First I thought I wouldn’t be able to join any sports because I’m not good at them, but I worked hard and joined the cross-country team and it’s really helped me to make new friends.

 How are you dealing with the homesickness?

Homesickness is always a problem so I realized the best way to get over it is to get myself occupied as much as I can, but there is no way to not think about it, especially when I talk to my friends and my parents using the internet or the telephone.

I love to eat Fast Food, but I have to be careful or I’ll get fat!
