Sunset Market with Fuji city

Hello everyone!

As I mentioned before, Fuji City is one of sister cities of Oceanside.  In the beginning of September, they went here again to join the Oceanside Sunset Market.  I worked as a volunteer with them.

(The article of their first visit is here)

Sunset market is located in downtown Oceanside and opened every Thursday evening.  It is really good event.  There are a lot of kinds of street stalls such as food and clothes.  In that time, they joined it for handing out Japanese green tea and some special products of Fuji city for free.

Because this year is 25th anniversary of friendship of Oceanside and Fuji City.

This is Fuji city booth.Fuji city has a lot of trees because it is located the foot of Mt. Fuji.

So they are known as making paper^^

茶娘

Some Japanese Mira Costa students helped them as volunteers. They costumed 茶娘(Cha-musume) which is a girl who work in a tea plantation.

Almost all Japanese people love green tea.

But it has a unique taste.

So American people drank it with great interest.

Fuji City – Our Sister City

Fuji City from Japan is one of sister cities of Oceanside.  In August, people from Fuji city came to Oceanside in two times!  I worked as a volunteer and help their activities.

First visit was the beginning of August. Junior high school and high school students came and see the City of Oceanside.

They joined ‘College for Kids’ which is trial classes program by Mira Costa College for 6-17 years old. There were art, cooking, and science class. It was so hard for them to communicate to American students, but finally, they got a lot of American friends!

 

They also joined Mira Costa ELI (English Language Institute) class.

The teacher did really fun lecture, so they enjoyed a lot!

They took a picture with Oceanside mayor

Fuji city students met Oceanside mayor!

He guided them in his office.

He was really sweet, friendly, and kindly person^^

You can do it

You wish to come and study in the US, you wish to become someone, then just do it.

If you want something tomorrow then you have to work for it today.

MiraCosta is a please of great opportunities and this was exactly the kind of school I was looking for when I was thinking of coming to study in the US. So I applied at www.miracosta.edu and I got accepted and now I am here. It is as easy as ABC. Do something today if you want to be somebody tomorrow.

How To Be a Successful student Off campus

How To Be  Successful Student Off campus

I did a blog on how to be a successful student on Campus, but I really want to make it clears that the thing you do off campus can greatly influence you performance or  your grades at school. what are some of those thing????

  Go To Bed On time. 

 You are surly thinking to yourself, that is not true. Maybe because you are use to texting all night and going to bed late. But if you did’t know going to bed late makes you worn out and tired the next day and most of the time angry. Which can lead to bad grades.

 

 

 Go to the beach or somewhere nice, go play some games.

MiraCosta College is very close to the beach. You can literally see the beach form school. School is very important but taking a minute out and relax is very important. I helps relax your nerves, it gives you the opportunity to meet new and interesting people. By the way the people in the picture is the MiraCosta Beach Volley ball team and also won the championship against other school that year. so if you want you can be part of the school team. Basket ball, volley ball tennis swimming etc.

Don’t go party the eve of an exam, this are little things that people thing don’t matter but the affect you directly. You need to be able to do the right thing at the right time. Know when to relax and don’t relax to much. Never forget you are a student and your primary focus is to pass those classes and get out of schools.

Three things I like about living in Oceanside, California

California in general is beautiful, but Oceanside is even more beautiful. From the warm sandy beaches to the mountains to and it’s fascinating history, it has made its self a destination for a lot of tourists and a perfect environment for most student. The land of milk and honey. I am from Cameroon in Africa, and there we have just two seasons the dry and the rainy season. When I decided to come to the US I was so scared of the cold. But that was not the case, when I arrived in Oceanside I was so surprised by how hot the sun was here. I kept preparing myself for the cold but I was disappointed as Oceanside seem to have summer all year long. that was actually a happy disappointment.

 The diversity of Oceanside makes it very special. There are a lot of people from different cultures and background, from different countries and states. Oceanside has tons of interesting people, at least every week I meet someone from a new place that I have never been to; that gives me the opportunity to know about that place even thou I have never been there. For instance I have friends who are form China, they told me it is a bad idea to give a Chines person a watch or a clock as a gift as that signifies death. I was like ohhhh my God I was so surprised and at the same time amazed by what I had just learned. I have never been to China but now because of the diversity of oceanside I know about some of their believes and culture. How cool is that!!!

 Oceanside also has a welcome center located on “923 N Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054”. This welcome center sells amusement tickets at a discounted price, which gives you the opportunity to visit places like Legoland, Disney land, San Diego zoo and sea World. We have sunset markets on Thursday evening, at down town Oceanside. Oceanside is a place where you never get bored. It has surfing, deep sea diving, coastal cruises that leave the sore every day, oceanside border the Pacific Ocean, which is the largest Ocean in the world. Imagin the one million view I have everyday for free. For those who don’t like the water, well let me inform you that Oceanside also has great hiking places. where you can go to the mountain top and enjoy the beautiful sun set. If you have a couple of thing you will like to scratch off your list while get you college degree at a college like MiraCosta, Oceanside if definitely the best destination for you.
