    Changes & Memories

      I miss living in NY. I lived there until I was 11 years old. Then I moved to Florida -___-. Here, I've become a completely different person from who I was then. Before, I was a naive and stuck-up, spoiled brat. I treated people like they should be honored that I even...

    Santa Claus

    As a child growing up in China, I didn't know about "Santa Claus" until school age. Actually when I first saw the picture with a Santa Claus in it. I cringed. In the back of the head I thought that in the the red sack which Santa was carrying...there must be a...

    Town of Mosquitos

    I remember in the summer of 2000 I started my internship as a student teacher in a junior high located in a small town of south mainland China. Since I was in a teacher's program of a community college, going to a countryside school to teach for a month was not such a bad option...

    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    Remember that? the feeling that summer lasted forever, and there was so much thrilling potential, just around the corner - all the waterfights, camps, sleepovers, parties, family visits, and feasts that summer held in store?   I reckon its always summertime in heaven.

    Missing What's In Front Of You!

    I don't know why I do this, but I do it everyday, in the morning sit by the window looking out at the garden to the sky daydreaming and going backward! I see visions and images of memories of the past as if I was really there now back at that time and place, then I find myself...

    Looking Back At It

    I was raped 7 years ago.  The memory of it comes back randomly and when it does, I play the scene over in my head.  When it does, I feel sick to my stomach.  I don't want to cry, I don't get angry, but my stomach just feels funny.  No idea why I do that. ...

    I Love You

    In my young beautiful life as a child I played and found joy in most everything I touched or saw. In the uncertain years of being a teen and trying to find the place I belong I loved with fear of losing and cried with hurt of heart, yet found time inbetween to act out...
