Earlier tonight, as I was driving home through a neon lit city street in Japan, blasting the stereo... I realized for a second how amazingly cool that would seem to way too many people on here.

Make the move!

I clicked yes for school/homestay as my trip is for Work Experience for my University course (teacher training). I'm gonna be working in a Japanese Elementary School in Tsukuba for 5 weeks starting in May (but I'm staying in Japan for another week afterwards to play a little!) Don't worry about the language barrier, The family I'm staying with has daughter (5 years old) who's fluent in both English and Japanese whos going to look after me lol!

HAI! ^.^ My school has a program so I will be going to a city in Hyogo for the month of June and part of July and staying with a host family.

It always seems to be that I either have time to go to Japan but lack funds, or I have funds and lack time.

I have a tentative plan to take a trip down memory lane in Osaka in the fall, but it might be delayed until 2011 (again).

I am hopefully doing an exchange program to Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto this Fall. I am working on my essay I have to turn in with my exchange program. Ritsumeikan and my college are partner universities, my international advisor told me that the students at our school normally are able to do the exchange with no problem, so I am hoping to have to same results as well.

I've got an omiai set up by my parents and relatives.

I'm not too crazy about it since my others didn't work out but I'll keep an open mind when I visit the girl later this year.

Late 2010 is a possiblity. Me and a friend planned to go, but he is still saving up. The trip may get delayed to 2011.

Has anyone checked the coring room?
