I Am From...

By
Dining out in Boston with family and friends.
Mom’s homemade Vietnamese food, bursting with flavor and made with love.
Trying all kinds of unusual foods, like octopus, skate, and lamb.
I am from…
A home filled with pictures, each capturing an everlasting memory.
An English Tudor that I call my home, sweet home.
Souvenirs that are tokens of all the adventures I’ve experienced throughout my travels.
A dining table where my family and I enjoy a delicious meal and discuss the events of the day.
A cozy bed where I ponder, reminisce, and imagine minutes before I fall asleep.
I am from…
”Think before you speak.”
“Summer nights, city lights.”
“Live free, and dance the night away!”
The three words that I can’t live without: “I love you.”
I am from…
A street where houses are diverse, just like the people inside.
All the neighborhood dads competing for the best lawn.
A welcoming, caring community that is one enormous family.
I am from…
The Vietnamese heritage, and proud to be.
World travelers, who’ve seen the best and the worst.
Opinionated debaters, world class shoppers, and social butterflies.
I am from…
Dancing until I drop.
Reading until the sun comes up.
Talking until my phone bill exceeds its limit.
Shopping until my wallet is empty.
Making friends until I’ve met the whole school.
I am from…
A crazy, wise, and loving dad.
A mom who is trendy, understanding, and skillful.
Kim, my intelligent, outgoing, and gorgeous sister.
Individuals that complete me, and guide me throughout life.
People I love beyond compare, and love me back just the same.
I am from…my family.
