I had three options for this summer: 1) interning in the US, 2) interning in Beijing, and 3) traveling with my dad. After asking around and careful consideration, my dad and I decided that I should go back to the States and gain work experience. However, I haven’t secured a place to stay in Long Beach, and I told my dad that I didn’t want to go back to La Jolla to get my car. All of these made him worry that I had been deceived by this opportunity. Accepting this offer felt more right, so I will learn to trust Him knowing that He plans the future and always prepares for us. In the meantime, I have been replying to posts on craigslist. Hopefully I will secure a safe place to stay for the next two and half months.
