We take our orientation in the course and get placement. I’m in beginners, obviously and began to become accustomed with the program we use to learn Hiragana. It all seems that it will be a hearty challenge but it will definitely be rewarding.

We also decided to go to a local ice cream parlor… Cold Stone:

I also made shrimp for dinner and surprisingly, it was actually really good.
Stay tuned very very soon for a posting of a very eventful day 3.
