I'm going to Japan~  
So. As we entered the month now, I thought I'd talk about it a little. I am going to Japan on the 29th of March, and I am staying for at least a year.

I applied for a school there that helps to find employment. The only requirement is that you have N2, and a hella lot of money x"D Fortunately, I had both, so I went for it last year around may. It took until the 23th of February to get the okay back for sure. I got the Certificate of Eligibility that day, which means Japan lets me stay there for one year and three months for now. If I end up finding a job, then I wouldn't mind staying for a few more years.

I still don't know all the details about how the school operates, but it seems I'll have classes in the morning only, and I can work 28 hours a week, which I so want to try, tbh. Hopefully the school won't kill my motivation once I see how much studying I need. The goal is reaching N1 level by december(I really hope not July x"D) and to boost our oral skills, as that's usually lacking if you mostly just prepared for JLPT. Mine definitely does, but I feel so dumbly confident. Lately my English oral finally clicked and now I can watch most things without sub - I mean I watched Obama's speeches live x"D - and I became able to smoothly talk, too. As with Japanese the listening part was already on 95% level - did I mention I got 100% on the N2 listening? //smug - so I just need to wait for the moment when talking clicks in. It's so much easier to be confident about your language skills when it's not the first experience anymore. So I hope the moment I'll be forced to talk Japanese - and the teachers in the school, as rumoured, hardly speak any English - it's gonna be all fine. I have a pretty huge dormant vocabulary it just needs to be stimulated.

Geez, I can't wait. I'm not even just excited about BEING IN JAPAN, but all the things I can learn? I really, really love learning Japanese, so this should be a great time. I'm a little worried about being the oldest in the group, but oh well, I tend to be the mommy in every social interaction so there is not helping that x"D

About being in Japan... I'll be Tokyo!!! Specifically, in Nishikasai, Edogawa-ku, which is like so nicely in the middle between Chiba and the centre. I am a true Arashi fan, ok xD I'll stay in dormitory, and it's an all girl one which I am utterly grateful for x"D Though, it won't help my repulsion of men much, but who cares.

Dah, I have so many plans, so I'm constantly begging for a convenient schedule. I don't even know if we have summer vacation of some sort, but really hope so. The moment I have like three days off I'm booking a ticket to Naganoken and going to see my beautiful mountains!!

Now I'm in the middle of panicking about getting all my legal things on hold here. I'm such a child, it's super hard to figure these bureaucracy processes out, but fortunately, so far everything turned out fine. Just let it stay like that so I can spend my last days here worrying about going over shit that tries to bound me here -_-

So, short but huge news: I AM GOING TO LIVE IN JAPAN~~~~~~~

Write it as a dream, read it as a goal~

(Lol look at how fitting the music that came on is)

Congratulations!! I wish you all the best in Japan! I hope you get to do some amazing things, and maybe even catch Arashi in concert? ;) You probably wouldn't have time for that. I expect detailed updates once you land there now (jk. no pressure). I've been trying to make it to Japan for years and life keeps getting in the way. I have goals for this year but I don't know if finding a way to Japan in one of them. Oh well. Ganbatte! :D

I would be absolutely devastated if I couldn't attend an Arashi concert even though I'm there. So if they will have a tour, I'm gonna free up the time for it!!
And yeah, I plan to come back here ^^ I need to document my memories for my own sake too, I waited very long for this to come true ^^

Hope you'll have the chance too!!

I hope you get to see Sho either way. ;)

Gratulálok! Habár nem igazán tartjuk itt a kapcsolatot, sőt..lol :D Sok szerencsét és kitartást kívánok a MennyOrszágába! És ahogy írod és írták előttem, hopefully you'll be able to attend an Arashi concert or at least see them.
Ganbatte és ha időd engedi, kérlek, képekkel és írásokkal láss el bennünket, akik csak álmodnak ilyen kiváltságokról :)
Sok sikert még egyszer!!

Nem voltam túlságosan jelen erre felé az utóbbi pár.. évben x"D De majd most! Igyekszem majd folyamatosan posztolni, már csak magam miatt is, hogy megmaradjanak az emlékek ^^
Én is nagyon remélem, hogy az az Arashi koncert összejön, ha fognak turnézni, ott leszek bármi áron :D
Köszi <3

It is very enviable, I can't tell how lucky I am, thanks for congratulating anyway <3

I will! That's why I wrote this here, I plan to make posts about my adventures again here, as it's kind of impossible on twitter x"D

Wow!!! This is amazing! Congratulations!!! <3
Please take care and be healthy, ok? I'm sure you'll manage to study everything and have time for yourself. Take it easy and enjoy yourself! ^_^

I really hope one day I'll be able to go to Japan too~~

I had a blood test to see how is my health, and I'm fine, so with Japan's amazing foods health shouldn't be an issue :D I'll do my best ^^

I'm rooting for everyone!! If I could do it, anyone can.

That's an awesome news, I'm very happy for you.
I hope you get the chance to see Arashi live and tell me all the details, you can be my paparazzi *flails* x´D
On the other hand I know I'll be hard to stay away from your family, you seem very close to your little bro and friends.
Also it's a cultural shock, so maybe it could be hard at times to meet people that thinks totally different.
Honestly I hope you stay, so you can be my guide if I go to see Arashi or Tomo (jijiji) I know I'll never live in Japan, it's not my plan of life, but I do want to go and spend some vacations there, so you have to be there for me.
I'll be supporting you, get everything done and don't forget nothing, ganba desu!! <3

Thank you ^^
I think my post after my Arashi concert is gonna be the longest I've ever written and we know I had pretty long posts xDDD

Yeah, it already feels pretty painful and I still can't even grasp how hard it's gonna be. Atis only cried once yet about he doesn't want me to go anywhere, but damn, it's gonna be horrible on the last day.

Ugh, especially with how progressive I think about life lately?? I'm so into these social issues that living in Japan will probably feel like going back to the 50s...... ehm, who cares, I can endure anything as long as I gotta see Shosan XDD
Omg, come and let's go do things!! We probably never could meet anywhere else, damn, so come!!!!!

Thank you <33 I really hope I won't annoy anyone with how much I'll be failing over being there, it's really reassuring to see your kind words <333

//hugs back
