Day 100. 100th Day of EL: A snow writing on the deck in East Lansing

第一百天 (dì yī bǎi tiān )

Thanks for all of you who are willing to share your time with me in this tinny little city called East Lansing. Although the blog is over, the journey never end. I’ll love to see another 100 days of somewhere by you, me, or any other people around the world someday in the future.

It’s time to say goodbye, goodnight, and good luck!

Thank you again.


Day 99. Got my license

No, not the one you think. Remember I told you that I was taking a course called Social Media Driver License? Yeah, that license 駕照  (jià zhào), I got it. It was mailed to my apartment during the winter break. So I guess I’m a legitimate new media driver now.

Wait, you don’t have a license? Get out off of your new media immediately!!!

Day 98. Welcome back!

The trip from day 76 to day 98 has been an amazing trip. Now, back to my little room in Spartan Village, I feel like my life couldn’t be better without all of my family, friends, people, places around me. :)

Day 98. Bed

Day 98. The bed

Tired, so goodnight.

Day 97. Santa Monica Beach

It’s nice to end the winter trip in a beautiful place like Santa Monica, CA. To my surprise, it is THE most fashionable beach I’ve ever been. People here are young and hip. Girls wear high heeled boots instead of flipflops while guys wear branded clothes instead of souvenir T-shirts. It’s not a highly commercialized beach. If Virginia Beach is Time Square, then Santa Monica is our SOHO.

Day 94. / Day 95. / Day 96.

I made a mistake. I guess this would eventually happen if I didn’t write my blog on the exact date that I should post. So I mess up with the date. Day 95 and 96 were disappeared for no reason, and I can’t just post a post between my posts… anyway… this is how I fixed it. Put three days on one post. That is just great…

Day 95. Cabrillo National Monument

Day 95. Cabrillo National Monument: The sculpture of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first person in Europe who found San Diego

Day 96. Balboa Park

Day 96. Balboa Park: An urban park in downtown San Diego

Day 93. Black Swan

Natalie Portman has this exquisite skills of managing the roles with complicated and challenging characteristic. From V for VendettaGoya’s Ghosts, to Black Swan 黑天鵝 (hei- tian- e/). Although the story is kind of rough for Black Swan, but her act is too outstanding to watch. I love her as an actress who can handle various characteristics. Sweet, dark, or sometimes bitchy (Closer, My Blueberry Nights). So which Natalie you like?


Day 92. The menu

Day 92. Chinese menu

Finally, I can have some Chinese breakfast. But look at the price. Ouch 噢 (ou\)!

By the way, today, our Japanese friends cooked us Japanese Curry. They told us some language barriers that we didn’t notice when we say it. Such as, Chinese like to say ” 蛤 (ha/)” a lot when they don’t understand something, or they feel unbelievable. We say it without notice that people from other country don’t understand what that means.

Also, we tend to say “那個 (na\ ge)” a lot when speaking Chinese. However, the sound of 那個 (na\ ge) is close to “negro,” which is a really bad word to say it in English (It is a serious racist word referring to black people). So yeah, we might say something sounds terrible in the past without notice. I should pay more attention not to say 那個 too often…:p
