Call Me By Your Name pt.1 – ✨book review✨

Hello, lovelies💜

I am SO excited for today’s post… a review of one of my favorite books of all time. Now, do not take this lightly. Because I have read quite a few books in my time (…by that i mean i was a distinguished member of my elementary school’s millionaire word count book club…), and I rank this book above all else. While I will say it is subject to change, it is highly, HIGHLY unlikely.

*I have not included any spoilers… everything I talk about here is disclosed in the blurb of the book.

Japan VS US: SCHOOL

Hello, beautiful persons.

I have been homesick for Japan lately… I miss my family and the entire enviornment there. In case you’re new here or just didn’t know, my mom’s entire side of the family is in Japan. Like, everyone. She is the only person from her family in the States. Which makes me half Japanese(side note: the way Japan has things right now, when I turn 22 I have to choose Japanese citizenship or American citizenship because they don’t allow dual citizenship. Petition!! Please.). I’ve been privileged enough to be able to experience elementary and junior high there, and there are a lot of differences between Japanese schools and American schools. A disclaimer, though, when I say “experienced” school in Japan, I’ve attended for about 2 weeks every summer.  Also, this is all based off of what happened to me and the schools I went to. I’m sure there are different things and more similar things about schools in Japan and US depending on where you go:) Fun fact: I actually visited a Japanese school before an American school! (granted, it was a kindergarten tour thingy…) So here is Japan vs USA schooling! Comment/like if you think I should make Japan vs US a series!
