My study abroad year in Japan...
I am so sorry for you.I am with YFU, and I have yet to receive a message, but seeing that AFS got cancelled, there is a very big chance ours will too. This is not fair ;_;Daniel.
This sucks so much. I don't want to go in august!!! We're going to miss everything. The natsu matsuri and the sakura and everything else!!! I'm so with you on this one.
I know right? We're missing all the good stuff!! I don't want to go in August either, but I might...I'm not sure yet...
I'm sorry to hear about this. I'm awaiting to hear back from YFU on my summer exchange to Japan. (I just got a similar first letter like *Postponed* but not exactly..) & it's a really rocky boat now for everyone that I see AFS isn't allowing the Spring people to go to Japan. u ___u It's really sad, I really wanted you to go now too so I could read about it! But everything happens for a reason (even if you cant see it now) & things will turn out for the best!Why can't you just stay a Year in August? like from Aug 11 till June/July 12.?Keep your head up ! :D
I want to, but they don't offer that program in the US and most other countries, but a bunch of us are gonna write letters and try to make them make an exception for us.
I wonder if the people who have lost their families are crying as much.Sure it was a missed chance, and it must be disappointing, but you have to understand why it's canceled.
@Anonymous: No, it's not as bad as losing a family member and of course I understand why it's canceled, but having your dreams lost still hurts a lot :/ Please don't even play that card. Seriously. -_-
Also @ Anonymous: Don't think I don't care about the people in Japan. Of course I know I'm being selfish for still wanting to go after all this has happened. Watching the news makes me cry and I want to help in anyway I can, but I know I can't really do anything other than donate...It doesn't mean I still can't be sad that I can't go on exchange. Part of the reason I am so sad is *because* of what's going on and the thousand's of people homeless and the thousands that died. Everyday I think of how these people must be suffering, and I wish they didn't have to go through this. It's truly just awful. Please don't post those kinds of comments without even knowing how I honestly feel.
Also, (I just edit this in but blogger doesn't have that option) You have NO idea how I feel right now. I've wanted this for years, and just to have it taken suddenly, just hurts a lot, you're not in my position so don't tell me I shouldn't be this upset because my dreams were just crushed. >:( Hmpf.
