2017 was a great year for me. It was up and down, out and about. There were a lot of achievements and disappointments. Regardless, I am happy and excited for 2018. I am going to list some of the bests of my 2017.
1: The year of my 21.
I was born in 11-22 so most of my 21 was in 2017. I am legal for all the parties. I went out with friends, checked out the bars and clubs. I realized that I definitely look younger for my age. I love the eyes of all the door checkers when they look at my ID and scan me. Yep, Bitches, I am old enough and I am legal for all the actions.
I also learn that I do not like drinking. I would drink a little bit to get tipsy then I am done.
Being 22 is going to be good.
2: I got accepted to most of the schools I applied to
I was thinking to transfer in fall 2018 which is next year instead of 2017 but I rushed my application process and applied for Fall 2017. It turned out so so much better than I thought. I got to UC Berkeley. Here I am on my winter break after done with my first semester at Cal
3: I traveled a lot
I traveled a lot in 2017. I went Burma/Myanmar for 3 weeks. I traveled from Southern Vietnam to Northern Vietnam for 2 months. I hang out with my friends in Vietnam. We also traveled together. It was so much fun.
I hope I have that much time to travel in 2018
4: I made good friends
I live in the dorm for the school year 2017-2018. Luckily, I got accepted to the transfer theme program which means the people on my whole floor are all junior transfers. I made friends for my life time. Q is the first person I met at Cal. Andy is my brother and my best friends. Cath and Brooke are my sisters. Naira is my unofficial mother lol. Prince is a little new gaybie. K helped me a lot with my projects. My roommate is chill af, more and more.
I can just talk about them all day long. I feel grateful
5: Best Books that I read:
I like to read. The 2 books stand out for me are The Kite Runner and Call Me By Your Name. I can not just choose one or the other.
I read the The Kite Runner when I was taking my flight from San Francisco to Vietnam. The book is very good. I felt nervous to turn to the next page. I was so worried for the characters. I sobbed so much reading the book. The book touches some of the most darkest parts and brightest parts of human being. I see a lot of myself in the book, my childhood, my life as an immigrant, a lover,…
Call Me By Your Name, haunting, heartbreaking and beautiful. I like that no one in the book pays to be homosexual. They just love. Their are so many lines in the book that cut my heart. I can not help but cry when I think about it.
I definitely re-read them sometimes
6: Best Movie: Call Me By Your Name.
I like indie movie. Timothée Chalamet did an awesome job. I can’t wait to see what he can do in the future. The director is a genius. After the movie, I was stunned. A must see
7: Best Party
I went to a Halloween party hosted by the LGBTQ co-op at Cal with my friends. The party was good not because the hosts but because I went with my friends and there were poles to dance. I took 5 shoot ( the most I have ever took) before going to the party to I came to the party pretty drunk. There were 2 poles to dance. My friend and I took over one. We danced so hard that I kicked my friend’s nose. He bleed! He fucked up so bad that we needed to send him home. He lost his phone some where during the night. I felt a little bad just because I was the cause :(. The next day, we found his phone. When I was on my way to the dining, a guy and a girl came up to me and said: ” I saw you on the dance floor last night. Your friend and you killed it”
I did it. lol
