Almost 5 months since I been here!! It's so fast. Time is fly!! I can't believe that I can stay here as an exchange student only 5 months…
I had many first experience ever only this 5 months. I love American culture, language and atmosphere since I was a child. So this was my dream to go America. I just expected that I'll have good experience in America. But it is not true… of course I had good time here, although I had hard time too. I think I had hard time more than good time. One of my most difficulty is I can't tell people what I feel and what I'm thinking exactly. So it makes me stressful. But people try to understand what I want to say, So they can get it what I said. I'm really happy when I can tell people my feeling.
My favorite time is to hang out with my host family. We do shopping, watching movie, eat outside, watching sports game, just talking stuff like that. They are so nice to me. They treat me like a real family. They are so sweet, I love them. Then we have snow in winter!! So we made snowman and snowball. Also we sliding the road too. I love it. It is so much fun. Sometimes school is cancelled. Because of the snow. I'm sure we have such a experience never ever in okinawa lol
American Xmas was big deal. It really different from Japanese Xmas. It was awesome! I can't never forget one thing . It is about New york trip! I went to New york on December. It was a foreign exchange student trip. I can go many famous place. For example Times square, Manhattan, Central park, China town and so on. It was amazing!! Also I can make many friends around the world on this trip. So it was precious time for me. I have only 5 months left. So I want to have great time more than 5 months that it passed. I hope my English skill become better the end of school year.I'll do my best 5 months left!
