Lily H.'s Journal

Ever since my brother left for microcampus, I've thought about the day that I'd leave home to go be on my own, either for microcampus or college, more deeply than I ever had before. You could categorize the thoughts I had into two parts, the worries and the dreams. In the worries, there would be the thoughts that I wouldn't be smart enough, strong enough, or responsible enough to live on my own. These fears were centered around the fact that I was a little kid dreaming of a teen or an adult's life.

I am thirteen years old and have been living in Shanghai for five years. I love music, poetry, and art. In my free time, I write, make music, play soccer, and talk to my friends. I can't wait to go to Xizhou and learn more about the interesting, unique culture there!
