I am Mindy, and I’m came from China when I was quite little. I stayed in United States for a bit over ten years. Even though I have been here for so long, I can never quite grasp the concept of grammar. I hope I can continue to improve it, along with my vocabulary. Over the years, I met a lot of good friends, and I plan to meet more in Baruch.
During the last year in high school, my friends and I were all excited about college life. We were all going to different schools and knew how hard it would be to keep in touch, especially since one of us going to a state across the country. Well keeping in touch isn’t as hard as it was back in the days, however everyone has to work to keep in touch. If there is only one person trying to keep everyone together it would not work. The perfect example was what happened to my middle school friends. The rest of us are staying in New York, but so far we’ve all been busy to meet up. Sometime around Thanksgiving my friend in Washington will come back for homecoming.
Even though we all went to different colleges, we all agreed on three things. One is that we have a lot of reading to do, second is that books are very expensive and that college isn’t as different from high school as we thought (except with a larger range of age for the students). For me; however; I didn’t take the subway to high school, but now I have to take it everyday. At first I was scared of getting lost; my friends said that I would be an idiot if I managed to get lost in the subway. Taking the subway takes the same amount of time as getting to high school.
As the year goes by, I begin to wonder how I will change. I also wonder whether I will grow a bit. My mom always says “You think you will still grow?…hahaha…” ;o;. But seeing how even a caterpillar needs time to become a butterfly, I will slowly change through out college. I hope I will be able to study better, and manage my time better. Entering college as a caterpillar, and transforming into a butterfly throughout college.
