It’s currently 3:39 PM. I’m on an escalator. No wait, now it’s 3:41 and I’m about to get on a subway. Oh look, it’s here. And now I am on the subway. It’s 3:42PM. Anyways, I’m heading home. Today I had 6 classes. I have after school activity, cooking, today and should have stayed for all 7 classes but I couldn’t. For some reason I’m really beat up. I’m just so dead. I’m tired. Anyways, I also have to work on a presentation that I will be doing next week on Saturday. I have to finish it this week because next week I have a school trip. I will be going to Nagasaki. I was supposed to have this trip back in like November but it was cancelled. Anyways, at these trips, and all of school in general, we are not allowed to have any electronics. So, I can’t work on my presentation. I’m pretty excited but bummed out we can’t take electronics. Also, this means that I will not be able to post any blogs next week. I will write in my NOTES about what I have been doing and post them when I come back. And now it’s 3:48PM. I just got out of the subway and about to get out of the station and I’m out. It’s 3:49PM. Wow, I write slow. I’m currently walking by a Starbucks. And now I’m walking by a hair salon. It’s 3:50PM. I’m almost home. Lol. Sorry that I’m doing this. I guess I want y’all to know exactly what I’m doing? Haha. Well it’s now 3:51PM. I am home. Right, about next week. I will post what I have been doing after I return. Welp, see ya in a bit, later.
It’s currently 7:50AM. I’m heading to school…duh. Haha. Anyways, I’m currently hating the position am in on the subway. I’m literally surrounded by men. I don’t have a problem but it’s just that we are a little too close. It’s pretty crowded. I thought it was going to be alright around this time but I guess I was wrong. Anyways, it’s Thursday. That means just today and tomorrow of school. Next week I have a school trip. We will be going to Nagasaki. We were supposed to go in November but there was a terrible Typhoon and we had to have it cancelled. So, we will be going next week. I’m pretty excited. I don’t know what there is or anything. No wait, I lied. I had received a book about Nagasaki. I do know of it from school. Anyways, I looked over the book and read about it’s past and places there are and a couple other things. I do want to visit the peace park. It’s on my bucket for life but not on my Japan bucket list. I would put it on my Japan bucket list but I wasn’t surer would have the opportunity to even go. Well, it’s almost time for me to go. We’re not allowed to have phones at school. We’re not even allowed to take them. If we wanted to take them on the subway to listen to even just music, you have to fill out a paper. Anyways, i will write more after school. I have after school activities and also juku. So…see ya in a bit.

Thanks again! おやすみなさい⭐。(oyasuminasai) Good Night.
Today is a very short day. It was the first day of school. I was able to leave early due to the students having to take a test. Because I am the exchange student I am not required to take tests. Any in fact. Of course I do take tests in some classes but these are exams. I only took one exam. It was an English exam. I was required to go to school that day and to take test. After I finished it they told me that although I took the test they would be unable to grade it because I was an exchange student. I didn’t know how to react. I was happy I guess? I was able to try an exam. Although it was useless since they can’t grade it it was a cool common experience. It was pretty simple. Most of the test was in English. The only parts I did not answer was due to those parts being in Japanese. I tried reading them but I would get confused as to what the question was asking for.
It’s currently 11:03AM. I’m going to meet up with some friends for Christmas today. We were supposed to meet up at 11AM. I’m running really late…. I was on the phone and didn’t realize how much time I actually had. Lol, I’ve seen so many couples and it’s still kinda early? Anyways, I’m really excited to meet up with them. Today we are planning on going to a Christmas Market and then go Ice Skating. I’ve never gone ice skating before so I’m hoping for it to be very fun. There are a couple other students who haven’t gone ice skating before. Lmao. We’re going to learn together. I’m actually hoping that it will be the same as roller skating. When I was as first learning how to roller skate it was very painful. I kept falling and ended up with many bruises. It’ll probably be the same with ice skating…I hope. I actually have a fear of ice skating. The shoes have blades on the bottom and I always thought that if you fell you can get cut by them. I still think it’s very true, I don’t actually know.
I am currently on my way back home. It’s 12:38PM. We are getting out of school early because of testing??? I don’t actually know. Lol. Anyways, this past Saturday I moved into my next host family. We now live in motoyama. Anyways, today at school during English Communication II we did origami. My classmates gave me origami as a gift. I received all types of different origami. I am very happy! I really do have great friends. I really wish to get closer to them. Well gotta go now. Bye bye
It’s currently 9:33 AM. I’m on my way to Gokiso to meet with my school friends. Today we will be going to an Aquarium! Then we will go eat pancakes and then we will go shopping! I am really really really excited to go with them! This will be the first time to go with friends in such a large group.
PS: there are pictures of this day in THE PHOTOS section.
It’s currently 8:07AM. I’m on my way to school. I’m transferring onto the next subway and I’m hoping nothing funny happens because that happened on the last subway I just got off at. Lol. So here’s what happened, I had just barely made it onto the next train at my home station. It’s raining outside so I had to bring an umbrella. Oh how I hate my umbrella now…. Around the time I was getting on the subway it was already full. Like, extremely full. I managed to squeeze myself into one of the cars. I learned from last time about watching my head. I did. Because I had just barely made it the doors were closing. Then they closed. All was going well until I realized that my umbrella wasn’t moving. I check to see why…. My umbrella had gotten stuck on the door!!! I was so embarrassed. But actually I was more scared. I had no idea what to do. Remember the subway was already full. I was the last to get on and my door doesn’t open until the fourth next stop. I tried to take out my umbrella by pulling it upwards to not disturb those on the other side. I needed it to come out because it might break or it might hit something on the other side. By this point I just started to panic. I began pulling the umbrella towards me and to others. Instead of saving space I made people move closer to each other and just created space for myself. I was scared as to what to do. My umbrella was not moving and it was just stuck in the door. There was a woman next to me and she decided to help me. I was so glad that she was kind enough. So, here we were both pulling on an umbrella to come out of the door. Eventually she gave up and said sorry. I was still pulling on my umbrella. After a while I decided to give up and wait until the fourth stop. I have to not only watch out for my head now but also my umbrella. Haha…
It’s 6:16 PM. I’m on my way home from after school activities. Today was Thursday so that meant ESS. Once again I was the English Teacher. I should consider being a teacher in my future. For some reason, a really weird one, after coming to Japan all I’ve been told was to become a teacher. Maybe just maybe after my Exchange year I can go back to America and then go to college. Probably do another Exchange year in college. I really am glad to have done this Exchange. I do miss home though. 我嫌我的家人!!!!! It’s almost time for Christmas. I don’t know if to call home or not. I really want to see them but I don’t want to. I might cry. Lol.
It’s the day after the first inbound trip. I am currently late on my way to school. I am just very tired. My family made me breakfast but I didn’t have enough time to eat so I just left. I feel terrible but my body just was too tired. I literally feel like fainting. My body aches everywhere. At the trip we would sleep late then wake up early. There was a lot of walking and standing so I am tired from that. Yeah, I had fun but the aftermath isn’t the same. I really wish I’d stayed home and rested. Christmas is almost here and I wish to be back in America. I miss spending family times together. Here I don’t really have a lot of family time. I’d say that’s the one thing I miss most: Family. I enjoy Japan and all but it’s not the same being in a country you enjoy and being in country you lived and grew up in. My body is still aching while I am writing this. Lol. Well, it’s almost time for me to go. USJ was fun and I really enjoyed the time with the other inbound students. Bye bye!
It’s currently after school; 6:16PM. I’m on my way home from school. I’m still tired. Today I stayed for after school activities. Yeah, school is until this late. Well anyways, I’m glad I can to school. It was fun. I am EXTREMELY hungry though. I didn’t eat anything all day. I had left my money in the backpack I took to USJ and because I was running late I left my lunch at home. I didn’t eat anything and I also couldn’t buy anything. My stomach like every once in a while is growling and I’m really hoping that it isn’t loud. It’s embarrassing. Lol. Anyways, today went fast? I don’t know if it’s because I’m really tired and everything is just going by or I’m hungry or maybe because of the changes in the schedule. 我想我的家人。I really want to see them. Lol. I don’t even know. I’m
