I'll take this time to describe the apartment. These apartments are bleak. A huge part of living in China is dealing with energy conservation. Since I'm living south of the Yangtze, none of the buildings have central heating. Because of this, all of the rooms have individual heaters in them. There's only one issue with the heaters, they're only in Chinese. So figuring out how to heat a room is quite a struggle. Another result of the energy saving effort of the country is that there are little to no dryers and all of the lights are fluorescent. These two things aren't a huge issue, they're only a small inconvenience. But upon arrival, the rooms were very minimal and the furniture was the same. At first, I was a little creeped out by the room. The hallways outside the room are noise activated so it leaves some creepy dark areas during the night. If it wasn't for how tired I was the first night, I probably wouldn't have gotten much sleep. But I've started to come around to the rooms and I'm enjoying it.
But as I went through the room, I noticed more things that were missing or wrong. The place didn't have hot water running, internet, and a bathroom light that worked. It took awhile, but I eventually got everything working and operational.
