A month has passed since we came to the US. I have experienced many things so far. I cherish assertively initiating conversation, because I want to make a lot of friends in Pittsburgh. Therefore I joined in two club activities in the beginning of December. Thanks to that, I exchanged contacts and met them after school. It's great fun. I often talk to Benjy who is my conversation partner. It's my sixth time meeting him! I want to keep in touch after returning to Japan. I've had some culture shock in my life, but it has all been a good experience. I want to fully enjoy the rest of the month and interact with a lot of foreigners.
