Back in Japan!

For those of you who didn't know, I'm back in Japan! It was great being back in the states and seeing my friends, family, and true love bear. And eating veggie-friendly food. Yum. It felt so weird the night before I left, and I was soooo worried about arriving late and not being able to pay fees and complete forms on time. Needless to say, I had a very stressful and uncomfortable day-long travel experience, but I arrived safe and sound =)
Everything's basically the same, and I haven't done much yet besides grocery shopping and a few hours of karaoke. There are a lot of new students! Apparently last semester people were still afraid to travel here because of the earthquake and tsunami, but now there are about twice as many new students. I still haven't met many of them yet, but the dorms are pretty packed. I start classes again on Monday, which is freaking me out for some reason. I've heard the teacher for my speaking class is pure evil, so I'm definitely not looking forward to that...but I'm excited to get back into the swing of things. The first few weeks are always pretty stressful and full of review exams and whatnot, but it should get better soon. I'm looking forward to all of the breaks we have during spring semester and the warmer weather which should kick in a month or so. It's so cold here now! It's around 30 degrees everyday and it even snows! I haven't seen any yet, but I've seen ice and flurries.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, but I've had a pretty jetlagged and uneventful past few days. I'm going to meet my new speaking partner at karaoke tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have something to write about then. I promise my next posts won't be as boring!
