New acquaintances

I met some new people in the last two days.

Yesterday I went to Tokyu Square in nearby Hachioji to check out its international exchange corner. After reading some brochures I approached the reception lady. Apparently she's a close friend of the last Epson intern from Canada, Candy! Her name is Tsuneko. According to her, she acted like a mother to Candy. We chatted a bit, exchanged contacts, and then she left.

I lingered a bit and visited a volunteer club with a long name: Club of Children and Students Working Together for [a] Multicultural Society (CCS). I told them I wanted to join CCS. I was rejected because I'm working here and not studying here. Not all was bad however, as I met some people around my age who were volunteering there. Again, some new contacts, and this time I was first to leave.

Today I met two fellow gaijins on the stairs to my apartment. It seems easy to befriend other foreigners in Japan. I think it's because we share a lot of experiences here and are in similar situations, and voila - that's the important common ground.

I think I'll leave this spam post for the humour it provides.

So being "human" is to drive through liqour stores and get drunk so we can go home and watch pornography?

What a concept.

The guy should write a thesis on that, 'cause it goes against pretty much all philosophical and psychological views.

Funny anonymous spammers.

Hmmm...so Club of Children and Students Working Together for [a] Multicultural Society gets abbreviated to only CCS? Awww...what was that game name that ended up being joking abbreviated to MoO2BaA?
