There’s an end to everything … even the sweetest summer vacation.
So, upon returning to Changji today, I decided to finally get rid of my shoes:
Remember how sad I was when I had to say good-bye to the Caboose? Well this time, I wasn’t very unhappy at all, mainly because those shoes and me had never been a very good fit anyway. Besides, I don’t think I will need them in the near future.
There are no walking plans for the next one or two years.
I must continue my studies, pass Russian III and IV, hustle through History of Ancient Greece and Rome, and survive Theory of Slavic Literatures. There is a paper on (Guan Yu) to be written, and some stuff about F. Kafka and F. Dostoyevsky. And then there is the final thesis, which I have no clue about as of yet. Phew…
But besides all that, I have accepted a book deal with a German publisher.
This is of course awesome news, but it means that now I must write, write, write, write, write and then write some more.
And whenever I see something nice, I’ll try to take a picture:
Life is good.
I hope yours is, too!
