Globalization at University.

I skipped ESL and I became to hate myself. That’s miserable. I completely attended SS class after lunch. I wanna sleep during class, lol, though a new topic, Occidentalism is interesting. I have to know about it more thr reading materials.
I talked about summer vacation to Glen. He replied to one of us da traveling possibility of danger is up to u. He means, the brighter, the safer we walk around da big city, even NY.

Now I’m cooking vegetable curry as dinner. I know I have more free-time than other international students except for TNP. For most PSU students have job or part time job when they are free every week. In fact, two friends of mine work then; one is Heuy working at restaurant at da downtown, another is Dan I met when playing b-ball, but I don’t know where he works. Anyway here is a big difference between America & Japan.

Although there are few cases that da grown-up who has job in da society goes to university, here is it normal, or not rare. Thus many guys are studying at the wide age-range. It is fact for me that I don’t care da age of students when I arrived here.

USの大学ほど生徒の年齢の幅が広いことはないだろう。現に、先日BDを迎えたクリントは、26歳で、当然PSUを昨年卒業しており、今仕事(バイトみたいな事務的なモノ)をし、今夏より日本で念願の英語の先生になる。でも彼と同じ高校を卒業したカイルは、今PSUのSophomore、2年生。彼は高卒後一度職に就いたものの、やはり大学に通いたいと決意しPCC(Portland Community Collegeなハズ)の生徒として今に至る。

PSUは、「各タームの単位数×4」が年間の取得単位数になる。日本のように4年間で卒業しようとすると、各ターム「12」以上必要になる。しかし、ヒトによってはターム全てを休んで、帰国するヒトもいる。必修科目が一つのタームに重なり「18」というとんでもない数字を目にするひともいる。 そうなれば、取れる単位も、忙しくなりすぎて手が回らず、Non-Passになってしまうことも・・・。必然的に「Super Senior」の出来上がり。
