This Beijing Life: Month 2

4.我的北京生活:第2个月

What I’ve Been up to This Month

这个月我都做了些什么

This month has been a crazy-busy, whirlwind, emotional roller coaster of highs and lows. With the National Day Holiday, TBEX Asia (my very first travel blogging conference!!), the “taxi incident”, diving headfirst into admissions season working 10 hour days, and celebrating Halloween in China for the 3rd time, I haven’t even had time to breathe! I want to be a “good expat” and explore my adopted home, but with my admissions job, this blog, freelance writing, and developing friendships, I haven’t really had time to get out much. Hopefully things calm down after these next few months and I can take some time to explore China and relax for once in my life.

这个月是忙得不可开交的一个月,我的情绪像过山车一样跌宕起伏。 随着国庆长假的到来,世界千名旅游博主大会(我的第一次旅行博客会议!),“出租车事件”,招生季每天工作10个小时,第三次在中国庆祝万圣节,我甚至没有时间呼吸!我想成为一个“优秀的外国人”,探索我的第二故乡,但是由于我的招生工作,管理这个博客,自由写作,以及与朋友增进友谊,我真的没有时间出去走走。希望接下来的几个月事情能够平静下来,我可以有时间去探索中国,放松一下。

At the beginning of this month I had a week off for the Chinese National Day. I spent my time exploring Beijing, hitting up a “Vintage Festival”

本月初,我在中国国庆节得到了一个星期的假期。我花了很多时间探索北京,参加了一个“古董节”。



During National Week, a coworker and I went to the “Vintage Festival” in Beijing. There were food stalls representing different restaurants from all over the city and vintage stalls selling everything you could possibly imagine. Unfortunately I was too broke to buy anything!

在国庆周期间,我和一个同事去了北京的“葡萄酒节”。这里有来自全城不同餐馆的美食摊位,还有古董摊位,出售你能想象到的所有东西。不幸的是,我没钱买任何东西!

After TBEX I jumped back into work right at the start of admissions cram season. The Early Decision and Early Action deadline was November 1st. I barely had any sleep at TBEX and immediately I had to work 10-11 hour days six days a week. I was so stressed out I stopped feeling hunger for two weeks (It only recently returned).

在世界千名旅游博主大会之后,我重新投入到工作中,正好是招生季的开始。截止日期是11月1日。我在世界千名旅游博主大会期间几乎没有睡过觉,很快我就得一周工作六天,每天工作10-11个小时。压力太大了,我甚至有两周没有感到饥饿(直到最近才恢复)。

After this month I’ve decided I need to take a step back and focus on the things that are really important. I think I’m going to have to be okay with only publishing one blog post a week, and I’m going to cut back on my social media, and maybe even hire a virtual assistant to help me. I still want to keep my personality on all my social media sites, but I think an assistant can help me curate content, share old posts on Twitter and deal with all the follow-unfollow crap that kills my soul.

这个月过后,我决定退一步,专注于真正重要的事情。我想我不得不接受一个星期只发表一篇博文,我要减少我的社交媒体的更新频率,甚至可能雇一个虚拟助手来帮助我。我仍然希望在我所有的社交媒体网站上保持自己的个性,但我认为助理可以帮助我处理一些事情,在 Twitter上分享以前的帖子,并处理所有的关注——取消关注那些扼杀我灵魂的垃圾。
