First of all, congratulations to Cleveland and Golden state. Both of them won the Eastern and Western conference finals. So they will play on NBA 2014—2015 season Final !!That’ a big stage and I can’t wait. Some friends asked me who are gonna win championship? Obviously I said Lebron’s Cavs. There are some reasons explain why I said this. First, Lebron and his teammates get more experience than Stephen Curry and his teammates. Lebron is going to consecutive his five years to enter the finals. He knows how to play basketball in final, how to let teammates move the ball, how important when they team play good defense. In contrast, Lebron is a better leader than Stephen Curry . You can see, when Kevin Love is out of the season and Kyrie also can’t play some times cause his left knee injury. How Lebron lead his teammates to still play good game and stay confidence. He try to give everything that he had only for one goal that is win the game. I am not saying that Golden state is a loser, they are good team, but Cleveland is better. Let’s see what happen. This week is our review week, we can ask our teacher any questions that we don’t know. Final texts begin this Wednesday. On Wednesday we will have first writing final exam and on Thursday we will have final grammar test. Also, if someone who are not pass first writing final, they can get second chance to write on next Monday. Next Wednesday is our last day of this quarter, we will have reading final test on that day. By the way, My TOEFl test is coming soon. It’s on this Saturday. God, too many test on this two weeks… I am ready to facing difficulties.
On Monday, we took the mid-term exam. It’s on class writing, we have to write do we require to take English lab 16 hours for each quarter？Obviously in my opinion we do need to take English lab for 16 hours. I think I did ok on that assignment and I think I can pass that exam.Our school Yard Sale is on last Thursday. It’s a good situation for students who want to sell their items. Students can sell their old stuff like clothes, accessories and any unwanted items. There also have a “free items sections” for students who wish to donate their items. I do have some old stuff want to sale like a old pot and a backpack, unfortunately I didn’t sale anything successful on that day because there are not many people came to here and ask price or something. So finally, we go home. Lebron tonight got 37 points 18 rebounds and 13 assists big triple-double！Cavs beat the Hawks in an overtime and take a commanding 3-0 series lead! Go Cavs! Next Monday is Memorial Day. No class on Monday!
Originally we are going to take a mid-term exam on Wednesday , but my teacher Mrs Margie has been to the New York, so we canceled exam and moved to next Monday. Fortunately we have more time to review! On Thursday, my writing teacher taught us how to write an opinion paragraph or essay. I think the most important part that is try not to use too many ”I think” or ”In my opinion” statements. Congratulations to Cavs go into the Eastern Conference Finals. Go Cleveland! ALL IN!
Yesterday I went to the 15th Seattle Night Market. Seattle Night Market is a big Taiwan special snack party. It’s very lively, almost all of the Asian people go there on that day every year. But, unfortunately when we get there, too many people waiting in line to get food. We are late because my friend spend a lot time to find the parking space for his car. However, we still got some good foods to eat. In short, it’s a good party. Next week is mid-term examination week, so this week we had already reviewed every thing we learned so far. Hope this time I won’t up. Today I’m so joyful because Lebron made buzzer-beater shot to propel Cavs to victory！before last round, coach Blatt try to make a tactics on the tactical plate, Lebron just go erase it and say”Give me the ball, and I’m going to win this game for us”. I really like his personality, seriously Lebron James means a lot for me, somehow I mean he impact me in some ways. Respect!
On Saturday，my friend Hai Yang asked me do I want to go to Portland Outlet with him and his friends？I said yes immediately, because I felt stuffy and bored on that day, I want hang out with my friends. We got there almost by 3 PM, first we went to a Chinese Sichuan restaurant ate hot pot. Then, we begin to shopping and chatting. It makes me feel relaxed, but I missed watch an important NBA game on Saturday night, It’s playoffs Round 1 Game 7 between two good teams Clippers and defending champion Spurs. Unfortunately, Spurs lost, Chris Paul took the last shot and made it. So this is the first time since 1998 an NBA finals will be without Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant or Tim Duncan. Last week my first class teacher Mr Tom met with each student for ten minutes, we discussed how to make class very helpful for us? how to make group work? And so on. On second class, we attend a seminars on culture shock of loneliness. It’s interesting and I enjoy it.
Tuesday we took the first vocab and reading test on the grammar class. I think I did very well on these test, because last quarter I studied those words already last quarter. We discussed If I was a non-Jewish Danish citizen during World War 2, would I join the Danish Resistance? I said no, I might make anonymous donations to help them, but first of all, I will protect my family first. I also enter my name for the TOFEL test on Jun 6th. I wish I can get a good score, I will study TOFEL industriously anyway.
First of all, Happy birthday to David Wu, today is his birthday. My second class teacher let us begin read the story book called ”Number the Stars”. When I finish reading, I will record my responses to the text and make text to self connections and write down quotes or sentences from the book and then write my reactions. I think it is a really interesting assignment. It give me the opportunity to express my thoughts, and it will help me reading faster. Every Monday I will discuss this in small groups. On my first, we homework is write an essay about a change that has happened last 100 years. I am so exciting about that NBA Playoffs is coming this week. I wish Cleveland Cavalier will win this year championship. However, Miami Heat is out of playoffs, they are 10th in the east, so I’m kind of upset. At the same time, LeBron James is ready to lead his teammates win the first championship for his hometown–Cleveland!
I started tutor on Monday morning, we studied ”Web Quest” about World War 2, then I wrote a summary about Anne Frank who wrote world famous diary while in hiding in occupied Holland. In my first class, I finish first draft essay about introducing myself. Last Monday Duke University won the NCAA Championship, it was a good game.
This week is the first week of Spring Quarter.There is a Chinese saying: Make your whole year’s plans in spring, and make your day’s plan in the morning. I think it’s useful and very sensible. I have a special class called focus on writing, this class is pretty help me to improve writing skills, and will make me more comfortable on writing. I also made some new friends. First week is just like have fun and study syllabus. However, we still have some homework to do, it’s like warm up for us. I am ready though.
Tomorrow is our first day of Spring quarter, Spring Ten days vacation has passed very quickly. For the past 10 days, I studied TOEFL, watched US TV series and went to exercise. Yesterday I went to played Karting with my friends and when we finished we ate Beijing Roast Duck, It’ s a awesome restaurant. Nevertheless, tomorrow is our first day of class. I think I really have to study hard this quarter… Let’s Goooo.
