Speaking

Many years ago I always celebrate NYE in a pub or bar but I can’t do that anymore. My friends invited me to a 茶馆 but I decided to stay at home.

I want to travel to France this year, maybe during summer or autumn. My mum give me a mission, she asked me to find a girlfriend for my dog. My dog live with my parents, he is two years old and he is still single. When I come back to home, he always sleep around my shoes.

Writing

Recently people always claimed that Life Needs Rituals , for me, I agree with that. As this Christmas eve I celebrated with my friends. I baked a huge turkey and my friend made dumplings. We combined western cultureand Chinese culture together, that was really interesting. After dinner we put our gifts together like a lucky draw. I got a big plant, what a surprise.

However, for new year’s eve, there was nothing special. Especially during the last day, I was always emotional. One year passed, it seemed like I did nothing. I was so sleepy that day, but I forced myself to stay up to wait for new year. Once it turned to 00:00, I said happy new year to my husband and friends and then I had a good dream.
