I've already lost count of the days.

Here in Beijing it's almost 11:00 am, which means it's only 8:00 pm back in the states! If you guys want to talk to me, you'll have to get on Skype.
I've now been at BNU for just over two weeks, and it already feels like home. The campus is relatively small and contains mostly square buildings made of red or gray brick, with a few patches of green trees or gardens and a couple of huge, impressive buildings that stand out above the rest. Basically, it fits right in with the rest of the city.
I live in a building called the Lanhui Gongyu, in which the fifth and seventh floors are specifically designated for UC students. My roommate and I share a room but have our own shower and bathroom, which is nice. Outside my window I have a view of some apartment buildings and tennis courts across the street, but I can't see too far because it's pretty foggy today.
The weather's a bit cooler now, since it's been raining on and off (REALLY raining!), but last week Beijing was the hottest it's ever been in sixty years! We had temperatures over a hundred degrees F, routinely.
