I really like everybody in my family. They treat me as their son, brother. I really appreciate. If there is a problem we always talk about it. I really like that I can talk with them about everything. I wish I could get to this family early.
Now we are in the midst of the Christmas season! If you have never seen the 1989 movie, "Christmas Vacation", with Chevy Chase, find some time over the holiday to rent or buy it and share laughs with your host family!
My personal life here in the US has been pretty good. I have made really close friends, some Americans but many of my friends are also exchange students. I go with them to do fun stuff. We go bowling, we go to the cinema and do all kinds of stuff.
Students from Norway and Sweden 'recently' enjoyed some time on the river in Columbus, Mississippi participating in water sports. Activities for the day included inner tubing, water skiing, knee boarding and soaking up some warm Southern sunshine.
I am a single mom of a son who just moved away for his freshman year in college. We experienced the joy of hosting an exchange student last year when my son was a high school senior, and I was toying with the idea of doing it again. But this year would be different since I do not have my own student living with me anymore.
