Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well.

My name is Jazmin Boulton. I am an American student from Reno, Nevada. Do you know Nevada? It is in the western part of the United States. My hometown is Tamuning, Guam, but I left Guam when I was 6 years old. This year I am studying at Hiroshima University. My major is linguistics. I arrived in Japan on September 22 and I return to America in August 2018. 

There are many things I want to do in Japan: improve my Japanese, eat lots of food (especially udon and zenzai!), and explore the country. In fact, I am planning on traveling over winter break. I am going to Hakodate for Christmas and the Kansai area for New Year`s. My birthday is on January 1 as well. I am very excited to spend New Year`s in Japan. On that day, I want to visit a shrine and eat osechi.

What are things you like to do for Christmas and New Year`s? 

If you have any suggestions for things to do while I am on winter vacation, please let me know! I would also like to know if you have any fun or exciting winter plans.

Have a safe and fun November everyone! Thank you!
- Jazmin
