Family and Friends

The first semester of the school year is almost over! I can hardly believe it, partly because I have too many tests and projects to complete in the next week and a half. I’m not sure if it’s even possible to do as much as I have to, but I’m sure every other college student feels this same way this time of year. I’m not going to complain. I’m just going to buckle down and get it done because after all the tests and projects are finished it’s Christmas break!

I am so looking forward to this break. Getting so much time off can be somewhat of a bad thing because after a month of being out of school I find myself not wanting to go back, but other than that Christmas break is wonderful! I will be spending some time on campus and some time back at home this break. The Griffin Girls do not rest, and are continuing to practice throughout break so I will be experiencing some of the holiday season at Fontbonne. I am excited to be home and spend quality time with my family, friends, and others I have not really seen since the school year began. I will be spoiling my cats with cat treats daily, making sure they receive lots of love because I absolutely adore them!

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I cannot wait to get a tree to decorate and do all that Christmas shopping I have yet to start! I love the cold, and hope that we do see some snow this season. Snow on Christmas is delightful. I have a positive outlook on this holiday season, and I hope it does not disappoint!

Wishing you a Happy Holidays (and luck finishing this semester)!

Until next time…

Thanksgiving is coming this Thursday (Nov 22). I feel so excited because it will be my first Thanksgiving in the United States.

I really want to say thanks a million to my dear God. He is so faithful, graceful and amazing to take care of me wherever I am, whatever happens.

I want to say thank you to my parents and sister who always support and comfort me when I feel lonely while studying aboard.

I want to say thank you to my all my American friends who help and support me a lot, especially for motivating me to keep studying and enjoy my life here.

I want to say thank you to my all friends in Taiwan, you’re always my best friends no matter how far apart we are.

I want to say thank you to all my professors and friendly staff at Fontbonne, you’re really my key persons to make me become more confident to use English for everything.

I want to say thank you to Rebecca, Ryan, Linda and Gail in the international center, because you’re the most important people helping me to study my graduate program at Fontbonne.

I want to say thank you to all the people who help me, teach me, or just give me a smile. You’re my sunshine to light up my life.

I really like Thanksgiving to let me have a chance to say thank you to everyone. Now, I can describe my feelings to you, it’s just like William Shakespeare said, “I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.”
