Apologies for missing a week, but the amount of stuff that I have had in general these past two weeks has been ridiculous. To sum it up shortly, I finished up my physics classes at UD on Friday, emceed at the Chinese Festival of Delaware on Saturday, and have been working straight since then on my family’s installation of hardwood upstairs. I also go back to school in less than two weeks, so I’m starting to organize myself and figure out what I need to bring and prepare for. Some highlights I suppose…
my favorite picture …
Podcasts for later…
Gastropod – for all things food related
Come Reason – Christian apologetics!
watched The Imitation Game – really good, Benedict Cumberbatch is the best and such a good celebration of the life of Alan Turing
want to watch When Harry Met Sally – am trying to get into good, old romantic comedies again
All things Chinese Festival!
Such a good time emceeing for the first time (I’m the one in blue for all the pictures). It’s not one of my strong suits (being on stage), but I genuinely enjoyed it and had a good time with all the people. I also thought it was such a great way to give back to the Chinese community that I have been a part of for so many years.
- my favorite sports to watch are swimming, gymnastics, and beach volleyball
- you should check out the story behind Shang Chunsong if you have the chance
- also, being from two different cultures, I’m blessed to always have a team to root for 🙂 go USA and go China! 🙂
Praying for …
- me and Jason’s relationship
- strength in installing hardwood
- preparation for school
And with that, we’re in August. I have one month left before I head back to school and it feels like summer has flown by. The tomatoes in my mother’s garden, however, have not taken notice, as they are just now beginning to ripen 🙂 Pretty little orange cherry tomatoes too! Other than that exciting news, its been the occasional hangout and more graduation parties. I’m looking forward to the end of my physics class and some time to enjoy myself at last.
Some randomness below 🙂
HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD OMG OMG OMG OMG
My boyfriend preordered this book for me, and I just got it in the mail today. After looking at the reviews and steeling myself for what’s to come, I am so looking forward to reading it.
Not reading necessarily, but I have been journalling lately in this absolutely beautiful notebook that someone gave me. Look how gorgeous!
at Terrain at Styers again… so expensive!! I got the trout with spinach and my friends all got some variety of peach salad with mac and cheese. The location, however, is insanely beautiful.
these beautiful flowers! (at UD)
and this cupcake! (at a grad party)

for healing in sickness
for safety in travel
for peace in the world
for passion for the pursuit of God
Suits – because it’s interesting seeing Mike in prison and how he deals with it
How I Met Your Mother – for relationship advice
Modern Family – for laughs
Over the summer, my boyfriend and I went to Longwood Gardens and then followed that up with a visit to Terrains at Styers for lunch.
We decided that since we hadn’t seen most of the outdoor activities at Longwood Gardens (last time we went it was raining), we tried to do our best to walk the entire loop within the hour and a half that we had. Some quick pictures we took…
After we went to Longwood Gardens, we went to Terrains at Styers. If you haven’t been there, you should definitely check it out! I’ll put the address down below 🙂 Anyway, for those who haven’t been, it’s a cute little shop and restaurant. It sells pots and home decor goods as well as flowers and trees. In addition to that, it has a beautiful restaurant that goes along with its theme quite well. Everything is served in a greenhouse, with bread baked in a pot, green plants everywhere, and the general ambience of the restaurant is amazingly refreshing and new. I’ll stop describing it so much and just show you now heh
