I'm Katherine, a 22 year old English girl living in Chongqing, China. I basically need to calm the fuck down a bit but you should follow me anyway.

The assault on common sense continues.

In school on a Sunday

because a national holiday starts on Wednesday and I have to “make up” two of the days on the weekend.

Why China? Why?

Also I’ve accidentally ended up dating two guys at the same time, but I’m reluctant to let either of them go. Does this make me a terrible person? I don’t really care. 

I’m sorry.

I need to get into blogging again! But I’m too busy living the dream in Chongqing. Or not quite. Basically I’m here as an English teacher despite the fact that I hate kids and had previously never taught a day in my life. But other than that everything’s great. My apartment is amazing and I don’t have to pay for it. The group of people that I’m with are amazing.

So here I am, sitting in the office in the middle of my 4 hour break. Painting my nails and listening to awful Chinese rock music. Today wasn’t so bad. My classes went pretty well, despite the fact that I woke up 2 minutes before I had to get the bus to work this morning. I’ve spent most of the break chain smoking and downing coffee. 

I’d forgotten how much I love living in China.
