I again woke up pretty early on the second day of school (probably because of jet-lag). Knowing I wouldn't be able to go back to sleep, I got up and got ready.
|Some Engrish Kilo found on the label of the towel|
I bought the day before.

to risk ruining all of my rice.

After class was over, we met in the B classroom and had a meeting with Shoji Azuma. He is the director of the program whom we met during the orientation meetings. Or, at least, that's when I met him.
He explained to us a thing called the "honeymoon period." He said that most, if not all of us, would eventually feel our excitement level drop dramatically, and that there will be a period during which we reject Japan. He told us to hang in there, and we can once again return to our heightened state of excitement, called the acceptance stage. We talked about a couple other things, such as the difficulty of the classes, and then it was off to lunch.
|This cost me approximately $2.30.|
|Everybody has a bike in Japan. Except for us gaijin.|
|This is somebody's house.|
|Most of the posts along the street have this|
weird texture. Also, look, it's a butterfly.
|It is not hard to get beer or cigarettes.|
|A little temple on a street corner.|
|Pokemon is EVERYWHERE here.|
|I tried taking a picture of the bird nest again.|
It still didn't come out well.
It was a long walk (it always is), but we finally arrived at the karaoke place.

On the way home, Ayaka and some of the others decided to go to a sushi place, but the other half of us, including me, were too tired, and we had spent enough money for the day, so we stopped by a 7-Eleven and walked home.
|This has salmon in it, and it costs just over a dollar.|
