This week, my friends and I are dancing in the pep rally. The pep rally includes all of the high school students. As the number of audiences can be very intimidating, we are currently practicing to do our best.

We have managed to dance to the songs, “Madonna” by Secret, “Hoot” by Girl’s Generation, “Niggazhitggae” by Sistar, “Let it go”, and “Dangerous” by Boa.

I have been in the dance club since the beginning of high school because I really do enjoy dancing.

During my freshmen year, my friend and I participated in the dance KAIAC in which various international schools in Korea got together and showed off their talents. The video below is a short clip of my friend and I practicing for the KAIAC routine. Our routine consists of “Sweet dreams” by Beyonce, “Change” by Hyuna, “Anonymous”, and “Oh” by Girl’ Generation.

I would continue participating in the dance club in our school and would continue learning new dances to perform.



In our Economy class, we are having a debate. We were divided into pairs and each pair argues for for or against for a particular question. Our question is:

Is Wal-Mart good for the American economy?

I had to argue for being against this question. When I was assigned with this question and position at first, I thought there were no way to win this debate. However, when I thought about it for quite a while, I recognized some of the negative impacts Wal-Mart gives to the American Economy.

There are 4 arguments that my partner and I came up with. One of the arguments are that it kills the other mom and pop stores. Walmart is too much of a competition for the small mom and pop stores to survive. Thus, when their stores close down, the majority of the owners would not have any place but Walmart to work. This will increase the number of poor people and would encourage Walmart’s low quality products for making them as cheap as possible.

I hope that our debate would work out well and would get to learn from each other on both the topic and how to do a good debate.



Yes, I finally made through the first semester of my sophomore year. I am glad that I have actually finished it, but I cannot believe how fast it went.

The seniors tell me that my four years of high school will pass in a instant. Although junior year will be quite tough, those days will be missed when graduation time comes.

I agree with what they say. However, I often lose myself. I want to slack off at times. As time passes, I desire good grades with less effort.

Then I hear from people that have went through their high school years. They all say that they somewhat regret for either not studying as much or not reading enough books.

I get encouraged and motivated by these stories, hoping that I would not have anything to regret when I grow up.

But still.

It is hard. It is easy to say what you are going to do, but it is hard to take it into action. I am currently losing myself. Thinking whether I should just stay with my current grade or work my butt off to at least raise a small portion of my grade.

There are loads of work to do before the finals. When I think about the amount, I feel like I would never make it on time. However, I believe that If I put effort for another 2 weeks, then I am done.

These are the tasks that I have to do:

Macbeth essay. Econ debate preperation. Chemistry worksheet. Psychology worksheet. Precal chapter set. Psychology note-taking. Study Chemistry Quiz. Study Psych Quiz. English Move project. Psychology 2500 words paper essay. English essay presentation.

Hope I will survive the finals week.

I will constantly update some of my school events. As you may predict, these are the upcoming events that will occur at my school.

It is getting really difficult to notice how much time has gone by. This started happening as I started my high school life. Maybe it’s because I concentrate a lot to do the massive amount of homework.

But maybe, it is just because I amĀ lazy. Too lazy to even think where the clock is, which way to turn my head, and look at which numbers the arrows are pointing.

I am just glad that I have my weekend an extra day extended. I hope I would not rely on that day too much to complete my homework, projects, quizzes, and tests.
