It's officially summer. Most colleges (at least in my area) have already been out for a month now. For some people, graduation season could also mean job searching time. I briefly mentioned in one of my posts before, I had a very difficult time finding a job after I graduated from college. These are the things that I learned in hindsight that I wish I could do better. Also, these things are definitely something you might have heard many, many tim...

I was halfway through my junior in high school when I moved to the U.S. a decade ago. I took half a year off from school, so naturally, when I enrolled for the fall, I had to start as a junior again. I spent one and a half year in Taiwanese high school and two years in the U.S. one.

I've always said that college was one of the best times in my life. First time leaving home and feeling independent, in charge of my own schedules, having my own office from my internship, getting my first apartment... there were so many good memories. Going to different parties or bars on the weekends was definitely one of them as well. Before my little sister started her first semester in college, I've shared with her my own partying experience...

Moving to another country, the biggest challenge for me was learning a different language. English is not a new language to me. I've been taking classes from school for years before I came to the U.S. But everything was still very, very difficult to me. I'm not a fast language learner, and as someone who has been in the states for almost a decade, I still know way too little than I should. When I look back on my journey of learning English, there...
