Today largely represented my complete lack of ability in saying no to people—the main example being the Sunday coffee meeting for Shanghai Expat. I could have used today to finish the essay due in two days, but because my marketing supervisor told me last Wednesday she wouldn’t be available today, I ended up going, spending most of my day commuting and hosting the meeting.
I arrived early and decided to tour more of Xintiandi. I found a nice little cafe, enjoyed a much-needed fruit cup (getting enough fruit in my diet lately has been a challenge), and tried to catch up on last week‘s Shanghai history reading. Yeah, I’m pretty behind in that class.
