It was a really gorgeous day this past Sunday, and I took this photo of my plants enjoying the sunlight. Photosynthesis, baby!
I had my first day of classes with my high school students today, and it went much better than I had expected it would, and that makes me very happy.
About 2 years ago, I contributed to a College Prowler guidebook for study abroad. At the time, I was working at the Penn State Office of International Programs a couple of days a week as a Peer Advisor. I was (and still am) a big advocate of studying abroad. In any case, College Prowler finally got around to publishing the stuff I wrote on Japan for the guidebook. To be absolutely honest, the sections on “Dining” “Nightlife” and “Guys and Girls” kind of sucked for me to write, since I didn’t really do a whole lot of those things because I was living with a host family. When you’re reading it… please skip over those sections, and remember, it’s heavily edited! I got paid for writing it (not much, but like.. whatevs.) So I guess I’m a real writer now. I also had a lot of help from people from Gaidai who helped me out with questionnaires, and I want to publicly thank ALL of you! Thank you!!! Holla! So, without further ado: The College Prowler Ultimate Guide to Study Abroad: Osaka, Japan.
Photosynthesis! For the wolf!
