Winding Down

My time here is quickly coming to a close, and I haven't written much because I've had quite a bit to handle as of late. Today was my last day of class, and my first day of exams. The next two weeks will be spent studying until my eyes are dry and cracking into dust onto the pages of my books. Honestly, I don't know that I will pass this semester's courses. My entire grade in each class rides on one test for each. All of it. The Chinese testing system really knows how to put the pressure on. I'm going to try not to worry too much about this, though. I know I've learned so much this year, even if it isn't immediately apparent.

Originally, I was kind of heartbroken about returning to the states, but now that the heat and exams have settled in, I guess I can deal with it. Besides, it isn't China that I'm going to miss the most; it's my China-fam, as we've been calling it. I have met such amazing people here. Now isn't the time for writing a reflective piece because I have to go study, but there might be one in the near future. Until then, I am in studying hermitage.
