Burgers in Osaka

JAPAN | Saturday, 7 May 2016 | Views [326]

Although I would never want to be one of those people who goes to a country and only ever eats at McDonalds, I see nothing wrong with occasionally wanting a literal taste of familiarity. In Paris, this took the form of a Friday routine of getting a ... Read more >

Everybody Needs a Break

JAPAN | Tuesday, 3 May 2016 | Views [324]

Saturday, I got confirmation that the children woke up early when I woke up to the sounds of little feet running around the house. I checked the time, debated whether or not it was worth getting up this early and decided it wasn't. Two hours later, ... Read more >

Meeting My Host Family

JAPAN | Monday, 2 May 2016 | Views [409]

Do to a miscommunication, we ended up showing up to the place to meet with our host families at the same time our host families were arriving. This was a mistake, because they were supposed to have a brief orientation before meeting us. So they went ... Read more >

Celebrating a 21st Birthday Like Americans in Japan

JAPAN | Friday, 26 Feb 2016 | Views [228]

Friday was Nicole’s 21st birthday, and also a class-free day, so on Thursday, we met up to celebrate it. The planning process was a little scattered, to put it mildly. Nicole, one week prior: “It’s my 21st birthday, so let’... Read more >

Beer and Buildings (the title sounds better in Japanese)

JAPAN | Sunday, 14 Feb 2016 | Views [395]

At noon, my building headed over to Aikawa for an event with the Ariyama-sans. In this case, the only Ariyama-san present was the son, and, after checking to make sure everyone was present, or at least accounted for, and making a few announcements, ... Read more >

Okonomiyaki and Yarn

JAPAN | Saturday, 13 Feb 2016 | Views [294]

Saturday morning and afternoon were calm and uneventful, at least for me. We'd received word (via email, so it is used for something) that Return of Kings was planning a large gathering in Umeda, so we should avoid it. If you don't have enough Facebook ... Read more >

Come for the pancakes, stay for everything else

JAPAN | Sunday, 7 Feb 2016 | Views [296]

Monday we had more kanji practice. I’ve stabilized into only doing the four sentences asked, but trying to work all of the kanji into those four sentences. Which means I need to use a lot of new kanji each sentence, which can be a challenge if ... Read more >

Pens vs. Clothes: which is really more necessary?

JAPAN | Saturday, 6 Feb 2016 | Views [203]

Saturday, I caught a train to Umeda for lunch and some probably-needed clothes shopping. Even though I could have sworn I'd exited the train part the same way I had last week, I emerged somewhere completely different. Which kind of ruined my plan of ... Read more >

Let's Take a Train to Anywhere

JAPAN | Saturday, 23 Jan 2016 | Views [405]

Wednesday the first few hours were dedicated to train vocabulary. How to buy train tickets, how to buy shinkansen tickets, commuter passes, etc. After a little over an hour in the classroom, we headed out to one of the nearby train stations to get tickets ... Read more >

The Start of a Semester

JAPAN | Friday, 22 Jan 2016 | Views [178]

Monday marked the start of my first full week of Japanese class. We were with Suzuki-sensei the entire time (as we would be for most of the week). For this week, we’re in the “survival Japanese” phase, which mostly involves learning ... Read more >

Diving Back into Japanese (wait... wasn't there something in French I needed to do?)

JAPAN | Sunday, 17 Jan 2016 | Views [204]

Our Japanese lessons began at 9:00 AM Friday morning. Our teacher, Yamaguchi-sensei, besides having one of the easiest to write Japanese names ever, (Yama- mountain and Guchi-mouth are both in the first 20 kanji you probably learn, more or less concurrent ... Read more >

Train, bus, caves, and geese

FRANCE | Tuesday, 29 Sep 2015 | Views [413]

Friday we had to show up at the train station at 7:30 with clothes for the weekend and food for lunch packed. In addition to everyone in the Paris program, we were joined by the four Brown students studying in Lyon. We got on the train a little before ... Read more >

Cooking and Harp

FRANCE | Tuesday, 22 Sep 2015 | Views [365]

Saturday was a cooking class. Joe, Megan , Maria José, and Aimé were also signed up for that session. (This was the second of three sessions, each with a cap of six people.) The cooking took place at a private house about an hour from ... Read more >

And so another week of classes begins

FRANCE | Friday, 18 Sep 2015 | Views [304]

Analysis has grown on me every time I’ve taken it. The first time I took it, I liked it, but it was basically just a math class. A math class that involved more rigor and writing than I was used to, but nothing super special. The next analysis ... Read more >

Mondays, Mondays

FRANCE | Thursday, 17 Sep 2015 | Views [262]

Since I’d designed my schedule to not have classes on Monday, I didn’t have anything I needed to do when I woke up in my own apartment the next morning. So I decided to finally get around to something I’d been meaning to do for a while:... Read more >

Oh, the people you'll meet

FRANCE | Tuesday, 25 Aug 2015 | Views [274]

When I got to the hotel, the concierge told me that, although my room wasn't ready, other people's room in the programme had clean rooms. Good for them? And I could either leave my suitcase there, or have the concierge call their room while I waited ... Read more >

It's All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Attacked by a Dog

USA | Monday, 22 Jun 2015 | Views [234]

So I realized that my write-ups tend to end shortly after class. Which isn't really intentional, I just run out of energy after finishing describing all of the time I spent in math classes. (I run out of energy after all the time I spend in math classes ... Read more >

Edinburgh Fringe, Part 2: The Vengeance

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 25 Sep 2014 | Views [256]

On Friday morning we got up and went down the breakfast. Essentially, it was a blend between the typical Hilton breakfast and the breakfasts we'd been having all over Scotland. There was fresh fruit and muffins, but also potato scones, haggis, and ... Read more >

Thurso

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 30 Aug 2014 | Views [386]

Depending on the source, Thurso is the northernmost town on the Scottish mainland. Sepcifically, if your source is Wikipedia or the signs around town, you will believe that. If your source is a map, it doesn't seem as likely. In any case, Thurso is ... Read more >

Inverness

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 27 Aug 2014 | Views [424]

The train to Inverness was crowded. Extremely crowded. My sister and I spent most of the ride standing. There might have been other seats farther down in the train, but when we looked through the window to the next car, there were people standing ... Read more >
