Hello, I’m Aaron Shaw from Kai’s 6-Morning class! I’m from North Carolina in America and this is my second time living in Japan. The first time was when I studied abroad at Sophia University for the 2013-2014 school year. I just graduated from university with a degree in Accounting in May and I came back to Japan to study at Kai this past June. I’m still part of a dance club at Sophia University from the time when I studied abroad there, so expect a few posts relating to club life/activities! Once I finish Kai’s level 8 class I plan to move on to graduate school here in Japan.
As you might expect most of my free time goes into studying for the JLPT/class and practicing dance. When I’m not doing one of those activities I tend to enjoy activities such as visiting onsen/sentou (public baths), going to karaoke, trying new restaurants, and going out drinking. I’m a rather social person so I don’t like spending too much time alone in my room. As a result I ended up choosing a share house as a place to live in! I live along the Seibu-Shinjuku line, which means that if I tell someone the name of my station they look at me funny because they’ve never heard of it! Luckily the area I live in is nice and quiet with all sorts of stores around.
Nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy my posts!
