The last week before our trip is/was full of great adventures and memories. On Sunday, to celebrate my birthday, I went to Great America with three of my close friends. It was very exciting and I had lots of fun. We went on almost every ride and most of them were rides I had never went on. I was so scared, but having them there was all I needed to make me go on a ride. It took a lot of convincing for them but I am glad that they did. This picture was taken on a ride called Invertigo. Before, when I went to the amusement park, I easily skipped the ride; but that was because no one made me. This picture was taken as "evidence" that I went on. It is very hard to tell, but the ride goes both forwards, then goes back in the opposite direction. People are facing each other when they sit as well as having someone beside you. As you may also notice, one of my friends is Jessica Tran, who got a chance to go to Colombia University and just came back on Saturday. She was lucky enough to join us on Sunday and she was also the person who sat in front of me...and both of us were facing each other. According to her, my expression was hilarious. She said that she has never seen my eyes grow as big as it was during the ride. Instead of hearing her screaming (like I happened to be doing), I saw her laughing the whole ride through. Not because of the ride - but because of me!
Today, before the four of us Yalies, met with Mr. Ramsey, Ms. Kronenberg, Mr. Gosney, Ms. Larson, and Ms. Kim at Uncle Chung's for dinner, I got a second chance to "hang out" with Stephanie. We spent around 7 to 8 hours at the Pacific East Mall (also known as Ranch 99...or 99 Ranch). Here is a small video clip dedicated to Don for our homework assignment.
The two of us were having lots of fun discussing about the books we have completed and in the midst of it all, we decided to make a video. However, things did not turn out so well as most of the video was full of my laughter. Enjoy!
