My 21st Birthday in Japan

この日本の留学プログラムで私の21歳のお誕生日を祝えて、感謝します。新しいお友だちと素敵な時間を過ごしました。もうすぐプログラムが終わってしまうので、大変寂しく思いますが、そのような思い出を絶対に忘れません!I had the privilege of celebrating my 21st birthday here in Japan during my study abroad experience. What a treat! I got to spend some quality eating time with some awesome new friends I have made. I will sincerely miss them all as this program is coming to a close, but moments like these I will never forget. 

12月2日にしゃぶしゃぶとお酒を飲食しに行き、食べ飲み放題は全部3000円ぐらいになりました。今書けば、またおなかが空いて、アメリカに戻る前にもう一回しゃぶしゃぶを食べようと思っています。その夜のアルコールは普通より強かったですが、悪いことが全然なかったのです。We went out for some shabu shabu and drinks for dinner. It was all you can eat and drink for about $30. Just writing about it now makes me super hungry so I think I’m going to treat myself to shabu shabu one more time while I’m here in Japan. The alcohol was a bit stronger than I’m used to and also a larger glass, but nothing bad happened so that’s good.

お友だちはバスデーケーキと名前が書いてあるチョコを買ってくれて、驚かせました。本当に愛しているんだと感じました。私のイパルのお陰で、日本の生活はもっと楽しくなり、すべての学年で同じ大学に通えなくて、悲しいですけれど、日本に戻ったらみんな会えるかもしれません。My friends surprised me with a birthday cake with a chocolate that said my name on it. I felt super loved and I want to give a special thanks to my e-pal. I love my e-pal a lot and am sad that we can’t go to the same school throughout the whole year, but I will probably come back to Japan soon so I can see everyone again!

Thanks to everyone who wrote on my wall on Facebook or messaged me personally. I am not the best at keeping in touch with everyone on a day-to-day basis, but I appreciate each and every one of you as God’s unique creation. Hopefully I will have many new adventures as a 21-year-old!
