A lot of parties

I am writing papers day after day. So far, my first twenty-page paper is about to an end. This is an extremely difficult task but also full of happiness. I really like writing, regardless in Chinese or in English. The essence of writing has never been changed. Also through writing this paper, I learned a lot about how to write a historical research paper. I believe the experience will be very valuable for my future study. By the way, my professor Swenson is a very nice old man. He corrected my draft every week, including grammatical errors. Have you heard that college professor would not correct your grammar anymore. Maybe it is right. I met few professors in undergraduate school who did that. But, it is funny that my first professor in graduate school who does care about and help me in grammar.

Because my supervisor Gisela is taking two months off for giving birth, I return back to the Student Union building to work from the library office. Working in the office is so boring. In contrast, in Student Union, there are full of fun. Everyday there are new things happen, meeting new people, helping college employees to set up events. Generally, people are very nice to me. They talk with me in a friendly manner; I appreciate their understanding and really like them too.

Today, I attended to a Thanksgiving party holding by Student Activities work-study students. They invited me even though for me it was too later to bring in some food. They did not invite all the people who work in this center, which made me especially happy. Woo, I knew I am not such a cool person. I am ordinary and simply. Tomorrow we’ll have a bigger party from 1 to 3 in the afternoon. It is called multi-culture festival. It is supported to have many foods from different groups of people. It should be fun.

QCC is a community college. Most students here are common young people rather than extremely ambitious persons. They study, but studying is not the dominant goal of them. They play games, join clubs, make friends, have fun, and enjoy lives. I admire this type of life. It is a true way of life.
