I went to school to attend an orientation for freshman(1nen-sei) though I'm senior(4nen-sei). I arrive at school 30 minutes early,so I went to caffee shop near school. I had Chinese green tea. Hmm...Its taste was ok... When I stand front of the entrance, one girl spoke to me. Her name is Leanna. She came to school as a staff of orientation and she is senior :D She introdued me to a boy who is senior too. We listend to theachers talking in a big hall. Then we made group. But my name wasn't on the group list. So I asked her how should I do and she put me in her group! I didn't feel alone because my new 2 friends took care of me from first till last!!! They were soooooo kind to me :) I also made friends with freshman students!!
I think this orientation was same thing as the Entrance ceremony in Japan. BUT!! On stage some teachers were dancing, and during speech, the teacher said "scream!!" and students screamed...Nihonjya shinji rarenai tenshon no takasa de... And We played some games !! nanka yoku wakannai kedo cho- tanoshisou dayo XD

Surprising !!

* * * I'm going to write surprising things* * *

They have Green Tea Flappechino in Starbacks Coffee !!
It was more sweet than that of Japan. But I like it.
I ate SUSHI chocolate !!
It's chocolate which looks like real sushi. I took picture of it. Someday I'll put it on this page.
I finally overcome spiders web...!!
During orientation we put our glass in back yard. When I'm going to use my glass there are spiders web in my glass. But I could use it after I washed it. Neeeeee!!! Cho---sugoku nai???? Minna homete---vvv (wara
Mom and I appeared on TV on our firstday !!!!!
TV camera came to our orientation and he took video when we meet our hostfamily. It's first experience to host a student for my hostfamily, so they and I were interviewed !! I didn't talk anything but smiling...wara A Mom's friend recorded the TV program and she'll copy it on DVD. So you can see it after I go back to Japan :D
I made friends with a Chinese girl !!
I met her in orientation at Fresno. She said "I thought Japanese hate Chinese. But now I know Japanese is friendly and kind. " I was sooooooo happy because I thought Chinese hate Japanese. We talked about war between Japan and China a little. After my English improved I want to talk about it with her...But don't worry! Tina(her name) and I became good friends already !!

I had more things I wanted to write on here...but I forgot !! :P
If I remember them I'll write later.
