An (very late) update!

Dear all readers,

I know it has been a while since my last post (actually it was too long ago that I fail to keep track of time) and I sincerely apologise for the lack of activity on my blog in the last semester. But wait, I have a good reason (or so I think) for you.

I’m currently studying abroad at the London School of Economics and Political Science (or the LSE, for short) in the glorious United Kingdom (where the Queen, who has an extremely nice and spacious house, really matters). Just like many other bloggers on this site, this year abroad is a part of my 4-year bachelor program at PC, so after this junior year abroad, I will be back on PC campus for my senior year. As an aspiring economist who also happens to have a tremendous interest in anything political, I chose the LSE – one of the world’s leading universities in economics and social science in general – to spend a year at and I’ve been loving it to the fullest thus far.

London has been a very popular city for PC students to  study abroad. In fact, you can read about studying and living in London from blogposts by another blogger, Andres Taborda, who spent the last semester at King’s College London, here on the very same blogging site. Andres, being a great writer himself, has given very useful information on his blog for those who are interested in knowing more about London and studying abroad program in general. So please check out his page for more details. Due to this reason and many more, I felt like having another blogger writing about London and school life here in general would be a bit redundant. Nevertheless, I miss blogging so much and decide to come back from hiatus. From now on, I will be writing more frequently (I hope!) for those who are interested in reading about what it’s like to be a PC student at the LSE.

My next post, which should be up soon, will provide a quick recap of what happened during my last summer and first term at the LSE. So please stay tune!



Revisiting the values of a liberal arts education

It is still hard to believe that I am already a month into my summer, which also means a month away from the bustling campus of PC. Summer has always been time for reflection upon my past time and the time ahead. Interning also helps the … [Continue reading]

What’s for dinner?

zzzz Forget dinner, I need some sleep zzzzzzzz....

My friends and I have been constantly asking ourselves that question for the last couple of days. We usually have a hard time figuring out what to eat for dinner anyway. Since, you know, we're college students, we have delicate and complicated … [Continue reading]


Chuc mung nam moi

Today is another special day because it Lunar New Year Day  or Tet in Vietnam and many other Asian countries. I was skyping with my family a couple of minutes ago and we surely had a great time. I wasn't sure how the champagne tasted like because I … [Continue reading]

Nemo and first snow day!

Nemo storm

I was quite upset to know that the current snow storm was named after my most beloved animated character Nemo. My middle school and high school friends can attest to my huge obsession with Nemo. Nemo is such a lovable, strong and playful little fish … [Continue reading]

BMSA Retreat!!!!


Hey everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. In all honesty, I'm experiencing BMSA Retreat withdrawal and like all other forms of withdrawal, it's definitely not fun at all. But what is better was that I had an amazing weekend … [Continue reading]

I definitely told myself to mention this in my last post, but then got carried away while talking about the weather and forgot. My bad. Anyways, CONGRATULATIONS TO THOSE WHO ACCEPTED EARLY ACTION AND EARLY DECISION!!!!! I hope it's not too … [Continue reading]

And I’m back with the bitter cold and an exciting semester


PC campus has been at its full swing since last Tuesday when New England and many other parts of the country were witnessing (or rather, suffering from) the most terrifying cold since the beginning of this winter (or so I think). I said goodbye to my … [Continue reading]



One of the benefits, I think, of spending winter break at home in Vietnam is that I enjoy the first breath of 2013 twelve hours before my friends in the US do. I can go ahead and brag with my friends about how 2013 feels like half a day before my … [Continue reading]

Winter is (unofficially almost) here!


Even though my friend Google says that the date marks the official commencement of winter is December 21, I believe that winter is (unofficially almost) here. I think the first snow of the season, heavy rain, bitterly cold air, and powerful winds can … [Continue reading]
