Vancouver and the JLPT...

So, the JLPT is finally over. Yay! I really don't know how I did... >.<;; The first question on the reading section had me going O_O;; *sigh* That said, I'm still hoping to take JLPT1 next year. ^^;; That ought to be fun...

BTW, for those who did the JLPT, what was with some of those rules?! Or was that designed for those people taking the exam in Japan vs. those of us here who take it many hours later? Some of them were a bit weird. O_o


Otherwise, my hotel stay has been a bit mixed but overall quite positive. Room service this morning was terrible; the food was cold (service was fine). When I called to have the tray picked up and mentioned it, the girl told me (after I got back from the JLPT) that the charge was removed from my hotel bill as I'd barely eaten any of it. I ended up having lunch at the hotel restaurant as it was snowing quite heavily (in Vancouver!) and they gave me a complimentary dessert with lunch for having finished the exam. (Not sure about that. Maybe I looked like I needed it?? ^^; ) All in all, the hotel's been very good and prompt at dealing with any issues which is a nice change from the pretentious attitude I've often run into at hotels in this city.

Tomorrow I have to decide where I'm going to go. I hope my legs will hold out, but I decided to wear my new (literally never worn before this trip) boots and my legs are starting to feel the strain of having heeled footwear. (Yes, I know it's a foolish thing to do. Of course, the walking from Gastown to Robson and stuff isn't helping hugely either...) The not fun part was seeing some guy in Gastown puking like there was no tomorrow on the road. >.> (Thankfully it was kitty-corner to where I was and not in the direction I was planning on going.)


Anyhow, hope all went well for everyone who took the JLPT! ^_^ Me, I think I'll hibernate tonight. (Shall see what I decide about dinner... >.> It's been raining/snowing all day, and I was quite wet after my afternoon walk even though I had an umbrella!) Oh, the bad thing about this hotel - it's right next door to a pen shop?! It wasn't open today, but will be tomorrow. I haven't bought my present to myself for NaNo yet... ^^;
