First day here–it felt about 3 days long. Going to breakfast this morning seems like it happened last week. A rush of things to do, papers to find and turn in, PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, and events going on all around.
I got lucky this morning and ran into the girls from WSU at breakfast. Since they’ve been here for two days they were able to tell me everything I missed and helped me get about six forms taken care. I met a few people in the process. Then I wandered around for a bit, trying to locate buildings. (Mostly sucessful.) There were lots of presentations to go to today, and a social dinner/people-bingo/dance off instead of supper. I met even more people, and will hopefully remember some names.
Tomorrow morning there is a Japanese placement test at 9:00. I’m trying to study, but I’m feeling super tired and jet-lagged, so it’s slow going. I guess the most I can do is give it my best shot. がんばる！
Japanese word of the day: gambaru / がんばる (gahm-ba-ru) to do one’s best; to give one’s all
