The light at the end of the tunnel

Not much has happened since the end of November until now. Our university classes are still happening over Zoom and most of our days are still spent in the proximity of our house. However, the surprisingly warm weather allows me and my flatmates to go on a daily stroll to the park. The amount of people queuing in front of the ice cream truck there makes life seem normal again and you might even forget about the current situation for a while.

This semester I chose a really interesting unit called Business Chinese. The aim of it is to be able to set up and run your own business in China and understand many different concepts, such as advertisement, business etiquette, signing contracts and creating annual reports. All of this is being taught in Chinese, which makes it unbelievably difficult, but I can already say that I have learned many new useful phrases and vocabulary.

Other good news is the fact that I got accepted for a Master's degree in HRM & Industrial Relations, which I'm really excited about. It feels good to have a plan for the future and I am really looking forward to starting this new chapter in September.

The corona crisis is fortunately getting a lot better here in the UK. The vaccination system is successful and the government announced the schedule of gradual lifting of restrictions. This gave everyone a bit of hope at the possibility of being able to go out again and for life to resume back to normal in the near future. Now we just need to hang in there for a few more weeks :)
