Inclement weather in UMD

The weather got worse and more freezing this week. It snowed and hard to walk everywhere I went, and I slipped on the ice several times in one day. Thanks God, it happened only sometimes but not too often. I hoped there was no one watching when I was slipping, which indeed made me embarrassed so so much.

Due to the inclement weather, I didn't need to attend UMD this Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you checked the UMD homepage this week, you would find that it showed "Universityclosing at 2:00 p.m. today, Feb. 13. Classes will be cancelled." on Tuesday noon and "Today, Wednesday, February 14,2007, the University of Maryland will be closed due to inclement weather." in the early morning on Wednesday. It means I don't need to attend UMD; it is really good news for me to get more sleep!

It is my first experience of touching snow and walking on the ice. It is also my first time not to attend UMD because of the inclement weather in the U.S.

The start..

Before coming here, I have had a master degree and nice job in Taiwan. I work hard and enjoy my life per day per year. One day, however, I feel my life is so boring and nothing can interest me any more in my country. Finally, I choose to enter UMD to start my new life in the United States.

UMD is really a good place and my best choice, not only because it is the neighborhood of Washington D.C., the capital of U.S.A., but also for it is the best university in MD and Top20 in the nation.

Woops, I almost forget to tell you what my name is. My name is Yu-Hung Wang and you can call me Phillip also. I am used to be called Phillip with my American friends indeed. I hope everyone will have a good time here. Best wishes.
