你比上次见面的时候帅多了! One of my new year's resolutions was to get back to Mandarin, and so far I'm keeping it! 应为想你了,所以我来找你. I'm nearing the end of the trial period for an online course which I'm pretty impressed by. 学外语不能害羞. With the help of dorky but well-designed dialogues, video clips of all sorts and an effective algorithm for drilling everything from tones to characters to word order, my Chinese is bouncing back after a year and a half lying mostly fallow. 不会用筷子,不就饿死了吗. It feels good to be back at it: I've done 28 intermediate lessons already! 我们也很久没运动了,今天一定会流很多汗. (It may also be I've been throwing myself into it as a way of distracting myself from the approaching iceberg. 他越说越我不想听他.)
