So today I went over to the study abroad office to talk to someone about, obviously, studying abroad. Looks like I get to go to Kansai Gaidai, a school near Kyoto, Osaka, and one other city (it's kinda in the middle of the three). I'll be leaving, I believe, late August and will return late December, unless something tragic happens. But in any case, I'm extremely happy about this while also very nervous. I've decided to live in the campus dorms while I'm there (which will be my first time living in dorms) since I'm usually not that sociable of a guy, and on top of that, I'm afraid of getting a host family that I won't get along with. So that's part of what's making me nervous. And of course, while I can listen and comprehend the language fairly well, reading Japanese still isn't my best point, nor is remembering vocab, so I'm a little worried about that, too. As long as I can say, "Anou, sumimasen. Koko no chikoku, aruke-do ga arimasuka? Sono aruke-do de wa ddr ga arimasuka?", or something to that degree, I think I'll live.
The good thing is that, from the looks of it, I only have to pay for personal expenses (food, shampoo, soap, DDR, hentai, the necessities of life essentially) and housing. My school's paying the rest for the cost of my normal tuition (27,000 or 28,000 a year).
So yeah...looks like I'll get to see Kyoto at last, in person.
