I'm in my city, Kuwana. Also, I live in the getto, I literally live on the other (wrong) side of the tracks. Melissa likes it because she says it's exciting and then she adds "but no, really it's scary". So that is why I always leave a light on when I leave because I don't want to come home to darkness. I did laundry today and aired out my futon. I have also recuperated my lost adapter! True to Japanese nature no one stole it or moved it. I have been trying to be less carefree because I sincerely believe i could leave my laptop here right now, go for a walk around the mall and no one would touch it. In fact, I think someone might even clean it. Ok I'm exagerating, but my point has been made. I miss some things about home but I haven't been completely homesick yet. There are always people to meet and places to see so the only days I stayed in were to nurse a cold I had at the beginning of the week. For the cold I blame the bipolar weather, it's hot and humid one day and the next it rains. Can't wait for winter, oh yes minus 2 degrees and I'll pull out a scarf! My friend Melissa is buying winter boots tomorrow, I think I'll call my sneakers winter boots.
Besides settling in there isn't much else to write here. Like I tell some people, I make a million mental notes every day but it's not something I can sit and write about. When I see a beautiful scene I almost want to keep it to myself so as to not diminish it in any way. Hmm, I'm starting to sound a little too poetic for my taste. Pictures will be added when I have the internet at home. So in about a month. There are some on facebook and for those of you without that particular social networking tool (ahem, Steve) then use someone else's account (ahem, Dan or Marjo)
Blog ya later fellow dorks!

I arrived over a week ago and a million things have happened. Today's my first real day off and I don't know what to do first. Training is brutal but I gave my first class yesterday and managed to not burst into tears. Ok maybe I went into the bathroom and quietly wept for 5 minutes but then I was fine. I have to go and find food because the downside of staying at a hotel is that I have no kitchen and restaurant food starts to affect your brain juices. I've been mean lately :(
Shall post more soon!
