Question 3: “How was the adjustment during your first semester of school in Brigham Young University-Hawaii?”
Me: “I first came here when I was 19 and it was my first time to be way away from my family and friends. I did miss my folks back home at some point, but then time just went as it supposed to go for first semester that I got caught up with school and work, so I never really got super homesick. Of course, there were adjustments that I have to go through—the new environment, the new education system, working and at the same time studying, meeting roommates, and making new friends—but then I learned that it was all up to me if I want to just keep on wishing that I was in the same comfort zone like I was back home or to make the most out it. And I do not regret that I have chosen the latter.
