To sum up,three characters all experienced the laziness but in the different circumstance. Besides,I see myself in Emi because I feel the same way like she does,When I first get into the airplane and go to United States to study,I missed my friends,my school,my family into pieces. It is not easy to study abroad away everything you used to.My favorite quotes of three stories is ‘’Those are things we can carry in our hearts and take with us no matter where we are sent’’. .
