Tea Ceremony Club

[First of all, apologies—I created my page and then forgot to paste the real entry over the lorem ipsum filler text! Baka da yo!]

We had class in the morning, and I felt like I was actually understanding the particular topic of the day for a change. Understanding seems to be going okay, it’s the actually speaking and remembering that’s not so good. I know that someday it’ll all “click” and I’ll begin recognizing the grammar more and more and be able to actually use it when conversing. In the meantime, I’ll do the best I can…

Last week I thought that I was going to meet Yasu at the Sweet Pepper cafe for lunch, but when I went there he didn’t show up. No problem—I spoke with some of the other CPs and we had a good time. Later I found out that he was running around looking for me, so I guess I must’ve screwed up the meeting place. I’ll have to apologize for my stupidity…

In the afternoon, we had a tea ceremony with the Tea Ceremony Club. It was different from the Sencha-type ceremony we did back home, and much more the “traditional” type we think of in America. I apparently got pretty good marks on my tea-whipping technique for a rank amateur! It was very interesting and a lot of fun.

Then it was back to the dorms to attempt to study, but I’m really tired and will probably go to bed early. Tomorrow’s the much-anticipated Kindergarten visit!

    You tricky little devil. There is no such thing as an online translator from latin to english, assuming that it IS latin. I tried to decipher it.
    I bet it is a really exciting story! Maybe you got behind the wheel of a tiny little car and went zooming along looking for cute road signs. Or maybe you encountered one of the bears on your walk to class and it scared you so much that you no longer can speak OR write in any of your known languages. OOOhhh. So much to imagine. TRANSLATION PLEASE! 😛
