Hi everyone!
I think it's important for us to do something for our parents.
Actually, maybe my parents are older than your parents.
Now I go to junior college in Japan, and I live in dormitory.
So I live so far from them.
They are good old to retire from their jobs, but they do their best so that I can go to school.
I'm only child in my family.
I want to respond the expectation of my parents.
I think I must study hard more.
What I can do for my parents is that.
What do you think about??

hi, jess.
i have same situation with you, i am only child in my family and i live in dormitory too, far from home. sometimes i miss my parents very much. and i have same idea about "I want to respond the expectation of my parents. I think I must study hard more."
i indeed do it. and when the festival coming, i can't go home celerbrite with my parents i booked a present via internet. my parents were so happy to this presents. i think it is a good idea to give your parents a surprise.

good luck for you tests:)
i also have many tests, i have 12 new subjects every term, and 7 of them should be examinatorial. we also have 2 or 3 papars.
before the exam the time is very hot.
my major is automatic control, i think it is a hard major and we have more subjects and exams than other majors, i don't know why, but some majors have only 4 exams every term. it is not equality!!
Don't worry about your parents, i think they will be fine soon. you could call them and encourage your parents to do more exercise, i think it is the best way to keep health.
