Hello everyone! this is my second term. Actually It almost 2 months have passed since I’ve written my first term and I stayed so many good times during this period. I wanna share my all of my stories with you guys but it’s too many and also I wanna talk about my school life so I’ll share you a few part of them;)
I went to homecoming on 1st of Oct. I known my Japanese friends said “my hoco sucked” and “my hoco was great!!”. So I was worried about what if my hoco was boring?….. but it was fun. I really enjoyed the night.
My high school’s gym was covered with white curtain and black lights was set up in the gym. There is a DJ booth in the front and it played popular dance music, 90’s music and when it played slow music, some couples were dancing and boyfriend held girlfriend tight in his arm…. So jealous.
I was like “omg, the ticket costs $15 to go hoco! it’s pretty expensive.” but it was fun so I don’t care;)
During hoco week we have special day everyday until hoco night and we go to school wearing common clothes like all black and Hawaiian.
2 months have passed since I’ve gone to school for the first time. I couldn’t go to my class without school map also the way to move class, lunch time… everything was different with Japanese school life so I was so confusing. But now, I’m used to it.
I feel during the class is so free. At my art class, the teacher plays music from youtube everyday and we can eat and drink in most of class. I don’t eat during all of my class but I like to eat cookies when I am drawing at my 3rd hour art class:))
I use smartphone a lot in my classes. Some teachers use the app called “Google classroom” to tell us about the quiz, turn my assay, and my teacher posts some links of online textbook so we don’t often use books. So we usually use own smartphone to search and do my homework. Also teachers don’t use white board because they use word and project it onto the screen.
We have A,B and C lunch and It is divided every 30 min. I have C lunch with my exchange student friends. of course I did’t have friends to eat together and I don’t have same class and even lunch time with host sis so I’m almost alone but I don’t wanna eat in the bathroom like some hokusei’s senpai so I went to cafeteria and sat next to a girl who was eating alone. I think the most important things is to thinking ” I’m a exchange student and I don’t have friend yet. So what?”. You must’t think it forever because you wouldn’t make friends but first week of school, you have to think about it. Thanks to this, I could challenge many things.
After school, I don’t active but I go to dance lesson every Tuesday with host sis. I’ve been learning hiphop now and I’ve done it since long time ago so I’m glad to start it again:)
And we sometimes do bondfire and invite some friends. We sit around the fire and eat some snacks, talk, and toast marshmallows.
Actually It was Halloween last week. I put on skull make up and clothes, my sis dressed up as a princess.
My first trick or treating was pretty fun. Many houses were decorated with Halloween stuff and some of them put too concentrate on Halloween.
I thought we bring a small jack o’lantern
basket but sis brought me a pillow cover. We put concentrate on Halloween, too haha.
My host family take me some events every month. On Sep, we went to the Renaissance festival. It looks like the old American downtown and fairlyland.
Also on Oct, we went to horse festival in Ohio because we have houses so my host mom bought many horse stuff there. I found many cowboys. They were so subdued.
Next event is….. yes!!! Thanksgiving day!!! Actually my birthday and thanksgiving day are same day so I will celebrated with thanksgiving’s traditional meals:)) It’s gonna be precious moment, isn’t it???
Thanks for reading. See you next my turm( ˘ω˘ )
