Today I had an exchange student graduation celebration. They gave us official looking sheets of paper with Japanese on it! That's all I can ask for.

Also today was my last day in Japan, I leave in 11 hours. Wish me luck. I am both happy and sad and I think that mixes into anxiousness. I'm going to sleep like it's Christmas tomorrow. I love each and everyone of you!!

Today I went to a rock concert in Japan at the Venue Be1 Drum.

It was really different. When we got there they lined us up according to your ticket number. I was 274. haha oh well. I was in the back, but no worries, it was a really small venue. The band immediately came on, exactly on time. (of course) There was no warm up band. The first song came on and the audience started moving together. They knew exactly which way to dance during every song. The dancing consisted of hand movements, head banging, and arm pounding. After awhile I got used to it, it was too cute. Most of the audience were girls, but during breaks, you could hear them growling at the band on stage, it was a little bit startling. The band was really good, all the guys were better dressed then I have ever been in my life. The crowd was amazing, they got two encores out of them. The show got out early around 8:30. All the merch was overpriced but Janelle told me a $35 dollar shirt was cheap, at some concerts they are as much as $80. I'm so happy I will be able to say I've been to a JRock Concert! :)
