Welcome to my Blog! I will be keeping a record of my new life in Tokyo, Japan while at Temple University, Japan Campus. In addition to friends and family, I'm hoping this website will be a resource to prospective TUJ students, as so many blogs assisted me in the last two years. In the side bar, there are links to my photo albums, videos, and previous blog, which chronicles my first trip to Tokyo. Please enjoy!

I started this blog a long while ago, in the hopes that I could follow the same formula used by the many blogs I read before moving. I was lazy and unmotivated, and this blog fell into decay. I am no longer in Japan, and can't do current happenings. I do however, have several hundred gigabytes of photos to share form my year in the j-land. If I have time, I will start to do series covering my experiences as best I can. wish me luck!

Hello to anybody that reads this blog. I know I haven't written in a long time and I can't guarantee I'll be writing much. right now I'm home in Philly after completing my 1st semester at TUJ. I'll be returning January 8th to Tokyo. My 1st semester was rocky to say the least, and I don't know what will happen during the second. I'm thinking of trying to write blog entries about certain areas when i get back as my primary theme for the blog. My favorite spots are situated around the bay and Sumida river, including Toyosu, Odaiba, Shiodome (where I'm living), and everything in between. for now I'll try and write entries with whatever pictures I have on file. If your still reading, thanks for sticking with me!

In the morning I headed to school as usual, and prepared for the Japanese quiz with Ashley and Beverly on the train. After class we headed to Tokyo Tower, which was much quieter than last time I visited. While I was there, I saw my school from the tower, stood on look-down glass, and went up to the special observatory at the very top. During the elevator ride up, a voice announce that "there will be a cracking noise. It's perfectly normal, a safety device". The elevator promptly sounds like it's breaking down. After our adventure, Ashley and Beverly headed back to school, and I walked to the US Embassy. As it turns out, consular services now require an appointment AND they're closed on Wednesdays. After, I started heading home, but decided to check out Kawasaki instead. There I found a nice mall (complete with California Pizza Kitchen, an American buffet, and an old fashioned burger shop) where I walked around for a bit. I then had dinner at Saizeriya, a big chain of family restaurants best described as the Denny's of Italian food. It was pretty good and very cheap. Finally, I headed back to school, where I attended the 1st meeting of the anime club. it was smaller than expected, but a good way to spend time.

What's Up Lately

I know there are people back home waiting for me to make further updates: to those people I apologize. Since my current plan (large entry every week) obviously isn't working for me, I'm going to try and update every day with smaller posts and less pictures per each. Eventually I might recall some of the interesting experiences I've yet to document, but for now I'm going to concentrate on my everyday life (which is now much more boring thanks to classes). Sorry again, but I'll be back soon with things to report.
