HI!
That's alright, i'll take part of the blame for being so inactive!

I (finally) graduated high school back in june, and since then i've been working non-stop. I figured i could try to apply at a japanese university, so I just gambled on that and started to save up money. At the moment i work at a convenience store in the weekends, and as a substitute teacher at a nearby elementary school during the weeks. Teaching is actually surprisingly fun! :D

And last week, I finally got a letter from my uni. And guess what! I got accepted o.o
The name of the university is "Ritsumeikan Asia pacific university" and it's located in kyushu. I will be studying something along the lines of "international relations and world peace studies", so i'm sure that will be an interesting way to spend the next 4 years of my life :)

We do have something similar to a mandatory military service, but you will be excluded if you have a valid reason. I have Asthma, so I did not have to go( luckily :p) And the serving period is only about 10 months on average, unless you want to take higher education when there( which is a possibility)

I think I enjoyed the first house the most, seeing as it was just really neat in a very nice neighboorhood. All of my houses were in southern Osaka, within 15 minutes by train to the school i attended.
*My japanese host brother, sorry if that was a bit unclear! My first host family came here to visit in August, and it was really nice to see them again, and to give them a taste of Norway :D

Back here I feel that the teachers just try to get their job done, they don't usually care too much about the personal lives of each individual student like i got the impression from my teachers in japan. This might of course be that I was just lucky and had some amazing teachers there, or I mightve just been very unlucky with the ones ive had back here. The size of the school and the classes, are probably also a factor as to how much the teacher will engage and try to learn to know their students. Perfect example: I went to a small elementary school and the teachers were really nice and cared about everyone. Once i got into junior high, the classes were much bigger (from 3 students to 30) and the teachers probably didnt have the time nor capacity to get to know everyone that well.

When i first arrived, me and a guy from china were the only foreginers there. He only was there for about half a year, so in late summer he left, and in came 3 others to take his place. 2 girls from the US, and 1 girl from Norway((!!)coincidentally, she knew the lady i had taken private japanese lessons with before i left for jpn). None of them were in my class however, but we did do certain activities together.

Seeing as its getting close to 3 years since i returned, it sure as hell has gotten rustier. My handwriting in particular has become unreadable, seeing as that is what i get to use the least. And now that I got accepted, I will have to step up my studying game! I will take a 4 year bachelor, where the first year is in english. during that year, there will also be intense japanese lessons, preparing us for the next 3 years, which will all be in japanese. So I'd better work hard if I want to graduate :d

the sakura hamburger was probably one of the weirdest and most confusing things ive eaten. It kind of tasted like a sweet flower with sauce, but it was pretty tasty at the same time. Its too hard to explain it honestly, you'll just have to try one when you go there! :D

I lived in a pretty rural area(Osaka) but i lived in the far south, so i dont really think there were many foreginers there. except from the people at my school, I think I only met 3 other foreginers there, 1 from paraguay, and 2 from thailand.
But seeing as Osaka is a big place, there were a lot of foreginers once you got to the more central and northern areas. My organization (YFU) also had an event where us exchange students staying in Osaka, together with students from Osaka international school, held an english camp for a high school class. That was actually a very cool thing, and I met a lot of awesome people ^_^

Although i knew a lot of foreginers, we still lived quite far from each other so we couldnt really hang out all that much. The people i spent the most time with, was probably a guy in wakayama prefecture, and a norwegian guy living in shiba prefecture (foreginers). I mostly spent time with my japanese classmates, but it was very nice to hang out with fellow foreginers and exchange experiences every so often :))

Comiket was really amazing. I went with 3 other people: 2 guys living in Aichi, and then 1 guy living in tokyo( we stayed at his host family's house). The whole thing was a blast, but we also did so much more than just go to comiket. We went to a bunch of karaoke places, went to the big sightseeing spots like asakusa, and toured shibuya and akihabara at night.

Comiket, was filled with nothing but goodies. amazing cosplays all over the place, and then a ton of doujins, games, anime merch and manga. It was very exhausting tho, seeing as there were so many people there at once, and we lost sight of eachother probably every 5 minutes.

Now as i will go back, unless something very major happens, it's all up to you! ;) Looking forward to meeting you there! Remember, Kyushu is where its at! :D

I think this turned out kinda long, but I felt like I had to do a better job explaining things more in detail. I hope its not too bothersome!

Best wishes,

-Norv

Oh god, 10 months... I didn't even realize, haha. Yup, but nice! I've never been to the UK :( How was it? And yes, only for half a year now I'm in med school, in Stockholm!

And have fun at the army, or rather, have personal growth :)

^^ You'll never escape my songs, glad you liked it! Here's 3 more from different artists... my most played songs the last month, probably! Though you gotta send me stuff too!

Have a nice year, see you whenever you feel like it (or your army service ends, no idea if you can use computer during that year) ;)

Agreed. My Hero Academia season 2 finishes in just 12 days. XD
AcidRainForever Sep 17, 3:21 PM
Because it's that time again that I've returned to MAL for a short time. xD

I like sour cream and onion chips. And also barbecue chips. o3o

Ah, OK, that was what I was wondering before, whether or not the job was required for every guy. Aw, well, best of luck to you! Hope everything goes well. Even if you don't want to do it and can't refuse, I still feel like it's very respectable of you to serve! >.<
AcidRainForever Sep 17, 10:42 AM
No need to apologize! I haven't been on here for a long time... And when I do come back, I'm not here for long. xD
Yeah, I like Asian cuisine the most... But I prefer my parents' homemade food over Asian restaurant food. xP They're really good at cooking their own dishes. :D So I like sweet, sour, and salty foods, but most of what I like are separate from each other. x) I do like Asian sweet and sour soup, though. :P

Yeah, before I bought them, I really wanted the ice cream, but the mushroom actually came to look cuter than in the picture. xD And it's really soft and has a good shape for sleeping and hugging it at the same time. xD Thanks! My sister managed to buy a graphics card, but it turns out that the game we play is heavily CPU-based rather than graphics card-based, so the FPS didn't really improve, and maybe she just needs a new CPU instead... xD But we managed to get her a larger monitor, too--the same model as mine--from our parents because they had bought two of those models when they were on discount, and they only use their monitor to watch movies in their own room, so our father just handed it to her when I politely asked for it.

Oh, you're in the army? :o Well, it's nice to know you serve your own country! Very respectful work. ^^

Those 2 will be a blast.

I've seen the PVs. Looks intriguing and well-animated.
animesthabomb Sep 11, 12:46 PM
No way in hell am I going to the military. I prefer not to be shot at or grilled by a drill sergeant; going to college and making my own choices is MUCH better. XD

Steins;Gate 0 and season 2 of My Hero Academia.
animesthabomb Sep 9, 1:41 PM
Yup, pretty busy.

Mandatory? That sucks. Here in the states, we have so many that want to go that it's not mandatory.

What series are you looking forward to?
animesthabomb Sep 8, 8:36 AM
It's been a while buddy. Great to see ya.

Been good. In college, working, and watching anime when I can.
animesthabomb May 20, 10:32 AM
How are you? ;)
Norv Apr 7, 5:02 AM

Take your time, and take care!

Oh, what kinds of foods do you like to eat? As in, spicy, sweet, sour, etc.? And do you have a favorite food, or are there a lot that you like? XD
Yeah, they do cost a lot, so that's why I have to save up. But we recently bought some really cute large plushes. XD Because one of them was sold out before, and I got an e-mail saying that they were back in stock; when I checked it, already half of the supply was sold, so I quickly bought one and bought a second one (a different plush) for free shipping. XD Here are example pictures:


The ice cream one was the one that was out of stock.

Yeah, we have to spend around $500 or more per semester for books and other software we may need for the classes. :c

Well, there are lots of different kinds of foods. So it's not surprising to still not have tried some foods. ^^ Yeah, I always share my money with my sister. XD We're just like that. :3 Well, we actually want new graphics cards for our computer. And my sister also wants a new, widescreen computer monitor (she's still using one of the square kinds). XD
Thanks, Happy New Year! I hope you can, too. :) Well, Chinese New Year was on the 28th. Since I can't celebrate it with my family 'cause I'm back in uni, my parents had us bring their homemade Chinese New Year foods so that we can eat them on that day. It was sticky rice cake (for good luck) and some dumpling. c:

I wish it was more convenient here. I am forced to spend way too much money on random textbooks when I take the general education classes. :( Plus, I have to spend money on the really expensive textbooks for my major, and my English friend said that she doesn't have to spend money on textbooks because they're all available in the library. But we have to buy our own here. -.-

Hi, George :) I welcome you warmly in the New Year of 2017 :)

First of all, thank you for your Christmas wishes :) I hope your Christmas were successful and you've spent them in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. You were in Norwich on Christmas or you were in Greece?

On the occasion of the new year, I wish you health, fulfillment of all your dreams, success in England and many, many reasons to smile. I wish that 2017 will be even more nice for you than 2016 :)

How you spent New Year's Eve?

That's good :) I would also like to live a little more. I still have some things to do :)

Thank you, George. He feels good, although the number of drugs that he take does not affect him well. He will probably, give up on one of them. In any case, it is good. He's a tough guy :)

I understand. I also hope so. It should not be problems with that?

I highly recommend you "Kimi No Na Wa.". Beautiful movie :)

"Monogatari Series: Second Season" made a really good impression on me. I liked it almost as much as "Bakemonogatari". I will prepare soon a summary of the year 2016 in the anime and both titles will be there :)

I am watching "Bleach" from the beginning of September (after reading the first volume of the manga), but it did not make such a big impression on me, to watching it often. Currently I am watching "Durarara !!". You are surprised that I watch "Bleach" :)?

I understand. From what you say, you have a lot of work. Did you have some free time to explore Norwich? You've met some interesting and nice people?

My last month, was very similar to the previous one. Studies, preparation of materials for the channel, helping Grandparents and music. This is how it looks my life basically :)

OK :) The situation took place six years ago, at the beginning of 2011. I was actually at the beginning of the musical road, let's call it like that, and I was singing songs of Pearl Jam (not very well to be honest:). Then my Mother returned home and gave me a card which was attached to the front door: "Do something good for the music and stop singing!". It pissed me off and I found that I also glue the message to my neighbor's door :) When I was putting a card to the door, something like, that I'm not going to stop playing the guitar and practising singing and that she can always move out, she just opened the door :) I remember when I was downstairs, I had to meet with my collegue, she said, that she won't move out. I said, that I'm not going to stop playing. From that moment we did not like each other. I kept her card to this day as a souvenir :)

I think so, although I have some doubts if studying two more years, will improve so much my chances. I hope so. For now, I haven't found interesting job offers.

Thank you. I'm glad, that you take a look :)

I also think so. For now, I did not speak to him, but maybe in January I'll call to him.

As for the girl who plays the violin. Unfortunately. I am heavily disappointed. She gave me her number, said that she like to help me and then stopped answering my calls. Once again, people disappointed me.

Together with my colleague, we have prepared the violin parts from the samples. I think it came out pretty good. Now I should only record the vocals. In January, the song should be ready. Finally.

In the last month, there was basically no snow. It fell quite a bit on Christmas Eve, really suddenly and it was everything.

Yes. During the first round of the Champions League, by the way this is the first time that the Polish club play in the Champions League after twenty years, hooligans of Legia Warsaw wanted to attack the fans of Borussia Dortmund. By that embarrassing behavior, the real fans could not come to the match Legia Warsaw - Real Madrid because the standium was closed for fans.

I had no opportunity to be in Auschwitz-Birkenau. I heard the opinions of people that everyone, at least once, should visit this place and that can change our perception of the world. I think it's quite possible. What do you think?

It is good that you enjoyed it :) Even three or even four films? That's quite a lot. I hope that you will enjoy them as the first part.

Have you seen "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" already?

I see that you gave "Natsume..." a #10. You must loved it. I have not had a chance to watch it yet.

You're welcome. I do it with great pleasure :) Here is a list: http://rateyourmusic.com/films/chart Let me know what you think and what movies you have seen.

As a bonus, I send you a list of the best albums from the same site. You might like it :) http://rateyourmusic.com/charts/top/album/all-time

No problem :) I thought it might be him :)

I understand. I suspect that the food in England is more fat and less healthy and diverse, as in Greece, or am I wrong?

Thank you. For me, Christmas was really nice, which I was not expecting. I hope they were nice for you too.

Take care, George. Good luck and have a nice week :)
