my last semester at LAHS

School just started for me. It's hard to believe this will be my last semester of high school. To be honest, I'm already starting to miss LAHS, especially Mr. Shaull's choir class. :-(

Speaking of which, there was some bad news in Chorale: our accompanist Mrs. Hebel passed away on New Year's Day after a battle with cancer. According to Mr. Shaull, she has played the piano for over 60 years. While I didn't see Mrs. Hebel very often, I've always admired her musical talent. My thoughts are with her family during this difficult time.

Now that I'm on my last semester, the biggest challenge is to not catch senioritis. Even though I've submitted my applications, most colleges require the final transcript to complete the process. I guess they really don't want us to start slacking. :P

Happy 2004!

It's so nice to ring in the new year just after coming back from a vacation. Because we're all a little exhausted from the traveling, my family didn't have a party for New Year's Eve. On the other hand, Wei-Jen and Wei-Fang are still staying with us. It's going to be hard to say goodbye to them when they head back to Taiwan in three days.

2003 in review

Despite a stressful spring semester, the past year went fairly well. The best part of 2003 was definitely our recent trip to SoCal and Las Vegas. That was really fun, especially considering that we don't travel with other people very often.

The only real downer when my RuneScape account got hacked in April. I know it's only a game, but losing all my gold and rare item still kind of sucks. I'm just glad I got level 99 cooking before that happened.

All that having been said, I'm looking forward to an exciting new year. Rock on!
