My plans for summer and beyond are starting to fall into place.

I've been house hunting for a while now, and I've finally found a decent place. It's a great place near campus, apparently there are 4 spots open with one room smaller than the others. Since I'm gunning for the small room, apparently my chances of getting are quite good. I really hope I get in, the other places I've been checking out have all been pretty bad.

In summer news, I'll be taking a summer course from May to mid-June. Than, during July/August I'll be in Japan doing another 2 workcamps. The details are as follows:

In spite of such wonderful natural heritage, depopulation of especially youth is serious here as well as much other countryside in Japan. They would like to active this town through workcamps!
