Video Blog Episode 2: Arcadia Mock Trial Video Diary November 2010
This defines my winter break
For breakfast, I had a omelette with four eggs, five slices of ham, and four slices of cheese, a protein bar, a large glass of milk, and five tangerines. This is what winter training does to your appetite. Also, I can’t move without pain. It hurts to walk and even sit….I just want to lie in bed for the next week. But I can’t! Afternoon practice in 4 hours, then a team dinner,...

Winter Break Adventures in LA
So my friend Misty from NorCal was in LA for vacation, so Ivana, Celeste, and I took her on an epic day-long adventure around LA. It started with brunch at 9 AM (which is very early for break). We went to Le Pain in Old Town and I had a grilled ham and gruyère omelette. Next, we visited the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center because Misty wanted to see where I swim and we ran into Coach Kristine LOL. Then...

I love the Christmas spirit :)
Even though the past few holiday breaks have been filled with homework (and this year, college apps), I can’t help but smile at the amazing Christmas spirit everywhere. I love the decorations, the songs, the happiness….the list goes on. Merry early Christmas :)

Smiling at the end of the day because.....
I didn’t exactly have the best day today. There were many things that didn’t go as planned, and not everything fell in place as I had hoped. But at the end of the day, I still smiled because I realize that I am lucky to have such great friends…. There’s the person who I stay up with quite frequently to college-app with…who has read practically every draft of all my...

Only in Southern California will it get to 85 degrees in mid-December…. I’m also starting to come down with a mild cold…let’s hope it stays mild! So much stuff happening in the coming days and weeks! Like I posted last night, it’s crazy to think how fast time flies. Today, I was talking to Irene about college apps (as usual) and we began to drift towards talking...
it's already mid-December??
It’s hard to believe that it’s mid-December already. Time flies when life is busy! So this is the last week of school before break! I always love this week because it’s Secret Santa week for Speech (or should I say…Secret Speechie? :P) and everybody’s holiday spirit really starts to show. I just remembered that I still haven’t made the DigiPhoto Christmas...

Anonymous asked: Could you please post more on your blog? I feel so deprived of your postings!
meeshma asked: hi ray :) I always knew you'd do great things, and I know you'll do so much more. Is it weird that I'm so excited to see how everyone will turn out? I'm just convinced that we are all going to become such...fantastic, moving, life changing, motivating people, even more so than we are now. It makes me want to crash all future Arcadia alumni gatherings, just to see how wonderful...
