:: My Urban Eyes ::All that I see, and then some.
There was a registration lottery to decide the order we sign up for classes in. You basically reach your hand into a box and pull out a number.
The girl in front of me got 52. I got 388. ...out of 433. >_<
My language classes will be automatically scheduled, so I only had to pick two afternoon lecture classes. My first *five* choices--Onna to Otoko, Body and Communication, a gender studies class, a current events class, and most painfully, Ceramics, closed beofre I could sign up. So instead I'm in an athropoligical perspecitves class and a class about youth in Japan. The subjects aren't exactly what I wanted, but they aren't *too* bad. The killer is my schedule--I have one afternoon off each week, but three days a week I have a three or four hour break to kill. Not to mention that I'm in class until 5:30 on Friday. T_T I know that will be good time to do my homework and all, but I think it will get very very annoying after a while.
Sigh. Well, next semester it can't get worse, ne! -_^ Also, I think they offer some kind of ceramics over the intersession, so maybe I can do that.
A quick note--Karri, hiii! ~huuuuuuuuuuuug~ So awesome to hear from you--I'm glad you like the blog! I hope that I can keep updating it this frequently! I also hope that you and Sean and the kids are well. ^_^
Oh, that's something else to note--when I'm in my homestay I probably won't be able to update quite this often, and not at all on the weekends. Don't worry though--during those long breaks I'm sure I'll get some writing done. :P

I'm so glad to hear that you made it to Japan ok. I've been thinking about you all week! My internet has been at the stage of "argueing w/ the installer" so I'm at work reading your blog right now. I'll tell you the same thing my mom always tells me when I go away:
BE SMART AND HAVE FUN!

Too bad about the classes, but maybe something can happen for you over your break on the ceramics. I know that is big over seas! Please post an address when you get your homestay! Aunt Pat said there was a Typhoon, hope you can tell us about that!
