|The nihonjin that have been helping Shae learn Japanese.|
It's been 2 weeks. WHAT. Literally the MTC is like a time warp. I never know what day it is... like ever hahaha. The days feel like years but the weeks pass in like 30 seconds. It's craaaaaazzzzyyyy!
This week was amazing. I feel like I have the hang of things now which is super nice. We got 2 new teachers this week and WOW they are the best. I seriously lucked out so hard core here. #shukufuku (that means #blessings in case you were wondering... get it trending kids;) My teachers are so inspiring and so understanding. I just love them. They focus a lot now on teaching by the spirit. I've noticed that the language comes easiest when I am not trying to focus on it. I am not the one teaching anyways, it's the spirit. The gift of tongues is SO cool. I loveeeee Japanese. It's hard, but now I can read 1 of the 3 alphabets so that's good!
Japanese fun fact of the day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Japanese directly translate to morning rice, afternoon rice, and evening rice. YA I KNOW. Wow I love Asia.
On Sunday for our 24th of July extravaganza we got Nashville Tribute Band as our devotional. It was sooooo fun! Me and my comp are in the choir so we got to sing with them.. Soooo now we're basically famous... along with the other 1400 missionaries in the choir, but hey it counts;)
OKAY. I forgot to put this in my email last week and wrote it down so I wouldn't forget to send this lovely information out to the world. MY BUNK BED IS COVERED WITH BOOGERS. Yep. You heard it here folks. Covered. (sorry if you all threw up in your mouths but I mean hey, at least you don't have to stare at it every night..... LOL) I am on the bottom bunk and so when I go to lay my head down at night I get a great view of all the lovely boogers on the bottom of the top bunk as well as on the wall. It's quite the view....... Memories right? HAHA. I found it and immediately made everyone come and see. It's now the joke of our residence hall... Yikes.
|These two are already best friends.|
My companion is still amazing and my district is getting closer and closer as the days pass. I have decided that I am probably never going to come home.... Sorry Mom. I just love being a missionary way too much!
I love you all! My pdays are Wednesdays but I can read emails anytime! They also give us like .23 seconds to email so I promise if I can't respond one week I will respond the next. Thank you for the love and the prayers!!
Our teacher taught us how to say "I'm out" this week... It directly translates to I'm outside.. But hey it counts for something hahah! Soooo.... till next week... Watashi wa soto desu! I'm out!
