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.
The college I attended was in the northern part of the United States, so it was
very cold in the winter. Because of the cold temperature, about two to four feet
of ice was frozen on the surface of the lake. This allowed us to go out and walk
around on top of the frozen lake.
One time, a few friends and I went out for a walk at night on top of the ice.
This was in March, when the ice was beginning to melt. I was walking a few feet
in front of my friends when they suddenly called out. "Adam, stop. Don't move."
I looked back at them, and they pointed towards a huge hole in the ice in front
I was looking at the stars as I was walking and did not pay attention to the
ice. If my friends had not stopped me, I would have walked into the hole, and
fell into the lake. Naturally, I was very happy that my friends were watching
out for me.
