"If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time."
I recently had to write a paper for my anthro class about an immigrant and analyze how they adjusted to a new culture and society. I decided to write about my father who left Vietnam when he was 19 years old, moving to Hong Kong first, and then finally the United States. He earned his degree and was able to bring my extended family over to America for a better life.
With today being the day to give thanks to whatever you’re grateful for, I would like to begin my thanks to my dad. He has provided my brothers and me with a comfortable life, unconditional love and support, and something so very few people can say they have received: a debt-free education. Thank you pops for being an amazing person!
Of course, the rest of my family is just as important. I am thankful for my sweet and caring mom. I know whenever I’m not having the best day, she will be sure to try to cheer me up. My two older brothers for being the best brothers in the world. I don’t know what I would do without my family.
I would also like to give thanks to my friends, both from high school and college. I am thankful to have remained close with the girls I’ve grown up with and I am thankful for all the awesome people I have met in Irvine and have made college the best roller coaster I’ve been on so far.
Anywho, happy thanksgiving everyone! May you all have the greatest food comas!
ONE WEEK AFTER GRADUATION…EDC LV 2014. CAN’T WAIT! :)
A massive crested tea pot, and four little cups and saucers for each little Hogwarts House. This tea set is gorgeous.
Sold on Etsy.
Surrounded by the best group of BMEs out there. Definitely a lot more missing in these photos. Can’t believe this is our last year together as a class! Cheers to senior year and to UCI BME class of 2014!
