Ever been to Kudamatsu? Or Kooder, as I like to call it? No?
Everything is going awesome. Only complaints: it is HOT and I am sweaty (I didnt pack any shorts). It's like returning to the land of my youth. Also, my hands are raw from carrying my luggage across the planet. But Im glad I over packed. I will not find Bristol board in this neighborhood. Last complaint, my computer sucks and only works with wireless. We dont have wireless. We have wireness. Luckily my new roommate is letting me use her computer. Oh, and last last complaint, I just showered and had no towel. It's in my bag that'll be delivered tomorrow night.
Today I traveled to my apartment. I took the train by myself. It made me really happy. This is exactly what I wanted from this trip, challenges in everything. Im in my euphoric phase, everything is new and I have to use my survival skills and brain cells. Not right now though, whenever I write these posts Im exhausted.
So I am one of three English teachers in my city. I live with one, and one Australian is across the hall. My roommate has been living alone for two months. And in this place that mustve been hard. The main attractions include the mall and a burger place (both are wicked awesome!). Roomie was extremely nice and picked me up from the train station, showed me around, took me to the grocery store, turned on the A.C. Euphoric phase.
This living situation reminds me of Massachusetts, where an hour of travel is needed to get to the city, and four hours to get to THE CITY (Tokyo=N.Y.).
I may not be making any sense. Im really a better writer than all this.
Once I get the camera/internet figured out I'll give you a video tour of the apartment. And trust me, getting the internet working is priority #1. I think I'll be doing A LOT of drawing and blogging here. You know, when Im not at the mall.
Only English TV station is discovery channel. SCORE!
