Driving, Videos, and Broken Ankles

once again, a lot has happened since my last post.  first, i got a driver’s permit!  that’s right, i can now drive, but only with a licensed adult.  now i’m one step closer to transportation bliss.  second, my roommate and i rearranged our room.  now we have space for some small loveseats.  we’re looking at some couches in nearby holland and we’re hoping to check them out this weekend.  third . . .

Q & A on Where I’m From

Q.  Where are you from?

A.  I think every third-culture or multi-culture kid struggles with answering this question.  Sometimes I say I’m from Hong Kong, other times from Canada, and occasionally California.  You see, I was born in California on independence day.  A year later, my family moved to Macau, which is a small island by Hong Kong.  Two years later, we went to Canada.  That’s where I spent my grade school years, and that’s also where I picked up my English.  I think Canada had the biggest role in shaping me into who I am today.  I lived in Toronto for five years, and then I moved to a small town in Alberta called Medicine Hat for two.  After that, I was off to Hong Kong where I spent eight years adjusting to a new culture.  I attended an international school based on the Canadian curriculum because my Chinese was too poor.  There was no way I could adjust to the local school system in time.  Then just recently, I came to Calvin.  So now I’m back from where I started!  That’s a really long answer for a simple question.  Now you know why third/multi-cultural kids grin whenever you ask :-)

Semester Two Starts!

how i wish i could find time to play again… well, it’s been a CRAZY start to my second semester.  it’s only by God’s grace that i’m still up to speed in all my classes.  some poor planning made my first two weeks a bit hectic, but i’ve finally gotten some time to blog.  intramural basketball, textbook problems, young life, and my new love, bramble.  there’s a lot to write about, so read on!
