feeling like i bit off more than i could chew with my goal for this challenge! thought "hey i'll be in china, it'll be easy to get an hour per day of speaking!" but definitely did not count on the amount of work i would be doing while over here that i can (so far) only conduct in english!

60 minutes
1.0h

working on several nagging contract issues and other paperwork related business - not as much time as i'd hoped for to practice my chinese!
