Taken in Sanyi

My first semester of Mandarin-learning officially ended on Friday. Friends will be leaving the country and new friends will presumably be made ... it's like college, but sped up, and the one feeling I hated having in college was the sense of instability and constant change. I think it took me a long time to feel like I had roots (attachments) in the school because I was always thinking forward to leaving and not enjoying the present.

I don't want to do that with my time here, and so far I haven't been, but that makes dealing with loss and change much more difficult.

I already know that in the coming semester, I won't be traveling around Taiwan as much (I've seen most of the biggest points of attraction already, anyway) and I probably won't be posting as much about food since I think I've pretty much exhausted the "afternoon tea" and "subpar desserts" categories. I'm not really sure what I'll be doing with the blog ... maybe I'll take a photo a day of something that I find unusual, or maybe I'll share my research on Australia.

Regardless, I'll still be around. :)
