Birthday Party

留学の一つのいいことは、時差でお誕生日を二回祝うことができます。本当の誕生日の日 (実は中国で生まれたので、日本と同じ時間帯) もインターネットでアメリカにいるお友達及びご家族と次の日にも祝います。大学のお友達と一緒にパティーを過ごした日の後、家族のお友達の家に訪れ、またお誕生日パティーが行われます。私の日本人のお友達を感謝しています。The cool thing about being abroad for your birthday is that you get to celebrate it twice; first on the actual birthday (I was born in China so it is the same time zone), and then a day later with all my family and friends in the U.S. via the internet. The day after my birthday celebration with my school friends, I went over to my family friend’s house for a good evening. I am so thankful for all my nice friends here in Japan.

天気がちょうどよくて、頭が良くてかわいいボーダーコリーのパロちゃんという犬を散歩しました。その公園には猫が少なくとも20匹いるので、全部触れることができて、とても大好きになりました。近くに住めばいいでしょうね。The weather was really good and we were able to walk her dog, Paro. She is a Border Collie who is super smart and cute. I loved the park we were in because there are so many cats, like at least 20, so I got to pet them all. I really wish I lived near that park.

それに、ケーキを買ってくれて、驚かせました!なんとなく私の好きな果物がイチゴだと知っていたかびっくりしました。そのストローベリーショートケーキはすごく美味しかったです!She even surprised me with a cake! Somehow she knew my favorite fruit was strawberry, as it was strawberry shortcake. It was so delicious!

もうすぐ帰国しちゃうので、しばらくお友達に会えなくても、ラインで連絡を保ちます。みんな、私のお誕生日を楽しくしていただき、ありがとうございました!I won’t see my family friends for awhile now as I have to go back home soon. But I probably will see them next year, so until then I will keep in touch on Line. Thanks to everyone who made my birthday weekend special!
