A bit of information on my behalf:
currently I have about 5 days till school (starts on 5th April), I'll get my uniform a day before and at first I'm going to attend all classes, but after a while, I can choose, which ones will stay. So with clubs too - I can try what I wish and then choose one. I think that's really kind of the school staff to let me do so, don't you think?
But one thing is absolutely certain - I'm in the humanitarian team. But they're yet to have picked me a certain class form the bunch. I'll just wait and see.
Anyways, on to me diary!
Let's call it the Great Spring Cleaning Day. We spent the whole day cleaning the temporary lodgings of otoosan. Me, Ayumi and okaasan. We cleaned the tatami, the fusuma, the windows, anything you can possibly think of. Yet again, very Japanese.
During a break we ate meron-pan, some snacks and mochi and drank tea. We drink it a lot here. I hope my teeth won't be black in the end...
After the whole ordeal, which actually was really fun, we went to a gyoza place run by a Chinese married couple. They were so kind and lively! Both were really happy looking people and a lot more talkative than Japanese, which is really unbelievable. The wife asked me tons of questions the whole time we ate, and she was actually the first person in Japan this time around who thought I was 「かわいい」(kawaii). I felt really out of place at first, because I had forgot the feeling when someone says that. Shiver me timbers! (Last year, I heard the word about 200+ times a day, 7 days straight.)
Went to the Oomoriyama Zoo today and I saw the giraffe (キリン) with my own eyes for the first time in my life! It felt numbingly awesome! I had only eyes for them and one of them had only eyes for me. Just magical. Mogic! Also, I was given a year-long pass for the zoo by okaasan. It has a tiger on it! How cool is that?
Also today, I tried Japanese yoghurt for the very first time. It was delicious! You all should try it when you happen to be in Japan. おススメでしょう 。
*Just an ending note.
When school starts, my posting rate might run a bit low, but anyway, keep on checking back!
