I really can’t believe that of my 16 weeks in China there are only 5 more days left until my dad arrives. I certainly have mixed feelings about leaving Beijing, but overall I feel great about the experience I have had, yet ready to come home. I have been slowly packing over the past few weeks and this weekend I am really making a push to try to finish (or at least as close to finish as I can with a few days left). I brought so many clothes with me and I’ve purchased so many new things since I’ve been here, I don’t know how I’ll fit it all!
I had a very interesting opportunity on Wednesday to visit the offices of Nice, which is a photo-sharing app startup company based in Beijing. The app is very popular in China already, and now they are trying to expand into the US. I will be interning with them and helping them remotely when I return to the US.
During my last weekend in Beijing I went to a friend’s apartment where his host parents taught us to make dumplings. It was really interesting for me to get the perspective of what a different host family and apartment was like.
Next week is packed with final exams for me, but I’m really looking forward to our SYA Christmas Party on Friday night and then spending the next week in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong with my Dad.
This will be my last post from China. USA, here I come!
