Due to some reasons, I didn't go to Bahamas with my roommate during the spring break. Instead, I went there with 3 classmates + one first year MBA(Joanna).  It was a memorable experience to go traveling with friends with different backgrounds.
(Five of us speak 4 different mother tongues.)

It's Elsa who initiated the plan and Pinar picked up the package. We chosen the Grand Bahamas Island, Freeport, instead of Nassue, the capital of Bahamas. I just followed up and asked Melissa and Joanna to join this small group.

4/21是Patriot's Day,是波士頓一年一度馬拉松賽跑的日子,由BAA(Boston Athletic Association)舉辦,從Hopkinton--Ashland--Framingham---Natick--Wellesley---Newton--Brookline--Boston行經主要八個大鎮,終點在Boston Copley Station附近。(全長約26.2miles=38km)

這個全世界最古老的馬拉松賽跑始於1987年的4月19日,只有15人去跑,一直到今年已是第112屆了,從來沒有間斷過,直到1927年,協會將原來的24.5英里延伸至26.2英里(38KM)的奧運規格。一直以來,冠軍者都是得到如古希臘的月桂冠,1986年以後開始加入豐厚的獎金,今年男女雙料的獎金都有15萬美金之譜。(沒錯!如果你很會跑,跑一次就拿到台幣五百萬左右囉!)

1897-1968之間,Patriot's Day一直是4月19日,此節日似乎只在緬因與麻州等新英格蘭地區被認可,這是為了紀念當年美國獨立戰爭開打,除了碰到週日會將馬拉松順延至週一以外(因週末要上教堂吧!)均在4月19日舉行波士頓馬拉松賽跑。1969年統一規定四月的第三個禮拜一為Patroit's Day。

昨天在家舉辦一個火鍋會,起因是前幾週Melissa跟我在討論食物(是哪次也不記得了,因為我們總是在討論哪裡有好吃的)
Melissa很驚訝居然可以在家裡煮火鍋---別懷疑,外國人很難想像火鍋、咖哩飯這種東西可以自己在家做出來...
儘管Melissa是華裔,但第三代華人的背景早就讓他完全Americanlize了...更別提中文囉

Although I didn't sleep a lot yesterday, I woke up at 9am this morning.

It's a huge improvement since I always wake up at 10ish after coming back from LA. I think I got a sleeping problem recently--could not fall asleep even when I am really tired. Even though I take sleeping pill almost every night and have coffee or vitamin B in the morning, it didn't help. Friends also say "Wawa, you look so tired". So, what's wrong with me? I really don't have no clues.

Perhaps  the desire to have Carrot cake is so strong or perhaps I want to prove that I can wake up by myself without Pinar's morning call, I opened my eyes at 7:58am in the beginning. OMG! It's amazing! Although only after a second, I decided to go to bed again. Still, it's memorable to me.
