Hi, Shu

I haven't surfed the Internet very often during these days, you know it's 春节. I hanged out with my friends, attended class reunions of primary school, middle school, high school and college. I'm so happy these days, and tomorrow I'll go to the movie with my cousins. I'll come back soon and join studymorechinese again ! :)

Pinyin in " I was alone , but not lonely " should be " Wǒ dúzì yīrén, dàn bìng Bù Juéde jìmò " since you have used "但并 "  ( " dàn bìng  " )   for the word "but".

Happy new year to you.
