It’s a wrap.
2013.5.7 - Officially retiring from golf!
The past 13 years has been an interesting ride, and i’m now ready to move on to something new.
I got into my school’s static show (portfolio review/exhibition)!
MAY 21 - AUGUST 25 - HONG KONG aka home sweet home.
For the first time in xx years, my sister is staying in HK during the summer!
And man, I need to find an internship/job. I have been sending out my cover letters and resume. :/
Came back from Arizona last night. I had the worst 2 rounds of golf in my college golf career. I couldn’t explain what happened. I missed a lot of short putts, and I was terrible at bunker shots. Coach told me that she didn’t see ” the Lyra I used to see on the course” and that “I gave up”. None of those made senses to me. I’m not the kind of person who gives up, and the first statement was …. To be honest, I’m not sure how she sees me.
At the end of the tournament, my teammate’s dad felt that he needed to give a lecture on life. He said I should be happy that I had a chance to play college golf, because he never got the chance. He also told me that I needed to be more positive. For someone who doesn’t know me, and someone who asked me if dreamt in Chinese or English, please mind your own business and move along. Yes, your daughter played better in this tournament, but it doesn’t mean you have the rights to tell me what to do with my life. This is the only time she beat me. Plus, she still couldn’t break 80. And unlike you, I would never ask you if you dreamt in Spanish or English. You think you are better than me, because you have a US passport? Isn’t a bit immature for someone in their late forties to argue with a twenty-one?
The worst thing was coach actually agreed with him. Instead of defending myself and argued with the “big kid” , I didn’t say anything, and cried. Until my eyes got all puffy and completely slanted. Seriously, why do people think that they should give people advice when they absolutely know nothing about them? And expect them to take their advice and change instantly?
is it wrong to be realistic?
