So this is it. The last blog. It was fun writing for the past year, and I hope that some of it was useful and if not, that it was at least an interesting read. Or helped you fall asleep. Whichever :). Anyway, I wish you all the best for your grad school experience. As for me, I'm leaving the Twin Cities and moving south for my internship. After four years in the same place, I am looking forward to something new.
So, good luck with everything!!!!!!!!!! And remember to have some fun while you're here :).
Dear Prospective International Student,
Congratulations on getting accepted into the program(s) you applied to. And now, comes the decision-making time...or not...
Do you like to make a presentation in front of lots of people?
...I guess many people do not like that. For me, it is the same thing...
I feel nervous and my brain becomes white during presentation!!!
But, in the US, I often feel that American people are very good at making
Why are they??
There are some useful tips to prepare for your presentation which I've heard from American people!
So, my journey of improving my presentation has started since I entered U
Officially 2 weeks without my computer, and seriously jonesing... anyway, if you don't have a personal computer, what resources are available on campus?
This week's entry is supposed to be the fun, free entry, but I want to talk about a not so fun topic: safety.
Before I came here, I would never thought that I have to deal with so many things with tax...
However, in America tax is a big thing...
For example, the first time when I bought a meal in McDonald's, I was wondering that why the price I pay is different from the price posted on board? Did they calculate it wrong?
Nevertheless, the truth is that in the U.S. the price you saw usually doesn't include tax, so when you pay for it, you have to add 7.025% as the sale tax in most of cases. However, thanks to the cold weather here, there is no tax for buying clothing!! So... girls, GO shopping in Minnesota!!!
I found many coffee shops in the United States. Before I came to the US, I did not like coffee because it makes me awake and nervous. Also, in Japan, you can have more variety in tea.
So, exploring these coffee shops in the United States is also new experience to me!
