So these are from my last assignment at the Herald EVER! It was a story on international students and how they assimilate into American culture, but still stay rooted in their own cultures, partially by surrounding themselves with other international students. The writer focused on the Saudi Arabian students, and these guys were all really awesome.

Today I went back to my Burmese family's house. I got to meet one of the family members I didn't get to meet on moving day, so now I know the whole family, but I'm still working on trying to memorize everyone's names. At the house, everyone was downstairs, I thought, and then I thought I heard something upstairs. So I go upstairs, and hear music. I put my ear to the door because I couldn't tell if it was the radio or someone actually singing. So I knock on the door, and one of the kids opens the door with a guitar in his hands and some sweet sunglasses. He was playing the guitar, singing in English. I didn't know he knew so much English, and I asked him if he wanted to work as a musician someday, and he said yes. I thought that was the coolest thing, especially since he had his sunglasses on like he was already some famous musician, and I guess he's already got paparazzi with a camera around:)
