In My Feelings... Beijing, China!
In my feelings? Keeping it real my time in Beijing was full-bodied to say the very least, fresh from Wuhan via my English visa and passport run I was back, back, back! Along the way I had some stumbles, mostly due to those boozy nights at Destination and Kai, but deep within the beginnings of 2020s pandemic wasn't the way I wanted to part ways with the capital city! No, B!
It took me some time before I felt completely settled within my Shunyi District location, Beijing's vast city limits had me travelling down those transit lines to visit some of the main sights and the central areas on the weekends. I maintain that I loved Beijing and still do, sure the distance between places had me covering miles but I got to know the vast transit system. In my feelings for what? During the pandemic I took the Beijing Subway to Beijing's South Railway Station to cancel my initial ticket that was bound for Shanghai Hongqiao, Miss Rona had me masked up on a deserted train car on the way from Houshayu. I was shocked at the silent and semi-closed operation that was going on at the station, the enormity had me in my feelings because it was a distressing moment that I had never imagined happening at all. Looking on the lighter notes I adored taking a DiDi into the city to drink and dance at Destination and Kai, I found my tribe but always remained a world citizen, we're only human? Alright? Be kind!
Beijing, a city that elevated my China experience in ways I could never condense into this post, I will go back soon because it's got me in my feelings completely! I had no idea how it would be to adjust from my introductory life in Wuhan with food outlets a plenty in that Guanggu World City location. I spoke my Chinese and got my buzz from ordering packages that I learned how to collect one I moved to 东亚创展国际, it was an experience that I used to grow during my next move. Did I fall in love during my Beijing stint, I lost count of the feelings I was in and out of, no mistakes were made it was all love! Not feeling the best towards the end, I have learned now in my next phase of life as I progress into my 30s, say less and let others stay in their lane. I will regain my Friday nights, I will hopefully have more Chinese takeaways and eat in options but will never forget my routine in Beijing. It's okay to be in ones feelings, I am all for feeling emotions, I'll be gracious more and more! Professionally I had ish, I'll stand by saying less!
Beijing, In My Feelings!
