Today my 综合 teacher told me my reading was excellent. Which is good and all, except she sounded so surprised. I mean, yes thanks, I am not actually the class dunce. I misread one character: I said 住 (zhu) instead of 往 (wang). I’ve done worse, certainly, but I felt like she thought I was incompetent.
Just when I thought I was getting good at this shit.
In other news, I have a new hot water bottle. It is red and soft and fuzzy. They sell electric hot water bottles here, but I just… the thought of the combination of electricity and water seemed like a recipe for disaster, so no. Just no.
