Thoughts & Advice for Freshmen Year

advice for freshmen year

this video was made in conjunction with the video on my youtube channel. c: It’s not exactly the same as this post has more information, but it has similar main ideas.

It is now almost the end of summer, which means back to school time for most of us who are still college-aged. I can now almost officially call myself a college sophomore, so I want to impart some of my newfound “wisdom” now that I’m no longer a wide-eyed, bushy tailed freshman. (more…)

Growing Up

My summer is more than halfway over now, and with five weeks of my internship under my belt, I’m finally ready to write about it. I’m not going to lie–I’ve been putting this post off for a while now for two reasons: one to gather my thoughts together, and two to make sure the feelings that I’m feeling is not temporary.

For those of you who don’t know (and I’ve only mentioned this on Facebook so, if you are not a Facebook follower, then chances are you don’t know!), I scored an amazing opportunity this summer as an intern at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Never in my life during high school could I have imagined that as a freshman, I would be able to work there, and still, every day as I walked into work I feel the slightest bit of disbelief that I’m a CDC intern.

I think I might save my internship experience for another post on another day, but here’s what I realized: I hate growing up(more…)

We’re BACK!

After being in maintenance mode for about a week, I’m happy to say we’re back online (and not in maintenance mode!) Hope you enjoy the new look :) I was dying to give the blog a face lift since it really hasn’t changed since last year.

Plenty of new content will be coming soon, so stay tuned!

My Freshmen Year in Pictures

It’s so crazy to think that my first year at Cornell is now officially over. I took a moment to read last year’s (Senior year) reflection on this blog, look at graduation pictures, etc… and I think I left high school feeling uncertain about what the future will bring, but this year has crushed those uncertainties and replaced them with a lot of joy and aspirations and positive vibes.

So in case you missed the pictures on Facebook, here’s my freshmen year in pictures. (more…)

Asia Night 2016 as an MC

It’s so odd to be writing another blog post so soon within the last posting date~ but, I’ve been meaning to document my life at Cornell for the longest time in more ways than just through Facebook/journaling, so this is just another attempt for me to you know, do that.

Asia Night is one of the biggest events of the semester, and this year it drew more than 1,000 people. I got the very, very special honor of being an MC for the event. I got to introduce all of the acts with my co-MC and friend, Dustin, and sit in the best seat ever to watch the performances. I also got to stall (a harder job than I thought it would be) while different groups set up and take down their equipment, raffle off prizes, and low-key (or high-key, I dunno) embarrass myself as I told cheesy jokes.
