Knowing Chinese makes you sexy, rich and happy :)

When reality strikes

April 27, 2011 – 2:27 pm

My life has been pretty much upside down. I guess that’s life. I’m currently sorting out things and I don’t want to write to much about this here. Despite previously announcing otherwise, I’m still not in China and I do not know when I will have an opportunity to go there. I’m working towards it. I’m still learning Chinese, but I might not be able to set foot on Chinese soil in 2011. Until then, I’ll write a few posts here. The upcoming posts might not be very personal, only my personal, subjective and selective opinion about world news losely related to China and maybe some words about my learning progress.

    After all, that’s what your blog is about.

  4. Welcome back. The things you announced are not different from what you’ve written about before. I think what Justrecently pointed out is the things your readers like most about your blog.

    As for life, it’s full of ups and downs. I had a sucky 2010, especially the second part. Now I’m in Taipei, married, work in an international company and may soon have business trips to Europe. It happened so fast, I’m still processing everything. Be patient. Things happen unexpectedly and I’m sure something good’s about to happen to you and will be related to your goals and dreams.

    As for me, I miss the days when I had more time. I’m spending like 13h a day for job (includes the time I spend in the subway), I virtually have no time for anything. During weekends I’m just at home resting. It’s brutal. But it’s exciting.

    And another bad thing: I have no time to learn Chinese :(

  5. Nice that you’ve put your blog online again!

    Keep your head up and work straight forward towards your goal – learn Chinese, do some extra project at work and keep your eyes open. The worst thing you can do is procrastinating and blaming your past – it’s normal to make mistakes and you’re not gonna make them a second time.

    The good thing is: companies in China, no matter whether they are Chinese or western, are desperately lacking decent middle-managers. If you work hard and get onto that level, I’m sure you’ll have opportunities to live in China – and earn a pretty penny as well ;)
