Training started today. I had to bike to the station for about 20 minutes then take a 1 and half hour train ride to the office in Ujiie. Today's training seemed a bit unnecessary. I didn't learn to much but we did make a few lesson plans, and I did get to meet the other ALTs. There were some fun parts but I felt so bad it was somewhat hard to enjoy it.
Lately I've still been having trouble eating here. Even foods I like are making my stomach upset. It doesn't seem to make any sense. I've progressively been feeling worse as the days have gone by. I felt like I was going to faint (never fainted before) and luckily I didn't but I probably felt the worst I've felt since I've been here today. I don't know if I'm actually sick or malnourished (by this point I probably am malnourished) or if it's a psychological problem (probably both). I'll be really angry/upset with myself if I have to quit because I can't start feeling better.
Anyways once I got back from training tonight I went searching for a rice cooker. Once I find one I hopefully will be able to make and eat some rice and start feeling better. Today I went to three stores and no dice. I had help from friends online on how to ask if they had one (Thanks!), but still I couldn't find one.
Tomorrow I'll check another store but for now I'll try to eat what I can.
