Rainy Season

Every summer, Japan has a wet, rainy season. It is hitting especially hard this year, and there hasn't been a nice clear day for a good week and a half now. This bad stretch of weather just happens to correspond with the leaving of my girlfriend to China, Lauren. (Sobs)

Here's a little squall coming through in the middle of my Japanese lesson with our exchange student. This happens often.

Back

I've been slacking incredibly. Part of it has been being really busy this past month, part of it has been my laziness, but either way, I'm back. How many of these have I done? Not sure. Here's hoping this one sticks.

Random pictures and movies from the past month.



Top left: Our school baseball team made it to the top 8 in our prefecture, the first time we've ever gotten this far. The entire school came out in support.
Top right: The beginning of the game. We lost 6-5 on an error in the bottom of the ninth, two outs. One of the most exciting baseball games I've ever seen, for real.
Bottom left: Anything strange about this picture? I've been photoshopped into it!
Bottom right: Mexican food in Japan. It wasn't bad, kinda expensive.

Surf trip with the boys to Shikoku. Was excellent.
