This plant sits conveniently on the left hand side of my desk. She's seen it all, the good and the bad of my days. But whenever I look at her, she's always puffing up her cheeks at me, as if she's trying to make my day better.
International Student Vlog and Photo Entries
I am blessed to have a room that have so many hidden corners and edges, all to have the talent to catch the beauty of sunsets. This is one of the many captures my wall has created along with the frames of my window.
I vlogged a busy day in the life :)
Due to travel restriction, in order to travel back to the US, all Chinese citizens need to travel to a third country prior to entering the US border. For me, I chose Singapore and spent a whole two weeks there. I made a series of SG vlog, recording life and experience there. More could be found on my YouTube channel, under name Gloria Lu. Content includes traveling, food, sites to visit, and especially custom policies about how to enter SG and US.
Sense of Place
They are robot sheep in a mall in Beijing.
Yonghe Temple in Beijing.
Being home means being getting to spend more time with my family. We drove to the South of Taiwan and admired the beautiful flower fields that only bloom once a year.
Riding the metro isn't new to me. It reminds me of New York, being in the subway with my friends, except being on the 1 train doesn't allow the beautiful views of the everyday sunsets like that in Taipei. This specific sunset really made me appreciate the everyday things in life I take for granted.
Columbia Global Center or WeWork Site
