Been here a while

 So it has been about 3 weeks since I got in to the United States of America. I have been busy in the past 3 week, I have been on the computer for about a collective hour.  I have relearned most of my English but I still have urges to speak Japanese.
In fact, I have a translating Job this summer in August. there is a group of Japanese students coming from a Japanese Univeristy to study the ecosystem around here and the teacher doesn't speak any Japanese and the students can't speak English. I hope I can come though for this week long job. It will look really good on a resume though.
I have a truck and I fill in all my free time working on it at the moment. Hopefully I will have a job of some sort coming up soon, It will take away from my truck but I need paint and gas.  The truck if blue and has ample rust around the edges. A tipical northern Michigan truck. I have got 4 holes patched and primed for painting. That leaves about 35 ro so rust holes to go. 
I have gotten the 2 other people that want to try kendo their hakama and kendogi. That is the basic uniform for those not in the know.  That means that we should have a Kendo Club in the Soo  now. After the armor comes in the mail we can worry about where we will practice. I have personaly tryed to keep practicing a little footwork when ever I can. I have not broken any thing yet so I will have to keep trying.
I went to Calven Collage for a Youth Exchange Conferance. It was great to see a ton of friends that were also away in other countries for a year. It was really fast the whole time during that weekend, but a lot of them from this area will meet one more time in October for the first rebound meeting in District 6290 ever.
I can't wait to talk to a few people now that I have a computer that is working now. I will be doing a lot of emailing tonight.
