Here is the beginning. I've been accepted to Wisconsin-Platteville's program to Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies. I'll be doing a home stay from March 29th until July 29th. I'm planning on staying an extra 2 weeks so I can at least spend a little time in Tokyo and visit the rest of the country. I've got a big payment to W-P due in Feb. and I'm trying to get everything ready for my Freeman-Asia grant. Everything seemed to be going wrong, that I was almost sure I wouldn't get accepted to W-I or F-A.
I need to try to find a fairly cheap digital camera to take with me. The only problem with that is I probably won't have a computer that I can unload the pictures onto. Maybe I'll send the memory cards back home and have dad rotate them out for me. Perhaps I should scrap the digital idea...
I am going to work as much as I can for the next 2 months, and maybe pick up a second job if I can find one with flexible enough hours. I've still got a lot of forms and things to do for my W-P application, but I'm going to try to finish as much as I can this week. I'm also planning on sitting in on one of the lower level Japanese classes or the new 1 hour course that Holman sensei is going to have. It'll be a little sad to be free when everyone else is in school and to be in school when everyone else is free.
Let's see how this goes! I hope this isn't the only entry that will be in this blog!
