SO LET'S JUST PRETEND I DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT POSTING PHOTOS FOR OVER A MONTH OKAY? OKAY.

TRAVEL STUDY ALBUMS GOOOOO
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

FORGIVE MEEEEE ;A;

To be honest, I've been having trouble keeping up with LJ/DW in general. OTL

BUT ANYWAY ABOUT MY TRIP.

IT WAS AMAZING
And expensive
BUT WORTH IT
And also Japan is just made out of stairs. Like I'm pretty sure that's the reason the majority of them are so tiny. If there was anything that made me feel like a fat American, it was that. (And also the fact I couldn't buy any fashionable clothes because they are designed to exclude gaijin or something apparently and a large is actually a small I mean dammit Japan.)

Also I found out we learned nothing of value in class. I mean we learned how to get a guy's number and get a date or whatever but not how to order donuts I mean really? Never use Genki guys.

I'm not kidding, chapter 1 of Genki is like, "DENWA NO BANGO HA NAN DESU KA? WHAT IS YOUR PHONE NUMBER? RESUTORAN NI IKIMASENKA? SHALL WE GO TO A RESTAURANT?" But I mean like one of the students there had to teach us how to talk to the cashier at Mister Donut and I was really starting to doubt our education system. I mean seriously, if you can't order a donut what can you do?
(I'm mostly exaggerating here and I love the Genki textbook, but damn this was ridiculous.)

Also I'm starting to notice how Tumblr has affected my typing already in this post, so I'm-a just apologize right now. ._.

I do have more to say about the trip, but I think I'll call this an entry and leave the rest for a later post. I'll talk about it more in the future, really! I just keep looking my journal and thinking "I SHOULD'VE JUST TOOK MY LAPTOP AND POSTED EVERY DAY Y U NO DID DIS?" But then I remember customs and I'm kind of glad I didn't, but OKAY I'M RAMBLING NOW POST END HERE IT IS.

SO I'M ACTUALLY ALIVE??
And also I am a terrible friend. OTL
And if you haven't already removed me from inactivity you are very tenacious. Or patient. Or forgetful. Or see me on other sites.
I dunno what happened, but after the whole LJ affair, I kind of lost my will to journal, you know? 8|
That, and this semester was particularly busy. Like, legitimately "HOLY CRAP I HAVE TO WRITE THREE PAPERS AT ONCE AND WHERE DID THIS OTHER HOMEWORK COME FROM AND WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU WANT ME TO READ MURAKAMI'S 1Q84 IN FOUR DAYS IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE???" and not just me being on Tumblr the whole time.

But... uh...
As for what I actually came here to say~!
You know that travel study to Tokyo I was supposed to go on last year and then the earthquake and the tsunami happened so it got cancelled?
We're doing that this year instead.
And also
We're leaving this Thursday morning.

AAAAAAAAAAAAH GUYS I AM SO EXCITE.

But also really nervous because I've never been on a plane before and I'm really afraid that I'm going to accidentally Spanish when I'm supposed to Japanese. ;;a

Anyway, I'm-a take ridiculo amounts of photos so I can show them to you when I get back. /o/

Um... 8|

Remember that post where I said the travel study was still on?

Er.
Well.
That was a lie. "OTL

Actually though, I'm relieved. I won't have to worry about convincing Mom to let me go or convincing myself to not be worried about health stuffs, and this gives me another year to build up my funds and Japanese skills. It sounds like we're going to try again next year, and we should get all of our money back, so I don't feel like it was a big loss. It's almost advantageous. Well, for me anyway.

I'm super disappoint that we won't get to go while our friends are [were?] studying there though. That would've been so fuuuun. ;;

/sob

Okay, I'm off to get crap done before Detour~
