Demashita!! ^O^ It comes out TOMORROW, please please buy it!  
I am now a published writer!!! ^O^ ^O^ ^O^!!! (Well, as of tomorrow) =D

A while back, I mentioned that I'd been asked to start a column in a newspaper. Well, it's finally coming out, TOMORROW! =D *celebrates*
* My column is called "Walking Tokyo"
* And it's running in Asahi's weekly english newspaper
* Which goes on sale every Sunday for ¥250.
* My column is going to run once a month
* And it covers places in Tokyo and the surrounding area that I think are interesting, as well as any cultural or other interesting things that I come across. Pretty much like my blog, which is how the amazingly nice editors found me and asked me to write for them! ^_____^

The newspaper is aimed at Japanese-speakers who are interested in learning english, but it's actually quite interesting for native speakers as well, I think. Please, please please if you have an extra ¥250, please go down to the convenience store/newspaper stand/bookstore/station/ etc, and get it! ^O^ It's the first time that I've ever professionally published my writing, photos, and artwork in a publication outside of school. So, I am really, really excited! It was fun to write, too! ^.^

PS: Moonlight is back!!!! And did anyone see all of the hilarious Ghost Hunters, Blair Witch, House on Haunted Hill, etc, parodies in last night's Supernatural? Awesome awesome. <3<3
