VSA Choir Forever!

Some of the pictures from Culture Night came out, and they make us look so legit!

I can’t even begin to describe how much I love hanging out with the friends I’ve met in clubs. Just this week, VSA choir hung out not once, but TWICE,  just because we missed each other. It’s only been a week or two since we last saw each other, but we couldn’t go on without a reunion, so we had one! On Wednesday, we went out for dinner, karaoke, and boba. Nothing feels better than singing (or screaming) your heart out to 90s music, except maybe singing Vietnamese love ballads, which we did plenty of. The following day, we went out for lunner (lunch+dinner) right at Thai Spice right before the VSA meeting. Choir is a relatively new part of VSA that usually comes to play only around Culture Night season, but I think they’re talking about making it a year-round group! This is exciting news to me for two reasons. 1. I love singing, and 2. I love people who love singing! I’m incredibly glad I got over my initial shyness and decided to join clubs relevant to my interests because it has really made all the difference in how much fun I have being a part of it all.

It makes me really sad to think that this year is over because it means that some of the friends I’ve met this year are graduating. Luckily, I’ll have one last chance to say goodbye to them when VSA Choir sings the anthems at the opening of V-grad. As amazing as this year has been it’s all quickly coming to an end. :c

    V-grad is a graduation for the Vietnamese students at UCI that sign up for this ceremony. It’s separate from UCI’s commencement graduation, and much smaller. It highlights the Vietnamese background of the graduates with traditional, lion, and modern dancing, and keynote speeches! I don’t know much else about it, but I’m really looking forward to experiencing it myself. :3
