My life, stories and shenanigans from Japan

First update in a while

Hey.  Long time no posting.

I’m back from Japan.  Frankly, I liked it more there.

I’ve been so busy and posting on this blog hasn’t been on the top of my priority list.

Got some good news, though.

I’m attempting to get into a full-Japanese University. Wish me luck, though I’m not sure my Japanese level is quite at that point yet

If I do get into Japanese University, I will re-start posting on this blog.  I’ve already been working on adjustments (major one being that I will switch blog hosting websites to one where I have a bit more freedom *coughcough* blogger) and the other good news with that is that I can stick advertising on the side of the blog (I’m sorry) and make MONEY.  YEAH.  Though besides that, the all-out layout of the blog has been vastly redesigned and I think you’ll be happy with the new look.  (It looks, if I may say so, pretty darn good.  It’ll hopefully put this site to shame).   When I do that, I’ll hopefully begin to post more frequently. (Hopefully once every few days. )

So yeah.  Wish me luck in getting into Japanese University.  I’ll be going back to Japan this summer to hopefully get some things ironed out :)

JLPT

Well, I took the JLPT level 2 yesterday. 

I did really good on my practice tests.  Scoring with room to spare enough to pass.

Yesterday…not so much.

Meh.

No interesting picture or anything.

Because I haven’t updated in a while

Alrighty.  It’s not that I’ve gotten lazy or anything, it’s just that nothing relevant has happened until yesterday and since then I have been very busy.  Hang with me. Some sort of post will come tomorrow or the next day.  For now, I’ll leave you one of those witty quotes I used at Disneyland to share my great knowledge of the United States to a curious comrade.

Comrade:  (looking at sign) Mark Twain? Who is that?

Me: Probably one of the most famous American authors.

Comrade:  I see.  What book did he write?

Me:  Oh. Um. The Adventures of Tom Brady?!?

 

 

Which is sad, considering I’ve read the book. And, thankfully, when I did (some time later) correct myself, the friend had heard of neither Tom Brady nor Tom Sawyer.

New look

I updated the blog look.

I think it looks fresher. And maybe more appealing. Maybe.  Sure, it isn’t as cute, but I think it looks more sophisticated. So. Yes.  That is all.  Enjoy.  I’ll be updating the blog a bit more in the upcoming days. Don’t worry. I’m working on a way to re-add a touch of slight cute.

I’m not dead

I’ve just been busy

Jackson Vigil

Well, coming to school today, someone told me something that I found interesting.

Remember the people video taping/taking pictures of me at the Michael Jackson vigil crying (laughing)? Well, the video made it onto the morning news today. Or, so I was told by people at school.

Yeah. I’m still hunting the video down.
