So, long time no see! How are you all?
I’m sorry it has taken me so long to blog about anything. I’ve only got internet in the last few weeks, and I guess I just haven’t had the energy! But I’m slowly getting used to my new life in Nagasaki and feel its time to get back on the blogging wagon!
So, Nagasaki City. It’s so wonderful! Like truly, there is so much here to see, I feel so lucky living here. There was also no exaggeration made I was told that it was a culturally rich prefecture! From Japanese, to Chinese, to Dutch, Nagasaki has so may interesting things to learn and experience! (That and there is an amazing cafe that sells a mean pumpkin soup).
My house is in a pretty sweet location, and my apartment- despite the gross carpet which I’ve managed to burn with my iron- is really lovely! Although, I do have a mini fridge….just a mini fridge, with half a shelf for my freezer….They must know I can’t cook! I truly do like it though, and despite being pretty central, my street is relatively quiet and whenever I am disturbed, its by wonderful sounds such as monks from the monastery nearby.
My schools are also pretty wonderful! The bus Journey to Junior high B, as I will now call it, forcing me to get up at a ridiculous time while being worth it, is pretty wonderful. Its a little far from my house, but I honestly enjoy the bus ride there, especially when I get a window seat. I alternate between a sea view and a mountainous view, and I always feel spoiled for choice in the mornings. Like watching a film, I get to drive along side the Ocean, half expecting Ponyo to pop out and start riding them waves! (This has not happened yet, but I will be patient).
Hearing the tales from everyone else’s adventures in Japan makes me both Jealous and excited! Some prefectures really got their shit together and seem to have done a lot for the ALT’s, especially in regards to making sure thy experience japan.
When I’m not so tired, I will put up a post about arriving in Japan, and the few crazy days that followed.
Well, I’m off to watch Buzzer Beat and curl up with tea and cake! Have a nice evening, expect to hear from me soooooon!
