There's nothing more boring than a rainy day in November in this city if your friends are busy and you already did your shopping. Sure there are some nice restaurants to go to but once you have your meal, there is not much else to do, especially if you're a teacher and you made all your lesson plans in advance. Anyways, there is not much to do but stare at a dark sky and look at the rain. Its a good thing I brought many more movies because now I have enough for the entire term and I'm visting more places in China like Shandong to see new friends and I'll go back to Shanghai for Korean Barbeque with some new friends I made there. I don't drink alcohol because of unreleated health issues like kidney stones, cluster migraines, and hatial hernia but I'm better off without. Everyone is free to choose their own path but that's just not for me. I'm especially looking forward to visiting Shandong because it will be my first time there. I played it safe last year but this time I'm gonna live it up!
