Today I didn't do much. I was going to go to ShiChaHai to have some tea at the teahouse, but I lost all motivation to do so after I called the airline. Rob got me the China phone number for the Cathay Pacific reservation line, so I thought I'd try to change my flight today. After talking to Ada, we thought that a flight next weekend would work, given that there are still a few things I want to do. However, there are no seats available on ANY flight between now and my regularly scheduled flight. Well, that sucks.
I had finally come to terms with leaving early, and then could not do so. Just my luck.
So, I will see everything I can between now and August 25. I have heard nothing about more teaching assignments from either school here. On the flip side, I have had two schools contact me via email about the possibility of teaching at home. Perhaps there is a cosmic trade-off?
I wish I could say my spirits are up, but they are not, no matter how much I will it to be. I think tomorrow will be better. I will go to the Forbidden City tomorrow with Ada's cousin, Lara. We were going to go today, but she wasn't feeling well. I think it is good we didn't go today, because it was really hot. I hope it will be cooler tomorrow.
