I don't know if I like you or love you, want you or need you, all I know is I love the feeling I get when I'm near you.

NYC

NYC is a good place to find friends. Try joining a social club or networking group. As a student, you have many activities you can join and meet people. Just take it slow and easy. Be yourself and most of all, have fun!

Sharon, a "union carpenter" just means a carpenter who is a member of the carpenters' labor union.  Labor unions are quite strong in New York; so many construction contracts require the use of union labor.  Prevailing carpenter wages there range from $14 to $44 per hour, while some non-union carpenters might work for as little as the state minimum wage of $7.15 per hour.

I agree that cottage cheese by itself is not a very appetizing snack.  Usually cottage cheese is used as part of a salad with other ingredients, frequently fruit.  Another dairy product that many people like better as a snack is yogurt, which comes in many fruit flavors.

Have you spent much time in the Chinatowns in lower Manhattan and in Queens?  What part of China do you come from?

Good luck with your studies and making friends.
