Road Trip: Sequoia

We left our house at 3 AM today. It was a really cool relaxing drive. Our first and only stop today was Sequoia National Park although we also wanted to make it to Sierra National Forrest. However, our day at Sequoia today was awesome. Everywhere was breathtakingly beautiful. Especially, the view from Moro Rock made our whole day in Sequoia way worth it! Read more

Oceanside Beach

Until I was 20 years old, I’d only been to beaches for about 5 times max. When I first arrived in CA, I was more excited to see ocean along freeway 5 than to see skyscrapers ( as a countryside girl, seeing skyscrapers was considered an amazing amazing experience! ). Going to the beach is always exciting! Something about the breeze, the waves and its sounds, and the blue water really take away whatever on our minds.

My College Experience

Through out my student career, I had never had trouble with school until I transferred to a university. I went from one of the smart students in class to … meh! ( My dear friends and families, now you know I was nothing like you thought. ) But everything happens for ( at least ) a reason. And I know my reasons. Or maybe my excuses? Who cares!

So I went to both community college and university. I have to say that I really liked the community college I went to a lot. It’s because over there I enjoyed most of my classes, I enjoyed taking classes that other students said it was hard, all my favorite professors knew me, and of course classes are way smaller. One of my favorite professors helped me get a tutoring job in the library. My boss and coworkers were all friendly and awesome. I had a lot of fun working with them and learned some cool tricks about solving algebra and calculus problems. Most people there really care about students and professors are there to teach. Unlike at universities, “professors are there to do research”. Of course, it wasn’t always pleasant, but I enjoyed it so much that I didn’t really remember ( that is why it’s always a good idea to write down anything that you want to remember forever because we will forget things ) anything that made me so sad or exhausted besides some students who I had hard time helping at my tutoring job :(.

I would be a very depressed student without you guys!
I knew for sure that I would go to college since before I came here. I had no idea how hard it was because I didn’t feel school was that exhausting when I was in Cambodia. And one of the reasons that I was so eager to go to college came from the fact that no one in my family had gone to college. My brother would always say to me when I was in high school, “make our family proud!” I’ll never forget his words!
