My life, stories and shenanigans from Japan

Quick update

I have some free time so I figured I’d write a quick update on my blog.  And by free time, I of course mean it’s about 1:30am and as I’m up late already, I figured I’d write a blog post.

I started my second term of school on Tuesday.  Though Tuesday was an opening orientation, Wednesday was a full day of tests, Thursday I only had two periods, Friday I was sick, and today was a half day, so I can’t exactly say I’ve felt the rhythm of how the second half of my school year will go.

Let’s see…my classes are very different from my first term.  First term I had about half normal classes, and the rest were private Japanese lessons or special courses for me as an exchange student

This term about all of my courses are normal courses.  Almost every single one of them.  Which means I’m also taking courses such as Math II (I’m still deciphering the meaning of the “II”. Whatever it is, it’s a very difficult II), Contemporary Japanese Literature, Biology, and Japanese Classics.  By the end of this year, I may not be able to say all my zoo animals but I may as heck be able to use vocabulary contained in literature from ancient Japan. 

Today, I had Chemistry (It’s not even on my schedule? Though for some reason I had it), Math II, Japanese History, and Japanese Classics. 

While the Japanese Classics teacher was explaining how the book he handed out in class would work throughout the year as well as gave an introduction, all I managed to do was translate the title of the book.  Turns out the book was assembled by the school, and thus the title was the course name.  I felt it wasn’t a good start.

I’m going to start Lacrosse on Monday.   Well, technically I’ll just be watching but that sounds really boring to write on a blog post.

Hmmm that’s about it.

Oh I saw this ad the other day in Shibuya advertising a skin lotion that raises money for a charity that combats sex trafficking. 


I don’t know.  It just didn’t seem like the right shop to sell it at.

New Alice in Wonderland Trailer

I figured, since the trailer only just came out today in the US, and its like 2am where I lived in the US, many people are unaware of the new trailer. And thus, here it is: The New Trailer for Alice in Wonderland. By Tim Burton.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

On a side note, nothing relevant has happened the past few days in Japan. It’s summer break, so nothing much is happening. Yet.

I’ve been stalking

I’ve been looking up stuff on my school, and have found some pretty…interesting pictures.


No, but really, I think there’s going to be some interesting field trips:


I’m really interested (third time I’ve used that word (sort of) this blog post) to see how this whole “Boys School” thing goes…

Looky at that kid in the center’s hand gestures. Pretty rebellious stuff going on there.
