The Exam—and the Beer Garden

Busy day in the morning as usual, and then the dreaded written test in the afternoon. AND, I had reason to dread…

I don’t think I did very well. If I did, it was probably an accident. Things are coming so fast at me now, that when I took a look at the test sheet, everything just drained right out of my brain and into one big, black bucket. It took me forever to try and fish out the answers and write them down intelligently. It was really kind of scary for me.

So to put that all behind us and get out for a bit of fun, we all decided to go downtown to a “Beer Garden”. It was on the roof of the Takashimaya Department Store, and is sort of a one-price-eat-and-drink-all-you-can sort of thing. It ended up being breezy and cool and quite pleasant. Since I don’t drink, that wasn’t a draw, but there was plenty of food to chow down on and glass after glass of interesting sodas. I won’t mention here anything about the state of my classmates at the end of the evening, but I can vouch that a good time was had by all.

After the place closed around 10:00 PM, everyone else wanted to go to another English-style pub for a while; after leading them all there, I made my own way back to the dorms by an interesting multi-train route I’d never taken before. Just being able to figure it out and get from “A” to “B” made me feel quite proud of myself.
