In Phase 1, I had posed the 10 Big Questions that will be the basis of my research in Xizhou, as I will try and answer them upon arrival. Now in Phase 2, I will be finding helpful resources that will further my understanding on my topic of Body Language, both in Shanghai and Xizhou. I will also be learning to look at the validity of the websites I have and will use throughout my inquiry work.

On Friday, April 14th, 2017, we as the Tactical group had our overnighter where we discussed the importance of all aspects of wellness during our stay at Microcampus. We also reviewed the daily schedule, and got into some of the typical Microcampus routines. Click here for my Pre-Trip Overnighter Reflection.

Today is out last day here at Microcamus and I'm sad to say goodbye. I am so glad I went on this fantastic trip with great students and teacher. Mr. T Talked about how this trip wasn't guaranteed to be great and that we would need to make it great. Well, I'm glad to say that we've made this trip amazing. We had a great balance between work and fun at the same time learning new things. I will miss Microcampus and this amazing experiences I have made here.

Before I came to Xizhou, I wanted to join Microcampus so that I can experience the world outside the "bubble." I wanted to experience less modernized and developed city. I have lived in Shanghai all my life. I thought Xizhou would be calm and quiet and nothing like old towns that are made for tourists. I also expected it to have many old and half broken houses. Obviously, when we arrived, I saw a lot more newly built houses and quite a few tourists.

Today we worked on our service learning project as our priority. We handed in our storyboards at around 9 am. Mr. T was very helpful in giving us tips about our service learning video. During the daily meeting, Mr. T said that our service learning partners have to come. I got quite scared because I did not know if Mr. Zhang would be able to come or not. I knew he had a family business and so I thought he would not be able to join us on Wednesday. At lunch, I went to ask Ms. Zhang, his daughter and she said she will tell him to come which was a relief. The days have been quite busy.

Today was the final full day at Microcampus. There were some tears shed, some from of which were from me. Today was also the day of the Jammies. Once again this trip, Mr. T did not receive any awards. Today was when we finished all of our wrap up work. Everything that was not done earlier had to be done today. Coming to Microcampus was a truly spectacular decision. I have learned so much and I will take this knowledge with me for the rest of my life. I have gotten to know all of the people in this trip much better and I have made so many bonds with the locals here.
