Time is really going by quicker than I thought it would. The classes, the apt, food, shopping. Everything has been a big adjustment. Not to mention I just had my 21st birthday in Japan :) having a birthday is an amazing thing just by itself but being able to say that I had a birthday in Japan makes it even more awesome. I brought my birthday in on a bus coming back from Tokyo. I spent my Golden Week (a national holiday here in Japan) exploring it with some amazing/interesting people. Tokyo was amazing.Even in 4 days I don’t think I saw enough. I visited Shibuya, Roppongi, Harajuku, and a few other places I can’t name off the top of my head.
Classes in Japan are a bit different than what I”m used to in the states; they’re only once a week for about an hour and a half and if class gets cancelled for some reason you have to make it up on a Saturday. I got the joy of experiencing going to class on a rainy Saturday. Other than only meeting once a week I’ve gotta say classes are alot easier here. I’m happy about that so I get more time to experience Japan instead of staying in my room studying. The food;……still adjusting lol. Still adjusting to the taste as well as the prices. Shopping…hmm this deserves its on post on another day. Without going into too much detail right now I’ll just say that if you’re not a small you’re going to have fun shopping.
