For those whom I've not had contact with yet: guess what, I survived Europe! :D No trains de-railing in Paris or falling off cliffs/getting eaten by sheep in Scotland. The trip was amazing and like my last major trip I'm going to try and do summaries by place - unfortunately I was an idiot and didn't have my camera out for the majority of the time, so there won't be pictures, really.

So let's go in order, part one: Paris )

So about that whole updating more often thing. Yeah, didn't happen. Who's surprised? :DDD So, we'll be going through the semester in bullet-point-summary-mode. I would like to point out that these are not necessarily chronological order, I apologize for the confusion.

Semester abroad cliff notes yaaaaaay )

But I'm home, and despite being rather cold (heating vents to my room are closed when I leave for the semester, and they've not been opened up yet) and pestered by cats am enjoying myself. I have four days to unpack, finish an internship application, do laundry, see HP7 and repack for two weeks in Europe which I leave for on the 18th. Which means I need to find out where Dad moved the sweaters in the top of my closet to when he was doing stuff in the attic, because I kind of want to bring those...

It's been a long five days @.@ )

Short version: The Japanese police are numerous and extremely bored so be careful about EVERYTHING, I have a phone named Shiro-chan who has some issues but is loved nonetheless, stay away from Roppongi unless you want to get drugged/robbed/die and I became thoroughly addicted to milk tea in under two days and am going to miss it immensely when I am again stateside.

And I haven't even started classes yet.

Pre-Japan update number whatever-the-hell, yaaaay :D

Phone stuff is sorted! *bounces about* I'll be stealing my dad's smartphone for the next 4 months, which is unlocked and has a keyboard, so all that's left to do is get myself a SIM card when I arrive in Japan. Which I should be able to do I think. I'll deal with replacing my actual phone once I'm back in the country, and parentals have figured out wtf is going on with our family plan. Woot solving stuff.

I am also packed ladies and...wait, do I actually have any guys friended?, what's more, I am packed with room to spare.

Well, ok, it's not exactly room to spare, but I have an empty pocket and I definitely did not pack my bags as tightly as I could have, plus on the flight home I will be wearing my peacoat, not packing it, so I'm calling it room to spare. :3 Ha.

So, all that's left is to pack the last few things (shirts that were just washed, ipod, phone, glasses, etc), and study like hell for that placement test I'll be taking...sometime after I arrive. Probably the first day of class. Which would be going a lot better if I could actually like, focus, and hadn't packed my textbooks. >> planning. Um. about that....

Now that I'm finally home for a period of longer than 36 hours and have finished unpacking, I can procrastinate on the long list of other-shit-that-needs-to-get-done by regaling you all with the fascinating tales of what I got up to while traversing the western Mediterranean with my family. :D I know you've all been so looking forward to it.

And so it begins...Getting there and Rome )
