May the blog gods smite me until the end of time
It's official: I am the most pathetic excuse for a blogger, EVER. I set out with this goal of posting about all the interesting things and experiences I see and do while I'm in China, but after making two entries, I neglected to post for over a month. Sir, no excuse, sir!
Alas. I will make no excuses. Life here has been busier than I had anticipated, this is true, but not so busy that I could find no time to read two whole Game of Thrones books (obsessed) or spend ungodly amounts of time on Facebook.
Luckily, however, I have had to send weekly reports back to USNA, with an "interesting experience" section, so I have posted what I put in those sections below in an effort to make my transgressions slightly less grievous. Don't be fooled: I marked them with the dates I sent them to the Academy, but I literally just put them up, because I'm a low-life of a blogger. Some of them are long, particularly the one about the bike hitting the car, and are in desperate need of pictures to spice them up a bit, but if you've got the time and care to spend it reading some out-dated but nonetheless interesting stuff, knock yourself out.
From now on, I pledge to do a better job about posting frequently. My posts won't all be long or deep; I hope to post about little random things I notice when I go out and about. With my foot injury putting me on crutches, I don't go out and about as often as before, but I'm now accustomed to using crutches, and the sides of my body just below the armpits are so bruised and rubbed raw by now that they barely even hurt now! Yayyyy....
So again, not that I am under the impression that this blog was a huge source of pleasure or entertainment to anyone, but I am sorry to those that liked what they read after the first two entries and then got nothing but those first two entries for over a month. The concept of blogging about my experiences is still something I care about, although I haven't made it a top priority like I should have.
Until next month! KIDDING.
