<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Warning: I’m about to get cheesy.

I just wanted to say how much I love, appreciate and admire the individuals I have met on WordPress. I never thought my blog would last this long, but my readers — strangers, friends and new friends — keep me at it, and I am so grateful to you all for keeping me company during this transitional phase in my life.

As I have complained again and again — and you’re probably sick of hearing it — making friends has been quite rough for me in China. However, coming home to my computer and finding new comments and “likes” demonstrates another kind of friendship that I used to doubt (gotta love the digital age!). Meeting people online has always sounded a little strange to me, but the WordPress community has proven me wrong. Knowing that people read and sometimes even care about what I have to say is so reassuring that 1), my life is actually pretty interesting (no matter how much I insist it isn’t), 2) I am still capable of making new friends in new places, and 3) there are so many good people in the world!

I realize this is very cheesy, and I get this way sometimes a lot, but I’m going away for two weeks to celebrate Chinese New Years and Spring Festival in Chongqing where I expect to be internet-less. And the only thing that keeps running through my head is, How will I keep up with everyone’s blogs? How will I stay in contact with my WP friends? I’m going to miss them so much!! I know, I know. Only 2 weeks. Actually, less, just 10 days. But see!? That’s how inseparable I am with you all!

(My parents hate it because once I turn my computer on, that’s where I’m glued for the next several hours. I sacrifice the size of my bum for you all. That’s how much I love you.)

See you in 10 days! Until then,

    Awww I’d feel the same way if I had to go away and I’d be missing out on all of these lovely blog postings. I feel like it’s almost an online clique. Have fun and stay safe!

    • Emily He says:

      Oh wowee, I’ve never been part of a clique before!! This is even better than I thought!! I’m part of the IN crowd! Or even better, there isn’t an IN, OUT, or IN BETWEEN club at all! We’re all one big happy family!! See, I told ya’ll I could get real cheezy.

  7. 新年快乐!!!really wish I was in China again for the New Year!!! enjoy it!!

    • Emily He says:

      Thanks Roberta! There was much feasting and now it’s time to hit the gym. 新春快乐!! (I just installed the Chinese typing program onto my computer and it’s doing wonders for my learning!)

  8. I do the same thing. When I am on vacation, I turn away from the computer. It’s healthy. 🙂 Happy lunar new year! I will be celebrating myself. 🙂

    Wish someone in China a happy new year. That has to be on someone’s bucket list and I just did it!

    Very nice holiday… What fish is that (your last picture)?

    • Emily He says:

      haha, oh man. I have NO idea what kind of fish I ate, but I remember it was delicious! The photo was taken in Guatemala, a gorgeous place with the nicest people I have ever met.

  12. Shiv says:

    Cheese sandwich! Haha sending lots of love back. Totally know how you feel. Making connections has got to be worthwhile no matter the medium right? Happy new year!
