March 29 2015 Oh gosh, I could tell why my first semester was so miserable. Because I was taken away one of my favorite friend. Swimming and I had been separated for 5 months and I felt like years. I miss him so much. Last winter break, I had a chance to greet her again; however, it was too short. I could not stand living … Continue reading
March 28 2014 Today is such a happy day. It’s hard to describe how happy I am now and I still feel nostalgic with the pool. I learned the butterfly, the backstroke and the flipturn. It was AWESOME. Again, I love swimming so much. Oh man, whenever remembering or speaking of it, my heart just beats so unusually. I get excited every time I mention … Continue reading
March 22, 2015 Another Sunday has come. Time flies so fast that I didn’t realize now I have already turned 17. People say that I am sensitive, sure I am. I am easy to cry, easy to laugh and easy to recall memories. Remember every Saturday I woke up, my parents would love to take me to a Chinese Restaurant, a Pho Restaurant, or my … Continue reading
I’m so mad today… There was a meeting of Asian Students about the upcoming Lunar New Year, and surrounding me was all Chinese, except for a few Koreans and Vietnamese. The teacher who spoke arbitrarily spoke Chinese and we had no idea about what was going on. I was so furious and I wanted to speak my voice up, but all the Vietnamese girls went … Continue reading What’s the heck?
I can’t wait to get to there. 7 more days and I could get to swim….YAH! OMG, my body is itchy to swim now. The good news is I can have chance to have class with competitive trainers that could train me to become a swimming athlete. I could not describe how much I feel right now… extra happy, neh not enough. I don’t know… … Continue reading I’m so happy…
The sun shone yesterday and I did have my vegetarian diet. I had made 80 laps and it was great. I feel proud of myself. Nothing is impossible. I encouraged and convinced my sister to make 10 laps but she ended up being sick the whole day today. She couldn’t make it and I am ambivalent about it. On one hand, I felt proud and … Continue reading Yay!
I’ve been waiting so long to come back to Vietnam and jump right into the pool, but I don’t think I’m not strong enough to fight the cold. It’s been such a long time ( 2 months I guess) that I haven’t swum; therefore it makes my body weaker. I used to be very good at fighting the cold, regardless of the temperature and my … Continue reading Not again…
This is my trip to Penn State, Again, I like posting pictures rather than writing. This is the over view of Penn State campus. The building you could see there is the Old Main. Penn State campus was huge, therefore, I had to spend almost the whole day visiting the school. . Downtown of … Continue reading Hello Penn State!
This is my trip to Washington D.C. Most of the time we spent here were the museums. Again, enjoy!! I did not have a chance to get close to the White House so I took this picture on the bus. This was taken in the National Art Museum. It was the one on the West Museum, I am not the kind of artist so I … Continue reading Washington D.C
