    Hi! Your dad’s Aunt Kathy sent me your blog addie. What a great experience! Jake and I haven’t seen you since our wedding (2002) but look forward to following your adventures. I had to look up what a Pocky is and plan to try some after our next grocery trip.

    Best wishes :: 祝你好运

    Hi Miranda-

    I hadn’t been keeping up with your posts but Judy Carter told me your blog is a “must read.”….she was right! Love your entries, photos, sense of humor, detailed accounts of your experience and yes, especially the sarcasm. We’ve been talking w/Tyler recently about the idea of doing a similar thing…what’s your take? Any advantages to doing it sooner than later? Has AFS been a good organization to work through? Thanks for any advice to sternbergjim@gmail.com. Keep those witty posts coming and you are so adventurous to doing this as a HS sophomore. You rock!

      My Italian friend says:
      dove sei di bello in Italia?

      and the language is coming along okay for me, I had three years of Chinese lessons prior to this. What about you? How’s Italian coming along? thanks for reading my blog!

    Hi Miranda!
    I am thinking of going to China next year (through AFS) but I had a couple of questions. Reading your blog was also very interesting, it seems like you had a lot of fun! Do you think that I can get your email so I can contact you?

    much appreciated :),

    Hey Miranda! I never actually saw you had blog before but I suppose it’s the only one from China! Now I guess you’re totally back home and it may or may not already be on summer break. I’ve got a little less than a month and I can NOT believe it. As I have so many times during this experience, I feel I am quite possibly going insane. I don’t understand how it can be possible. Not only have I came here, but now I have to go back? And get all readjusted again? I’m not sure but it seems it could actually be harder. Anyway, I hope everything’s good for you at home, maybe we can talk (and I can get a chance to read more of this blog? It seems some things have been rather similar, haha, Pocky?^-^) some other time. 或者是,我们可以用汉字写。哈哈,你忘记了多少?
