Hello, all. My name is Stephanie Thao. I am a senior majoring in Information Studies.
The beginning of summer break was busy, but as time went on, it was not as hectic. The next week after I went back after finishing my finals, we had our family reunion. Everyone in my family came to town. We played games and competed against each other. It was fun and hot. Unfortunately, my nephew who would graduate in a few days sprained his ankle while playing soccer. Supposedly one of my younger nephews pushed him accidentally, but we are not sure. No one was blamed.
The next day, we took several family pictures. It only included my siblings, six sisters and two brothers, and my parents. This was the first time that we have taken a picture as a family in a long time. From what I remember, the last time we took a full family picture was more than ten years ago, and it did not even include my younger sister.
Then, my nephew graduated high school. Everyone went, including his dad’s side of the family. We all fit almost three rows. A few days later, we went on a mini-vacation to Dallas, Texas. The main thing I will remember is the confusing highways and traffic. We went shopping, to the zoo, Ikea, and played a card game, Ultimate Werewolf, at the hotel.

Aside from my summer break, I love eating snacks, candy, and desserts. My sister found a recipe for a Chinese-style sponge cake a few years ago. She usually decorates it and I make it. It tastes light and not too sugary. It is a cake that my parents especially love and other family members like it too. However, my brother does not like it because he says that it tastes like nothing.
Anyway, this is an introduction about me. I look forward to working with everyone in the class.
