1. I've been in America for the last month. I've enjoyed the food, not working, meeting old friends and driving, but alas, tomorrow I return to Japan. My last six months in Japan have been poor and while I hope the next (and for the next few years, final) six will be better, I've braced my self...
  2. I love my kids (students that is - I am in no way a parent), I'm OK with where I'm living, and my apartment is amazingly awesome. But I went ahead and applied to a job working on English scripts at a major video game company in Shinjuku. I don't know what I'll do if I get the job (though I...
  3. i love my kids, though sakura's been poking me in the stomach every chance she's gotten since friday (up to and including work today). and other than a huge blister, playing the odaiko was great [img] [img]
  4. Last night's karaoke party (really an excuse to ask Kihara-sensei out). [img] <3 <3 <3

  6. Last weekend was the last weekend for the winter festival at Lake Towada. Went down with some friends. It was a blast. Might have a crush. It was COLD, though, and because of the wind they didn't do fireworks :( [img] [img] [img] [img] [img] [img]
  7. I will detail the interesting story of how I got it later, but Cute Cash Register Girl is now in my address book (and yes I got the address from her). Sent her a message, she sent me a cheery reply, and I sent her one later on, asking if she wants to go get coffee. She hasn't replied to that one...
  8. Woke up at 10, talked to Kaoru for an hour, showered, got dressed. Met Beau at his place in Oirase and we took our cars to the Gusto in Hachinohe. Met Yui there. She is the most beautiful girl I've ever met. She has a boyfriend sadly and I think she's looking to set me up with her friend...
  9. I have been hemming and hawing about staying in Japan another year. It's been hard living in Aomori this year. I'm not going through culture shock living in Japan, but culture shock living in the middle of nowhere. Between Atlanta and Osaka I've lived in a big city since I was 16. And it's...
