The following news was from last week's, before we had this blog up and running ;)
Well, my time here as been fun for the most part. I've been able to bond pretty well with the group that's going out with me, my zone. The senpai, or upperclassmen, left earlier this week, and left us with all their candy and stuff. I feel like I've learned more Japanese here in 3 weeks than I have in 3 years of high school classes. As of the day I'm writing this, I am in day 4 of the cereal challenge. for all meals, eat only cereal. I took it a step up and have decided the only drink I shall have will be the milk in the cereal bowl.
For anyone out there reading this who may be learning Japanese, I want to say you can do it. It's tough, but がんばって !
