Two Good Things From Overtime...

"I was not a pencil yesterday"
and, slightly better,
"The game watched TV at 2."

Not the best, but pretty good, all in all.

2009.05.30 + 1 more time

So, my computer's memory is basically all filled up. ...and so is my external hard drive. I had to go into town and buy another external hard drive. It's a sexy little guy...with 1TB of space. It's sexy and reminds me of a PS somehow. My other one reminds me of Gamecube. Why do my external hard drives remind me so much of gaming platforms? Oh well.

I also got a little eraser thing called Slendy. It's very slendy, indeed. It looks a little less like a utility cutter than the other ones did. Now I should be able to erase small things with ti...which I need.

Does it make me a jerk 'cause I don't like sleepovers? I just don't. It never works out well for anybody involved. It's epic failure on many levels.

2009.05.28-29 - an overview

No boxercise.
Assigned to an After School Program for adults about English Tests.
Bread eaten.
Low levels of actual productivity.

And now, on Saturday, it's raining, I cleaned, I drew (very little), and updated my calendar. Cooked too. Listening to Ice Ice Baby because I can't stop listening to a car crash.


Hoho, today probably won’t be that good of a day. I forgot the day’s teaching schedule at home, and I’m already spacing out at 8.25 in the morning. I also have the teacher who I have an irrational hatred of today. If it wasn’t for that fact that leaving would mess up everyone’s day here, I’d so totally tell them I’m not feeling well and go home. But, I can’t do that to them. I really want to though. In all honesty, except for the one teacher who I have irrational hatred for, elementary school isn’t so bad…I’m just not quite over my burn-out from it. The kids are real cuties, and aren’t any worse (or better) than the first years. It’s just the burn-out, man, the burn-out. I don't think I’d have any problems going to Yangiu E.S., but Nishinakada E.S. is a small one to me. It’s so totally burn-out…and that one teacher. Oh well. First period is going to be interesting. Luckily I did remember to make the flash card things.
First period went relatively well. The missing plan on my part didn’t seem to hinder the lesson much. Hopefully the next couple of lessons will be okay…especially since there’s only 3 left. I wonder if I can get back in time for lessons with my middle school…? I have been lately, but that doesn’t mean that I will be able to now.
My irrational hatred burns unevenly. Sometimes I’m completely fine with them, other times just hearing their voice alone sets me off. Oh, it is problematic, but hopefully it’ll simmer down. I think it will.
Apparently there will be a fire drill/emergency drill thing today. We’ll see how that goes. ...It wasn’t too awful. Actually, they just spoke over the intercom. Now I know. If ever in an emergency situation, go into the nearest classroom. Gotcha. But, just so you know, if I’m in the bathroom, I’m finishing first. Nobody likes emergency situations with a full bladder.
I think I have irrational hatred for more than one teacher. Oh Hell.
Third period was okay. Not much to report. Irrational hatred is spread between 2 teachers so it has less depth…which is kinda good.
Elementary school wasn’t too bad. I got back to middle school during 5th period so I couldn’t go to ti, but I did go to 6th. I also thought that the front gate was locked and asked a teacher to open the gate. He said that it wasn’t locked, and I said that I thought that it was…it wasn’t. Hoho, that was good times. It’s a good thing I’ve learned to laugh at myself.

They be bringing God to the doors here...

So, a few days/a week or so ago (I can't really remember 'cause it wasn't that important to me), some Jehovah's witnesses came to my door. I played ignorant of the Japanesez. It seemed to work because they left. But, BUT, they came back today...with an English speaker.

Now I have a date with them in two weeks on a Wednesday. {{p´Д`q}}

I actually wrote an update for today on'll be posted eventually.

This means that I have to clean my apartment. That makes me sad. Rather so.

2009.05.26 - the day

Not much happened at all, actually. There were classes and whatnot. No real shenanigans...on anybodies part. Okay, I did steal a students brush and give it to a couple of first years who were running laps...and they didn't come back. Oops.
Otherwise, I just came home and worked on a couple of commissions and then passed out from lack of sleep.
The 27th is elementary school. Let's hope I make it through. ...especially since I have no bloody idea what we are doing. I should read the schedule...

It's only the beginning of Tuesday.
I'm not sure I'm going to make it.

But, man, Fighting was awesome last night. I've only been back for one lesson, but I feel better already. I better go on Thursday. I'd better.

Today was an interesting day.
I was about 2 inches away from being grabbed by a male student.
And there's a third year boy with strange hair who threatened to kill me.

Needless to say, I laughed at both of them and can't wait for Monday. Neither one of them is going to do anything, and we both know that. It's days like these that make me glad I didn't skip out on work.

Ya'ever notice...

that May spells out Yam in the mirror? I think it's the only month that spells something backwards.

The second years are on their school trip, and an English teacher got married and has the week off. That means, at most, I'm left with 3 teachers. I think one is on the trip, and one never uses me.
So, in summary...I have darn near nothing to do this week. Let's see how this works out.

ps: Bali posts ARE coming...just slowly...very.

Back from Bali

It feels strange and somehow nice to be back home.

More of an update later.
