Happy about knowing how much money I actually have to spend. Here's a hint: My paycheck today could pay for 500 bowls of Ramen. That's athentic Japanese restaraunt ramen, not the 7¢ stuff you buy in the U.S.
Talked to a girl from Germany today. Introduced her to E Nomine. ipods are truly conversation starters.
Ate Unagi (eel) today. I even ate the head. Very tasty.
So the crash-coarse method of Japanese study... I'm not a fan. I've learned (glossed over) so much that I've basically retained nothing and am right back where I started. But on a positive note I can finally read hirigana competently. Time to study on my own. Time to translate some manga too...
