Is it difficult for you to find a work life balance? Getting out, exploring taipei, meeting people etc…

Hello, thanks for your question!

Currently, exploring and getting out is not too difficult. I generally work about 60 hours a week, for instance today was 8am-8pm. I don’t go out on the weekdays, except to work out or eat dinner (mostly alone, sometimes with colleagues or friends). Continue reading “Is it difficult for you to find a work life balance?

If you’re looking the Asian parts of Denver you want to be on S. Havana (more Korean,) or S. Federal, (more Viet.) The Asian community is really small out here. If you want the right kind of Adventure, you just need to be pointed in the right direction first. If you ever make it back through you might want to check out Lodo or Boulder depending on what you’re looking for. You’re not going to find any action out by the airport.

Hi there,

Thanks for your message! I’m guilty of not doing my research of places to see and things to do in the Denver metro area. If I go back there in the future, I will put Lodo and Boulder on my agenda – two of my friends used to live in Boulder and they have nothing but good to say about it.

Thanks for messaging me!

Hi Andy, my name is Tim. I’m going to be a sophomore at the UofOregon this coming Fall but my plan is to transfer to Cal by next Fall. I actually attended SFSU my freshman year but since visiting Cal in October (the big game), I’ve been extremely determined to just continue doing better. My story is extremely long and I’m limited here; however, I know it’s not going to be an easy step towards Berkeley but I want to thank you for inspiring me to continue working towards my dream :)

Hi Tim,

Thanks for reaching out to me! It makes me happy that my stories and experiences have found you. I wish you the best of luck this year in applying to transfer to Cal next year. Feel free to contact me directly if you ever need any tips!

Andy, your writings are so mature and it shows that you’ve experienced so much! I wish I could be as cultured and well thought out as you are online but also as fit/healthy you keep your body! Congrats on graduating and I wish I had gotten to know you better :D

Thank you so much, you flatter me. Please keep in touch!

Thanks for replying to my post earlier, it was really helpful. But one more question, how are the class in terms of difficulty? Are there any suggestions you have for which course/instructor? Again, Thanks!

There are thousands of classes available every semester. Some courses are taught by multiple professors and they all range in difficulty. There are often classes that will never be taught again, or new classes being offered for the first time. Check out schedule.berkeley.edu to search for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 course offerings.

Hey, I came across your blog about PKU. I’m an incoming freshman at NYU and I’m planning on going to the PKU Summer School International this summer. Although I have plenty of things that I’m not sure about (the info online is really confusing, especially housing), I’m really curious about the night/city life in Beijing. How is it/ how was your experience? Thanks!

Hey there,

The night life in Beijing is very, very vibrant. Most people, particularly international students/foreigners go to San Li Tun 三里屯 District where there is a plethora of clubs and bars. You’ll meet people from every continent bar Antarctica. Continue reading “Hey, I came across your blog about PKU.

Hi, I just stumbled across your blog and I absolutely love it! I have a few questions for you. First, what grade level are you in Berkeley? Also, why did you choose to study abroad in China and not Taiwan?

Hi there, thanks for reading my blog!

I’m entering my 4th and final year at Berkeley. Continue reading “Hi, I just stumbled across your blog and I absolutely love it! I have a few questions for you. First, what grade level are you in Berkeley? Also, why did you choose to study abroad in China and not Taiwan?”
