So this is my first Valentine’s Day in Japan. It was a good one! Many students brought in chocolates, candies, and even tea! Also, my lovely co-workers gave me chocolate, too! Not a bad day. But now I have to worry about getting (even more) fat from all of this candy! If anyone has some easy weight-loss ideas, please let me know. I prefer excercises that I can do while sitting down, or even better, while I am sleeping. Please let me know! I hope to see you all soon! Peace. /Sendai Study Advisor Stephen M.
