Yesterday was Aim High Celebration Night 2011. This summer went by just like that. I could barely remember the first 4 weeks. But these last 2 weeks went by like a blink of an eye. It was one of the most amazing summer I’ve ever had. I’ve made new friends as well as getting to know know more about older friends. Not only did I grow from this experience, I’ve learned so much too. For some reason, I didn’t cry this summer. I was suprised too. It wasn’t that I didn’t like this summer. I LOVED it but no matter how hard I try to cry it out, no tears came rolling down my face like the previous summers. Everytime I look at the pictures or the yearbook comments, it makes me smile. It made me feel grateful for having a second family like this. Every time I click next on a picture, I think about what we were like a few years ago. We were so tiny and cute. And now looking at us, I could tell we’ve grown a lot and look a lot mature now. It’s scary how time passes so quickly. Well yesterday was a minimum day. We got out at 1:30 after the staff vs. student basketball game and the awards ceremony. Leon drove Dillon, Vivian, Crystal Lui, Crystal Yu, and I to Vivian’s house to get ready for celebration night. Then we went to Kevin’s Noodle House for some amazing pho at Westlake with Peter and Randy. Then it was finally celebration night. Took a lot if preparation, but the night turned out amazing. I had soooo much nice looking pictures on my camera and the night was super successful. I had an AMAZING time! Every time I had a moment, I would say to myself to treasure this day. And I did, but unfortunately, the day has to end somehow. I am slowly running through my head everything that I still remember from this year. There was so much and just looking at the calender with all the days filled out just made me think about how lucky I am to share this summer with some amazing people. I will miss everyone so so much, but I cannot wait for the next! (=
this whoole week has been like jammed pack with things and i come home every night hella tired so i didnt feel like writing. so this week is the last week of aim high. i still find it hard to realize how fast it always goes. i still remember seeing everybody at back to school night and like tomorrow’s already celebration night. it’s like, is that even possible how time went by so fast these few weeks? Expescially these 2 weeks too. So let’s recap shall I? Friday- Harry Potter with Randy, Vivian, Peter, Crystal L, Crystal Y. “Are you crying” -___- but then the crystals got locked in the car afterwards. haha. then went to banana island with them afterwards and it was hella fun. we all definately had an amazing time =) then slept over at grandmas and got my new htc status! yeee! Saturday- Grandpa’s bday, kfc && hotpot Sunday- blueberry cheesecake baking with crystal lui. then sleepover :) Monday- BMW put on a scavenger hunt at Palega. It was hella fun cause Randy keep telling me these jokes. haha. and i saw Andy Lam too! we got to catch up a little. haha. Tuesday- took me an hour to get to open gym because Randy wouldnt drive me -____- Wednesday- BMW went to Fisherman’s Wharf and then went to get In And Out. It was amazing! Then staff dinner at Amir’s family restaurant. It was really good Indian food but hella spicy tho! Then Randy drove me and the Crystals to Teaway, while Vivian and her boyfriend met up with us. Randy had to pee hella badly so we had to go to Tuttimelon and the lady there wouldn’t let us go unless we bought something so Randy bought some frozen yogurt. HAHA. Then we went back to Teaway. It was hella embarrasing cause I had no idea how to order it and stuff. LOL, omg. And then guess what? Randy had to use the bathroom again. Like wtf, I drank way more than him. LOL. So we went to Walgreens but there wasn’t a bathroom. Vivian’s boyfriend is so big and buff. LOL. So then we had to go back to Tuttimelon for him to pee. -___- I really wanted to stay as long as I can, but I know it’s a bad idea to stay out so late when we still have work the next day :( None the less, it was still an unforgettable night. Now that I think back at it, it happened so fast that I still couldn’t believe it was last night. Thursday- Open gym then bussed to stonestown to meet up with Randy. Then he drove us over to Lowell for YFAT =) So I think when me and Randy went into the auditorium, I think I saw Pearl. She was looking at me and like turned around but kept turning her head. Im not sure. The performance was alright tho… we were 20 min late -__- but then met up with Peter, Nate, and Serena during intermission. We got out like at 9:30 but then I was hella hungry tho cause I didnt get to eat dinner. We went outside and then I saw my dad’s car. i was like shoot! i cant go then! but then i asked, and he was fine with it. LOL. Peter drove his car. Randy drove me and Serena to McDonalds but then Serena had to meet up with her parents at Trader Joe’s. haha. YEAH. Aim High has been a blast and it was too short to actually remember everything that happened cause so much DID happen. I was busier these few weeks than I’ve ever been at Waldorf. This is why I have so much fun at Aim High. There is NO stress and I know I can always leave the day happy thinking about what we’ve done today and always looking forward to tomorrow. I hated the weekends these few weeks cause I just wanted Monday to be here again. Unlike regular school days tho… Still can’t believe it’s coming to an end. It’s been an amazing journey and I’m not ready for it to end yet =/ It went by EXTRA fast this year somehow.
As of today, there’s only one and a half week of Aim High 2011. Damn, I think this summer went by super quick. I probably say that every summer, but wheww this one. damn. haha. I am currently doing my first evaluation, and now I see how stressful it can get. LOL. Anyways, today was a pretty good day. Got to school early today and left a box of homemade brownies and a card for Randy cause he drove me to open gym :) Then the usual morning assembly, and our advising won #2 in the egg competition! During prep period, I walked back home to get like 6 stuff animals cause half of my advisees didn’t even participate in pajama’s day today! LOL, so i got there in time and we got 100% today. We are first in the spirit week competition! aaayyyeee! TA meeting during lunch was good, the sandwich was even BETTER! =) Then for activites, Peter and I were supposed to set up the note cards for the scavenger hunt at McClaren Park, so he drove us while Randy, Vivian, and the kiddies had to walk. MUAHAHAA :) He dropped me off at my house so I could dump all the shit I brought, and then back to McClaren. The scavenger hunt wasn’t pretty bad though. LOL. Went back to school for staff meeting and Patrick wrote me a prop. It was hella funny. LOL. Imma take it off the prop wall before summer ends. HAHA. Nate, Randy, Crystal Lui and I stayed after to decided whether or not to go to High School Night tonight. HAHA. so we didn’t end up going except for Randy. HAAH. But Randy drove me and Crystal Lui to my house. He’s nice =] ha. I LOVE being cool with people who can drive. :P Then me and Lui arranged our Harry Potter trip friday with some other peeps. Can’t wait! =)
