name is Adam Neil and I am a college student in America. Though
my parents are from America, I grew up in Asia. That has given
me a unique perspective of life in American college. I hope
that these short episodes can give you a feeling for life as
a college student in America.
During the school year, parents of college students will send them 'care
packages', packages through the mail that contain food, or other things that
the parent bought for the student.
The mother of a friend of mine worked at a children's toy store, so whenever she
sent my friend a package, she would include a few cheap toys. Although these
toys were inexpensive, and made for young children, we would still play with
We would try to think of new ways of using the toys, and play around with it.
Because we were college students playing with these toys in the wrong way, the
toys would always break after an hour or so. We then had to wait for the next
package to come.
