Despite all the complaint about my high school, there’s one thing good about it: as the best school in our city, we have a lot of chances. This time, Japan government offered a scholarship of visiting their country for free, to 16 high schools in China. Fortunately, our school was one of them. I applied without hesitation. The weird thing was that there weren’t too many people applied. I could only assume that they’re worried about being absent from school, which may potentially drop their score temporarily.
