Today started really early. Just as well though, since I somehow found myself awake at around 6:30. I have no idea what is wrong with me. Well, I had breakfast in the cafeteria (because you need to know EVERYTHING that I do) with a few friends, and met someone named Rosanna. I could look up in the guide book they gave us where she’s from, but I’m lazy and tired soooo nope.
Well, I showed some friends where the hyaku en store was (these were some new people I got to know, so they didn’t go with the large group the day before). Turns out it doesn’t open until around 10 am, so we wandered around the city a bit. We ended up finding a supermarket (yay!!) and a coffee place called “Seattle’s Best.” It was amusing because two of my friends that were there happened to be from Seattle; they explained that no one actually went to Seattle’s Best back home because it really didn’t have that good of coffee. After the hyaku en store adventure was over, we ended up at You Me town, bought a few books, and leached off of the wifi at Starbucks. I managed to contact my mom – poor Mom, she was so worried. I don’t blame her though. Her daughter’s in a whole new country, and I wasn’t even able to tell her I was fine, or that I was making friends, or even if I was happy here. I’m glad I was finally able to do that today.
Shortly afterwards, we headed back to the dorm. I ran into a few other friends who went shopping to buy bikes – and demanded that they teach me how so I could travel cheaper. They also invited me to dinner; in turn, I invited the few friends I went out with earlier to dinner with us (I didn’t just do this rudely; I was told that I should invite them. Plus, they could help me out with the whole riding the subway thing and getting off at the right stops so I could actually make it to Hakata Station in one piece and on time).
I was supposed to do a walkthrough of my room or something, but I’m just not feeling it right now. Maybe later. Man, I miss the internet.
