So the weekend just happened. Im not going to lie it was a pretty sweet time. to start it off we went out in the morning down to the beach to walk the dogs. it was beautiful. sadly i didnt bring my camera for this or many of the events i will be talking about . it was acting stupid. anyway the beach was really nice but my smaller host bro was holding up the walk pretty badly so we had to ditch him halfway through. the dogs names are kutpi and jyubi. they are some pretty fine dogs. only problem is i never have seen them being fed... ever.. they might want to try to do that.
anyway after this i came back home and did what i always do, i napped until my older host brother came back home. yah might think this is a bad thing and i should be out doing stuff. but im going to be honest their aint too much to do around here when everyone is either asleep or sitting around watching tv.
anway after that rousing walk and nap combo my host dad woke me up and me and 3 girls ( host bros cousin and her friends) all went on a huge tour of the town for a long time. it was amazing. there are some pictures on the last post showcasing it. but i dont think they really do it justice. its amazing.
after the tour and some lunch at the most japanese resturant ive been to since ive been here. i went back home. shortly after getting back home my host brother returned and we left on bikes off to play some pool. when we arived at the pool/ bowling place. we played some taiko drum game which was a ton of fun. i won both rounds we played.
so we played some pool once everyone arived. and let me just say, i sucked. i sucked bad. i think i got all of 2 balls in out of like 5 games.one of the kids was especially good at it. i think at one point he had a 5 ball streak.
after a couple of great games of pool we went down to a hamburger shop. i had a chicken burger. this place looked and felt like a fast food place but it was the opposite. i had some professional orange juice in a beer mug, a chicken burger that tasted as good as it looked without being unhealthy for you (unlike in america). and fries that looked more like they cubed and elongated potatos then crisped them up a bit ( in other words nothing like the fries back home). all around it all tasted just better then back home chicken burgers and was better for ya too.
after the food we went to a super market and i got ... nothing :) we got home like 10 mins late and my host mom was angry at host bro but i think she waited until after our card game which we played after i got home to tell him off. while we played the card game we watched transformers ... in japanese. and let me just say....... i couldnt understand a word.
anyway that was saturday. now for sunday. sunday started off stupidly. the day before the family said. " sure you can sleep in" so i assumed hey i can sleep till 12 and then we will go out and do stuff. NO. i slept until 8 (4 hours before i usually get up back home) and then they woke me up for ... nothing. absolutely nothing. we didnt do anything until like 12. at 12 we went down to the ocean for a good old swim time. it was really fun. i was reluctant at first to get in but once i was in i was in to stay. they had to work to get me out of there.
after this ... im not really sure what we did. the only thing i really remember was seeing a really really fat american lady leaving the ocean. i think that he largeness blocked out the rest of my memory.
so the next thing i remember is that we had a little celebration for fathers day. the cousins came over again and we had a little thing for the dad and grandfather. all the men gave a speech (including me). one of the cousins refused to move a towel they were holding from in front of their face and im not sure why. also that night was the first night i saw my little host bro nude. i say this because it has happened the next day (today) as well and i assume it will happen a lot more (He aint pretty).
anyway so then school came again. it was a pretty standard day of school. except today the place were we usually eat lunch was closed :(. so we ate in the math room. after i got done eating my host brother told me to wash out my little plastic stuff before i threw it away.. so i did. but then he said "one more time please" so i went to do it again but he took it from me this time. so ya know i assumed that was the end of it. Nope. 3 hours later at the end of school i found out he left it outside in the washing place for me to wash. kind of supprised me but oh well.
so another thing that happened today was. it seemed me and the girls of the classes seem to be getting along better and better. we talk more, play games and even sang songs today.
id have to say though that the worst part of the day happened at the very end of school. for 2 hours we had to sit in the gym and listen to a speech about memorial day here in japan (which is tomorrow so no school). anyway it wouldnt be that but if it wasnt for a few things. first off. its about a billion degrees in that gym. and its humid to boot. not only that but some old guy was talking in japanese and i couldnt understand it. next off i wasnt allowed to talk the whole time. which made it extra boring. lastly the floor was very uncormfortable and i felt like lieing down the entire time. but no. anyway the rest of the day has gone pretty eventless so far. i got home and ive been here ever since. we are about to eat dinner so i got to go but i`ll post some pictures later prolly.
