"...since you looked at me. Cocked your head to the side and said I'm angry."
Or more accurately, it's been one week since I landed at Narita Airport, sailed through customs, and made my way to my uncle's house in Kunitachi. In this last week I've spent a lot of time running around government offices, banks, and various stores. All in an effort to receive the privileges afforded to me as a Japanese citizen, get some money to finance this adventure until I find myself a proper job, and to get random things I needed (most notably a cell phone, and things to store my clothes). I also joined the Hitotsubashi Debating Society
for dinner and a couple of practices. This is the first time in my 11 year debating career that I've debated outside of Canada. (You can take the Canada out of the Canadian debater, but not the debating.) A good group of "kids" that I think I can help compete for a shot at the EFL break at Koç. (If anyone from the HDS is reading this... 一緒に頑張ろう！) Should be good times. I've also already managed to hit up 5 ramen shops in my 7 days. I think I'll be slowing down the pace if only for the health of my wallet. I've also already had dinner with some interesting people who were able to give me guidance on my job search. We'll see what this next week will bring, hopefully not more heat. Sweating while doing nothing is not very pleasant. Until next time!
