Almost five months have passed since I came here in September
and finally I've got a phone.
Actually I didn't need it since I hanged out with my friends and roommates.
They sent me emails or messages on Facebook
although it was troublesome for them.
So I felt sorry for them.
I felt uncomfortable only when I had language exchanges,
and tried finding for new accommodations.
Actually I spent a lot to find a new accommodation since I had to use public phones.
It costs 50 cents per 30 seconds or one minute, and whenever I inspected a new room
I had to call the same person many times.
In the end, I think I have spent way more than if I were to have used a mobile phone.

The reasons why I am having one now is that one of my flat mates went back to Korea
and he gave me his phone for free.
He bough it second hand one from someone else, but it's no problem for me.
My university is starting soon too, so I thought it's time I had one.
I chose a small company called "Hello mobile" instead of big companies like Vodaphone or Optus
Since I won' t use it very often and never use my phone to connect to the Internet,
I didn't choose CAP which is a system where we can pay a fixed amount of money
and get a lot of bonuses.

For my company, I was able to chose a prepaid plan from $10, $20, $30 and $50.
All I need is to recharge it within 3 months.
National calls cost only five cents and emails everywhere including Japan cost only 15 cents.
I don't know how to use it yet, but I will see how it goes. haha

P.S.
I wanted to buy an iphone 4 but I heard that I won't be able to use it in Japan if I buy one here,
so I gave up.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. pluck (in a newspaper)
= courage and determination
2. singlet (in a newspaper)
= a vest or similar sleeveless garment
3. petite (in a newspaper)
= (of a girl, woman or her figure) small and thin
