Here’s a chalkboard summary of my summer in China: I don’t like to be friendly. I don’t like people. I don’t like friendly people. I don’t like sharing food. I don’t like hugs in hot weather. Thanks a lot for not letting me be comfortable, FRIENDS.

Edited: Friday, August 22 When I got back, everyone kept asking why I didn’t stay for the Olympics. My answer was “it’s better watching it on TV.” But now that I’ve seen these pictures, I guess being at the opening ceremonies wouldn’t have been too bad.
