The 50 United States of America


In my 1 year, 3 months and 10 days living in the United States of America, I am proud to say that I have already adapted my new and big environment. Although at some point in my life living here, I just couldn't stand the dirty politics as well. Why brag about what you have or what you have done where in fact, we can help each other to be productive and think about a progressive nation. But I am not going to talk about politics here right now. Since I have been to 29 states already and been reading road signs and directions totally from scratch. I mean, reading the road directions purely from my Atlas Map. It is the big map covering the whole North America including Canada and Mexico. My husband started teaching me how to read road signs, route numbers and State and Interstate highway directions. Everything that I should learn, I owe it from him because he's been patient teaching me directions.

Earlier today, I took a challenge for myself. Without looking at the book - the Atlas Map, I wrote down all 50 states including their 50 state capitals and 50 state largest cities in alphabetical order. I was having fun when writing them while my husband was peeking at what I am doing. After writing all them down, I looked in the map book and check my mistakes. I have completed writing down the 50 states in alphabetical order (I can say them verbally too). I have 4 mistakes in writing down the 50 state capitals and 12 mistakes in state largest cities. Isn't that amazing? Next time, I am ready to explore the remaining 21 states to complete my journey to the United States of America. If you will ask me what's my next goal? Memorizing all the USA Presidents from past to present. How cool is that? Right now, I have to beat my husband as he still know all the USA presidents.
