粂井塾 in America

アメリカ滞在中に粂井塾を開講することができました!

講座では、日本のカレールーを使ったカレーの作り方を教えた後、みんなでカレーを食べながら和室や一汁三菜など日本の伝統文化を説明しました。参加者と話している中で、アメリカでは両親の帰宅がとても早く、仕事帰りに部活の試合に両親が応援に来たり、夫が妻並み、妻以上に家事をしている家庭もたくさんあるなど、日本とは違った家事体系があることがわかり、とてもいい文化だなと感心しました。

The last blog of studying abroad in America

This is the last time to write about my life in America.

At first, about graduation, it was very impressive. American graduation is much different from the Japanese one. It was very hilarious. The audience were whistling, clapping, and cheering up, and Queen’s songs were playing as BGM. It was so much fun. I like the Americans one better. After graduation, I went to Grad Night. It is a party for seniors which was held by parents from 9 pm to 5 am. We played a lot of things such as a bouncy house, poker, blackjack, dance, cone hole, drawings, and so on there. Thanks to our parents, we had a good and fun time.

the day before graduation, my friends held a surprise party for me. we played basketball, pickleball, trampolines, bonfire, and talked a lot. I’m so happy to have amazing friends.

at the last night in America, we had a bonfire at the beach. so many people came there for me. I was so happy about it but also so sad. it was super hard to say goodbye to my friends. I cried a lot. I miss my friends already.

I had an amazing time in America. I made a lot of great memories and friends. I won’t forget and already miss them. I’m so glad to study abroad at the age of now. I recommend studying abroad during high school. I wanna say thank you to all of the people who made my life in America great.

My super irregular studying abroad blog 4 -1/20

I rode an ambulance four the first time in my life! I strained my back and couldn’t move at all haha. The ambulance was so comfortable and the doctor was so kind.

I went breakfast restaurant with my friend. The meal was so much!! (two waffle sandwiches three pancakes) It was so good though.

We helped my friend’s homework for photography. He took so many good pics of us.

 

I cooked Oyako-don. For it, I bought dashi, mirin, sticky rice, soy source, and so on.

I taught my host fam origami. That was so fun.

I went snowboarding for the first time in America with my fam!

I found kotatsu in America!!! My friend who is half Japanese had it.

I ate Japanese ramen and taiyaki in Seattle with my host sis! There were so many Japanese in the restaurant. They said “Irasshaimase!” when I entered.

I stayed at a so good resort with my friend’s fam and relative during 12/28-1/2

I went pool, hot spa, snowboarding twice, skating, snow tube, and so on!

I had a great time there with them!!

we got stuck in the car about 2 hours and called a tow track cuz my friend put gasoline in the diesel car by mistake hahaha.

That was my first time to use a tow truck.

My first-time ambulance and tow truck was in America! That’s so funny hahahaha

I hope I won’t ride them again.

(挫折をなんて言えばいいかわからないので、いい言葉あったら教えてください)

 

 

first month in the US

it’s passed a month since I came to the US.I’m not sad and not homesick. I think I’m a person doesn’t feel discouraged.

By the way, the school has started. at first, I struggled at my school because of no friends, and no understanding the classes but the students were so kind of me to understand classes and to make friends so now, I’m enjoying my school life so much. I started tennis and join the local soccer club. My body is getting muscular, not fat because I play sports every day and I take the athletic conditional class.

I sometimes cook dinner for my family and I have come to like cooking. Before this, I made curry, carbonara, Yakisoba,  and Okonomiyaki. My family liked all of them.

The American school is so different from Japanese one. I prefer American school because we can be free and can do many things (more than Keio shiki!!!!!) and I did fugitive yesterday!!! I love it!!

I went camp with my dad and bro. it was so fun and I wanna go again!!

At last,

先日(2018年8月4日)は北海道札幌市で、『お手伝いと「ありがとう」で育つ未来力』の講座のスペシャルゲストとして、北海道に住むお母さんたちにお話させていただきました。

家事を仕込まれて、いやいややっていたけど、

沢山の力がついて、今は感謝していること。

家事は、家族でありがとうを言い合うチャンスをくれること、

家事は生きる力を育むことを、お話しさせていただきました。

 

若いお母さまがたから沢山質問をいただきました。

最後の質問は、「親から受けたことでよかったことは何ですか?」

「無条件の愛を受けたことと、

いい意味で、放っておかれたことです」

貴重な機会をありがとうございました。

 

夜はスタッフの方々との懇親会で、美味しい海の幸を

沢山いただきました。

 

他にも世界をリアカーを引きながら歩いて探検している方と一緒に

シュノーケリング(夜の積丹半島 夜光虫)をしたり、

サーフィン、豚丼など北海道を満喫しました。
