Ok the rest I can't really do in Japanese right now. OK so my foreign exchange friend told me what organization she used so I registered with that organization to go to Japan. So now I am 3rd on a waiting list for a host family to go to Japan. Hopefully I will get one. My admissions counselour seems really confident that I will get one. As long as I get a host family, I will be able to go and I will leave this August and stay for 6 months! So that's why I have been so busy. I need to finish both volumes of Genki before I go so I've been studying everyday. I also need to finish the Michel Thomas Japanese CDs.
