Class + Work =/= Miserable College Life

Dear Friends,


It feels nice to write again. When the summer is leaving in silence, the fall returns. Like I would always tell you, my favorite seasons, fall and winter, are just right around the corner. I appreciate the happy, sun-shiny days, but what I love the most are the colorful, leave-dancing fall and the magical, mysterious winter.


I had been luckily involved with the International Student Orientation a week before the school started and got to be one of the orientation guides. Being able to meet new students from all over the globe was the most exciting event on my summer calendar. Frankly I was not prepared for school mentally or physically after the orientation. But I kinda put myself together. So a big shout out to myself!

Who am I?

I am a senior carrying 17 credits(full load) this semester, along with 3 part-time jobs on campus. 

What do I do when I am free? 

 I interview people, create and edit video stories, and write stories for the student media (school newspaper, tv station).

 I hang out with friends in the library or the coffee shop near by to finish students' never-ending nightmare-- homework. And I am also active in club activities.

That being said, I am a SUPER busy person!
Many friends think that I am crazy when I told them how many things I am trying to do at the same time. I get tired at times, but the truth is:  

I enjoy my crazy life very much.  

The more activities I am involved in, the more human interactions I get, and the more HYPER I become! And believe me, friendship is the most valuable assets you can receive from college experience.

Love always,
