Day 1 on Day 21

I am taking my first real step to learn Japanese. I moved to Japan with my family on the 29th of February and hoped to start picking up the language being immersed. My laptop is in Japanese, all programs I use is in Japanese and I look for the familiar Kanji when riding metro. However, I have not seen many gains. My inlaws and wife speak too fast to follow, along with television shows.
I fear I will be relegated to part time work until I hit N2. There are so many jobs available that I am more than qualified for, but I do not meet the language requirements. Today, I decided to purchase Genki 1 and it's workbook along with Kanji Look and Learn and it's workbook. It arrives tomorrow from Amazon.JP and I am ready.
I will update this regularly as I make advances and discoveries.
