Hi everyone!

Just wanted to give a quick update on my health. As you may recall, I broke my left arm two weeks ago, and have been walking around with a sling for most of that time. However, today things are looking up.

I was at the hospital, and after examining my x-ray slides, the doctor said that I can start using the sling less. I also discovered that I am able to type with both hands again. Now it will probably be another two weeks and I should be back to normal. Fingers crossed.

Other than that, I am in a bit of a bind economically. For reasons I fear I shall never fully comprehend, someone high up decided it was a good idea to not give us our scholarship last month, instead paying it out this month along with the regular amount. This, coupled with the money I have to pay the hospital, leaves me with about 1000 yen to live on for the following two weeks. And no, that is not an awful lot of money.

But I'm sure I'll be fine. I am pretty good at conserving money, and although I might have to skip a meal or two over the next two weeks, I know I'll be feasting once the scholarship money arrives. All-you-can-eat grilled meat buffet, anyone? Oh yes.

Until next time, everyone, have a good day!


  1. These are great news, everything will be really normal soon!

  2. I guess a ramen diet isn't as cheap in Japan as it is in America.

  3. Good luck on surviving with that income. At least you're recovering quickly!

  4. Good luck and hang in there
