Today I received a package of birthday gifts from my parents in China.  I was so happy.  It was the first birthday in the U.S.  However, my parents still shipped gifts for me. 

 I’ve been telling myself to be positive and be strong since I started my study life abroad.  There are difficulties happening in my life everyday.  However, I can feel that I am becoming more and more strong.  I tell myself to let my parents proud of me.

I saw some words in a frame on my supervisor’s wall.  I would like to share with my friends.

Watch your thoughts, they become your words;

Watch your words, they become your actions;

Watch your actions, they become your habits;

Watch your habits, they become your characters;

Watch your characters, they become your directions;

Watch your directions, they become your destiny.
