A email from EIL


Yay! I'm happy!

I got a super duper awesome email today!! It's from EIL! It's a japanese language form to gauge my japanese skills and artistic abilities. My two favorite questions... "What Japanese anime/manga do you like?" (and they only give you two lines!) and "Make a freehand drawing...blah blah..." Any form that asks you to doodle is good by me!

So, I'm gonna try to get this filled out soon. This email just makes this whole experience seem more... real. There are now officially Japanese people making anime workshops and language training stuff. :D

On other news:
Bus tour tomorrow! In short, I miss about 4 hours of school and hop on a bus with the school orchestra to go to one of the elementary/primary schools and we play music for students and teachers!!

On more other news:
I'm leaving for the Philippines in two days. Two days. For 8 days without my parents! Well, I got my nice traditional dress tailored and I have all my paperwork ready. Now I just need to survive the 25 hours of flying!

Weird news, I'm gonna be in Tokyo!!!! But only for two hours. xD We have a two hour stop over at Narita Airport. If people really want pictures, than I guess I'll post some...

Jya ne!!!

to Japanese text...)

Just a list of tickers counting down to all the stuff going on in my life:

Wonderful Money

Hey everybody who reads this bog! I have news that's kinda exchange related! So, for those of you that didn't read about this in my earlier post, I'm going to the Philippines in..... 14 days! Or a little over 2 weeks! So excited!

Because I'm going out of the country without my parents, I needed to take care of paperwork and stuff.... (xD I have no idea what's going on with my visa. My mom's completely taking care of it) The thing I'm super happy about is that I now have money!!! Lots and lots of money!! My dad got me a Visa card! And it came in today!

The funny thing is that my dad has a thing on his card which only lets me take out a set amount at a time before the bill is payed. He kinda forgot to set an amount in that section, so the standard amount was used.... Which is way more than I could ever use in a month, cause I really don't spend that much.... And it's so much that I really don't want to tell you the amount because I really don't like talking about large amounts of money.

But I'll give you a hint: I have enough access with this card that I can probably buy a really good used car on credit... But if I did that then I might put my dad into a yucky debt. xD

On a side note, the first school semester is OVER!!! And I didn't fail math!! YAY!

And for the people who came up to me and had NO IDEA what じゃね means, it means see you later and is pronounced "jya-ne." So...
