Hi!

I was at Universal Studios Orlando this weekend. I was on a lot of roller coasters and rides. I went on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit (I think that’s what its called) for the very first time on friday night and it was amazing. I went on it the second time saturday night. There’s just something really special about being on a roller coaster at night. It definitely feels so much better than morning or afternoon.

Of course, the Harry Potter theme parks cannot be missed. It is my main purpose after all. Universal Studios have outdone themselves. It really was a magical experience. I love that they ‘hid’ the entrance to the park. It really brings the magic of Harry Potter to life, I feel. Being on the Hogwarts Express, going into Diagon Alley, going to Hogwarts (my school for life) really brings out a lot of emotions in me that I didn’t think I had in me. The trip on the Hogwarts express from ‘London’ Kings Cross to Hogsmeade brought tears into my eyes and I just…it was amazing. TO end the trip, I had to go back to Kings Cross as a closure, to set it in my mind that I am leaving Hogwarts and the Wizarding World back to the real world (of course I could still go into Diagon Alley in fake theme park London, but that’s another story). I wished I had my camera with me so that I can make a vlog or video for memory sake. Maybe the next trip/ uni grad trip I will do just that. Warm butterbeer – just have to give that a shoutout. it was amazing.

That’s it from me. Too much that I want to share about the park, about this trip. I just don’t know where to start, so, that above was what really stood out to me. Hope you enjoyed.

Until next time,
me

2015

New Year. New Resolutions. New School Year. Not a New Me.

I wasn’t able to finish Blogging 101 course last year, despite taking up the challenge. Surprise.

I wasn’t aware live journal had some troubles loading in China. (Then again, it might have been just my laptop) I didn’t do anything about it. Thus, 6 weeks of no blogging at all for me.

I don’t know if I mentioned this earlier, but I lived in Beijing, China for half my life, so for my six-week winter holiday (a very long, very nice, but still a bit short) I was back with my family in China. Ate a lot, seen a lot, didn’t do a lot. I wish I could post some pictures, but I seem to have brought back the wrong memory card, but I do have some sightseeing pictures with me which I will attempt to upload.

School started yesterday. It was very bittersweet. I’m glad to be back in school, yet, I’m the type that keeps thinking ‘last week this time –blah blah blah’. So I was sad that school started at the same time. Keep in mind, I was with family and friends celebrating Christmas, New Year, the holidays in general. I have friends here, but it just isn’t the same without those that you grew up with…

So that’s the update for now.

Till next time,
me
