Japanese Placement Test Results

This is quite old by now (March 31), and I didn't put down many (any) details in the draft, but I figure that for the sake of memory I should go ahead and post what I can.

The one with the creepy drunk guys

Seriously, what's with creepy guys in Japan? I like the idea of a running gag, but this is one I'd prefer not to repeat.

For the record, this is actually from March 27th, but I'm only just now getting around to translating it from the shorthand I drafted it in into normal human language.

The one with the creepy old guy

Okay, while today (Alright, it's "yesterday" now, but whatever. Friday) was not quite as amazing as yesterday-- it's admittedly hard to compare with yesterday!-- it was still a fun, adventure-filled day.

Woah, I'm in Japan!

I'm getting way behind on these blog things. I don't know if I'll really try to do them "daily" the whole semester, but I would certainly like for each day to be adventurous enough!

The beginning (A very good place to start!)

I wrote the following earlier in the day in a Word document because I didn't have an ethernet cable (you'll see why). Actually, I still don't, but I discovered a wifi connection that I can borrow until my suitcase arrives.

Well I’ve finally arrived at my dorm room, where I’ll be spending the next four months. It’s been a rather trying time, but I’m glad to finally be able to settle down a bit. I haven’t been able to really use a computer, so let’s start from the beginning.
