I haven’t been keeping in contact with my host family, but I have been keeping in contact with some of the other girls from Kichijo! It’s been really easy to talk to people over snapchat and other social media sites that don’t have as much of a commitment as Line or text. It’s been relatively easy to adjust back to the US, and to school starting again, and I’m already back to my usual school state. The only thing that’s been really hard to get used to again is the food being less healthy and also tasting worse, which is really quite unfortunate. I also miss the home life thing that I had gotten used to in Japan, which has been making me homesick for my home life whenever I’m not at school.
