This took me way too long to make.

So I’m going to be working on a project in China later this year. It’s been, what, 3 days since I got the offer and I’ve already printed out and signed so many forms that I should probably donate a hefty portion of my income to a rainforest charity to make up for the guilt.

I do however have some extremely capable and practical team assistants who are helping me to cope with the deluge of paperwork (because, let’s face it, I’m not bureaucracy’s best friend).

Only a fool mixes bureaucracy and logic.

– Ancient Chinese proverb*

Still, it’s totally worth it.

What a To-Do

On the to-do list so far are items such as “learn Mandarin” (how hard can it be?) and “eat an animal I’ve never heard of” (somewhat easier than the previous item). Let’s see how far I get.

Of course, I also really want to take a metric buttload** of pictures and put the best ones up on my flickr page, so look out for them here too.

* no it isn’t.
** this is an official SI unit, you know.
