its on the third day since i arrived in the states. we went to this winter wonder land downtown in chicago today. we went there on exactly the same day as last year too. i thought it was crazy. i really felt like i came back!
danny, me and others had some stomach problems from the food that we ate last night. we had to go to the bathroom every 2 hours or something. lol everyone believes that it was CHICKEN!!! we all feel better now. ;)
one more funny thing happened tonight. one of danny's relatives is a taxi driver and he took us to the place and waited to pick us up at night. when he was waiting for us, this one black guy asked him if the taxi was available. of course he said he couldnt. but the black guy misunderstood the fact that he rejected him because he was a racist. they started swearing each other. i was like..... i didnt know how to react. i saw the dark side of america. people shouldn't always think they are discriminated by people.

this is a picture of some students i teach. we had a christmas lesson today! they are very cute ;D

after that i went to my friend's place and had 'a pot' party. can you see the ingredients? the meat inside is hormone of beef!! it was actually really tasty.
we were all in the same class when we were in the 2nd year of high school except ken's girlfriend. its been almost 10 years since those days... i think its great that we still keep in touch and get together sometimes.

i visited my friend from college with my friend. she was my roommate when we were studying at nottingham uni. as exchange students. and now she married. lol... time goes fast!! i attendted her wedding ceremony and the party this past summer. it was awesomely good!! but the friend who i visited with couldnt go. i guess she was eating pad thai in thailand... lol they showed her the video of that day instead. they are living with her husband's family. its not a common style to do that in japan anymore. i hope she is getting along with them ;)  やすよちゃん、まこちん、またお邪魔します★★

i bought this book called 'ii kotoba wa ii jinsei wo thukuru' today. i actually bought this for my friend to send it as a christmas present lol. she is in england and studying there. i read half of it. it was about ' how you behave or speak out are leading your life either in a good way or bad way'. i totally agreed with this auther. i tend to think in a negative way and nothing is good about that. i think im sending this to her and getting one more for me. ;) i highly recommend that you should read this!!
