well after months of preparation, well-wishes, self pep talks, and prayers...i got my japanese driver's license!
you are not supposed to smile, which i knew, but i didn't even realize she had taken the picture, which is why i look so unenthused. i had just been at the license office for 5 straight hours, so i was a little tired. but don't let the look fool you, i was INCREDIBLY HAPPY! and i still am.
