A quick recap of the alumni meeting I attended yesterday to meet with other students that have previously studied abroad in Japan! Full of pictures of my school in Japan, information about the program, and a whoooole lot of excitement.

April was a fair month, and it wasn’t too busy. I got to see one of my favorite bands — Bastille — in concert for the second time, which was the first time I’ve ever seen a band for a second time! Honestly, I didn’t have any severe post-concert sadness. I’m still suffering from the One Ok Rock concert in Los Angeles since I think about it everyday.

I hung out with friends a lot this month, and I’m so glad. I’ve had a hard time up until this year when it came to friends, but meeting S & C has really changed things for me.

A manifesto is a published declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer. The Japan Manifesto exists to give me something to look back on when I'm in Japan, especially if I need encouragement. Hopefully, the following things will make me a better traveler and human being.

I've mentioned before that learning Japanese has opened new doors for me in a lot of different ways, including introducing me to new and incredible people. Recently, I met one of the girls who's also studying abroad with me in Japan!

Lately I've found myself ignoring all television that isn't Japanese dramas. Apparently, I'm a fan of the ones that make me laugh and cry in equal measure and deal with incredibly complex characters. Here are some I've watched recently!
