When I was a kid, I often watch Lilo and Stitch (Disney) ..
and this part of the movie is what I always remember...
Lilo: Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind. But if you want to leave, you can. I'll remember you though... (looking at her picture of her dead parents)... I remember everyone that leaves...
Studying outside your home country is really difficult. you are away from your biological family.. but just like the movie lilo and stitch, family is not just by biological reasons .. it is a BOND between people.. my home country have this very special bond, not just among your real family, but with everyone.. where ever you are, someone will always treat you as part of their family..
Here in Japan, international students may feel so lonely brought by the differences in culture and language and of course the fact that you are away from your family..
Communication with the students, professors or even with ordinary people is very difficult.. most of Japanese students are really shy and afraid to speak with international students (primarily because of English).. and for me I respect that.. but once you get to know them, they are really nice and kind person.. it takes time before you get into them.. one thing I know is that every people loves food.. and so I always try to start a friendship with the help of food.. when communication starts, you can easily build good relationships with them..
I love to observe people's personality.. it fascinates me how a person is uniquely different.. even twins have different personality.. But I think the common thing in every nation is that BOND of family.. just like stitch, where ever you are, you can always find a second home..
Sorry if there will be some mistakes with this post.. I just have the hunger to write something..so I made it with my mobile phone again. (>_<)
