It was just another long day in Chinese class where I made lists and doodled in my notebook, all the while wondering why I'm not making any progress. During the break, I went to visit Victoria, our university liaison, who had mail for me. One letter was from my mom, who sent me NYT articles about two of my favorite filmmakers, Atom Egoyan and John Cameron Mitchell, who both have new movies coming out. I also had a wonderful letter from Meredith. It was such a lovely surprise! Thank you!
It appears that it takes about 2-3 weeks for mail delivery. I now have to figure out the mail system (I can't seem to find envelopes anywhere) but once I do, I'll be in business.
