Today I taught at Ueno, 4th grade, semi-weird lesson plan about Christmas. I wore my contacts today. Alot of kids were asking "Why aren't you wearing glasses", I explained I was wearing contacts.. some didn't know what contacts were. Some said 「すごいかっこい」Ｏｒ すげえかっけ！Which means super cool/super good looking. Which I guess is good they thought I was cool. Some were talking about how my eyes were green, they didn't believe it. After school I talked with some teachers about Christmas, they were generally interested. In Japan they make snowmen out of 2 big snowballs, not 3. They also usually put a bucket on its head instead of a hat.
I've started up my kanji study again... I hope it lasts this time. I'm definitely not going to make my end of the year deadline, but thats ok. I learned alot of grammar and finished my Genki I book. WHY ARE YOU KEEPING ME FROM LEARNING... KANJI!!! WHY!!!! The first step is the biggest, in fact its 2042 steps in one.
Tomorrow I might interview some of my co-workers in Japanese. I was going to do it today but I wussed out. Probably because the woman I was going to ask is cute hah. Also I feel like a baby when I speak Japanese, its aweful. All the teachers are so freekin busy all the time. Even on weekends, its like impossible to do anything.
Tomorrow's Friday. What am I doing this weekend?
I'm feeling melancholy, but don't know why. I think I'm feeling lonely. I think when I sit around and don't do much or when I get bored I get lonely. I need to keep busy.
