Last Test and Blog Catch-up

More class in the morning, the final written test in the afternoon. I think I did okay, but maybe not as well as the second test. In the end it doesn’t matter too much since I’m not taking this for credit anyway…

So here’s my big admission: I’ve actually spent the last couple of hours working on catching up in my Journal here. As you’ve read, this has been a rather hectic and busy week and I just didn’t have time to blog. I think I captured the essence of everything that happened, but the sad part is we cram so much into a week, that I know I’m leaving things out. The most important memories, however, are the ones from Hiroshima and I think I wrote what I wanted to.

After the test, we all gathered with the Conversation Partners and made hand-rolled sushi. It was fun and tasty too—but then I was too full for dinner! I ate something anyway, then put the last finishing touches on my speech. Kishi sensei helped me look over it, made some last corrections and it’s now printed out and all set. YAY! All that’s left is practice and delivery next Wednesday. It’s about this time that you sit and think “gee, this program is almost finished already”. Hard to believe. I’ve got 10 days of vacation after that, but there’s just so much I still want to do.

I’m going to go out and do some Kyoto sightseeing tomorrow with Theo since he and I seem to be on the same wavelength on how to do sightseeing. We’ve planned to visit the Imperial Palace grounds, Nijo-jo castle and then out to Arashiyama. That’ll probably be enough for one day, then I may go to Osaka again on Sunday.

Time’s just winding down so quickly…
