Alas, starting today, the second semester of the school year officially starts in Gonohe. Between adventuring, English camp, adult night classes, and general senpai duties, I count on one hand the number of nights I slept for a full 8 hours.
My first day back on the job went pretty much like this…
Me: *eyes burning with a look my JTE calls the ALT-is-so-ready-to-teach-English*
JTE: Ahaha, BEFORE YOU GET TOO EXCITED… It’s only the new semester ceremony.
Me: But I was so ready…
JTE: Don’t worry you have speech competition at 5pm!
And that was it until 5pm. I mean, it was a riveting adventure with handy kanji dictionary in hand and a whole day of, well, sitting and not much else. Alas, those days of long yakuba days are gone, though. Looking at my new schedule, a minefield of kindergartens and nursery school centers, I have a total of maybe three days in the entire semester (that are not public holidays) where I will be sitting bemoaning my lack of work.
Edit: If you notice that posts are only half complete… that means I accidentally published instead of saving my drafts because I fail with this new WordPress format.
