Hot,raining summer

These days are a bit difficult for me.

I replied to CCS that I have already got my visa to USA by the I-20 from MUW. I think it might because this is the first time I tried to apply some university that really interested me, so it was so hard to say no. No matter Ewha or MUW, both are programs in my home campus. Sometimes I was too absorbed by chances near to me and totally in my fighting for them, I ignore those better ones which are not that clear and close.

I thought a lot about my education, I think I will not come back to China Women’s University for the degree after that. First, it’s not very useful for me, I have been never interested in any position in Chinese government which need that degree. Second, if I come back for that, I have to study here for one more year to finish all the course they require. But one year for me could be much better and more meaningful. I have studied here for one and half year, some course are good, but not good enough for my one year time. I could get my interdisciplinary studies degree or any other degree and than apply a much better graduate school.All I want to do is making the best use of my college time.Don’t want to spend time for things that can’t offer me enough and give myself an excuse to be proud and take a rest.

People told me, MUW is not the most exciting place, well, it must be right, but it will be my start in America. After CCS’s positive response, now I realized, I could do much more than that. I could apply to other better University all by myself, and no matter how, I can feel that my road is wider and wider.

I feel so graceful for my chance to Korea. In Ewha, I tried all courses I was interested but didn’t have change to try because of my major in home campus. I took Business Communication, Form and space, Social Psychology, International Law and Korean. I dropped International Law, which was one of my great dreams while found that I can really took some portrait that I never imagine.Because of that semester, I dare to apply an art college and send them my flickr. Jennifer from CCS helped me so much, she forward my email and told me that they liked my flickr and I should apply right away. Today I was invited to a activity about photography and shared my photos and experience behind them. It was quite good, that some people really interested in them and asked my contact.

These days I have finished my visa, and medical exams, I even found time to meet a couchsurfer from France and brought him had a big strange dinner.

But still a lot need to do, my summer holiday, full with effort, eating and sharing now. Just like this summer in Beijing, surprisingly hot and surprisingly heave and much rain.

Good thing is I enjoy this summer.

Yeah, these days are terrible, terrible hot. I can’t even go out for a yummy lunch. But at almost dinner time, sun is a bit leaving. Sophia and I went out for taking pictures again.This time I want to try some Chinese style photography. Some picture about Beijing.

My flickr is:

Welcome everyone and every comments, thank you!

enjoy in Beijing

After I come back to Beijing, I started to prepare for US visa and applying another art college in Detroit after I got an offer from MUW, meet a lot of friends. I also bought a new Qipao, an old style Chinese  dress.

Something amazing happened, when I was applying CCS, the art college I was interested. I knew I need a portfolio about my photography, but Form and Space in the last semester in Ewha is my only art class so far, so I don’t have any idea about how to make a portfolio. So I send them email and asked for some advice. In the email, I also send them my flickr. When I received their email, I was with a friend in cafe. I think I will remember the time for quite a long time, Jennifer told me that she forwarded my email to other counselors, they liked my picture and all of them thought I should do it right away and no need for another portfolio now. I was so excited.Thank you Jennifer, for all you’ve done for me so far.

Yesterday my French friend Pascal flied back to France. Before he went back, my friend Sophia and I went to visit him. He and another friend Brice lived in a lovely 四合院, which means a courtyard around by rooms at four different directions. A very traditional style home building in old China. Even now there are still a lot in Hutong, small alleyway. over the courtyard, the fence post was twined by vines. They also have some bikes, we ride bike in hutong and near lakes. Enjoyed snack and drink. After packing, we sat on the roof and enjoy the wind. Their house really jealous me, what a lovely place!

Hello world!

I used to have a lot of messy meaningless blogs, which means now I want some change. This blog will record my life in in my college years. I’m currently studying in Korea, Ewha womans university as an exchange student and soon I will go to US for my next two years study abroad, than I will come back to China for my last one year.

It’s pretty luck and priceless for me to have the chance studying in three different countries and these experience gave, giving and will give me countless treasure.

I want to share it! Enjoy my trip with me!
