Well I guess technically I never left?
So yeah, been a few weeks since I last posted, but finally, yesterday (July 1st) was the JLPT exam I’ve been studying for for the last couple of months. 100% sure I passed the first 2 sections, though the last (listening) section may have been my downfall (though still cautiously optimistic).
There was though a really (unintentionally) funny moment during the listening section: picture an exam hall with a few hundred folks in, everyone’s pretty tense with it being a potentially important exam (though N3 isn’t that important I guess…) and at the end of one of the questions there’s a pause, and a voice on the tape that says “let’s take a break” but you know, in Japanese, and then like 20 seconds of basically this:
So everyone’s basically just still holding their pencils just waiting for this seemingly endless 20 seconds to finish…it was a little surreal and I couldn’t help but chuckle a little. The exam invigilators didn’t even crack a smile though.
Anyway, hopefully now I’ll have a little more time to post stuff or you know, do stuff.
