Eka viikko takana!

Nagoya Zokei main stairs in dramatic evening sunlight.

Haa, the first week is already behind?  A lot of stuff has happened, the school has started well and, uh, well, everything is WELL.

Imma write about what courses I attend in school! On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays me and Joey (Jojo) have Graphic Design. We're going to make a little (63 pages haHAHAh) photography book so I've been taking a lot of pictures for it. Last week we also had to search for good photography books and come up with a theme. I've been talking in front of the class twice in Japanese. It was just a few sentences but I was really nervous and forgot all the words and got everything wrong and agh, but fortunately the class is really nice so maybe I don't die.

Serii, Jojo, me and Cho! Jojo is a little bit in shadow ;_;
Cho is from China so she and Jojo use sometimes this mix of Mandarin and Cantonese to talk!

This girl is also in Graphic Design class. And that thing on her palm is a living butterfly omigad.

On Wednesdays I have Illustration class. It's really nice and the teacher seems to be talking about a lot of interesting stuff. Also he's very good at arts, he showed us some stuff he had done and I was amazed. For this class we need to make an illustration of autumn on B3. I've got a vague idea what I'm going to do. Today we went to buy the colours and papers and now I've no cash.

Aaand on Mondays we have Digital Media Design class. That's exactly what it says. We're doing designs on computer. CHARACTER DESIGNS HOLY BANANAS. Yesterday, on the first class, we just drew a superhero and his/her enemy and scanned them. BUT WE'RE GONNA MAKE THEM 3D WHICH SEEMS LIKE 2D, now how cool is that? Sensei is also really nice, he showed us the designs of latest anime characters and how it's going to be in future. The students are loud and happy, which is more than fine for me. When I got into the class, a little bit lost, a girl I barely knew jumped on me! That must be the most cheerful welcome I've ever received! <3

On weekend we went to see the Nagoya Castle. We tagged along with some helpful guides who told us a lot about the history of the castle and Japan. It was really hot and after climbing all the way up to the castle, Thuy didn't feel so well so we became familiar with the Japanese tourist aid! I also ate a green tea ice cream (interesting!). I've eaten a lot of white rice and my stomach has been a bit upset every evening. Recently I bought some eggs and weird yogurt and after eating them I felt better :'D Yay for eggs and yogurt! ANYHOW, after the castle we took a short visit to Sakae again.

Then just some pictures with an explanation below! I need to study more Japanese. Today it was finally a little bit easier to talk. I still can no more than chit chat, but that's a start.

The great Nagoya Castle omg omg!

The view from the top! Nagoya cityyy!

We being tourists.

I'd still have so much things to write about, but no can do. Until next time!

  1. TUO OTSIKKO. SE ON NIIN SÖPÖ että en kestä. Ja anteeksi että kirjoitan suomeksi, koska aivoni jumittavat.

    Tuo Digital Media Design, olen niin katkera. Kuulostaa kivalta! Ja oi mitkä tutut söpöt salamakorvikset siellä näkyykään 8D
