Today when I was hanging out with Masami, she decided to take the Japanese pronunciation of my name and turn it into a real Japanese name with meaning. My name is normally written in a form designated to imported words and names, but we added Japanese tradition. It reads: 人麗芭. Literally translates as “blossoming human companion”…how cool! It fits right??
It was the first day of the semester, so we have begun our journey. Class was very easy today, however, because it was straight review of the material I’ve had down pat for a while. Glancing through the book, it looks like we dive deep real quick, so not too much time for stress free classes.
My Japanese friends and I took some pictures together, and as soon as Masami emails them to me, I will post on Picasa.
