This is how I know I am psychic…

Yesterday was the first time I realized I had 2 keys for my apartment on my key chain. I thought, “hmm, I should do something about that, it’s probably not a good idea to have 2 keys on the same chain.”

So I gave one key to my neighbour, called it a night and saved myself the hassle of calling a locksmith when I locked myself out later that day.  1-888-AMELIA-KNOWS. Call me. Saving lives, predicting futures.

Oh wait… it didn’t happen that way. I ended up locking myself out of my apartment a few hours later. Brilliant. After climbing onto my balcony and trying to bust open my windows I realized I couldn’t get in. A translator, 3 security guards, one locksmith and 100RMB later, I was back inside.  Turns out locksmiths are expensive  in China! And all he had to do was bang on the door a certain way. Watch out, Canada, I’m learning mad skills here in China. 😉

OK- maybe this doesn’t mean I am psychic, but I do think there is something to be said about trusting your instinct. I often don’t follow my intuition because I don’t realize that’s what it is.  It’s not until after a situation has occurred that I realized I had a feeling something would go wrong. I’m going to try to listen to my “women’s intuition” a bit more.

I’m also trying to listen to my body. Running has been difficult. It’s really hot, humid and polluted.  I’ve noticed that while running, I won’t feel tired but my pace has dropped substantially throughout the work-out. I want to quit. Part of me thinks I am just being lazy, the other part feels weak. Run or stop? It’s a constant battle in my head! I usually end up quitting before I complete the work-out. It’s better to be safe than sorry? Or should I suck it up?

Aiiiiiight, enough about the body and mind. Since who knows when I will lock myself out again, I thought it’d be a good time to share my new digs with you guys!  Behold:

You can't see it but there is a curtain with a pool on it.

The best spot in the place

Need to start investing in pots that are more than $2. Burnt oatmeal. Yuck

And the #1 reason I wanted to live in this building…

Trees! But not my view 😦

Biggest disappointment. Let me in!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!  Ovcr and out from Spring Garden. Why is this post on the side?!?!?
