Hello from Shanghai !

Hey there ! I'm in Shanghai since Wednesday !
I'm still having problems with jetlag but otherwise everything is fine !!
The people are nice, the appartment is very big and not too noisy.
Here are different views from my appartment :

I'm in "holidays" !

I've just finished my 2-year of IT and Communication course !!! I'm so happy, no more computing course ever ^^.

I've learned a lot about the Web during these 2 years, met interesting people, had interesting courses (video editing,...), had the opportunity to do my end of first year internship abroad (Philippines), had funny nights out, and... the list could go on and on.

I've spent much of my free time shopping, playing the piano, the guitar, browsing the Web, going to the cinema...

Next year, I'll be in a business school in Bordeaux, still 2 or 3 years to go !

Tuesday, I'm leaving to Shanghai, where I'm going to do a 3-month webdesign internship. So looking forward to it !!! But um... with what's happening between Chinese and French right now... I should maybe avoid telling my nationality (wo shi faguo ren in chinese)... haha.

To finish on a musical note, do you know the french band Cocoon ? Well, you should !!!
I especially love this song.

Temporary lack of concentration...

It may happen to anyone...
These few days it looks like I'm unable to concentrate in classes... which are basically useless...
I mean, I have less than 3 weeks to go, huge projects to handle... and going to class is like... basic loss of time.

The real reason of all of this... is my departure to Shanghai... I'm already "in" Shanghai in my head...

I spend most of the time surfing the Web, looking for websites and forums talking about life in Shanghai... I learn a lot on what I can expect !!! Places to see, shopping, cost of life, nights out... So want to be there already !

By the way, the company where I'll work is a german company, vielleicht werde ich deutsch sprechen ? Kidding, it will all be in english, but imagine if I could catch up with my german, it would be great... speaking german in China... I've learnt german 6 years in high school, and read german news everyday. The thing is, I do understand everything I read or hear, but I never talk, so I never practice... Don't have any fellow german friend here haha. Na ja. I figured out I actually liked the german language and it even sounds good to my hears. I'm only saying that because the basic French thinks it sounds horrible and still caricatures german people speaking in a very harsh/cut tone (Nazi period ?), which I find completely stupid. I'm always trying to convice people it's not like that and it's actually beautiful, they never believe me.

Maybe just narrow-minded ? Yeah, dass denke ich.

Busy, busy, busy...

As you can see, my blog isn't updated very frequently...
Many projects in school... and... in less than 3 weeks from now I'll finish school !

There are still big projects awaiting, and no motivation whatsoever to finish them...

In the past months I've been looking for an internship in Shanghai, and after having conference calls and mail exchanges, I finally found one and took my decision.

I'm going to do my internship in a web agency.

I'm so excited to leave, as Shanghai seems to be very appealing, and cheaper in some ways ! Great experience lies within a few weeks... can't wait to go !!!
