The Japanese government has just declared a state of emergency for Hiroshima, which is where the cosmetics exam is to be held. So, I won’t be taking the test next week. I’m a bit annoyed, because I’ve been studying for it quite hard, but there are worse things that can happen I suppose. I guess I’ll just take the test in November or next May.
In the meantime, I can get back to reading (hurray!). I’m going to start “Bungo wa minna utsu”, which translates as “All the literary masters had depression.” It’s a book about Japanese writers and mental illness. I’m also going to start studying for two pharmacology exams in November. And I can get back to my French and Chinese, so not all bad!
