Tekanji the video game design student

Yesterday I took my entrance exams for HAL, a famous technical school in Japan, and got in. Starting April I will officially be studying video game design and planning for the next four years.

I took a tour yesterday and the school looks really, really awesome and the guy who’s in charge of coordinating the international students was really, really nice and I’m so happy that I got in that I could die.

So, anyway, yeah, that’s one huge worry lifted of my shoulders. Now I get to worry about finding an apartment, changing my visa over, and getting all my ducks in a row.

ETA: I’ve put up a blog on Iris where I’ll be talking more about this: The Life and Times of a Video Game Design Student

    Well, it actually won’t be over here. I’ve made a blog specifically for this topic over at Iris: The Life and Times of a Video Game Design Student. I’m working on the first article now.
