Six weeks have passed by, we have already been adapted to the life gradually in China. To think back the life in America, I still feel it was yesterday, the fantastic memories let menot forget those special six weeks!
I still remember when I arrived there from the start, I almost did not want to do anything. I just wanted to go back to China, to meet my family, to have a big traditional meal. But for now, I really can't wait to go to university abroad. During this trip, I got new experience, I got new feelings, I got new family!
Everyone is like that, when you arrive in a new country, such as: England, Japan, Canada and also America. You may think ninety percent of this country is better than your country. As I was staying at there for two or three weeks, I told my dad that the American school' s educational system is much better than Chinese, and how relaxed the American students are! But my dad gave me a lesson, he said' No doubt the American educational system is good, but actually the suitable for you is the best! ' We should' t only take the things' advantages, we also need to know their disadvantages clearly and deeply! Meanwhile, my dad explained that sentence to me' Under this Chinese circumstance, if you chose that kind of system, you would be the real loser.' All is because that is not suit for China. So, in my next life, whatever is studying or dealing with affairs, I need to choose the most befitting for myself.
What was the biggest problem about my American life? That must be the food! When I was in America, my host took me and Katherine to the Chinese restaurant for three times. Although it was not very authentic, I was not hungry any more. But we couldn't have Chinese meal everyday, except the Chinese meal, I really regret I didn't learn how to cook.
Now, I have already come back, I realize it is high time that we should learn how to cook, and also how to take care of myself. That will be a good base for my future life in university.
In this trip, there was also one thing that can't let me forget! That is my host family! During this 42 days getting along with, I got a number of the ways to get on with Americans. There was not any blood relationship between us, but they still treated us like family. My host family is like this to do so, from this I can know my real parents even spend more time and love taking care of me. I should study harder, listen to their words and don' t let them down at the end.
America gave me good memories, gave me useful feeling. I hope through this, I can be better in 2 years and get the things which I want! Fighting!
