You must be doing well in American School, it must be so much fun to study there, you must be really popular there, it's easy isn't it?
People thought that being an exchange student is all about culinary, travel and party. No, it's not. Being an exchange student is just being the normal kids like another kids do. The difference is I'm an alien here.
The first time I got here, it was really stressful. You know why. But then, some of my friends asked me to go to hangout somewhere. Now I know that being an exchange student to America and to Indonesia it's different. I knew some exchange student who went to Indonesia they could get friends easily because they are the real alien, they are knowable. But for the exchange student to America, it's so much different. Yes, we are aliens. But we were unknowable, people just didn't care who we are. Because in here, there are a lot of ethnics, from ginger to black hair, from light skin to dark skin or from gold hair to grey hair. People didn't really recognize that we are an exchange student until we introduce ourselves to them. Now I know why we can't compare between my exchange year and another exchange student's exchange year. Even though we are in the same place or the same school, we can't just make ourselves feel bad about what we face on. All we can do is just share our stories, learn how another student can get some friends and ask for help to our friends. There must be a way out.
We are here for 10 months only, all of us want to have a great exchange year. Great exchange year starts form ourselves, are we gonna survive from these, or we just wanna stay in our comfort zone. It is our choice. Only think and do nothing really wasting our time. If we want to have a good experience by our own we need to use our time wisely and focus. I know it's hard, guys. Let's work hard together and try our best. This is our year, stop wishing and start doing because your future will thank you for what you doing today.
