After one 16-hour flight, a missing contact lens, and a whole lot of turbulence, we finally arrived in the mother land! Once we finally arrived in Chengdu, China, I couldn’t help but feel a strong sense of accomplishment. That had to be the longest flight ever, considering I had to spend 13 of the 16 […]

A July Afternoon

posted in Natalie Zhang

Normally (school time=2/3 of the year), I’m a hard-working person. However, during the break, all my energy is gone. The two things I enjoy the most are drinking tea with friends and baking.

A Summer Evening at Lafayette

posted in Ryan Beebe
