Typhoon is coming

Today it rained again. It's starting to get a bit annoying because when you have to walk for 15 minutes to the station, you invariably get wet even when you have an umbrella and a raincoat on. Going to uni this morning was okay - the rain was so light i didn't bother opening up my umbrella. Coming home was a different story.

Apparently tomorrow there is going to be another typhoon. So today's crappy weather is sort of the lead up to it. What should be fun is we have another exchange student outing happening tomorrow night - which will probably be smack bang in the middle of when the typhoon crashes into Tokyo. Maybe we'll just stay overnight at some karaoke place instead of trying to wade through the water...

In any case, today was relatively uninteresting. Had a nice sleep in till about 10am, then headed to uni to meet up wif Simone for lunch. She came all the way in to school to give me and Tony some stuff she printed for us~ (Thanks Simone!). I managed to waste the next 2 hours walking around the uni bookroom wif Kelly looking for some sort of Keio University memorabilia to buy. In the end neither of us got anything with Keio uni written on it. I did try some weird Japanese snack thing which was takoyaki (fried octopus ball) flavoured though lol.

Class at 2:45 was my economics class (in english); which was quite interesting i suppose. Ichikawa sensei basically just gave a lecture on the changes to the japanese economy immediately following world war 2 which was a nice introduction for me. There was about 10 more people in the class compared to last week - so the room was really packed full today. There's actually some Japanese students in the class now - and they all seem to speak very good english.

I stopped at the supermarket on the way home wif Jakob, and got a bag of rice; and about 20 other things i probably didn't need to buy (like chocolate cookies; kit-kats; potatoes; milk tea... the list goes on). The walk home was the most painful walk yet. Do you have any idea how hard it is to carry 10 kg of shopping on one hand; ur uni books on ur back; and still keep the umbrella between you and the rain? Let's just say i couldn't feel my fingers by the time i got home. Jakob had the same problem coz he decided to buy 3 or 4 two litre drinks lol.

Anyway i've spent long enough writing this (and putting off doing my homework...) so it's time to go~!


P.S. Where's the comments people?! My blog is starting to feel very lonely hehe.

Its not suprising you're buying a whole heap of things you don't really need. Actually, i'm not really sure why its not suprising, normally you don't do that. But you seem to be buying a lot of stuff lately, just general stuff.

Don't worry, we all still read your blog, I've just usually got nothing to say as usual. But heres at least one comment for today (at least you get some).
