Unfortunately, the camera had a slight error, which is why you’re seeing a slightly darker picture than usual. Sorry for the inconvenience.
It’s been pretty close! I promised to host the final part of a China-US culture event on the very last day of the year, and this meant that I had to be quick to complete my exams!
Thankfully, the topic I had that day was relatively easy; I was quite familiar with the topic, so I could easily finish it early. Then it was upstairs to the room where I would be hosting part of the show all the way to the end.
And thus closed out the year 2003, a year that started on an encouraging note after the many active events of late 2002 — and that had a very unexpected development in the spring with the onset of SARS. Things then started to turn back to normal following the autumn, where I started taking on some English courses, plus hosting events.
For the year to come, I hope to be more actively involved in the university. I look forward to meeting friends at the university again soon. ■ ■ ■
