Graduation!


Yea for graduation! Boooo for saying goodbye to so many people. T_T Here are some pictures of everyone... omoide!

This is what happens when it starts raining, a huge gust of wind comes up, and the photographer gets wet and the subjects get worried. Me and Noriko (not my speaking partner, but another Noriko... a really common name).

Ceramics Sensei is wearing a suit! Quick, take a picture, take a picture! -_^

Robby ("Robbie" in my mind, though!)'s friends gave him this shirt for Christmas, daring him to wear it in Japan. When is better than at graduation? This is during the luncheon, where they had an amazing spread... and free beer. In huge bottles... like the one Robby is holding.

Travis! His hair really grew out while we were here, hehe. He's from Texas, but he's really nice. ~huuuuuge wink~

Ridwan and Karen.

Robby and I with Komura-sensei, whom we happened to catch at a bad time. -_-

Me and Matt. ...and the ceiling. -_^

The darling Elaine, whose Japanese is so good that she's taking classes in Japanese this semester.

Ian, Robby and I. We were in the same language classes, both kanji and speaking, both semesters.

Ashley, who I'm really going to miss--especially going to karaoke together.

With Chae.

My roomie Georgia. She's from Australia, and we get along so well it's scary.

Jen rented a traditional outfit worn at graduations... I think it's called a hakama. It's not a kimono, but it is kimono-esque.

Joe and Josh. Since we always use last names in Japanese class, I didn't know Josh's first name until today. -_-

Robby and Molly were in my classes this semester, too. And Robby looks... befuddled? Hehe.

I met Takashi on a trip to Kobe, and I caught him at the graduation. When I asked him why he made the face, he said, "That face is all of my feelings! Happy, sad, sabishii (lit. lonely--sad that people are leaving), hung over, all of it!"

Yea for people! Boo for saying goodbye. Meccha sabishii.

GAAAH! SO MANY POSTS!!! We're so PROUD of you!!!!!!!(lots more "!!!!"'s)!!!!! I hope the trip goes well and smoothly and that they give you lots of those little packets of peanuts and sodas and waters. I hope that you can fit everything into your suitcases! Those ceramics looked so pretty. I sorta feel bad that you have to come home, but I'll be happy to see you. That was such an awesome experiance! Let me know when you make it back to your mom's (like, a short blog post or something).
 
I sure hope they give me a lot of peanuts--the first leg of my flight is 12 hours! Hehe. Last time I flew on Northwest, which stunk, but this time I'm on United, so I'm going to have my own personal screen to watch stuff on, yea! I'm thinking it will be a much better experience ^_^
