We (the Japanese group) went to London on Wednesday to have our final day out together as a GCSE group. We will see each other again, and there will be other days out and reunions, but we’ll never do so in quite the same way again, sadly. But regardless, we made the best of it, […]
Wooo! I met up with my friends from Japanese at CGSB (my school) a couple of hours ago today to collect our GCSE Japanese results and open them together. Everyone there got A*s!! I’m glad these two years have come out just as fruitful academically as they have been building friendships *^_^*.
I took my sister to the cinema tonight to see ‘The Village’ (recommended). We had McDonalds and I tried one of their new ‘Salads Plus’ items, which was actually pretty good.

Ayako, you may or may not remember, is my pen pal that I met in London once during the first year of Japanese, as Sumiko is a friend of Kushida-sensei’s and they […]
Wednesday July 14th Tsurumine High School – Day 3 This was our final day at Tsurumine High School. Okaasan made me obento again (which was very good) and we headed off for school. I didn’t talk to as many of the students individually today as I had done the day before. After the day’s English […]
