To you, the reader who’s found this blog and reading this post, greetings! My name’s Mattie, and this is my old blog chronicling my time abroad studying at Yokohama National University during the 2012-2013 school year. Just a couple of bullet points before you dive deep in:
- This blog is hella old! Although I do hear about things I need to update from time to time, don’t expect the most timely of info! If you do have any tips/updates for me, let me know (comment on this post OR email me at mattie @ this domain), and I’ll gladly update the site to reflect the new information.
- If you’re here to take a look at an experience in studying abroad in Japan, go right ahead and take a look at some of the posts! It’s not particularly comprehensive or anything — I definitely do that blog thing where I’m all gung-ho about updating it at first and then slowly fall off the face of the earth — but I like to think I have a couple of good anecdotes.
- If you’re here because you’re going to YNU to study abroad, I recommend my Couple of Notes for Incoming Students series! If you have any questions, comment away, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
- Lastly, if you, yourself, have a study abroad blog, let me know about it — I’d love to read it, and I might link it in the sidebar too!
Thanks a lot for visiting, and I hope you find my writing informational, insightful, funny, or of worth otherwise. 😉 ◆
