I have been here for more than a month and a half and I can’t believe that one sixth of my experience has already gone. In these forty-seven days I have done such different and beautiful activities, some of which I will not have the possibility to repeat once in Italy: I have gone zip lining, to the Boy Scouts, to a couple of football games; I will go to Niagara Falls and to many other places.

Here is really easy to make new friends, thanks, among all, to meetings such as the ones of young life or of the youth group, thanks to clubs and sports in school. In less than two months I have found friend who have always helped and always will help me, thanks to whom I have overcome several difficulties, for example the change of host family. My new family is one of the best I could wish for, they are really kind and nice and they will let me do a lot of activities, to permit me to enjoy this year as much as possible.
The school, despite its – unforeseen – difficulty, gives me the opportunity to experiment a large number of new things exclusive of the United Stated, such as the spirit week (which I loved), the homecoming game and the prom. I am excited about what I will do during this year, so as for what I have already done and for the new person who will come back to Italy:
This will be one of the most beautiful periods of my life, but also one of the most difficult…
… which will teach me a lot of things, will change my character (in a positive way) and will make me an adult, ready and able to live on his own.
