On Myself Posted on October 5th, 2010 by

I noticed that most of my posts have been about events. Today I thought for a long time of what to write and I thought hey, I should probably talk a bit about how I’m doing!

I’m doing pretty well, actually. I’m not quite terribly homesick and my health has been doing pretty well. You can definitely tell it’s the beginning of flu season here–there are people walking about with flu masks (a surprising and actually scary sight for someone who isn’t used to it) and a few students have been absent from class so far. I’m doing my best to stay healthy, by drinking hot tea (which is definitely not hard to find around here) and washing my hands and whatnot.

I guess the biggest problem I’ve been having so far is commuting. It’s not a problem in and of itself, but it’s just so long (a bit longer than an hour). I have to get up at 7 in the morning so naturally I’m tired, but then I have to walk fast to make the train and then manage to stay awake on the train so I don’t miss my transfer and my stop! It’s harder than it seems, especially when about 80% of people who ride the train drift off at some point. It’s tiring to commute so much and as the Japanese would say, mendokusai!!

Anyway I’m probably off to bed now. I think it’s about 8:30 AM in Minnesota… Hahah, that’s a funny time to say that. Good night!
