No, I’m not quite at the point yet where I make a newspaper, though I am now putting news into paper form.

What I am doing is making a newsletter.

To Clique or Not to Clique. That is the question?

Japanese school group

Yeah. I know. The title is incredibly incorrect.
Too bad. ;P

I have grouped up invited some people to join me. I’ll only give you the first names of the people I’ve invited, unless the people who’s names I’ve written want me to do otherwise.
Brandon, Brazen, Sheila and I will be going to Japan, presumably for a whole year, if we don’t get extensions while there. After we get to Japan, we’ll have the time of our lives, and while we’re there, we’ll be seeing the sights, exploring, and learning all about the culture.

BUT WAIT ALEX, ITS TOO EXPENSIVE!!
Yeah, it will cost a lot, but we will do fundraising and apply for scholarships.

For this!? One MILLION DOLLARS!

So to get to Japan during High School, I need to go with a very special type of group/program.

Why?
Well, because I can’t just buy a plane ticket and fly to Japan, then sign up for High School. In need to be put in the system. And I need a visa. My mum told me it was IMPOSSIBLE for me to get back to 日本 for a year during HS. She said that I would need to wait for my second year of College. Without even looking for a program, I stumbled apon this: Association of Teachers of Japanese. I had found the source I was looking for stumbled upon. I got really excited, and called my friend (because he also wants to leave the lovely  U. S. of A.  ASAP)

Here is the problem; I don;t really have the money it costs right now. The most expensive program: $11,950
The cheapest program: $7,200, However, the cheapest one dosn’t have any details about the trip itself at all. The most expensive one is also run by the most prestigious program, the AFS. The second most prestigious program was actually somewhere on the higher scale of the prices at $10,995.
