I was walking around my new campus when I noticed there was a big group of Japanese exchange students behind me.
A few of them were singing one of the songs from Frozen. When they came up next to me we kind of made awkward eye contact, so I said in Japanese, “Sure is popular, huh?”
They were totally not expecting someone to speak Japanese here. I had a real laugh with them for a few minutes as we talked about why we were here and what we were doing, but we went on our way.
It was awesome.
And now I found out there are Japanese girls in our apartment complex - a few of them just came by to use the microwave. This time no EHHHH, just “wait, you speak? why? why are you so good?”
It felt pretty good. Now to study even MORE!!
