Challenge in Vancouver

8 weeks ago from now, I went to Whistler to study English. I thought it would be a good chance for me. However, my thought was totally changed as soon as I arrived there. There was only nature. Actually I don't like nature so much because I had lived in the mountain through two years. Some people who were from some parts of Europe such as, Switzerland, Germany and Austria loved Whistler. They enjoyed mountain biking that was not popular in my country. And also, they liked playing by themselves. Therefore I was usually at home after school, and I stayed at home every weekends. What is more, my homestay mother didn't take care of me. I was able to eat dinner about 10 times for 6weeks. In conclusion, everything was a nightmare.Even though I went to Whistler to study, I couldn't defeat my loneliness. So I came back to Vancouver. I think it was my challenge. I tried to improve my English skill. I just rushed without any imformation, though. Since I was too rash, I couldn't help failing. I don't know what I got from this experience. I just regret throwing the time away.

I'm so sorry to hear that you had such a terrible time in Whistler. Don't think of it as a failure though!It sounds like you learned a lot about yourself from the experience.

ps "play by themselves" is for kids. For adults we would say "do their own thing" :)
