I know it has been way over a week since I last posted (more like a month), but things have been so crazy this blog has been the last thing on my mind. I am back and will try to update it every week again. So much has happened! Christmas has greatly helped my fundraising. Also, I found out that I will be eligible for a $200 award since my mom is an AFS volunteer! I continue to apply for scholarships with nothing just yet. Eventually I hope to get something; I just need to be patient and persistent. I am preparing letters to send out to companies; hopefully they will be mailed within the next week. On a side note, a group of Japanese exchange students spent their winter break near me so I was able to hang out with them and participate in their activities. With their help my Japanese has greatly improved and I have made some amazing friends!
でわ、またね！Until next time,
