Sunday

またモールに行きましたが、秋にはセールがあまりないので、何も買わなかったんです。家から服をあまり持ってこなくて、もっと洋服を買いたいと思っていますが、お金を節約ことをよく頑張っています。I went to the mall again but didn’t buy anything because there are no good sales in the fall right now. I’m thinking about buying some more clothes because I barely brought any but I am trying really hard to save money.

昼は教会に行ったはずでしたが、ちょっと気分が悪くなったので、行く代わりに昼寝しました。それから出張で日本に来たおばさんに東京駅で会って、一緒にキッテで夕食を食べました。キッテというのは、古い郵便局からお洒落なモールに変化されたビルです。In the afternoon I was supposed to go to church but I didn’t feel too well, so I took a nap. For dinner I met my aunt who came to Japan for a business trip at Tokyo Station. We ate at Kitte, a very pretty mall that was the old post office. 

Monday

朝日本語の口頭試験を受け、分かる問題が全然なくて、よくできたと思いますが、ちょっと緊張で普通のほど上手く話しませんでした。We took our speaking test in the morning. I thought I did okay and didn’t have any trouble understanding anything, but I don’t think I spoke as well as I can due to nerves. 

情報のセッションの後、E-palたちと区役所に必要な住所及び国民健康保険の登録をしに行き、人がたくさんいたので、何分も待ちました。後カラオケに行きたい人がたくさん多いですが、大きいグループで歌うことが嫌いし、学生たちと旅行もやだし、一人で寮に帰宅して早く寝ることにしました。After some info sessions we went with our E-pals to the city ward office to register our addresses and sign up for the Japan National Insurance, both of which are required. The process took so long as we had to wait in line. A lot of people went to karaoke after that, but I really don’t like singing in crowds and am a bit nervous when traveling with students so I just stayed home and slept early.

Tuesday

一番高いレベル授業にプレースされ、このプログラム中には、他の留学生とよく時間を過ごすと英語だけを話して、日本語が上達になりにくい雰囲気になり、ペラペラになるために日本語を没頭させようとする意識的な努力が必要です。日本語を話さなければならないために少なくとも一つのグラブに入りたいと思っています。I found out I got placed in the fourth level for Japanese. It will be very hard this program to improve because I have to make a conscious effort to immerse myself fully and not spend too much time with the other exchange students unfortunately, otherwise I will just speak English the whole time. I’m planning on joining at least one club so hopefully then I will have to really use it.

夜、お金や他のことについてストレスの思索があったので、東京駅のところを歩き回りました。店がだいたい高くて、午後9時まで閉まっていますが、出かけて良かったです。At night my thoughts were kind of agitated as I have a lot of stress about money and other things, so I decided to walk around Tokyo Station area. The shops are really expensive and close at 9PM, but it was nice to just be out.
