships and authentic experiences.

So if you want to keep updated on my travels (I’ll talk Chinese food, sights, language, culture, fashion, etiquette, even travel advice), head on over to Beijing on a Bike! Vroom vroommm…

A week in the life of a journalism student

Hey hepcats. I’m extremely sorry about my lack of posts. In this blog, I hope to explain why I had no time…

After net-stalking Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld‘s “a week in the life of” blog/diary entries last week, I’ve decided to do the same thing – despite my life being a thousand times more tedious than a super-smart, pretty Harvard freshman’s with adoring fans and famous parents. But if anyone out there has ever wondered what it was like to be a journalism student, you’re welcome. (DISCLAIMER: This is a week in the life of A journalism student. Not EVERY journalism student. My life is much duller than the average journo’s) So, if you’ve decided to read on, I’m giving you a cookie!
