Feeling like home at KISC23.03.2016
I feel at home here at KISC! That’s why I am the Smile of the week.
When I came here I was surprised, because of word ‘WE’. I thought English speakers use ‘I’ more than ‘WE’. Actually Korean prefers ‘WE’ to ‘I’, Because Korea is following family communal culture. So we use ‘our family’, ‘our country.’ But English speaking country use ‘my family.’, ‘my country’ so I thought English speakers prefer ‘I’ to ‘WE’. But I am wrong. At KISC we prefer ‘WE’ to ‘I’. We think we are all family. That’s why we can feel like home. That’s why we can smile happily.
I have two stories at KISC. I already wrote my profile. I lost my phone last week. At that time many of Pinkies worried about my phone and my feelings. So I was able to smile and get the power. And then fortunately I found my phone a couple days ago. All Pinkies shared the joy of finding it with me. I was able to smile again. This happening reminds me one sentence. ‘Sharing joy increases joy, sharing sorrow decreases sorrow’
Another story is in the kitchen. The food at KISC is different from Korea. I always eat different type of food. This food is really nice so I’m really happy. Eating always makes me happy. But this is not the only thing. Cooking different type of food is super awesome experience. And fortunately many of the people like my food. So, how can I not smile in here?
The familiar culture, nice friends and fantastic food makes me feel at home in KISC. That’s why I can always smile and be happy. You can feel it as well!
