Speaking

every yoga class in the beginning we do yoga meditation. every class the meditation just for 5 minutes, i think it’s very comfortable. I just focus and don’t feel anything. I think 20 minutes or more I will feel stressful.

I forgot my lunch today, I ate Thailand food for my lunch with my friend. My friend in XinHongQiao. There are long time to meet my friend, so I invite her to eat lunch. She’s my roommate in my university. She has short hair, and she has a cute dog. She work in bank. We haven’t meet for 2 months. She is very direct and kindly. I think she’s personality as same as me.

Writing

I lived and worked in chengdu in 2014 for 6 month. I think it was the most confortable time after graduated from university. In chengdu,i worked as a assistant to ceo in Sina,it was not stressful and i almost leaved work at 6:30 pm everyday. usually i ate dinner which bought from outside at home. I often ate bbq with my friends at night while we watched tv show,it was so amazing. At the weekends, i usually went to supermarket to buy some food or snacks with my husbend or went to shopping. Sometimes we went to eat snacks near by Sichuan Normal University becuase we lived aroud there.We ate hotpot very often of course. But living in chengdu was too relaxed and we wont to get more chance as we are young, so we leaved to shanghai.
