How's my Chinese?

I have spent the last four months practicing the basic Chinese characters and the sounds.  It is like learning the English alphabet, but so much more difficult because after you learn the characters you know the sounds but then that is not the actual characters that they write in.  They write in pictures.  The basic characters are good for learning sounds and tones, but not for reading!  It is difficult!!!

Mimi helped me figure out my names in Chinese pictures.  These are very different than the "alphabet" than the characters I am learning, but here is my attempt at writing my names in Chinese!



My doodling that I have taken up to pass the time during my insomnia.  I have not had a normal sleep pattern in the last four months, so the doodling is helpful to clear my mind.
