Obon Came and Went

Last week was our obon/summer vacation. Because of the current state of emergency and our company’s current restrictions, there wasn’t too much to do, except for stay home. During this time, I played two online games of D&D, did a couple of drawings, started writing a new story, and slept. I only went out to buy food.

But it wasn’t all bad. This summer has been a hot one since the rainy season ended. I’ve never tolerated the heat well, so staying under the AC has been just fine with me.

Weekend Bliss

The weekend has once again rolled around and I couldn’t be happier. Tomorrow I’m meeting some friends for D&D, hopefully followed by some karaoke. I really want to try out a new song I’ve been practicing.

An Odd Warm Spell

This morning I woke up to an unusually warm day. Today I was all over the place. I brought my coat to my first stop, but quickly found that I didn’t need it. After lunch, I dropped it off at home. Then, I grabbed a long sweater and scarf . I had been complaining about the cold. Looks like someone heard me and turned up the heat.

The official start of summer

Today the cicadas started singing the song of their people. Yesterday, there wasn’t a chirp to be heard, but this morning their cries echoed in surround sound. It’s offically summer in Japan.

Holding out for the weekend

My workweek is only half over and I’m already exhausted. I haven’t made many plans for the weekend yet, save for meeting a few friends Sunday morning. One thing I need to remember to do is buy a thank you treat for the staff at my school. It’s too hot for chocolate, so maybe some sort of light cookie?

Newer Pastures

This is my last full week of working in Mie Perfecture, for the foreseeable future. I’ll be commuting from my home in Nagoya to Mie three days next week to do crossover training with the new teacher. After that, I’ll mostly be at the office, save for a handful of assignments around Aichi.

Spontaneous

Felt the travel bug again recently, so I planned at trip to Tokyo with a friend for this weekend. I did everything on my smartphone, while on the train home from work in Mie. We plan to leave from Yokkaichi Saturday night and come back to Nagoya Monday evening.

A Season of Change

Here in Japan, March is seen as the end of the year, and April is the start of the next. School years end this month. Companies hire new employees next month. Right now, it’s a super busy and stressful time for everyone, myself included.

So, whenever I get a little downtime, I try to look at something pretty or do something fun. Now that it’s been getting warmer, there are more things to look at, and I’m a lot more willing to go outside.
