Now that I have received my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from Brown University on May 28, I am officially a college graduate!
After we were done packing four years worth of stuff into seven boxes and one suitcase, my family went on a month-long vacation around the US.
For 35 days, we went to eight states and a few more cities, here are 21 of my favorite pictures from the trip. (Not pictured here are countless family selfies and food pictures to obviously prove our Asian-ness. But hey, at least we didn’t carry selfie stick around!)
The weather may be a tad bit disappointing but still very much enjoyed the view, Newport.
