Azaleas on a Sunny Day

Yesterday was my day off, so I tried getting a bunch of errands done. I woke up a bit later than I indended, so I skipped making breakfast, and bought a little something from my local donburi shop around the corner. I had a ¥500 off coupon, so I spent under ¥200 for meal of rice, fish, and egg.

After that, I stopped off at the post office to mail out some packages that I had been putting off for forever. I think I may have attached the wrong content lables (same contentd but different amounts). I also had a short chat with the clerk about how much foreigners like Japanese sweets.

Then I went to the supermarket, where there was a sale on grapes, and the neighbouring clothing shop to look for tee shirts. I didn’t find what I was looking for, unfortunately.

After dropping my groceries off at home, I went into the city for some shopping and to convert some money for my upcoming visit to the States. I bought some gluten free bread (I have a wheat allergy), soap, and a bithday card for my mom. 

Once I had what I needed, I did an hour of karaoke. Since I haven’t been practicing as much since I was sick in February, my voice sounded awful. I couldn’t hold any long notes to save my life.

I finished off the day with an extra large salad, some youtube, and a little gaming. I can’t wait for my next day off.


A New(ish) Start

I started a new assignment this week and so far, it’s been going pretty well. I was at my last school for about five and a half months, and truth be told, things were becoming a bit strained. 

My new school is much more relaxed, though a bit further away. It’s also located in a bit outdoor mall, which is nice. I’ll be teaching here until Golden Week. After that, it’s anyone’s guess.
