Everything is crystallizing.

Simply, going to Japan is finally becoming a reality on something other than paper. Over the past few days, a couple of factors have driven this home:

1) My mother won’t stop bothering me about logistics.

2) I finally got my actual acceptance packet from Ritsumeikan Kyoto.

and, most recently, 3) I’m going to be doing language exchange sessions with a Japanese student at OU whom I am contacting as I write this. Read More »

Acceptance

Acceptance

As you can see, I’ve been accepted into Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be leaving, but rest assured I’ll stay in Norman for as long as possible (read: March) before leaving for home, then Japan. That said, I won’t have classes next semester in the mean time, and hopefully I’ll be getting a job (anyone have any suggestions?).

While I’m there I’ll be maintaining this blog, but my professional writing major friend has convinced me that writing a study abroad blog will be a good thing. I can’t help but agree. So when I post here, I’ll probably post there. Hopefully, since I’m bringing my camera with me, I’ll have more pictures than I know what to do with. Talk about which, are there any anime pilgrimages you think I should make while I’m there other than the Comic-cons and Akihabara?

Anyway, I’m off to study for finals and play some Persona 4 before my last final at 8am tomorrow (eugh! why 8? why Friday? I need to get back to Corpus!).
