Day 23: Steven Spielberg is a Director

Today was editing day!

Service Learning video, Inquiry Project video, previous daily video shoutout videos, I do most of the editing in teams.

Which I suppose is ironic as I am truly not very good with editing, for iMovie befuddles me.

I must say I did well though.


Steven Spielberg is a director...


I had an extremely productive day and spent a good portion of my afternoon and morning doing work, resting only to play a little more than an hour of guitar with Shane from 7 something.

I have had two 'jam sessions' with the older Linden brother since being here and enjoy our time immensely, for he is a masterful musician and a lovely singer. 

My thoughts at the beginning of the trip were that I would have to survive an entire month without singing or playing guitar.

Both of these were proven wrong.

We sang and played all the songs we knew, even some songs that we didn't, and I went to bed early feeling happy and sore-throated.

My name is Ryane and I am a fourteen year old student in SAS Puxi. My interest in Microcampus stemmed from a desire to participate in something outside of my sheltered metropolitan lifestyle where everything is done for me and I am painfully inexperienced. I have lived in Shanghai for eight years now but was born in Taipei, Taiwan to an English speaking family of six cousins and numerous relatives. I have left Xizhou and missing it most painfully, however, I am happy and excited for all future Microcampers and the amazing experience they will experience. Be good to T and Ms. Mai!
