Thank you everyone for reading my blog. Last Tuesday I was informed that I was the second most read blogger with 30 views behind Katie, and only 1 ahead of Peter. We each got a little University of Oregon pin and a notepad/cube for being the top bloggers. It was really kind of Regan and Tiah, our supervisors. I really loved it! Please keep reading and make sure to visit all our fellow blogger's pages as well! It's amazing to realize that there are so many people out there reading about our lives. Especially hearing it from friends. I have a lot of people who have told me they've enjoyed reading them. This makes me more than happy to keep writing.
As you may know from my last blog I am now currently down to 12 credits this term. This is the first time I have taken the minimal requirement for my courses. I guess this means I will have more time to search for scholarships and internships. As well as focusing more of my time managing the Hong Kong Student Association (HKSA) and practicing wushu.
April 11th is the date for Hong Kong Night. The biggest event of the year for the club. I met up with the top execs of the club last Friday to discuss our pre plans for the event. Karen the other CO-President of the club has had experience with running HKSA Night for 3 years and is always on top of everything. It's a pleasure working with her and I know that this year is going to be even better than the last! With only 4 months away, we needed to start thinking about promotional ideas, food, performance, decoration, and most importantly funding for the event! We organized the committee members into separate categories so that we can manage the group easily. This will also help keep the group together so that they can focus on one specific task. Anyway more about Hong Kong Night later!
The exec's group also talked about our next fundraiser which was to make Hershey Kisses roses for Valentine's Day. We will be hosting a work day with some of our members this Thursday! The goal is 200 roses. We decided to make them earlier since we are still near the beginning of the term, which means students are free from midterms and projects. Hopefully this works out. I believe the price is $1 dollar per long stem rose. With special discounts if you buy more. If anyone is interested leave a comment! I will also post an event page, and/or contact info for a link on special orders later. Thanks and keep reading!
