I apologize for abandoning this thing, but I haven't had much to write about lately.

How are things, Atemu? Seems like I haven't seen you in ages. You mentioned something about a visit to the beach - which sounds entertaining enough.

... I live a really boring life. I have gotten better with my Japanese, and I think I'm passing all my classes. It's still a bit to adjust to, considering I would accept nothing under an honors score back at home.

The host family and I have developed some sort of system - eating at different times, or ignoring each other whenever possible. It's working quite well.

What's this about a school play?

... I think the cruise is almost over? I could be wrong.

Well. I can't deny some part of me wants to stay as long as I can. I haven't had this much fun in my life. But I already knew my life was boring. So.

I'd think burning ants with magnifying glass would even be amusing for me. Just about anything, really.

Still, I'm enjoying this trip more than I would burning ants. That's Atemu's fault. I've never been as close to a person as I am with him. ... Not gonna lie; that's a great feeling. It's almost a weakness. But I'm not saying that's a bad thing.

He even got me to dress up and get our picture taken at one of those photo set... things, around the cruise. Didn't come out half bad. In fact, I rather like it. ...had a small urge to use it on my LJ. So I did. ... No, I don't flaunt things. But. :|

I bought some nice suits for the formal dinners. I think my Egyptian formal wear was getting too much... attention or something. It was kind of annoying. And distracting. It's hard to eat when people are trying to pretend they aren't staring at you.

That's about it. Hope all this fun lasts.

Excuse me while I point out the obvious, but it seems I've been tagged. :|

Oh goody.Collapse )

I don't have much people to tag, considering everyone I do know have already done this meme.

I better finish packing.

I was late to class the other day. :| I'm never late, but I also don't have a habit of insulting people at the dinner table either.

Interestingly enough, the reason why I was tardy wasn't a complete disaster.


..... Okay. I lied. I actually have a decent sized bruise on my head to prove it.

Aside from that, I seemed to have met someone new. He's not that bad, If he's not accusing me of being some ass that I'm not. I don't know if many people are familiar with him, but his name's Jounouchi, and he's kind of hard to ignore--for lack of better words.


There are some flyers going around school about this 'Cruise Field Trip'. Teachers have mentioned it as well, and I can't help but show the slightest amount of interest. I have no idea how a trip like this can be paid for, but I guess Japanese schools are just... uncanningly wealthy? Or maybe I'm missing something here.

...Yeah. Oh well. I think I'm going to go.

...Huh. I think I'm in trouble with the family I'm staying with. At least I assume I must be. I knew yesterday I had more stuff in my room than just a futon and a few pencils. :|

Come to think of it, dinner the other night was very awkward after I complimented the family's cooking.

I wouldn't be surprised if they kicked me out the next time I complimented their style in dress.

Yeah. Japanese shouldn't have been a language. :|

I guess I should use this thing. My parents wanted me to keep them informed on my progress here, but unfortunately for them, I have no intention of writing in Arabic. Does livejournal even HAVE that option?

My first day of school was... interesting. I'll give it that.

I met someone else from Egypt. He's a Khafra, so he isn't just a someone. But his name is Atemu, and he's a lot different than I expected. He says he's going to show me around town, which I'm looking forward to. I won't have to die of complete boredom.

Japan is still going to take a bit of getting used to. :|
