Okay. So right now, I’m cleaning my room. I’m not going to be here for a week so might as well, right? The semester is over so there’s a lot of shiz to throw out. Test papers and stuff. I got some hangers and stuff from Jess since she’s going back to Chicago and she can’t very well take everything with her.

I haven’t done laundry so I don’t really have a lot of stuff to pack. Oh dear. I’m doing my laundry right now!

I was hanging out with the other international students last night — watching Fifth Element and playing Smash.

Tomorrow, we head out to Nagoya Station and then off to Shizuoka to climb Mt Fuji. This is going to be so much fun! I’ll keep updating this blog so keep in touch!

I also got my internship info stuff today. Schedule and stuff. I’m not sure how I feel about internship. I kind of don’t want to do it. I just want to go traveling. I’m not getting paid for internship anyway.  Plus, I have to write down a report — what I did everyday and stuff. I hope it’s fun.

It’s my freaking summer vacation!

I still owe you guys a TON of pictures and stories but I’ll save that to tomorrow. I’m being lazy today. Let me! Hee. I was lazy yesterday too. Fuuuuuuuck. Okay. Ta ta!

I dyed my hair red! Hee. It didn’t turn out red. But oh well.

I bet ya think this song is about you

I’m getting annoyed at the guys who go to the gym in school. They hang out by the machines! Actually sitting there and talking — doing nothing. It’s really annoying. Like… I wanna use the machines near them. And they’re there. And they’re not really using stuff. And if anything — they look at people in the gym. It’s kinda rude to look at someone who’s exercising. It makes them self-conscious, don’t you think? Meh.

And then, after… a bunch of guys came in. Propped themselves down near the mats, and started playing cards. Wtf.

Was too tired today from last night. I didn’t even accomplish much. Except maybe finish my paper. Oh well. Silly me didn’t know that my kanji exam was today. So I just studied during my grammar class (didn’t get a lot of studying done, actually). Tomorrow is our interview exam where we’re going to have to speak in Japanese. Nyawr. Ganbarimasu.

Mt. Fuji trip update: Jess and Matt are joining us!

Random stuff that I didn’t write in my public blog (which from now on will be referred to as “Extra”):

So the Japanese guy who asked me out last week is going to help me buy my bus tickets to Mt. Fuji. It was annoying how he just randomly called me baby and sweety earlier today. Meh. He was an exchange student to Memphis last year. I wonder what that did to him.

Por favor

Meh. I should probably bring my umbrella all the time since it’s the rainy season, no? I got a bit wet earlier. It was sunny too! Grawr! Even the sky lies! Darn it.

Anyway, we’re having our interview test on Thursday. So they’re going to ask us questions in Japanese and we’re supposed to answer in Japanese. Our final exam is on Friday.

I talked to Kenji (one of my students) about Mt Fuji and he gave me a lot of tips and stuff! Now all I need is a place to stay if ever I hit Tokyo!

It was awful

I woke up at 8:05 today. If it weren’t for my dorm mate, I wouldn’t have woken up at all! Class is at 9:10. So I got up, took a 5-minute shower, got dressed, and was out of the dorm by 8:15! Nyaha! I WASN’T LATE! Woo hoo. I got to class by 9:08. I was sort of freaking out, too!

I skipped badminton again cause I had to finish my paper for Japanese Culture and Arts class. I couldn’t concentrate last night because of the evil forces surrounding me (just to add a touch of melodrama in my life).

I’m done with homework now so I’m probably going to sleep pretty early tonight (FINALLY).

Ayanda and I are planning on climbing Mt. Fuji on Wednesday and then staying in Tokyo from Thursday-Sunday. Do I have any friends that live in Tokyo that I can impose myself to?

Been busy

So last Friday, we went to a 焼き肉 (yakiniku) on Friday. It costs ¥2,900 — an eat all you can, drink all you can place. So what happens is we order meat and stuff and cook it ourselves. And then order some drinks. There’s a catch, though — the drinks is only for 90 minutes and the food, 2 hours (I think). I’ll post pictures here as soon as I’m able to steal from people!

Yesterday, on the other hand, I watched some amateur sumo thing with my friends. It was held by the Nagoya University Sumo Club in Nagoya Castle. It was awesome. At some point, this guy approached us and asked Eyobe and Dustin if they wanted to join. And Dustin totally did! Hahaha. Pictures when they’re posted!

We all know I’m not doing that pose again. Lol.

If you’re a big spender

I’ve been putting off blogging here because it disgusted me to see my old posts. I want to start anew. But at the same time — that’s always what I’ve been doing. So I guess I just need to keep on blogging to bury old not-so-pleasing-to-the-eyes entries of mine.

We haven’t had any classes for five days now. It’s all because of the swine flu scare. I don’t get it. Back in the Philippines, there have been cases of swine flu and yet they didn’t really suspend classes for a week. Same as in Singapore where my friend’s a teacher — they have TONS of cases and yet they didn’t really suspend classes.

At this point, I think I’m supposed to wear the face mask that my dormitory gave me to wear. I wore it. For a day, maybe. It’s just silly.

Welcome to the fall

I got McDonalds coupons now! Nyahaha! Food for cheaper! I had a big mac for ¥200 yen! Pretty cheap! :> But just the big mac, though! No drinks or anything! But I’m not complaining! I haven’t had that thing for months! Well, not that I couldn’t afford it, I just didn’t feel like it! Mwehehe.

Lately, people haven’t been feeling like going on with classes and stuff! Summer vacation is SOOOOOOOOOOO near.

We went to OXO bar after classes! It was awesome! I had one drink. Lychee tonic. And then we came back home. 15 minutes to 10, Mika calls me up and says that we’re going for Baskin Robbins for ice cream. We’re not sure what time it closes and so we think that it prolly closes at 10. So we RAN to Baskin Robbins. People were looking. It was AWESOME.

They have a promo right now — ¥410 yen for three small scoops of ice cream (not really that small), and ¥580 for 3 bigger scoops of ice cream. Just imagine this: their normal one scoop of ice cream with the works costs ¥390 yen! AWESOME PROMO!

Today’s a good day.

One lifetime

So Saito sensei called me up during my lunch break. He told me that if I wanted to become a teaching assistant (TA) for the library next term, I should go see Maiko at 3PM in the library. Soon after, Eyobe FB chats me asking me if I’m going to do it and I told him that I would since I’m not really doing anything and that it’s a great way to make friends.

So me and Eyobe went there after third period and sat in on Matt’s (the exchange student from Alaska who’s currently a TA) class. He sort of did an English conversation thing today. We just sort of talked about music and Japan and books blahblah.

This all made me realize that I want to go traveling this summer vacation but I don’t really know where to go and what’s a good plan! ;( Anyone?
