The anticipation that runs through your body like an iv of anxiety and excitement is something you cannot explain, before you make it to reception. I remember reception day like it was yesterday, it was February 23, 2011. I said my last goodbyes to my mom and my sister and was off to basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The flight from Sacramento California to Missouri was only a few hours, however we had to wait at the USO for the other future soldiers that were coming from the east coast.

and headed to the airport to catch our flight back to Sheridan. As we walked around the airport little tears trickled down my cheek as I realized that I had to leave and wouldn’t be back to my new favorite place in the world for a couple months. Once we touched down in Sheridan, my life went back to normal. I lived life like a normal senior in high school. I hung out with my friends and stayed up for hours either dancing or completing homework assignments.
I wanted to stay in New York City so badly that all but one of the colleges I applied to during my senior year were within three hours of Manhattan. All but the one I ultimately chose, Minerva, a liberal arts university where undergraduates live and learn in seven cities around the globe. I had always fantasized about travelling the world — who doesn’t? At the same time, I wasn’t a seasoned global traveller like some of my Minerva classmates were even before they came to Minerva. Though I had briefly visited Europe, taken a two-week bus tour to Toronto with my family, and flown back to China every few years to visit relatives, I had never really felt at home anywhere but New York.
I was nervous to take on such a big responsibility myself, but when I checked the website and saw there was no chapters in Minnesota, I knew I had to do something. Within the first week I had already collected twenty dresses by word of mouth, and being active on facebook. I held my homecoming open closet and had ten girls head home, dresses in hand, knowing they would be able to attend their dance. Within the next three months I was able to collect over 50 dresses! I decided to hold the first prom open closet early, and had twelve girls come in November to pick out prom or formal dresses for school events.

We spent the entire day packing yesterday our bags and an hour or two packing this morning. We had everything in the world in our trunk. From suitcases full of clothes to coffee beans and some music players.
We waited for roughly a one and a half hours. While we were waiting I was freaking out, thinking and wanting to change my mind about agreeing to going. We waited for so long because it was a new roller coaster, also a bountiful amount of people had wanted to ride it and someone had gotten sick on the ride as a consequence of hearing that I was even more scared about going on Hades 360. Hades 360 is the fastest roller coaster in Wisconsin dells it goes 70 miles per hour, upside down and underground. After waiting for so it was just about our turn to ascend the ride, my sister wanted to sit in the front, i had not wanted to so then after some bickering we sat in about the middle of the roller coaster.
They’ve been trying to find that fountain for months; they’ve searched every article on the Internet that relates to it. In less than forty-five minutes, we frantically packed up our necessities and were all ready to go. The trip to Marble Forest took eight hours, so to pass time, I read a book called The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. I am not much of a reader, but this book blew me away. I was so engrossed with the book, I just had to finish it.
The most memorable summer that I would never forget began on June 22, 2016. It was about 4:30 in the morning when my aunt and parents woke me up so we can catch our first flight at the Richmond International Airport. This was my first time in 9 years that I could go back to China to visit my relatives and grandparents. On this trip, I was going with my Aunt Ying and my grandmother because my parents were too busy with work to take me. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the Richmond International Airport, it was too late to board our flight, so we had to get new boarding passes to our destination.
