This year, I actually Tuesday and Wednesday (unlike the lucky Osaka GaiDai people). Plus, I'm lazy (and couldn't book Studio Ghibli tickets in time). So, here's a quick rundown on what happened.
Monday: It's a holiday (yay!) but the trip organised is to FujiQ. And due to health reasons (:/) I decided not to go (some of the rides have a 120 degree drop...). So, I went to kendo. Alone, since Simone was a FujiQ and Rena was with her parents. It was quite fun, since another uni was training together. But it also means that me (being the noob I am) train outside in the corridor.
Tuesday and Wednesday: School. Sigh, and since the canteen is closed (everyone else is having a holiday), we don't have time to eat lunch (everyone goes to the same few spots). The result is Rena and I starving through 3rd period. At least on Wednesday we have a school trip - to Suntory Beer Factory. But, in Japan, the legal age to drink is 20 (the irony).

Afterwards, Simone and I head to Shinjuku to just walk about. It's fun and we ended up buying really oishii (and expensive) cake from Takashimaya foodhall.
Friday: Lazy day! I studied in the morning and spend the afternoon at Marcus and Christal's house. It was so fun and someone please remind me to buy Genji Pie as soon as I see it.
Saturday: Kendo! And then, to the Ramen Museum. Seeing as Simone and I have such small appetites, we only tried the Sapporo Ramen (but it was so good!). And um, ice-cream and mizu-ame (literally, water-candy, but is the clear sort of sweet that you eat of the stick. I believe you can buy it from Chinatown during Chinese New Year).
|Awesomely, I've been seeing this English lesson on the train. It's set in |

Altogether, not a very exciting week, but certainly very fun and restful. Now, I have to figure out how to increase my study time >.<
