December 18th - Motivation and 酸辣粉

I made 酸辣粉!

My Thoughts 🤔 我的想法

My eyes burn.

I need to quit getting on my phone so much after work as, its my fault, my schedule just isn't what I want it to be. Now, there really isn't anyone to blame besides me for my poor schedule. I get a decent amount of sleep, am able to do 100 push ups each day, am able to work, have free time, study but some days I just really "veg out" and watch youtube for 4 hours till I fall alseep.

Motivation where art thou?

So I'm just slowly changing what I do each day. When I am on youtube, I force myself to watch some thing in Chinese (whether music, studying vids or something like that). When on reddit, I've started hopping on the /r/ChineseLanguage subreddit (not the toxic /r/China one) so that I can see what others are asking and talking about. I even found a new study/dictionary resource while looking online here.

My Visa is still taking a bit as the US Government needs a physical copy of the invitation letter signed by the school... so fifty bucks later I am waiting for the letter to get sent to my dad and he will then send it to the company helping us with the Visa. I hope I can make it on time and if not I might find a job while I am in Minnesota.

One cool thing I did do though was make some nice 酸辣粉 (sour/hot noodles) at home using a recipe and what ingredients I had. Though it wasn't as spicy as I wanted it was very good and, honestly, really simple. It was exactly the dinner flavor I was craving.

Now it is time to try and sleep.

Study 📖 学习

So, today I've studied Chinese internet slang but tomorrow I will be focusing on a lot of exercising vocabulary because... I've found a bunch of resources!
