Hi hi hi! My name is Autumn and I'm a dreamy writer from Vietnam! Besides my huge (and obvious) passion for writing, I also like reading and cooking (I only cook Asian food though). I love cultures and traditions, so I'm really into majoring in Asian Studies, but I'm also having other options in mind like Media Studies or Econ (I know, who can resist the money-printing major?) And I don't know how to end this bio without sounding awkward so (I guess?) stay put for more posts from me!
Double Major Economics and Japanese
Favorite Thing Right Now
Asian Economy and Japanese Contemporary Literature
I just love my professor and my classmates! (I had to wake up at 7:15 everyday to go to drill, but it was totally worth it) We were so close that we had breakfast together every morning, and called ourselves the Brekky Club!
I've always loved writing scripts and seeing my writing being materialized into several scenes, so I thought this class would be perfect. Also, I'd love to take up some challenges in my second term at Dartmouth!
Japanese literature really is my passion, and in professor Dorsey's class, I got to read many Japanese masterpieces along the history of the Sakura country. Also, professor Dorsey is AMAZING - he is just like our friend!
I had the time of my life during the LSA+ in Tokyo. I learned interesting things about Japanese culture, made close Japanese friends, and improved my Japanese a lot!!

I like the maths - they explain the "common sense" I referred to a lot in ECON 1 in a much more logical way. The professor is great; her instructions are easy to understand, and she always eagers to help us understand the lectures better.
The 10-week term passes by sooo fast! It's not even been 2 months since I first met with my faculty advisor to elect my fall term courses, yet I've already found myself in her office this Tuesday to talk about my winter classes! I chose a pretty safe combination of courses for the fall. I'm currently taking Writing 2, Japanese 1, and Econ 1. I'd already learned a little Japanese before I got here, so I consider Japanese 1 my easiest class (I still have to spend time on it, but not as intensely as my two other classes). The only thing difficult about Japanese 1 is that we have language drill at 7:45 am four times a week, so I really have to carefully plan my schedule to make sure I have at least 7 hours of sleep each day. Other than that, Japanese 1 is amazing! Professor Watanabe is super great, and she knows how to make our class exciting and energize everyone to concentrate in the earliest class of the day. Moreover, I'm really bonding with my classmates. We have breakfast together everyday after drill, and we call ourselves "The Brekky Club!"
