one word... WET!
So today im suppose to be writing a little differently from how i write. maybe more in depth...im not sure. this is supposed to be a post card for home. something that we can look at latter and be like oh i remember that. oh those nice memories and feelings..but hmm im not sure how to fully do that so im just going to write like a normally do. Also this is supposed to be maybe one paragraph...There is now way i can write only one paragraph.
Im not sure how i fully felt about today. In a way it totally sucked but then again there was this odd bonding that went on through the group.
The day started out with me and my roommate going for a walk at like around 7am. we went by the lake and just looked around. It was nice,however, there was a lot of trash by the lake front which kind of surprised us. After that we got our bikes and had an orientation of JCMU. Then when that was done with the whole group went and ate at a ramen shop but because it was kind of miserable i didn't feel like risking and taking chance at a shop that i wasn't sure that if i would like anything. So in the end me and another friend just went to CoCos, which is kind of like the jap version of a Denny. It was nice. i had french toast and my one friend had pizza. after that we were supposed to meet up with everyone so we went out..in the rain and of course we got lost..sigh. Im telling ya we would have been in a horrible state if this one guy from another program didn't decide to go with us!! so once we caught up with everyone we were all supposed to shoot at Hikone castle today but because of the continuous rain none of us really wanted to. i mean we could but who wants to get there stuff wet?! So instead of shooting we went to the grocery store. it was awesome! it had food on the bottom floor and various clothing stores on the other floors and then at the top there was a 100 yen store!!! this place kind of made the day better! The only problem was that when in the store and outside of it biking around we looked and laughed at by many young asian people (like high schoolers).
So after all of that we went back home. Got separated from a the group a million times and oh yeah got even more wet. We when got back in the place i swear like everyone put on there sleep wear and just kind of did nothing because nothing was all we felt like doing. I however did do my landry with my next door neighbor and that in itself was its own adventure. ( All in jap! and only a sheet that translated the words.. not the directions) While it was washing me and her hung out in the weight room and tryed to get all the broken machines work..fail.
In the end i had a very emotional, melancholy, up down crazy day that wasnt that bad! lets hope tomorrow is better .
