March is the month of college offers, and this month is my lucky month. I didn't apply to very tough or high ranking school. The best school I applied was Boston University, and the second was University of Connecticut. At the middle of March, I received the rejection letter from Boston University, I didn't feel too upset about it, and decided to choose Uconn as my college for my next four years.
I told my host dad about my decision, he felt really proud of me, and asked if he can visit Uconn with me during a school day. I was also very excited to see my school, so I answered: “why not tomorrow?” Then he went to check his calendar and said: “Let’s do this!” We decided to go after my morning classes, and he came to pick me up at 11:30.
It took us an hour and a half to get there, so before I left school, I bought myself a sandwich and him a cheese burger in school cafeteria. He wore a suit at that day, he didn't usually wear them so I noticed that he treated this tour very important. During the way, he told me he signed me up a tour lead by Uconn students, they would show us around the campus, and explain the whole school for us. The tour started at 1:30, there were two students lead our group of people.
To my surprise, one of them was Chinese! During this tour I get to know that my college has eight cafeteria, it has enough dorm room for all the undergraduates to live, and it also has bus to New York, Boston, and Rhode Island. After the tour, my host dad took me to the bookstore of Uconn, and bought me an Uconn sweatshirt! He said it was a gift to congrats me, and I promised I would come back to visit him in the future.
This month, I also went to my friend Andy’s house in Boston. He studies in Merrimack college and has a sister who studies in Suffolk University. That Saturday there were also one Thai couple in his house, we did a lot of things together. There is a very famous dish in Thailand which is pineapple fried rice, but we tried to make rice inside of a pineapple. Andy’s friend Elliot, who was really good at cooking, searched the way to make pineapple rice online, and after an hour, it came out very tasty.
The Thai couple then started to cook curry for us. I have heard that curry is very hot, but I usually eat Japanese curry which is not hot at all, so I don’t how hot can the Thai food be. It actually came out very hot, but perfect to eat with rice. In that Saturday, we also played puzzle, made ice cream, watched movies and shared different traditions together.
It’s so relax to chill after I got admission from the college I like!
