Basically nothing on the textbooks. But my history teacher did reveal a little bit to the class. He and the older generations often refer to it as Eighty-Nine Student Wave.

In Chinese the word wave could mean a huge trend.

Thanks buddy. That means a lot to me.

My day is just as usual. Chinese New Year is just getting boring year after year. I feel even more exhausted than workdays after the vacation.

Well our government did well. I’d give you that. Things like voting or democracy/authorization basically don’t exist in our daily life. People don’t care about them or interested in discussing them.

I myself am one of the few exceptions. Now I cannot even live a day without a VPN and the world beyond the wall. Been saving money to immigrate to europe with my wife. It would seem to take a lifetime to get that much money though.

Currently no. But selling one is against the law and some people I know doing that business have already been arrested or “invited” by the police and sign a guarantee document or something.
