Day 1: Orientation

From 9:30 to 12:00, people from AOTS, METI and other organizations
talked about the course we are about to take. In the afternoon, we
took written tests. I forgot the hiragana for “sa”. How embarrassing!
I also forgot the kanji for “sakana” (fish), and the reading for the
character that means to stand up. Still, I finished the 100 kanji test
easily. I barely figured out three or four on the 200 kanji test,
though, so I’ll need to study a lot more.

Kondo-sama said that after this program, we might be able to pass the
level 2 or level 3 Japanese Language Proficiency Test. That would be
rather nice.

I’m in section K. The other two Filipinos are in section L. We’ll see
how things turn out tomorrow.

Org maintainer ultra-active! ^_^

The org.el maintainer seems to be as compulsive as I am; probably
Googles for org.el just like I check for PlannerMode and planner.el.
Just got e-mail about my thoughts on org.el. Will reply soon.
