Get it? My friends mean the world to me… hahaha

But in all seriousness, my friends are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. Some I’ve grown up with, some I’ve only met this year - but all of them mean a lot to me. I can always count on my friends to have a good time, to make me laugh, and to cheer me up if I’m sad. They are always willing to help me when I need something, and I would do anything for them as well. Everyone knows I’m very protective of my friends, and if anyone does anything to hurt them… well you better watch out

Anyway…pictures!

Dear Mommy & Daddy,

I know I may not show it all of the time, but you guys mean the world to me and I love you both so much. I am so indescribably thankful for everything you have done for me, and I’m really sorry I don’t always treat you with the respect that I should.

I appreciate everything you risked and sacrificed for me. I am greatly inspired by both of your lives - to know where you came from, a world of war and hardships I could never understand, makes me appreciate my life so much more. I want to repay you for the privileged life you gave me, and the only way I know how is to make you proud. It is one of the biggest motivations in my life and I really don’t want to let you guys down.

Thank you for everything. For supporting me through college and graduate school, for reassuring me when my confidence is low, for loving me unconditionally, and for encouraging me to live the best life I can. You guys are more than understanding, and it breaks me heart when I make you sad.

I can’t wait until I can make you both really proud, and repay you for everything you’ve done for me.

Love,
Mai Tram

What: Lanvin x HM silk dress, grandma’s vintage purse by Cinderella
Where: RH Restaurant in West Hollywood (Yelp review here)

This was interesting segment on the TV show, “What Would You Do?” about attitudes towards interracial dating. They hired actors to portray the interracial couple as well as antagonists who publicly denounce the interracial relationship. The point of the segment was to examine how people react when confronted with negative attitudes towards interracial dating.

Unfortunately, the video’s all chopped up but this is the only version I could find to embed. Anyway, for me the most interesting case starts around the 6:20 mark…
