Coffee Hour

Today, I had a great coffee hour. I played table tennis with Tomoko, who is MEI 004 student, and Amer. I like table tennis a lot, but I don’t play very well. :-( When the coffee hour was over, Tomoko asked me to play table tennis on Friday after three o’clock. I was very happy she asked me that because I also want to play it after class at sometime. If anybody wants to play it too, you are welcome to join us. ^^

My speaking partner

On sep. 21 we met our partners at 2:00 to 3:30. This is a really good program for me. Actually, I didn’t meet my partner because in the partner program paper said that she can not attend. So I just knew her name--Tiffany and e-mail address. Then I went to lab and sent her an e-mail to her. She seems very nice. She replied very soon and we've rescheduled the time. We will meet tomorrow at 3:30 in Stamp Student Union. I hope we will have a good time in all semester.

The First Look Fair

On Sep. 20, I saw a lot of balloons when I walked near to the HZF. I didn’t know what’s happened. I just thought maybe had a special Fair in there. At 10 clocks Harriet took us to see “The First Look Fair”. When I saw it, I was very surprised. There were more than 400 student clubs and organizations. Though, they had a lot of clubs and organizations and no one interesting me. But I liked “Traveling Terps” tiny stuff that was global key chain. It was so cute. Anyway, this was a special experience for me.

The Food Coop

Today, we went to the Food Coop which is located in the Stamp Student Union for our lunch with Nina and classmates. I think the food there is really healthy, but I don’t like it because most of the food there is American food, and actually I don’t like American food so much. American food makes me fat weight. I don’t know why. So, if you like American food or healthy food, I think you can go to the Food Coop for your lunch or dinner. It will be a good place for you.

Impressions of MEI

This is my second time to learn English in the U.S. But this is my first time to attend MEI. Before the MEI class started, I came to the school to see the environment, and my first impression was that the school is very big.

Now, we have had classes for about one week. All of the teachers are very nice, and they have a lot of programs to help us to improve our English. I think this is very good for us. And the classmates are nice, too. But it’s a little hard to make friends from other places. Maybe after a few weeks, we know each other more and more. Then I think I can make friends more easier.

Yesterday I took Metro to go home, and I got off at Shady Grove station.
When I got off the Metro, around of scenes became so familiar.
a lot of scenes went through my brain......

Suddenly, I miss my friends who I made at Montgomery College so much.
Becasuse, it is so hard to make friend in MEI
I dont know why..... (is it my problem?)
So I feel so lonely >O<

Actually, I really want to make other friends in our class.
but I dont know how to start.....(am I shy?? maybe QQ )
I will cheer up to make some friends.
Cheer up!!Cheer up!! ~~Cindy~~ Cheer up!!Cheer up!!

Lunch with classmates and Nina on Sep. 12

Today, I went to the Dairy for lunch with Nina, Jennifer, a Taiwanese boy, and three Korean boys. I ate fried noodles that Jennifer’s husband made. It was delicious. This is the first time I ate lunch with classmates and Nina, and I thought it would be a great lunch. That’s why I went to the Dairy. Nina took a picture of Jennifer and me. The picture looks a little funny. It was a great lunch.

Who I Am and Why I Am Here

My name is Chun-Yu Lin, and you can call me Cindy. I come from Taiwan. There are three people in my family. My mother is working in an accounting office, my brother is a salesman (he sells Suzuki cars), and I just graduated from Tamg Kang University in June. My major is Computer Science. I am very interested in travel. When I was a university student, I always took trips with my friends in the summer. Actually, nothing makes me special and different from other people. I’m a very ordinary person. I came to the United States because I want to apply to graduate school at the University of Maryland. But now my English is not good enough to apply, so I came here to study English first. I hope my English can improve quickly so I can go to graduate school at the University of Maryland. I think MEI has a test like the TOEFL, and if I pass that, I can begin my studies at UM. I think I will take it, but I don’t know when. I hope MEI can give us this kind of information, and I think I can achieve my dream.
