I am looking forward to meeting new friends
Jan . 2016
It has been four months since I came to Kingston, Canada. It is warmer this year than usual, so I could not see snow here until the end of December. Now, however, it often snows here, so I can see ground covered with much snow. I cannot see a lot of snow in Fukuoka, so I am excited about it.

I had a graduation ceremony last month, and I experienced much farewell for the first time since I came here. Many friends of mine went back to their own countries. I feel sad when I imagine I have to say good-bye to my friends at least two times. But if I stand a different point of view, it is that I can meet another new friends in next session.

I had to move to two host families’ house in a holiday. I had expectation and anxiety of moving to new host family, but as a result, both of them are so kind to me, and I could get good experience because I could see two different host families. Maybe the student who has to move two families was only me. There were Christmas Day and New Year Day in this period. I was glad to spend a time with host family, and it was a great opportunity for me to know how Canadian spent their traditional holiday.

Queens University has a lot of exchange students. In this holiday, I had a chance to join some conversation activities. I was impressed that the students speak English so fluently although they speak English as a second language. These activities stimulated me to study more.

The next session starts next week. I don’t know who my teacher is, and who next classmates are as well. I hope something I cannot expect is waiting for me. Anyway, I will do my best.
