Guess What!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I GOT A PLACE AT EXETER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEYYYYYY!!!!! I'll be leaving for the UK in July and meanwhile, I'll do some volunteer work and/or work part time.
The first activity is the day after tomorrow. I'm going to World Vision Tokyo office and volunteer once a week until the end of February. Also I'll volunteer in farming.


  1. Good! They would be crazy to reject someone with your amazing talents!

    Farming? That sounds like fun! I have always said that all students should spend a week toiling on the land to appreciate the hard work that goes into food production. Where will you work? I recommend a pig farm. Will get you ready to deal with drunk British women!!! HAHAHA!!!

  2. Um, I dont think I will be looking after pigs or any kind of animal for that matter. Less smelly things like strawberries or something. But I can't really say anything in detail at the moment. I don't know what I will be doing. All I know is that the place is called Tegomaru.

  3. Well, I am sure "M" had other things on his mind plus if you were not in uniform you probably didn't exist in their eyes. It's the in-group/out-group thing. I hope they do well.

    I know Tegomaru. There was a farmer there who had trained his pigs to sing. That was about 15 years ago. He was on TV. He put the pigs in a special cage so that they were placed side by side. There was some sort of electrical shock administered to them every time he pushed a button. Each pig was trained to squeal a particular note. They could squeal/sing the national anthem of Japan. Maybe you will get to work with him.
