Mail from YFU is fun. :)

Today some YFU stuff came in the mail.

Stuff like this:
  (I removed my last name, flight number and all that stuff from the image)

This particular type of stuff gave me information on packing, tickets and airport luggage restrictions as well as all my flight/airline seating information, along with a YFU nametag thing and YFU luggage tags.

This is my favorite type of stuff, if you didn't already know.

4 days until I leave! :) (Well, for the 3-day orientation in California...)

EDIT: My mom says since I'm posting stuff like this I must be pretty excited... I guess that's true. :D

UPDATE: I think I'll be attening "Tohoku Seikatsu Bunka University High School" ... but I'm not sure. According to the website, they have a Nursery School, Kindergarten, University High School, Junior College and University... so yeah. don't really know what to make of that. It makes about as much sense as their addresses, composed of sub-area, city block number, building number, area, ward, and then city.... plus, the building numbers are numbered in the order they were constructed. FUN, HUH. Moar updates to come later, hopefully.

My mom called YFU today... and...

I'm going to be living in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture in Japan!!! :D :D :D

I don't know what school I'm attending yet, but hopefully my host family will email me sometime soon (soon meaning before I call them, so it won't be as awkward :P ). Oh, and also: I have 3 host brothers-- ages 15, 20 and 22!

Here are some pictures of the city that I shamelessly took off the Wikipedia article on Sendai... the city's so beautiful!

5 days... I'm so excited!!! :)
