[sticky post] yeah  
it's safe to say that I don't use this journal anymore...and tbh all I would do was rant and complain and idk, it seems kinda stupid to do that now, when I should focus on the positives?????  it's hard to explain.

currently I'm in Japan on that kindergarten scholarship. it's a lot of fun and every day is exciting and I'm enjoying it heaps.

you can find me at http://kiwi-in-japan.tumblr.com/ for my experience here, and also at http://metusmetus.tumblr.com/ for not-so japan stuff.

sorry it took me nearly half a yea to getting around to this stuff.

friends only

はじめまして!I'm Ana. Or, something along those lines. I speak rudimentary 日本語, and I play the violin [among many others]. I live in a country which has 43 million sheep, which is roughly 11 sheep to every person. No, sheep don't roam the streets like birds, contrary to [apparent] popular belief. They're kept in paddocks. Like normal farm animals.

This is a personal journal at times- I've tried to have a separate journal for fics but I just got lazy so it's all piled into here. Fics will be public, if I ever publish them on here, or you can go to my FF.net profile [the link can be found on my profile].

I'm pretty open, and I certainly won't bite if you comment. I love making new friends and gossiping about fandom.

I had my interview today! It went pretty well, I think. One of the guys who works for the company that's organising this exchange said that I had a very good chance of getting it, which is nice. But then again, he could be saying it to everyone who's applying, so idk.

I found out a little bit more about the program -- in the morning I work at the kindergarten, and in the afternoon I go to the highschool and spend my time either in japanese or english lessons. I think I also have to help out at english club but that's okay. I have to live on my own(ish), and make all my breakfasts and dinners and some lunches. I'll be expected to help out on cultural days and festivals, and I'll probably be wearing their uniform haha. idk if they'll have one that fits me...I'm not exactly a waif-like figure.

They seemed very impressed with my musical ability, and my previous experience with little kids. I really hope I get this. dad seems to be getting more and more resigned to me going (yes!) and I think both him and mum will really throw hissy fits if I get this.

Apparently the descion could've been made as soon as tonight, so there'll prolly be a phonecall or email tomorrow. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.

in other news, I'm seeing doctor who in cinemas tomorrow! so excited!

I've been a little...dead I guess. Sorry!

I have exams coming up and I'm pretty terrified, to tell the truth. I know I should be studying constantly now but I'm lazy and tired and lots of other excuses.

In other news, I might be going to Japan for a year! There's an opportunity to go and teach English over at a private kindergarten in Fukuoka prefecture, Kyushu. I've sent off my application and now all I can do is wait and hear if they want me. It's a pretty sweet gig to be honest -- they'll pay for flights, accommodating, food and travel expenses, and potentially a living allowance as well. My parents aren't too happy, my father especially, but considering I'll be 18 in less than a month, there's not a lot that he can do. I guess he could refuse to drive me to the airport if he really wants to be difficult, haha.

Otherwise, if that plan doesn't work out, I have uni at least, woohoo. Terrified by that too, to be honest. Everything is terrifying. I don't want to grow up.

Currently I'm playing L.A. Noire. It's great. I'm both a terrible detective and driver.

I can't wait for this week to end. School's out for a couple of weeks, I have a small party to go to, as well as planning my own. Yay, social life!

I feel horrible saying this.

cut time.

pretty much the only people affected are those who never talk with me or have never updated their journal in forever. however, if you are found to be cut and you don't want to taken off my flist, comment and I'll add you back.
