Happy New Year! : )

On New Year’s Eve, I went over to a friend’s house for a
party. We had a potluck, so I decided to bring a bit of English culture and made some scones. We had so much food that no dish was completely finished. I also ended
up playing some mahjong, a Chinese game that I only recently learned how to
play. And of course, we watched the ball
drop at midnight and had fireworks. How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve? I
hope everyone had fun and stayed safe. I look forward to seeing techers again
in a couple of days and meeting new freshers, I mean frosh 😛

Do you have any resolutions for the new year? Every year, I
have the intention of keeping up with my resolutions, but I find that in the
end I always fail. So this year, I’m going to keep it simple and not make
a resolution at all. If I want to make a change, I’ll start today, not
tomorrow, or wait for a new year to start. Live life without regrets and be

2012 has treated me well and I’ve been so blessed. Some
memorable moments for me were: surviving
core, switching from ChE to Chem, breaking our 30-match regular season SCIAC tennis
losing streak since 2007 by beating Oxy 5-4, formally joining LBC, completing
The Hunger Games Stack on Ditch Day (thank you seniors/ghosts :P), SURFing at
MIT with Dr. Ying Song and Prof. Stephen J. Lippard, studying abroad at UCL,
and getting the opportunity to visit 10 European countries, obtaining 17 stamps on
my passport over the span of 3 months. I could go on and on listing things, but
that would probably bore you guys.

2013, I’m excited for what you have in store. May this year
be just as great as 2012 or even better.
