Sorry for that month long break (which is a year in blogger years) but anyway! It’s good to be back. I missed you guys!! Since the coming back from Taiwan, it’s been so hectic! It’s already been a month of high school and let me tell you. Junior year ain’t fun. There’s loads of work! And to add on to the load, I have 2 SAT tutors and Princeton Review classes every Sunday. Which means no more free Sundays!! WHY must you do this to mee?? I already have so much stress! Well at least my younger brother has to suffer with me. MUAHAHA. But seriously, my parents have robbed me of my leisure time. I barely have time to hang out with my friends! But I know that I’m not alone: my friends are busy too. Let’s not talk about work anymore. It’s kinda depressing just thinking about it. So let’s divert to something different.

they are always sleeping!OCAC was by far the BEST experience I’ve ever had. That’s the one thing my friend who had previously gone there, was right about. Isolated from my parents I felt so free from authority. And this environment was just what I needed. I loved that it was an international camp where people who were interested in learning Chinese could come or…their parents make them. Of course that’s not everyone’s priority. Yes, people go there just to have lots of fun too, but I was also pretty interested in improving my Chinese since I’ve been struggling in Mandarin class last year. And making friends was a piece of cake! I practically made new ones everyday! Everyone was soo friendly and even though ages ranged from 14 to 18, age didn’t divide us or make us different. We treated each other the same. We, were friends. Back home I hated how my parents thought I was weird for having friends a year younger than me. It made me so mad! Don’t be age...-ist! But anyway people here were great not like in America. No offense but I feel like we, Americans, judge too much from the way others look and dress and even age! It’s really wrong but that’s a part of our lifestyle. Even though about half are from America the whole friendly environment of it made people not judge, I guess. I don’t know how to explain it but I didn’t meet anyone I hated! Although, there is this one person…but that’s cause she acted fake. And there’s really no reason to! Anyway, I made the greatest friends from all over the world! There were kids from Thailand, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, England, and even Guatemala! It was so sad to leave them but I will definitely visit and keep in touch with them. If you can, do something international with lots of people, you’ll meet the greatest most interesting people, I promise ;]
