Over 40 GTS Clan members showed UP!

The dinner was incredibly successful with over 40 people showing up. It was so many comrades that I even could not keep my seating place! Over a dozen former study abroad participants with some new faces! Maybe 6 female students from Hiroshima attracted quite a few folks! GTS was so happy to see all the smiling comrades and got really energized and ready to 'scare' students in class! Besides students from Hiroshima and COD, they were from DePaul U, Elmhurst C, North Central C, UIC, IIT, NIU, Eastern Michigan U, etc. Thank you for all for the beginning of the academic year 2009! Next dinner? Too early to worry but it will be on Friday 10/2/2009! The first quiz will be coming up on Tuesday next week at 1101 so there will be more empty seats in class after that!!

So Mischa and I checked our classes yesterday and saw that Chikamatsu-sensei isn't teaching our class. We have someone named Anno instead. I don't know who that is... o_o;;

GTS said...

OK,ask Abdallah! He had her as a teacher! I know Anno very well! You can tell her that you are Shingo's students! -GTS

We had our first class, and it was TERRIFYING!

Not terrifying enough for me to shut up though. :D But! I was quieter than usual (!). It will pass!

She seemed really nice, and her rate my professor said that she brings food to class. >:D

I think we were all a little retarded because it was the first day. The tests looked scary because we have to actually write out the kanji sometimes. >.o

GTS said...

Oh! That was what I expected. yes, she brings food! Her husband is a paster at his church. -GTS

Btw we took our first vocab quiz and so far, it was easy and nowhere near the amount of stress required for a Shingo quiz. But then again, it was only the first quiz. We shall see what happens next.

And it was definitely a lot less terrifying after on the second day of class. ^_^
