It’s hard to believe that the first month of 2009 is already finished. I hope 2009 is off to a good start for everyone. Are you all sticking to your resolutions? I’ve been doing pretty well with mine…or atleast one of them. I started working out at the gym this year. I’ve been going a few days a week and I’m already feeling better. But although that’s good, I’m not doing so good at spending money. But I’ll try harder at that next month. It’s hard to save money with all of the New Year’s sales. My other resolution was to meet more of our students. So come visit me at Ekimae or Izumi and we can get to know eachother. Until then…take care! Peace. /Sendai Study Advisor Stephen M.
