So for Golden Week, I went to the beautiful Ryukyu Islands!  Thank you very much to Takuya and the Kaneshiro Family, my visit to the islands was an adventure filled with incredible new experiences!  I got to swim under a beautiful waterfall, eat some delicious goat sashimi, and even kiss an anaconda.

The beginning of the Spring Semester at Akita International University started off with a big bang!  As soon as I returned to school, I was greeted with such awesome enthusiasm from all my friends.  Of course, I was just as excited to see them too!
