Only 257yen per can!

So, a lot has happened in the past week or so. Firstly, I signed up for Japanese lessons. My first class is tomorrow and I'm terrified. Long story short, last Friday I went to sign up for the class. And my brain took a mini-vacation as soon as I walked in the door. I could not for the life of me understand anything my teachers were saying. It was awful. So, I'm pretty sure my teachers all think I'm an idiot. But, it's all good. I've signed up for Beginners II and Kanji I. I figure, if I can't handle the II class, I'll drop down to Beginners I. I'm not too proud. Although, I'm a bit concerned about my books. No clue what I need for Kanji. And for my Beginners class, I could only get the English translation version. I ordered the normal, full Japanese version and it hasn't come in yet. Oops.
Oh, FYI. I'm using my iPod for most of these photos. My camera batteries died, and I'm too cheap to pick up more. Ahahaha. But, continuing on, I met David for lunch a few days ago. He was working at Natori for once and I was free, so we thought it'd be nice to have a lunch date. Albeit, out lunch date was McDonalds, but its all good. It was nice just to do lunch together. I got a Happy Set as usual, and got the PRECURE TOY! MUAHAHAHAHA! *cough* PreCure is a super popular girls anime in Japan. It's probably more popular than Sailor Moon was. It's nuts. Oh yeah, it came with STICKERS!
After lunch, I wandered over to the Bux and grabbed a drink. Nothing like a big, milky chai latte and a book to while away an afternoon. And they were playing Stevie Nicks on the Starbucks Radio, which is always awesome. Been reading the Casual Vacancy, JK Rowling's new book. I think it's not bad. There's a massive difference from Harry Potter, which I think is both good and bad. It's definitely a different story, but I feel like she's trying too hard in a few places. Could just be me. *shrug*
So, today David and I went shopping in Sendai. We didn't buy much, but I'm gonna be starting a small shopping service and wanted to get some market research done. Got a quick lunch at Freshness Burger and grabbed a quick drink from the Bux in the station.
After that, we just walked about and shopped. It was nice just to go out for a change. It's kinda expensive to travel into Sendai without a real purpose. But, it was a nice day. Kinda cold, though. It's finally starting to feel fall-like here. Thank god. Bring on the snow. Although, fall makes me really want soups more, since mum always does soups more in the colder months. And, in lieu of having turkey noodle soup shipped to me, I currently just wanna get my paws on some Campbells Tomato Soup. And, low and behold, I found it! Only 257yen per can! ...David said no. XD
We ended up buying a few housey things today, though. We invested in an adjustable sink shelf thing. It can hold up to 3kg and is big enough for us to put a cutting board on it. Woo! And while we were in the housey store, I picked up a Hitachi products booklet. For purely Arashi fangirl research purposes... *cough*
Oh, and I dyed my hair again. I'm back to my original brunette self. Woo~ I missed my lovely dark locks. I'll take a photo of it soon. I've been kinda headachey the past few days and I haven't really wanted to make myself look beautiful just for a picture. Ahahaha.

But that's about it. I start classes tomorrow morning, so I'll let y'all know how it goes. Hopefully well. I'm just praying that I don't suddenly get struck stupid again.
