August. Amazing. I know I pledged to post once a week, but truly, this is the first free evening I've had all month. And all last month. This course is kicking my ass. Fortunately it's kicking everyone else's ass (as one seasoned ICU veteran said, "yes, well; the Japanese do tend to overdo things, don't they?"), so I don't feel too bad when my tests come back with grades so bad I can't even tell my parents. More on that later. For now, I'll try to recap events by week, one per post, and change things up a bit with other posts too.
For now, here's a picture of me about to kick ass with a crappy fake katana. Not the course's ass, unfortunately. Undefined ass. But still.
