Taipei Habits Continue

After this post, there’s vocab, and after that there’s a gallery of some boring photos I’ve been taking here in Seattle.

New Seattle Habits

  • lap swim
  • reading Chinese every day (rather than speaking, unfortunately)

Taipei Habits That I’m Continuing:  

  • going out for coffee every day
  • blogging every day (even though I’m getting bored of it)
  • not really watching tv
  • not taking the garbage or recycling out (to be fair, there’s a strike in Seattle)
  • multiple showers per day (due to heat in Taipei; due to swimming in Seattle)
