Today I went to a tea ceremony performed by a club at Konan University. I sat in Seiza the entire time because I didn’t wan’t to give up before the Computer Engineer. An hour of that isn’t healthy. I was unable to move my entire leg after it was time to go. It was pretty embarrasing, but also really funny.
I have to find a club to attend before it’s too late. I’m not sure what club to join. I’m thinking the Igo Shougi club… but I’d rather be in a DDR club. Or at least a DDR machine somewhere… I haven’t been able to find one yet.
My Sharp MM20’s HD died again. So I went to the electronics store in Sannomea and bought the cheapest non-sharp laptop I could find. An iBook G4.
The thought of how much time and money I’ve poured into that MM20 makes me sad. It’s so damn cool too 😦
I played Final Fantasy I on a DoCo Mo cell phone today. It was awesome.
Japanese cashiers count bills in a really cool way that I can’t figure out how to do yet. I can’t even explain it properly… I’ll have to record someone doing it.
Someone else who has noticed.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever made flash cards. Hopefully they’ll work out for me.
I uploaded the pictures that were on my Treo to the gallery. They are all small and pretty funny but it’s better than nothing.
I’ve wanted to take so many pictures especially of funny engrish things but I feel bad. I’ll take some time to post the pictures on my cell phone next week.
On the school side of things, the Japanese class is about as intensive as the summer intensive class I took two summers ago. I really wasn’t expecting that. The quizes they give are really hard because they give you the English definition and ask you to give the Japanese word. So even though I’ve already done all the grammar that’s going to be taught in this class, I’m pretty behind on the vocabulary and Kanji. I was thinking about asking to be put in the highest class (E) but I feel comfortable in class D. The quizes are a little harder than I’m used too but it’s good practice for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test I’ll be taking.
Other than Japanese, I’m going to take the Japanese Art History and Japanese Businesss classes because they are more interesting than the Japanese Linguistics and Japanese Society and Law classes. (woo I said Japanese 5 times in one sentence…)
The DVD of Advent Children was sold out practically before it was released. And I was convinced to buy a PSP so I could watch the UMD version. I’m not really satisfied with it though. I think I’ll be selling it in a few months if no really good games come out. Lumines is fun enough for now.
Classes for normal students start tomorrow at Konan, so I hope I’ll be able to make even more friends. Wish me luck on the Kanji quiz tomorrow.
I just saw a girl on channel 3 with some really awesome hair.
So I took a picture of it.
