Wan-Yi: A beach picnic with a sunset!
Jon: Riding an elephant together in Thailand was awesome.
Wan-Yi: Something sporty and spontaneous, not commonly done. Anything like that is fun.
Funny date stories:
Jon: I thought I was taking her to the number 1 French restaurant in Boston, as advised by multiple rating websites, and it turned out to not even be French…still pretty good, though.
Wan-Yi: I tricked him into trying snake soup.
Wan-Yi: I know more about his than I even know my own! His is smoking…come on Jon tell me mine!
Jon: I obviously don’t pay enough attention to you! I mean, definitely for you someone who isn’t open to other cultures…aka someone who doesn’t like Chinese food.
Advice to freshmen:
Wan-Yi: My advice to freshmen is that everything will be fine. There is no need to freak out, it will all turn out well in the end. Find a good boyfriend and have him do all your homework for you.

Jon: Neither of us really “forced” the issue, it kind of just happened.
Wan-Yi: It’s important to be friends, and that’s how it is for us.
