For the first time in a few years, I got to go swing dancing last night. I've been putting it off since I found a place here in Hong Kong that does swing dancing. Mostly probably because I couldn't get anyone to willingly go with me. You'd think I was asking people to shave their heads and give up their limbs by the way they dance around it. Figuratively speaking.
I'd forgotten how much I enjoy swing dancing. I'd probably equate it to the amount of love I have for Tangled in dance form? It's so much fun, I can't believe it's legal. My friends Chloe, Leo and Andrew all came along with me. I think they had fun, for the most part. I know Chloe did, and she'll be going back with me. At least for the next 4 Wednesdays she's here. :/

I don't want to talk about/think about the amount of time I have left with these people. So I won't. 'Cause I already do that enough every day.

The Chinese New Year was a little over a week ago and I enjoyed a parade on a street full of people (discussed time travel with an Egyptian), I got to see Tangled, I've seen Mong Kok at night (basically the sun is always up on that street), been to Aberdeen cemetery, seen some beautiful sunsets, sat outside in perfect weather and read all day, finished my Sketchbook project and had some entertaining outings with friends.

Here are some pictures to recap my return to HK:

I also managed to finish my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project and send it by the postmark due date. Which was extended, and I found that out only after I'd stayed up all night finishing it. u_u

Here's a few pages from that:

They should be digitizing everything from my sketchbook, and it'll be on their tour later this year. :)

Until later, darling.
