日本とアラスカの大学の違いは

友達と話していての一言

意外と違いがあるようで無いのではと感じるのかもしれない。

日常生活で大きな違いは日々感じてはいるけど

それは文化に由来するものであって

大学のシステムとしてのものではない、とか



まあでもセメスター制を始めとした学期の違いはある、か

特に夏季短期講習のようなsummer school とかは面白いと思う。
これは日本でもやってくれると嬉しい。

さて本日DMVに行き、無事筆記試験が合格。

路上テストを受けてね、とのことなので、ネットで予約をしようとする。

最速が1月8日ってあなたもう少しやる気をだそうよ、ねえ

仕方なく8日にアポイントメント

と、ここで恒例のクレジットカード問題発生

クレジットカードの情報で、住所が要求されるのだけど

カードの住所は当然日本のところ

んで日本語が認識されない
英語で入力しても一致せず。



ということでまた明後日にDMVに行く事に。
もう、これだからカード社会は、いやん

便利な事も多いけど、アメリカでの住所を持っていない人間にとってはなかなか厳しいことも多い。



まあ自国の人への特典は当然で、
外国人にはそれくらい冷遇の方が国的には良いとは思う!

以下役に立った知識

You should always turn left from the left lane and turn right from the right lane, unless otherwise signed. You must always turn into the closest lane, and you must not change lanes mid-turn. Here, Car A has turned into the closest lane and then merged, while Car B has cut across and turned directly into the far lane. So, Car A has turned correctly and Car B has not. [Left Turn, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

You cannot park within 15ft of a fire hydrant. This leaves enough room for the fire department to access the hydrant if they need to respond to a nearby fire. [Parking, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

You should point your wheels away from the curb when you park facing up hill. This way, if your car were to roll, your front wheels would roll backwards into the curb and stop your car. If you drive a manual, leave your car in first gear. This will make it difficult for your car to roll backwards down hill. If you drive an automatic, leave your car in Park. [Parking, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

You are required to dip your high beams when you come within 500ft of an approaching car. You must also dip your high beams when you are less than 300ft behind another car. [Lighting Law, Use of Lighting Equipment, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

You must stop before reaching a school bus which has stopped with its STOP arm extended and red signals flashing. You cannot proceed until the red signals are switched off, the STOP arm is retracted, and the bus has resumed motion. You are permitted to pass if the bus driver waves you through. [Overtaking a School Bus with Red Lights Activated, The Alaska School Bus Stop Law, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

You must use your headlights from half an hour after sunset until half an hour before sunrise. You must use your headlights when visibility falls below 1000ft. Your headlights can help other drivers see your car when conditions are poor. You must never drive with just your parking lights on. [Lighting Law, Use of Lighting Equipment, State of Alaska Driver Manual]

If an Alaska driver who is under the age of twenty-one uses a false AK driver's license to unlawfully purchase alcohol, his or her driver's license will be revoked. [Revocations, Suspensions and Revocations, Alaska Driver Manual]
