Wonderful week! Great trip in San Francisco with my friends. We visited Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard street and Fisherman’s wharf. We take a boat to visit Golden Gate Bridge and one of the popular jail called evil island. Lombard street is really cool and we all three drive the car across the street because it really cool. It has one block section with eight hairpin turns. Fisherman’s wharf is just like pike market in Seattle. There are some pier can go anywhere. The most excited part of this trip was I went to Christmas NBA game between Cavs and Worries！Dramatic match up. And one day before game day when I was shopping！I saw JR Smith in the mall which is the biggest mall in San Francisco called union square. I took a picture with him. It seems like dream come true for me because he is my idol when I in elementary school until lebron James move to Miami I begin to like Heat. By the way, Cavs lost the game but in my point of view the real season is begin on April so let’s see what happen are coming soon. I passed all the courses last quarter and next quarter begin on Jan 4th.
Long time no see guys！ I have almost three weeks didn’t post anything here. Because I just finished my final examination the day before yesterday. During last two weeks, I usually go to school early and find my English tutor to help me prepare final exam. After classover, I usually go to writing center to double check my essays grammar are correct and write the second draft. I think I did very well on my final exams，especially my presentation and my final writing, because my tutor is really helpful and I am readied long time ago with my confident. Next week I and three of my friends are plan to visit San Francisco. There are some good places for tourist such as Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street and the Fisherman’s wharf. We are going to rent a car and book the hotel before we set off.
These two weeks I learned how to drive and I practice drive with my coach every day. I plan to take drive test next Tuesday. I didn’t write journal last week. Last week I received my TOEFL test grade, I got 68 points last time I got 47 points. However 71 can skip our school ESL and to English 101. I will move out my house by the end of this month. Because the house rend is more expensive than before, so I made a decision that I want move to my friend apartment. Next Thursday is Thanksgiving holiday, on that day is my friend Denny’s birthday. We will have a birthday and then we plan to go to outlet for shopping.
On Saturday, I took the TOEFL test. This is my second time for TOEFL, this time is easier than the last, perhaps because that I went to XDF（新东方）to study TOEFL during the summer time, so I think I improved a lot. When I finish TOEFL test, I felt exhausted. But my two friends come to my house and we made and ate dinner together. I am planing to learn how to drive this month, and I will going to take permit test this week. On next Tuesday, My good friend Jack has a birthday party, and I will go there and celebrate with them.
Damn, I just finish this post a few seconds ago, I write a lot and wifi is not work. However I didn’t save it and I don’t have mood to write it again. In conclusion today is Halloween！ I just came back home from school Halloween party, that was really really fun. I went to my friend birthday party when I finish school party, we took big mid-term exam about Journalism project, we gave presentation to two big classes students. I was wrote a lot information about my presentation, but now I just wanna say F***！whatever, my group gave our teacher a surprise. Next Saturday I will take TOEFL test again, Hope I can get better than last time. God,! Never fuck up please.
Last Saturday my friend john invited me to his house for lunch. His host mom’s old job is a chef, so I really enjoy that. We ate some stew lamb with radish and Chinese chives. This Friday is club kick off day which is all the club will go there and publicize and promote their club. My friend Bruce is Kung Fu club president and I am Kung Fu club information communicate officer. It’s a good news that I become an officer but I lost my backpack in school pub building. I contacted adviser and finally I think I will get my backpack back tomorrow. There is the most important project coming soon, presentation again, but this time will have another class come to listen and present.
As a result of I was really really busy last weekend, so I didn’t publish the weekly journal here. But the good news is I am back this week! Last week we have chapter one test, we need to recording an 3 minutes audio about marriage and culture differences. On last weekend, I and my tutor Michelle worked together to prepare my group work, because this week, my group was gave the presentation about ripple effect, domino effect and butterfly effect. Basically, these effects are not just physical phenomenon, they are more like social phenomenon. Presentation is due today, and my group was perfectly done the our job.
As usual the first week of school I made some new friends. I hope I will have a wonderful quarter with them. My writing teacher is my ESL 050 teacher, Her name is Leah, we know each other and she is a very nice teacher. Last quarter When I in ESL 060 class, my adviser told me that Mrs Leah suddenly fainted at the platform. I am so glad to see that she is back to school and become more healthy! My listening speaking class teacher also is a very nice teacher. By the way we didn’t study a lot of new knowledge this week, but we still practiced listening and did own introduction recording on school App.
I’m back, I have arrived Seattle on September 19th. My friend Jack comes to pick me up at the airport. This is the second time I came here, so the only thing that I have to spend time to adapt is the time differences. When I get home, my landlady gave me the key and hand over some security things for me and my new roommates. My new roommates are nice, the one of them is from Spain and others are from US. After a while, my friend Bruce comes to my house chat with me then we went to a Thai restaurant and bought some articles for daily use. The second day I met with some my old friends, we went to the most famous Sichuan foods restaurant in Seattle for lunch. It’s really traditional. The first day of school is September 23th, the first thing that I do is to make an appointment for tutor, because last quarter, tutor really gives me a lot help. This weekend in China is the Mid-autumn Festival, my seven friends and I went to my friend’s apartment play uno, and it’s a kind of cards to play on the table, he got some moon cake, it’s a small party but we enjoy it. Today, I met with some Christian in a supermarket food area. They really nice and they showed the greatest patience to ask me some question; they like to practice their Chinese and I like to practice my English so we will have an informal discussion with them every Sunday, it’s a good news!
Last week was a really busy week, I had took some school final exam during last week.Fortunately I passed all the school final exam include writing final and grammar final. We only had one final exam left that is reading final, I will be ready. Yesterday I and my friend Bruce went to down town Seattle and we took the TOEFl test, it takes very long time. Although I was really exhausted, but I think it’s a really good and important experience for me. One thing really makes me excited that was The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State warriors in game 2 of the NBA Finals，Lebron James got triple double, hope they will continue to win the game 3. Go victory Cavs. ALL IN!
