Oh hi?  
Oh dear, was my last update really last month? Oops! Long time no see LJ!

Okay, onwards!

May third, off memory, was another trip to Higashiyama Zoo. Not much had actually changed since the last time I'd been there, but they'd added wolves! Yay! I fucking love wolves xD Katsu was a chicken shit though and freaked out when a few of them started fighting lol He was scared of the lion roaring too actually ( ´艸`) 

I don't think I did much more during Golden Week, but on the eleventh all the foreign students went to Nara! Day one was not as interesting as day two, but here's a day one photo spam!


That night's dinner was amazing though♥


After dinner we all went to the conbini and then to one of the hotel rooms to have a small party for Kin-chan who had her birthday that day☆ I didn't stick around for all of it, but it was a good night.

The next day's breakfast xD


Now for the deer, because that's all I think of when I think of Nara xD


I'd really forgotten how vicious they were... and being bitten by a deer on the inside of the knee really fucking hurts. So many bites D: It was fun though xD After that we headed to the ninja museum which was interesting as well, but I'm far too lazy to sort through those photos right now lol

On the 16th there was another baseball game at Nagoya Dome, Dragons again, so of course I went xD We lost, but I really paid no attention to the game the entire time. I spent all of it talking to Katsu and one of his friends. Afterwards, Daniel, Devon, Ahi, Yumi, and I went to karaoke because why not? XD We got back at 2-something and I slept the entire next day until my phone woke me, and then Mizoguchi knocked on my door asking why I wasn't in class. Ugh, they're so strict about attendance this semester, how annoying.

Other than some tests in class, on the 25th we went to Ise! (It was raining the entire time)

It was actually a pretty good day, got to wander around a lot of shops. I bought some tea to send home, as well as some sake to send home as well lol I also bought myself a Totoro soft toy because why the hell not? XD Actually, since its mouth is wide open every night I think 'one day I'm going to wake up and freak out just because it looks so freaky sometimes'... but it hasn't happened yet lol

After that not much happened... on Friday, I went to a live with Kyla (damn it's been a while since I've done that), and met a few interesting people xD On the way back we ran into an American (who caught our attention by yelling 'Americans!' at us, we both turned around a said 'Australians' back) and had a conversation with him as we walked back to Chikusa station. Nice guy.

Last night, Jayne dragged me clubbing again. It was a hell of a lot more packed compared to Golden Week, holy shit. So, we got in, got our drinks, one step out of the drink line... "Hello! Where are you from?" And oh dear god, I got that question a lot. On the plus side, whenever they asked if I could speak Japanese we'd all switch to it and I'd be able to practice speaking more xDDD Turns out everyone wants to go to Melbourne/has been to Melbourne... why has everyone been to Melbourne but me?!?! 。・゚゚・(≧д≦)・゚゚・。

Can I just say that I don't think I'll ever be used to the touching part of club dancing? (,,#゚Д゚) Some guy slamming himself into my ass while yelling 'more' into my ear is creepy imo. And I kept getting dragged around bloody everywhere, oh hey, you're dragging me away from my friends and pushing me into the middle of a circle of you and your friends? Uhhh... JAYNE! Iamnotusedtothatwtfevenwasallofthatjfc.

It was good fun though, got to meet a few interesting people. At the end of the night some guy gave me his business card cause I said I was interested in working/living in Japan. Apparently they hire a couple of foreigners every year to help with English advertising and stuff. Might look into that sometime I guess. 

Left at eleven-ish again, got back around one-something... man I was so fucking tired, and even though I showered last night my hair still smells like smoke. D: I need another shower before I even contemplate doing homework lol Shower time! ε=ε=ヾ((●・ω・)ノ

Lol that's like me and the US! I mention I'm from there and people are like "Oh, hows New York?" Uh, I dunno?

Aaah, the clubbing scene.. yea, It's fun but at the same time...like what? lol. I had some guy try to put something in my drink once 0_0. And all guys will assume we love that kind of physical contact because we're foreign.

Haha, it's kinda odd how peoples' minds go straight to New York though, there's heaps of places in the US after all. (I was actually surprised when people mentioned Melbourne instead of Sydney cause usually it's always Sydney xD)

(°◇°;) Oh no! That's creepy... people are creepy D: lol Ah, I didn't think of that... I should have thought of it when someone responded to my saying I'm not very fond of clubs with 'but there's lots of clubs in Australia, right?'.

That's usually when you reply with something extremely stereo-typical back =)
When guys used to invite me to the love hotels with "Oh, your latina, so you love sex!" I'd reply with things like "Yeah! I love it as much as you love Sumo wrestling!" They'd give me a confused look and walk away.

Yeah, all the creepers hang at the clubs. Everyone goes for hook-ups, which is a shame because some people just love to dance. It's a bit better when you go to clubs foreigners don't usually frequent though.

Haha, I'll try that next time I get a silly comment☆

Other than the DJ (who was apparently also Australian), Jayne and I seemed to be pretty much the only foreigners there... was kinda odd, but waaaay better than the club called ID that I got dragged to last year; so many foreigners and way more packed.

Wow, that’s probably the most beautiful dinner I’ve ever seen lol. Also looks pretty freaking tasty too. Those pictures of the dear....they’re swarming! They’re adorable but the way they’re grouping around reminds me of zombies or something lol.
Jade: gardenhisuiai on June 12th, 2012 08:11 am (UTC)
It was an amazing dinner, I wish I could eat like that every night♥♥

Man, they're adorable when they're not swarming... then they're freakin' scary D: Haha, I didn't even think of zombies at first, but it's kinda like that isn't it~ lol
