Sweet Home Altoona

I used to have asthma. This is me in an oxygen tent.

Geez, it's been 3 months! It's time I got back into this. I'm back home in Pennsylvania waiting for my family to wake up. It's been a whirlwind tour of my home state. I've been to D.C. for my best friend's wedding, to Altoona to visit Alex and Bri, to Harrisburg to visit my mom for her birthday, to State College to visit Allender and finally to Philly to see Linds. All in 4 days! It seems like each person was designated by the meal I ate with them. Alex and I met for ice cream (not a meal, although I'd like it to be). My mom for dinner, Allender for breakfast and Lindsey again for dinner. I'm excited to come back to Utah and have my real vacation, and not have to drive anywhere. It was so nice to see everyone. Sometimes it's weird coming home, but it's always nice being with the people you love, and it's good to know they're still there for you.

The time that was not spent in a car, I just sat around, read, and watched the Olympics Opening Ceremony on, which was mind-blowing by the way! If you have 52 minutes and you haven't seen it, go here. It shows the highlights of it. Download the plug-in. It's totally worth it! I love the Olympics, it made me so proud to be Asian and American all at the same time. Asian cultures have such a rich history--I mean, China invented paper for heaven sakes--and America has Michael Phelps! Either way, they're both amazing and spectacular in their own rite. Speaking of Asian roots, I was messing around on this computer and I found some baby pictures. They're pretty funny, and since I've decided pictures are important to any good blog and since I don't have the means to add the pictures from my trip (I don't have my camera cord), then I've just posted those for now. Also to come, I'm gonna make my blog look cooler (Jana has inspired me), and I'm teaching myself to sew, so that should be a fun endeavor to blog about!

Sumo baby!

My gram looks funny in this picture

Sad thing is, I pretty much look the same.
