I live near Luohu ( about 15 mins bus ride to Dongmen), together with my family and work as a primary school teacher in Nanshan. So most of my weekdays are spent on the buses or subways because it takes an hour from my home to workplace.
It's quite a regular and healthy life that I am living. I usually go to bed about 10pm or 11pm as I need to get up early for work the next day. I am busy teaching kids and taking buses or subways during the weekdays.
I go to the gym at leat once a week. I don't have much time surfing on the Internet for I prefer to read or watch movies or TV. So for me emails or QQ or cellphone would be more preferable.
I am a quite traditional Chinese yet a simple and easygoing person. I am looking for some friends here that can go out on weekends and share our happiness or foes. I really hope I can make some true friends here.

Yes, I should have thought of you being a teacher, but I didn't, which was stupid as I knew that already. I know a few people whose families are in SZ and who live with their families, and I also know such people who live apart. Both have their advantages and disadvantages for things like cost, companionship and freedom of action, so it's up to each individual to decide what they prefer. I simply wouldn't want to do that much travelling every day, but cost hasn't been a factor for me for a long time now.
I'm back in SZ now so I've got lots of work to do for the next week or so. Maybe when I've got through some of it, I'll invite you to meet up with some of my friends for a dinner, somewhere near Huaqiangbei Lu. Most of my friends seem to be Chinese girls, as the guys don't seem interested in a social life.
Most people I know here don't have the opportunity to live at home as they come from distant provinces, or at least distant Guangdong. They see their family once a year - some like it that way and some don't. You say "term" - are you still in college? I went to live in Bristol for my university when I was 18, and started living abroad by the time I was 26. So I stopped living with my family quite early. Over the years they visited me in many countries and I went home most years to see them, but I wouldn't have wanted to keep living with them.
You wrote back more than I wrote forward, and you have an "about me" which actually says something. I am officially impressed by your efforts, and can now extend you a very warm welcome. Not too warm of course or you may get the wrong idea.
I don't envy you your travelling. My office is gradually moving away from my flat, which is now near Ke Xue Guan Metro Station, but I started living there in 2004 before there was any Metro. The office started in Zhenhua Lu, so it was 10 minutes walking from inside my flat to inside the office, then it moved to Huaqiang taking 15 minutes, and now is at Guo Mao and taking 20 minutes.
Good luck with making friends here - I've made many - mostly through open comments like this. Feel free to read anything I've written to anyone or say rude things about my pictures.
