It's Thursday today, soon I will be going to Apple Festival with Ming which he always says will take me too. I am really excited about it and will definitely take tons of pictures and write a new blog. So I just thought it'd be nice to have another blog before that :) So.. here we go!
The third and half day I've been here in the US already. I am still getting used to a lot of things. First is I sometimes really miss the breakfast food we had in Taiwan.. I never thought I'd be missing foods. Can't believe I'd really have a little homesick! Just last night, I couldn't stop but had a little breakdown and cried in the car after I told Jamie I really couldn't stay in library anymore.. It's still scary for me to be around all the Americans.. I seem to be making mistakes a lot, which I really don't like, I keep wishing I could be just normal as everybody and no one would notice I am a foreigner.. But I can't even order food in the restaurant, I could not read the signs at the grocery store and I couldn't even use glue and made my envelope super dirty and ugly..
School has been relentless for Jamie, he has been working hard on homework and mid-terms, we spent some time at the library and when Jamie's in the class, I would be in the library too. I have some initial tests to prepare in order to getting in University of Maryland - the plan me and Ming have for us to be together after this short visit, and is the most mission I am on now! But just reading some academical articles and doing writing practices stressed me horribly.
I felt I was so dumb.
It was only eight o'clock at night and Ming's plan was to stay at the library until 10 or so.. I was already tired to death. I shook my head and wanted to perk up whatever strength I could have. It was so frustrating my concentration was as low as drowning in the pool. I told Jamie I needed to go home eventually, and I was extremely disappointed in myself.
Ming put his hand on my head and looked at me carefully, he wanted me to feel better and know it's okay.
My tears just trembled down..
(Oh wow.. I didn't plan to write this.. Was only going to share the pictures of food we have had in the past few days.. Sorry..)
Jamie really cares for me super very much! Many times at the night, when I moved and woke him up, he would reach his arm to me and faced me to make me feel his love. He seemed to know I had hard time to sleep the past few nights. Most of times he'd just stare at me for no reason.. he would laugh to himself and then told me I was cute. He said I was the nicest boyfriend when I wiped away the sauce on his lip after he ate sandwich.
He giggles every time I translate what my Taiwanese friends say on Facebook to him!
Food Food All in my Stomach!
We have been to one of the dinning halls in School that Jamie always went to. He stopped going there since it would cost me almost $11 to go in. But yesterday Ming's in the mood and decided we would be eating there. It's very like a buffet, a HUGE food place! There were many many good foods and smelled sensationally that made me drool. I didn't want to waste that $11 at all so I just grabbed as much as food as I could and threw them all in my stomach! That 'amazed' Jamie. :P He probably never imagined I would eat that much food. They were really nice!
