I had performances of school musical which is "The Wedding Singer" in this month. I performed three nights from August 5th to 7th. M I had started rehearsals since I came here. The beginning of study abroad, my Australian friend pushed me to have an audition for the school musical. I didn't know what it was like but I tried it and passed the audition. From then my musical life was started. I had rehearsals every Wednesday and I also had holiday rehearsals. It was so hard for me because I had never belonged to the musical. But I really appreciate that she pushed me to do this thing because I could make precious treasure of my life. I'll never forget this experience. I also appreciate my host family that they gave me the opportunity to do that. And I'm glad that all of my Japanese class mates were coming to see my show . Thank you so much everyone for coming for me. xoxo. I had busy life so I'm kind of empty now... ;(((

I have spent nearly a month in Australia. My host family has been so kind to me - like a real family- so I'm enjoying my life here. In my host family, there is the mother, the father, and their three daughters. Last weekend, I went to the beach and a large river with them. I did jet skiing and swam for a long time. I also did some surfing. I will never forget this. Also, in Gleeson College, thanks to my host sister Jessica, I made lots of friends and I was able to fit right in. In school, I eat with my Gleeson friends during recess and lunch time. As you can guess, I am having a good time here in Australia. I am hoping that I’ll improve my English skills steadily, too.
