452 frigin' fantastic China sites

Writer. Traveler. Tea Drinker.

I started this blog as a place to write down my observations and thoughts as I live and explore a new culture. But more than that bloggers have helped me in many aspects of my life (budget bloggers, travel bloggers, entrepreneur bloggers) and I wanted to pay it forward. I have learned a lot about teaching in china, traveling and just living the life of my own choosing. I thought I could share my experiences and information and hopefully inspire people as other have done for me.

(I’m said I’m positive, not kind-hearted.) I maintain this attitude in all aspects of life: guys, job, hobbies, friends. And … Continue reading »

Forget Big Brother, Little Sister is Watching

It’s no secret that in China is a bit of a police state.More than 2 million people monitor online activity and block all mention of sensitive topics and forbidden language. People who speak out against the government are silenced, and foreigners are warned to not discuss “the three T’s.” (Tibet, Taiwan, Tiananmen Square.) This fear, … Continue reading »

The Pressures of a Culture Not Your Own

Because I’m a foreigner living in China, people often say how lucky I am to not be chinese. They don’t mean it in a negative way, but usually when some pressure is building and they don’t like it. Like, pressure to get married. “You’re so lucky to not be Chinese. I’m only 25 but my … Continue reading »
