In China, on Sundays I rest from the world. Back at BYU, on Sundays the world rests with me.

Several aspects of my experience this time in China differ greatly from my last visit to China. I see children wearing diapers, as where before the kids would just do their thing anywhere, and it was gross. I will actually see toilet paper in some public restrooms. The English that I see on signs is actually a lot better this time. However, I am still able to find some bad English occasionally, so here are a few.

I love being in China so much. I feel like I fit right in. The fast paced lifestyle, the high number of people, the opportunities around every corner, and now an internship that allows me give back. I need to graduate and get out of that place. Having said that, I know that I was supposed to be there. BYU was the only university that would hold my transcript for 2.5 years after high school graduation, so I had no choice, but am truly grateful for the experience I've had there and for the stellar education I have received. It's almost time to move on though, and I'm getting anxious.
