My Glorious Intro...

Hey! This is just an introduction post. My name's Lauren and I will be spending a month in Japan with EIL.

Edit: I got a question about EIL. It stands for Experiment in International Living and the website is

The program specifically is called "Japan: Japanimation: Exploring Japanese Culture through Anime and Manga," which pretty much means I'm gonna be learning how to create anime, while staying with a family, all while learning the language and culture.

I must say that once I'm actually in Japan, I have no idea if I will ever be able to post, or if I'll have to post everything when I get back or something crazy like that....

But anyway, my forms are looking pretty good. I got everything I need to be signed, signed. I just haven't emailed it all yet. And my mom sent in a form for the doctor yesterday that's due at the end of the month. Hopefully it won't take him two years to send it back... But other than that, everything's good. I'll try to update often.. i guess.. even though my life's not that interesting...

*Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out all of this blogger stuff..*

Well, until next time!


  1. Haha~ I think it's a great intro :P

    Woah! I've never heard of a program like that :D It sounds quite interesting~ If my mom won't let me go for a year program, I think going on this program would be quite interesting!

    Good luck, I will continue to follow your posts :3
    (P.S: I'm not some random person, I'm cmunch from Cultures shocked~ Hope you don't mind me following your blog xD)

  2. Hey!
    First of all, you have an awesome layout (^0^)b
    And second of all you are gonna have an AMAZING time in Japan!! I was going to go with EIL at first, but I ended up going with YFU. However, I talked with a bunch of past EIL exchangers on Facebook and they said they had a wonderful time =)

  3. Hey!
    I'm planning on going back to Japan again for another exchange and I was wondering what EIL stands for? or what it's website is .. haha, I don't know if the websites I find are correct :P
