It seems I passed my first year art school exams.
Results were supposed to have been posted 19 March, after I had already returned to Japan, but I never heard from anyone. I even emailed the school office address to ask (though to be fair they were having some computer problems before I left and perhaps never recovered).
I know everyone was probably eager to leave on vacation once results were published and perhaps I was forgotten in the excitement.
Today, though, we got a message from Tsering, one of my classmates, who wrote:
"I passed in class also Jeff , he is better then me I think. He is 5th position or 4 th position, something like that."
While she may have remembered incorrectly about my rank, that I passed I feel pretty certain is an accurate recollection. And it couldn't have come at a better time. I'm off tomorrow on a new adventure. Have a peek at my companion blog for more: http://fullhenro.blogspot.com
