New Blog!

Hey there! I've decided to continue blogging at a different blog. The MEXT archives and some of my travel posts will remain here, but I'll be moving some stuff over. Hope to see you there!

Gak is the sound that a person makes when choking, or at least that's what this onomatopoeia site says. 

And I'm definitely undergoing some mental choking right now. I had a presentation yesterday, and I have two book reports due tomorrow 5 p.m. Book reports, I should add, that I can't write because I haven't finished the books yet (one book arrived in the mail today a week after I ordered it, and my friend passed me the other one yesterday).

So when I opened up the book blog today to post one of the already-written reviews (thankfully there are holidays where I can read a lot), I just... paused. I couldn't even bring myself to write anything there, because I didn't really want to pretend that I'm on track with reading and reviewing when I'm currently off. I'll be fine tomorrow, after I submit everything (although I have another presentation next Tuesday - this is why entering two zemi's may not be the smartest choice), but today...


I don't I've written a negative-ish post for a long time (I think the last time was after my gaidai exams?), but yeah, I felt like I had to write this, or just stare at my computer for a few hours because my brain froze.

I'm definitely not discouraging people from coming, I love it here, most of the time, but I guess this is one of those "it's not all peaches and cream" posts that appear very infrequently.

Although I make sweets when nervous/stressed. I made Oreo marshmallow bars
the day before presentation (so, Monday). 

Oh yeah, and I wanted to apologise too. I know it's MEXT application season for a lot of you guys, and you're understandably nervous, but please, read through the FAQs and the Anti-FAQ (links are all on this page) before you ask me questions. I'd love to help, but my stress levels are very high right now and I can't spend too much time answering your questions, especially if I've answered them before or said that I can't answer them. So yes, I don't mean to be snappish, and if I am, I'm sorry. I know you're nervous too.
