Basically, I have to walk the dog, write an assignment and clean, so I figure it's a perfect time to finally do a proper update!! Hello!! This is Ant! I haven't made a proper post since like March or something, so you've probs all forgotten me! I shall now all attempt to refresh your memories by writing a brief summary of stuff I've been doing. With subheadings and bullet points!

1. Arashi

- I haven't really been doing Arashi.
- I am going to Japan on Thursday with the intention of going to Kokuritsu on the weekend.
- The ticket prices are very expensive. I love Arashi, but omg the cheapest tickets are like 120,000 yen for nosebleed seats. If was paying that, I'd expect arena seats, and going out for sukiyaki with the members afterwards!
- Even though they're doing Yes? No?
- Scalpers are evil, though I suspect that a lot of these tickets are being sold by Nino or maybe Johnny himself. You could only ballot for 3 tickets this year but some people have listed more.
- We've applied for the audience for Shiyagare though, so that would be a nice consolation
- I've been rewatching old Shukudai and Himitsu episodes in the attempt to convert my uni friends. My friend Liam was converted by the "Revenge of the Parka" M5.
- I haven't watched the Sakuraiba date yet.

2. Japan

- Instead of going to Kokuritsu, I am going to buy these
- And hang out with my sister
- And go to Kochi, the birthplace of my favourite historical figure, Sakamoto Ryoma
- And eat rare and luxurious foods
- And possibly stay in a hotel that overlooks Kokuritsu on Friday and Saturday night. With binoculars.
- Everything else that is happening in my life is while I'm going to be in Japan, like my midterm exams, the Japanese speech contest and the info night on my Japan exchange
- Oh yeah, I got approved to study in Japan next year, yay

3. Uni

- I got insanely good marks last semester
- I got in the Dean's honor list or something. I didn't even know my uni had one. You don't get money or anything good for it though.
- This has lead to laziness this semester
- I'm doing this class called "Understanding Japanese Society", which isn't very interesting. English was boring but now that we've stopped studying sonnets, it's better.
- I really love my Japanese class. I've been hanging out a lot with my Japanese class buddies. Last semester we studied together but this semester we're mostly eating and playing pool.
- I won two games the other day

4. Home

- I found this company that matches your dog up with like a homestay family while you're on holiday. I really didn't want to put her in a boarding kennel, and this is like half the price anyway. We went to meet them today and they are very nice, they have a german short-haired pointer called Willow. Willow was lovely and I want to steal her.
- I haven't cleaned my room in like six months
- My housemates aren't very annoying at the moment
- My sister is moving home the week after I get back from Japan. I will need to rearrange furniture! It will be good to have someone to watch Arashi with again.

5. Other stuff

- Why are all the dramas this season about girls dressing as boys? Ouran is good, Ikemen desu ne - it's okay but it's the only time I've preferred the Korean version of something. I can't watch New Hana Kimi, it's crap.
- I wish I had chocolate milk
- I have new hair. The hairdresser put these ugly chunks of layer around my face, so I cut them off when I got home. It looks better now.
- I have lost my earphones. I don't want to buy new ones until I go to Japan, but the spares are like this earphone/earflap hat combination
- I should probably walk the dog before it gets dark.
