Learning to Learn

People are often surprised to find that I’m not a great a role model when it comes to study habits and time management. Despite having excelled in academics most of my life, I am generally a slave to procrastination, addicted to Facebook, and completely and utterly incapable of keeping my desk clean for more than [...]

Being an Alumnus: the Family Connection

May, 2012
No comments 1333 views

When I first entered college, alumni relationships seemed to me like something to exploit. Alumni were individuals who could give you job opportunities and free advice, and even though it didn’t make much sense to me as to why an alum would favour someone attending their alma mater so much, I wasn’t about to start [...]

It’s Linsanity over here. I’m sure that as a Taiwanese-American, Jeremy Lin is getting a lot of attention in Asia as well, but here in the USA he is everywhere.

As I packed my bags and got ready to leave campus for the winter holidays, I couldn’t help but feel a little uneasy about the days ahead. Although I would be returning to the same place I returned to every winter break for the past four years, it would be the first time I would [...]

- What You Need To Know Before You Get There
College is all about classes, and homework and tests, right? Um, nope!
But, stop! Don’t take this the wrong way. I’m not in any way saying that school isn’t important. The education you receive in middle school and high school is one of the most important resources [...]

A Big Question: What’s Our Role?

No comments 1408 views

I’ve been at Cal for almost three months now, and if there’s one thing I’ve discovered it’s that the students here all have something to say. The University of California Berkeley has been a center for political and environmental activism since its students headed the Free Speech movement in 1963-1964; students here have made a [...]

About two weeks ago, I found myself in a puzzler of a situation. I was going to college. “What?” you say. “That isn’t a puzzler. You just go, right?” Wrong.

The entirety of my high school career was completed in Shanghai, at Yew Chung International School. It was a great experience for me: I learned a new [...]

“Many people have said that they’ve been to China and know what it’s like. But really, they don’t at all,” says James Andrews, a Canadian who moved to China in 2006. “More often than not, these people went to China and did the whole tourist “thing”.

“I don’t really believe in doing charity,” international student, Adora Youssefian, said to me one evening.
What?! Adora was one of those kind and caring people who is always volunteering for this project or that organization. So when I heard her say that she doesn’t believe in charity, I was slightly taken aback and a little [...]

Ew. Growing up.
I remember those times as a child, when I would play dress-up. “Sweetie, what do you want to be when you grow up?” my parent’s would ask.
I want to be a fireman! I want to be a dancer! A doctor! A vet!
Weren’t those decisions so much easier to make back then? Back [...]

School is like Super Mario. We are running towards a goal, taking risks and trying to avoid bad influences. When we run and don’t make a jump, we tumble to our deaths and the big ‘GAME OVER’ letters eagerly dash before our eyes. But (whew!) it’s just Super Mario; it’s just school! We can always [...]
