Off On Adventure

Not too far. Just in Kobe this week, staying with a longtime friend. But between random escapades here (going to meet another friend in Kyoto in a few hours), iffy internet access (not even sure as I write this whether or not I’ll actually get to post it online), and the fact that I haven’t prepared anything in advance (my bad), I think a longer post today is out of the question.

As a consolation prize for coming, here are some quick pictures I took of Michinoku Park in Kawasaki, Miyagi during Golden Week.

Definitely recommend going there if you have the time!

Hope you had a good week and will have more good weeks in the weeks to come!

No Post This Week

Unless you count this, which I’ve been told some people do. So, I guess here it is: a post!

Two sentences really isn’t enough, even for a non-post, so why not a few more?

I’m going to Japan in less than two weeks! Exciting! It’ll be nice to go back and enjoy the Japanese spring, which is probably the best season over there. Summer and fall are both nice, but spring is where it’s at.

Also, Persona 5 may go down in my mind as the most intense game I’ve played, new words wise. Already my personal dictionary has 359 words logged, including such recent gems as 書斎(しょさい), “a study”, such as お父さんは書斎に閉じこもっている, “My father has locked himself up in his study.” I wasn’t aware that 斎 was used in any other word than the family name 斎藤. Guess I was wrong.

I have to stop looking up new words or I’ll never finish this game before I go back to Japan. Guess we’ll see what aspect of my life I decide to forfeit for the sake of the game.

JET Interviews

The mysteries of the JET Program. Just who are those people? And why do they avoid the “T”?

Working at the Japanese consulate this past week, I got to see the JET program from the other side. Continue reading
