I am so happy now. Today has to be the greatest monday of my life so far. I got back from school with no homework, when I went to work, they just said to go home because they didn't need me, so I came home and played Metroid Prime, I found out that nutang is no longer blocked on my computer, and I started thinking of stuff to write in it, then I found out that I will only have to pay 642 dollars instead of what I thought would be 3,000 dollars to go to Japan this summer, the aforementioned 642 dollars may seem like a lot of money to go to Japan for 2 months, and it may not even be that much, it may only be 142 dollars. The cost is as follows, Passport: 107 dollars, Program contribution if I get selected for 2 of the 4 scholarships that requires a contribution: 500 dollars, application fee: 35 dollars. If the cost is 142 dollars, I can make the payment and tuition in 1 paycheck, but if the cost is 642 dollars, then I'll need to save up about 5 or 6 paychecks. Some of you may be questioning why I'm going to Japan, I've been working during the last month on becoming a foreign exchange student to Japan, becuase the entire way of life of the Japanese people just absolutely amazes me. I still have one major stumbling block in my way though. Insurance. I need both a medical and dental policy, and I thought I had found one, but it only covered the first 30 days, then after 30 days, the rate jumps up 5 dollars per day. That wouldn't be so bad if, say I were only staying in Japan for 30-40 days, but after the 40th day, the cost instead of being 185 dollars like the site proclaimed is now 235 dollars, and by the end of the trip, it is 285 dollars, which exceeds my allowed budget by about 100 dollars for insurance. I will call the foreign exchange company tomorrow to see what they think would be a good route to take for insurance. I'm so excited about this. It blows my mind that God has set this in my path. Well, I can't think of anything else to write about. So, I'll write again later. C-ya then, and I'm still sorry it's been so long since I've updated.
heey it's good to see you're back. $642 for 2 months?! That's an awesome price. The orchestra was planning to go to London for $800 for only a week...then the price dropped to like$600...then it got raised to 1000...then ultimately it got cancelled because people backed out/couldn't pay....grr it annoyed me. anyway it's good you're back. have a good one » Ajibalaji89
