Trip to Seattle

Due to how fast life has been this past year, I have only been thinking about my future. As a passing thought, I realized that I have been living in New York City for 11 months.

At the end of November, for Thanksgiving, Anthony and I went to Seattle to meet his family (I had met his mom once before).

I definitely prefer Seattle to New York. I even thought I might want to move there. In my opinion, the exhibitions and UI/UX at their museums (we went to the Museum of Pop Culture and the Chihuly Garden and Glass) were fantastic, plus the graphic designs around the city were more modern than those in New York.

On Thanksgiving,
we were in Kennewick

The day before Thanksgiving we drove to Kennewick, where one of Anthony’s older sisters lives with her family. It took about five hours from Seattle by car. There were about 20 adults and kids in total, and I was so nervous because I am not good at talking with those whom I am not well acquainted with and I am still not confident that I speak English very well. However, we had a delicious Thanksgiving meal and we also went shopping at 7 a.m. on Black Friday. I had good experiences with American culture on this trip.
