Another English Event

Last Friday, as I posted, I took part in an English event. I got involved in another event yesterday afternoon.
This time it was a farewell party for exchange students from America.

I'm a member of the international association and it was the first time for me to participate in that kind of event. I'm a newcomer and was not a host family; nevertheless, other members welcomed me warmly.
When I arrived at the venue, some exchange students and their host families had been there. Upon sitting on a chair, I talked to the woman next to me. She told me that it was her first time to be a host family this time. To add to that, I had chances to have a chat with other people. At that time I got to know an escort teacher of the exchange students. She was so friendly that I felt relaxed and my timidity gradually gone away.

I didn't use to get involved in any event that there weren't my friends or acquaintances because I would feel uncomfortable during an event. I might have been too shy in front of the new people. However, I realized that I had missed opportunities to get to know new people. They might have expanded my horizons or brought me an experience I haven't done yet.

It was true that I felt uncomfortable at the beginning of the event, but I felt that I broke out of my shell or something like that. ^^
