Since I stayed up and rushed to get the mid-terms finished, I have had a tiring week. I finished up classes today and had a nice break playing basketball with some friends, but when I got home, I tried cleaning up the apartment a little. The first bad thing to happen tonight was that I broke my new thermos. Each of us had a thermos that came with the apartment and it is used for hot water. I broke my original one and finally got another. Tonight I went to set it down and I hit the bottom on the desk. Hard. It broke the plastic. I have the pieces of the first one so I thought to just swap it out. Turns out trying to get the bottoms off is more difficult than one might think. As I pulled the bottom of my new thermos off, the glass part inside slipped out and shattered on the floor. Since the glass part has a vacuum, hitting the floor made it really burst and spread glass all over the kitchen. I spent the next two hours sweeping, moping, and washing everything in the kitchen and the front hall.
But, this weekend promises lots of fun and excitement. I am going to Shanghai with Makenzi for a concert and some sightseeing. We do not have much time there, but we are hoping to see as much as possible. There will be pictures and a long post upon my return.
