    Smile Going to Japan to study Japanese for a year

    I pondered for a while which sub forum and potential thread on the site would be the most appropriate place to post this, but I eventually settled on here...Mods, feel free to move it somewhere else if needed.

    So, there were a lot of time consuming and expensive preparations in the way (visa, place to stay, student loans, getting into the school etc etc), but I'm now finally all set to go and study Japanese in Tokyo starting in January (the 16th) next year, at Kai Japanese Language School. I'm going to study there for a year, for now. If anyone on this site live in Tokyo (whether permanently or temporarily), or are going to go there at some point over the next year, whether on vacation, or to study like me, or for work, etc, and want to meet up at some point, go ahead and let me know if you want, I'm all for hanging out with fellow BL members when/if I can find the time.

    I'm assuming I'll probably not be able to resist occasionally posting some stuff in my forum blog while I'm there, though it probably won't be frequent. Or maybe I should just post here? I dunno. *shrug*

    Anyway, I just wanted to let people know I guess.

    I hope you enjoy your time and ztay in Japan.

    It's always hard to move away from home, let alone all the way to a foreign country with a culture and la guave deeply different from the one you're used to.

    While you're there, do tell us about your experiences in your new home.

    Naw, I wanna watch all three in a row, so I'll just wait until they're all out before watching them. Which of course means I won't get to watch them in theaters, and will have to settle for the blurays, but ah well.

    Have had some trouble finding an adapter for my computer's power cord that allows me to use it in Japan, so I haven't been able to go online much on the 4 hour battery. I also had trouble with my cellphone data bugging out, causing me to not be able to use Google maps to find a suitable electronics store that sells said adapter (and it meant I had trouble finding my school and other things as well)...That's all taken care of now though, and I have my data back, and I finally found an adapter, so I can finally go online now. I also have some stuff to write about now on my blog, so I'll do that over the next few days.
