Walking around campus, it was pretty much just tables with food.
Chocolate covered bananas-on-a-stick again:
And a Free Stage where people could do anything:
But inside one building, there was an open market where a lot of used clothes, jewelry, etc. were sold. There was also a booth with a ton of anime and video game stuff.
They also had a few sweets being sold like small donuts, Baskin Robbins Ice Cream, and churros. Oh, and there was a type of fishing, where you have a small net and catch the fish with it in a little pool. Don't worry, MoMo, I didn't try this time and come home with a new friend with a broken fin. XD
Rather than that, the exchange students had their presentations to do. These were taken and sent to me in a manilla folder that was supposed to explode after 7 seconds of viewing. That is a fire hazard and did not happen. But these pictures actually were sent to me.
I didn't stay long after that presentation. I was feeling like I needed some alone time and went home instead, finished some homework, and read the night away. Oh, there was chocolate, too. OhHhH, there was chocolate. =]
These past few days, Grant and I have been able to hang out a few times, too! Of course, we went to a bunch of grocery stores.
Here are some flowers along the way that I don't know if MoMo has ever seen before:
Grant got some goodies from the bakery that he shared with me. The bakeries here are amazing.
Here is from another night, but we were attempting to show the huge size of the apples here:
I shall attempt again with another picture later. ^___^'
Last night after venturing around a bit, we cooked some dinz. Apparently, I got Grant into craving something sweet after finishing a meal. lolol, oh gosh. For that, I am sorry. But we walked to a bakery that he's been to, to check out some goodies. It had the most amazing store name font.
We ended up not buying any chocolate, but it's always fun venturing around =]. Shinjuku is a pretty darn awesome place.
Oh yeah, found these gems for 105 yen each at a Book Off (Japanese version of Half-Price Books):
School is going pretty good right now. My class was cancelled for Thursday, which I have mixed feelings about. I feel like there have been a lot of classes that we haven't had already, due to the festival and such, and I don't have too much time here and want to learn as much as possible.
I remember being in high school and my art teacher was asking people about their schedules. She found out someone had about 3 study halls and asked them "Don't you want to take advantage of being able to take all of these classes and learn as much as you can?" At the time, I was thinking in my head, "pfffft, girl, plz." But, now I'm like:
Tom is currently running an experiment at school. He lined up a railing outside with 1 yen coins. They've remained on the railing for about a week now. He thought they were taken at first, but they just blew off and we found them and put them back in place. XD
Kaldi is getting in a lot of Christmas decorations, even Advent calenders.
This post is all over the place.
Here is a sign at school with some unfortunate kid's face:
And here is another spider chilling around town for you:
And the melons here look exactly like the ones in Yoshi's Story:
