The life of a Michigan State University College Girl, turned Chicago Native. Continue the journey with me!

Japan! I made it!!

Even though this is my only my second study abroad. I feel themes of them must be. “What started off as the worse experience of my life, turned into the greatest”. This one although was totally different.

After driving to Lansing to find out my flight had been delayed, I drove back to Detroit to hopefully catch the flight… Nope didn’t happen. I was although able to get on the flight w/ my prof and a few of the other students. A direct flight, I couldn’t ask for more.

Of course, we had to catch the subway and a train and through the course of it. I lost my camera!!!!!! Yea, so there goes day one. No need crying over split milk though, there is nothing I can do about it. Now, how to take pics? And moreso, I lost Britts bday pics, graduation pics, and a picture of me and him.. Lol!

We all went to dinner and ate a bunch of different Japanese dishes. Next time, I will do better to know the names. There was tashumi (half cooked salmon), a coleslaw like mixture with Chicken, a great spicy rice, chicken on a stick, fried octopus and a few other things. We all ate it w/ chopsticks. Yaay!!

Granted I had a few mishaps, nothing major. I am figuring my roommates had more. Why? Because they aren’t here yet. Now it’s day 2 and they haven’t arrived. It is although 6 in the morning. And, I’m definitely not a morning person, but I woke up by 6. We don’t have to be up until 830.

Still waiting for more adventures, maybe to find my camera (wishful thinking). To meet up w/ my cuz. Try some more food and to see Japan in the daylight.

Continue my journey w/ me…
