The Coolest Winter I Ever Had

This week is so still so freezing. Many people said the campus should be shut down, but I think the college cannot do this too frequently because it seems this weather will last for a couple weeks. It is hard to go anywhere. This situation will not be strange if you are from Michigan, while this is a good chance for you to see the snow if you are from California.

At the weekend, I went to a gathering for the coming Chinese New Year, which is January 31st. This new year will also be celebrated by other Asian countries including Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and so on. Our Chinese new year has a very simple name in Chinese: the Spring Festival. This name implies that the new year always starts as the beginning of Spring. If it also works in America, then we will probably say bye to the annoying accumulated snow in one week 🙂

Dumplings are a traditional food we have in Chinese new year.

It was a great day. And for this coming Friday, we, some Hope students, decide to have a “party” in some Chinese restaurant around here to celebrate the new year. I am pretty hopeful to this event because we did not have much chance to meet each other since we are always busy.

Stay warm.
