So this is a report of the past 2 weeks…
I went to Tokyo on the 30th and 31st of march. Look what I encountered in Shibuya! Very nice billboards ^^
Going to Tokyo on those days was a bit of a miscalculation though. I wanted to go then because my friends from uni would be there at the same time. In the end it was very hard to find them and meet up AND the shinkansen is so expensive T_T I was not amused, at all.
When I eventually found my friends we went to karaoke!
First day of uni was on the 2nd of April, the first week was all introduction, paperwork and other boring things.
One afternoon I went to kaitensushi with a bunch of other people. Really fascinating experience…. they even had cake :O
Some more introduction sesions where I didn’t pay attention…. I was totally engrossed by the pocky, as you can see. O and meet my friend Melissa btw, she’s from Australia!
One night I decided to bake crêpes! Everybody present in the kitchen was rather enraptured by my baking…. I felt like I was giving a show!
friday 6th of April we had a nomikai with the skp-budies (Japanese students at Ritsu who take care of us, poor clueless foreigners)
After two hours we were thrown out (it’s a weird Japanese custom to pay for 2 hours of drinking and after that you have to leave or pay more, therefore going out in Japan is rather expensive!) on to the Kamogawa we went and froze our toes off in the process.
Sakura are blooming on campus right now.
Last friday (the 13th) I had an icecreamparty at my room … there are so many yummie flavours!!!!
My friends occupying my room, and one of them (Dom) stealing my plushies!!!!
After the icecream, on to Karaoke (again)! -but I don’t have any good pictures of that :( -
Saturday (the 14th) I went to hanami by the Kamogawa. Everyone was really fascinated by my cyberlox and they kept pulling at it … even a shopwoman pulled them without asking :S -seriously people would you touch my real hair like that? It seems that when something looks a bit weird it suddenly becomes public property.
There was a really strong wind that day!
Today I bought my 教科書 (textbooks)!
Saigo ni! (lastly)
-I ended up in the D1 class, a level to low according to Niehaus-sensei… so he is going to let me take Japanese 6 again (HEY KOUHAI NEXT YEAR I WILL BE IN YOUR CLASS AND I WILL BULLY ALL OF YOU!!!!! *looks at Penny, PJ, Tessa Marescha, Fanny and Josse.*)
-The weather here is bullshit, we have four seasons in 2 days… rain, cold, sun, hot, wind … everything mixed together. You never know what’s going to happen when you set a foot outside of your door.
-Life at the dorms is very interesting and fun, all the people over here are awesome!!!!!
P.S. A special message for Fune-Bert, as Inke said that you were wondering about me: I’m having a good time! Thanks for thinking about me!!!!! I will try to do smaller updates and more often from now on!
