    • A Beautiful Game

      6 years ago

      "It's not about winning.
      It's about playing a beautiful game.
      I want to win a beautfiul game."
      The Wiseman's Fear
      Patrick Rothfuss

      I've been playing a lot of chess this year. In fact, everyday since the 20th of February. I made a silly New Years Resolution when I was drunk. I decided I would play a game of chess everyday once I returned from my holiday. I've never really liked this sort of thing but this year I figured, why not? Somehow I have managed to keep at it. I haven't won many, only about 14 games in the past 69 days. I don't always play a beautiful game, and i'm dissapointed in myself when I don't. But on those days that I do it doesn't matter if I have won or lost.



    • Elevator Rides

      This past weekend I decided to visit Changzhou, a nearby town. They have a giant pagoda and I thought it would be cool to see. It was tall and I looked forward to climbing to the top, I cringed a little at the the thought of all those stairs but I was determined to climb them all. There was 13 double stories total. I got to floor 6 and it turns out that you are required to take the elevator the rest of the way up.
      Only in China would you have to take an elevator up to the top of a pagoda.

      After being away for 10 months the day had finally come when my boyfriend and I got to fly home!! I was excited and optimistic, what could go wrong? That was my first mistake.

      Round 1
      In order to get to Shanghai we had to take a cab, to get on a bus so that we could take the train followed by the subway and a 20 minute walk to the hostel. No problems.

      Round 2
      Time to go to the airport. 20 minute walk to the subway, 10 subway stops, mag lev train (300km/h) and then finally we arrived at the airport. We even checked in 4 hours before our flight, what could possibly go wrong?

      Round 3
      We board the plane, take off will be delayed by about 40 minutes....that turned into 7 hours and then a cancelled flight. We exit the plan fully prepared to sleep at the airport when we are offered a place to stay, by a fellow Canadian who lives in Shanghai and was also on our cancelled flight. Sleep, hot shower, pancake breakfast (with maple syrup) and then back to the airport.

      Round 4
      We get to the airport and check in, the flight was delayed by 2 hours but we finally made it to Vancouver, where I sit now waiting for our connecting flight. Our original itinerary had us leaving at 2:15pm....with all of the delays and cancellations we now leave at 8pm. Factor in the time differences and it makes for one long journey.

      Round 5
      We'll see what happens next!!

      I'm hoping it involves a hot shower and clean clothes!!!

    • 18 Days and Counting

      For the past 10 months I have been living in China and working as an English teacher. It has been an amazing year, so amazing that I plan on returning. There have been many pros and cons this year, they are as follows:
      Pros
      I only work 13 hours a week
      I have no bills
      They feed me
      I get to drive an electric bicycle
      Cons
      The food they feed me is not food
      It smells
      Driving my electric bicycle means daily near death experiences
      No access to YouTube or Rooster Teeth videos :(

      But in 18 days I will be back in Canada!! Which means in addition to delicious western food, road rules I understand AND access to the media I have missed out on for the past 10 months.

      Community if you read this I beg of you to help me catch up to the western world and tell me what is a must watch, listen or read!!
