gu/uniqlo: for when you want a camisole but can't afford LIZ LISA
It's been an interesting past few days. Interesting, and yet completely boring. That doesn't even make sense. Because I took the mock 2kyuu in January to become tokuchokusei, I didn't need to take any of the placement tests that happened last week. In fact, I had little to do around here after my big shopping sprees. I was without any sort of direction until going to the graduation ceremony in support of my former RA Mitsuki last week, when I went to the offices to ask about the attendance slip for tomorrow's excursion (more on that) and was told I'd get it at the tokuchokusei orientation. Uh, what orientation? Nobody had told me a damn thing. That turned out to be Monday, and I was rather excited for it because it was a change of pace, but it only lasted about an hour and then it was back to the usual. Of course, now I get to pick out which classes I want to take. It's looking promising, let me tell you - just like school was back at Iowa, but in Japanese and even LESS frequent. No morning class? No problem! Now it just doesn't start until the 11th...so I have one more week to kill. Can I do it? Yes I can. :D

I've been speeding up when it comes to catching up on my dramas and even some movies. I'm not often in a movie-watching mood. Tangled was adorable, would watch again. Morning Glory was cute and fun. TiMER was a disappointment. In terms of Western dramas, now that I'm finally caught up on everything (with the exception of American Skins and the latest episodes of Harry's Law, SVU, and Celebrity Apprentice) and TV shows are on hiatus until mid-April, I think I'm going to start another one - I've been recommended Popular before, so why not? It's only two seasons, so I think I can make that happen by the time I leave Japan.

This morning I had my awaited Skype date with my bestie Sabrinaaaa~! <3 We chatted for about two hours, which was great. I feel like I've been going through a lot of changes here both in how I look and how I am in general, but she's the one whom I've always been able to relate to best (>w<)

Ah, so tomorrow is the first field trip of the new semester: we're going to Iga Ueno, the ninja village! A lot of people in the Japanese program back home seem to have this obsession with ninjas (my boyfriend may be part of this - I say this based on his Halloween costumes <3), but I can't say I've ever been truly into it. =/ Still, I'm actually looking forward to sitting on a bus for an hour and a half so I can zone out with my iPod and watch the Japan scenery go by.

Tonight almost turned into an unintentional mental disaster after having a chance conversation with an old friend from high school, but without thinking about it until now, I've managed to distract my mind away from it. Keep up the good work, Amanda.

I'm really glad Iowa gave you a choice to stay. I intern in Alabama's study abroad department and they made them come back (even though the majority of people are at Kansai Gaidai in Osaka) and it looks like they won't let them go back. I think they are cancelling the summer program to Chiba University too.

So...when I was in Korea, I fell in love with this clothing store called Giordano. It's like Uniqlo, but a little cheaper. I read there are a few stores in Japan, so you might wanna check it out if it's near you!

That field trip sounds awesome. xD

Damn, so schools around there are pulling out too. We've lost at least half of our exchange students, but Iowa so far refuses to do anything. Sometimes I'm grateful, other times I'm just frustrated because it's lonely without my other friends.

Giordano? I'll look it up! :D

The field trip WAS awesome, omg. XD I'll try to show up pics, otherwise I have some on FB now!
