Today was the first in a series of informal classes on ancient Chinese culture and history! To be honest, I was a little afraid of committing to this because I wasn’t sure if I had the time (it’s over 4 weekends) but it sounded interesting and now, I am SO GLAD that I chose to go!
We’re having cold brew tea in the office!! (But I purposely moved everything to the boardroom because our desk is too messy 😂😂)Anyway, if you haven’t signed up for the Dayre Tea Exchange + Party yet, please do!! You can go for either one, or both if you want! Sign up here:
So glad it’s the weekend! Looking forward to two lazy days 😂😂😂Kinda made arrangements for go for some classes on hanfu and ancient Chinese culture every other Saturday for the next two months, so really lazy Saturdays are gonna be rare for a while.
