  • Dear Edwin,

I’m lucky that all my family members with me. But I still can feel, the emotion in your words that you really missing your home and your mom. These really touch my heart.

    An Oral History with ZhuangZhi Lin

    The first time I met him on the day I start my seventh-grade class. He is tall and skinny, small head, and really small eyes. His voice is quiet and calm. He is a nice person. Anything you want...

    • I am excited about your oral history with your friend, ZhuangZhi because I am also Chinese and it reminds me how I made friends back in the day and how things change because of COVID and still seeing you have a good relationship with your friend.
      one thing I learned from the oral history that stood out for me is: “Basically, in our neighborhood, the policeman or security guard will catch everyone who goes outside without a ticket. And that ticket is for all the families to go out and buy food but each time can only go out for one person. For some time of emergency, they will put an extra metal gate to block all the buildings people live in. Make sure nobody runs out secretly.” I think this is intelligent because that is a way to control the virus to spread to more people and make sure everyone is safe and china is the only country that is doing that.
      Your oral history project connects to my own experience. During COVID, I can’t go out too and I have to stay at home and text my friend online. Thanks for your work on this project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I want to know more about how u and your friend are doing during this pandemic.

    • Dear Xue Feng Zheng,
      I was excited while reading your Oral history with your friend ZhuangZhi Lin, Even if am not Chinese I really like the interview hearing you guys speaking in your native’s language makes me proud and also because I like the language, to be honest, am always watching Chinese drama even if I don’t entirely understand every word.

      I have learned that in your friend’s neighborhood that policeman will catch anyone without a ticket to go out, it must be hard for him and for his family to only have one ticket to use.

      Your oral history connects to me and my friend’s experience during the COVID19 because any of us can’t get out when we want to, but it is a bit different because she and I don’t need a ticket to go out. I look forward to reading another story about your friend’s experience or yours. I will like to hear some Chinese conversations between you and your friend next time because I think that was the best part in your oral history.
      👍👍😎

    • Hey Xuefeng,

      Really interesting project! I love learning about how different countries reacted to COVID. And it’s interesting to see that a lot of people in China were willing to isolate, while many Americans didn’t want to. And I totally agree that the actual interview is the easiest part of an interview-based story. Again, great work!

    I am really like your podcast because there’s a artifact on my bedroom door too, and my mom let me be careful for it. And it also has lot of meaning for my family.
    One aspect of your podcast that stood out for me was “There’s a piece of art on my living room and if you walk near it, you will hear my mom screaming, “Don’t go close by the pi…Read More

    • Dear Xue Feng,
      I am interested your podcast because because you do the interview with the people in the street. But you don’t do the interview in the paragraph. But this show you do a hard work.
      One aspect of your podcast that stood out for me was “ It’s about Chinese culture and Buddhism.” I think this is important because most people didn’t care about history. This show you really know the history of China. And this important because most people didn’t like or didn’t care about the Artifact in own countries.
      I am really impressed about this Artifact it’s like very important for you. This shows us that artifact back to the Chinese history. this will the important thing of your life, because you show us the story how your grandmother got it. Now the family inherited with you. You will save it to generation after generation Now the family is inherited with you.
      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I think you didn’t tell us all the history about this Artifact. This Artifact looks like important for Chinese and it’s back to the history.

  • Dear Diana,

    I am interested in your post because the problem you talking about in your post is very serious and made me think a lot. One thing you said out for me is ” A Lot of people suffer from depression just because of life in general or there going through stuff at home.” I think this is a very important issue, because around years, more and…Read More
