• Hi! This is Shiori. When I came here, it’s already 4 month!!! I can’t believe that. Times fly fast.
I came to Green Bay, Wisconsin. Everything is different from Japan. The flight Chicago to Green Bay, I missed my airplane. It was really terrible. This is my first impression for America. ‘cause I couldn’t tell co-worker about I got jet lag. But now I’m fine. I’m still alive. Haha Okay. I tell you my American life. My school in here has almost 2000 students. Have you ever heard that!? Every students move their own classroom every hour. So every day is like festival!! Teachers give me a lot of homework which need computer. But I cannot use that very well. So it is hard for me. Orz
And here is really cold. Now it’s -４０℃ outside. We cannot go school. So today and tomorrow are no school! It’s impossible in Okinawa. Right? When I was in Okinawa, I was dreaming snow. But now I hate snow and cold weather. Lol ‘cause I’m Okinawan!! Mum… And they have many events like thanks giving, X’mas, homecoming, basketball, football game. etc… It was pretty good. And food!! When I came here, I gained 5 or 6 ponds. It’s really sucks. But I cannot stop eating. It’s not healthy. But it’s good. Sometimes I wanna eat Japanese food.
Btw last month I visited NEW YORK BIG APPLE. It was really awesome. I went broad way, times square, the American museum of national history which was used the movie night at the museum, central park, SoHo which is shopping street, statue of liberty. Whatever. It’s sound cool. Ha? And in March I’m gonna go to LA with my host family. I’m so excited!!!!
At the end, I’m so appreciate with my parents, friend in Japan and here, host family, friends abroad, ISE. For everything. It’s really good experience for me. I have only 6 month I can stay and study in here. But when I’ll be back japan, I WILL be big girl. It mean only inside. Not outside. Seriously. Anyway I hope someone who read my essay will think dreaming to the USA. Bye-bye
