Today, I slept until 6:40! I was so happy to have slept in. But sad that I didn't have time to workout before Day 2/3 of orientation. Apparently, you get the best results when you work out at the same time each day because your body is used to working out and is ready at that time. But I mean, any working out is great.
We went over classes that we were thinking of taking during orientation. Here are the books containing the possible classes:
There are 2 main classes that they recommend and I definitely want to take both. Also, they have a Training Class (exercise--awwWWwWw yeaAAah!, still on the track to personal training). So, I will also definitely take that course.
There are a few other courses taught in English that they also recommended, so I picked two that I might want to take: Gender Study II and Anthropology of Japan II. I met and had that interview today with the Anthropology teacher. She was incredibly nice. And during our interview, I understand almost everything! And was able to respond as well! I felt really happy after that. She was even talking pretty fast and I understood. Guys, I understood. That's so weird. wut.
Okay! So I am also thinking of taking Shodou, which is Calligraphy and Basketball, and Aerobics class. I figure I won't do the Basketball Club, so I could just take a class instead.
Then, there's the clubs, which I've narrowed down to Karate and Track & Field. I've already done Track in grade school, but I miss it. Karate would be awesome to do, but it's practice Monday-Friday. Track is only 3 days a week. The other days say to do your own workout, which would work if I end up taking those sports classes.
|So Many Scribbles of Confusion|
We were able to set up the meetings for using the gym today. Before being able to use the machines in the weight room, we have to have an hour lecture sort-of-thing for safety reasons. The treadmill is called Star Trac. lolol, Grant.
There was only 1 slot left to have the lecture tomorrow, otherwise I would have to wait until Monday. Tom jumped in when they said there was only 1 slot left, "I'll take it." And then, haha ^___^', well it was this really fast reflex and I looked at him right after angrily and said "OH, C'MON!" whoops. lol, I'm so desperate for dumbbells. I felt bad, but he let me take the slot for tomorrow. He is. really nice to have done that.
I told him I would train him tomorrow and he said he was up for it. Body strength circuit training and running (sprints). I hope he's ready. wahahaha.
We can still use the track and pool, so I decided to use the track and had it all to myself. It's a really small track above and around the basketball court. There are curtains by the window and I'm like THIS IS HAZARDOUS.
I even got to talk to one of the trainers there, though not very fluently. I get really excited when talking to trainers and didn't really have the proper vocabulary to ask her all the things that I wanted to. yet. So I kind of awkwardly ended the conversation and was like...bye...
The rest of the day, I made foodies, looked through the class books and found those other classes to consider, and went to the grocery to buy some stuff. CHEAP CHICKEN, YES. But why?! Why is it so cheap?! I'm going to eat it anyways. lolol halp. Then, I found raisins on sale! YES.
Before going out, I had my windows open, but with the screens on, but these little guys seemed to have snuck in:
That's not even half of them. The vacuum did its duty here. Probably its main duty while I stay here. I'll take these suckers any day over cockroaches. Sabrina said she found 4 already in Shibata Mansion, where most of the exchange students live.
Tomorrow, we have to hand in the rough draft of our schedule. I might just hand it in with all of those classes, try them out, and drop whatever is poo. I mean, not for me.
Watching the food channel in Japan is just as bad of an idea as it is in America. I think I might go out somewhere tomorrow. I really want to find Junie Moon for Lauren in Shinjuku and take pictures in secret.
I think something I miss a lot is the open fields of grass and adventure:
Well, these guys too, I guess.
*edit* no one realized I blurred out Sock Monkey? lolol.
AND THIS HAIR, WHY DID I GET RID OF IT?
Oi! Okay, that's all for now.
omg, this food channel. Bye-bye! =^.^=
