I can’t believe I’ve been in the states for 5 years.

Still remember the first time when I arrived the states at Salt Lake City, my only wish was working and studying at California. Because I heard the weather is nice, with sunshine all over the year. There’re warm, pale sands in the endless beach. The ocean reflects dancing lights in the sunshine. Ebb and flow. I imagined it would be like tropical all the time. I told my roomie about it. We both believed it was a beautiful hope. It was that simple.

But I ended up loving east coast more than California. The wish feels like an old dream, like a century ago. But it also feels like yesterday.

I changed. Hope changed. Dream changed. But I still have the love of simulating photons and making art and animation out of it. I’m glad for that.
