Today was my first day back to work, but I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night. My sleep schedule got messed up due to staying up late, then sleeping in, during my vacation. Since it was too hot to go anywhere, I adopted a more nocturnal lifestyle. That lifestyle doesn’t exactly match well with my work schedule…
It’s continued to be extremely hot here in Nagoya. So much so, I spent almost all of my Summer Break in my room. With the exception of going to the Aquarium with V, I spent my waking hours watching DVDs or playing video games.
Any time spent outdoors (again save for the aquarium) has been after 6 or 7 pm. Even then it’s been pretty hot and muggy. Some nights, it was a trip to the nearest convenience store, while others was to the video shop.
Work starts again on Thursday, though this week will only be a three day one.
It’s kind of funny though: I looked forward to spending time outdoors this summer for the entirety of the winter and spring.
Tomorrow summer vacation starts. I’m really looking forward to sleeping late and doing nothing. It’s going to be fantastic!
I had a sudden assignment in Kuwana today. The information about my lessons was given to me a little after I arrived, so I was given a little time to prepare. I headed out around one to buy my ticket and catch the train.
It’s been too hot to do much during the day so I went out for a little bit last night.
Not many people were our and most places were closed.
Still, it was nice to get out of the house for a bit.
V and I tried a new karaoke place recently. It was a horror themed shop, where we could wear halloween costumes on loan from the shop if we so wanted to. The rooms and hallways were covered in decorations and the staff spoke like villians from those cheesy 1950s era horror movies. Next to each elevator, was one of these swords.
In case of emergency, break glass?
While out with my friend V, afyer work, I had to use the facilites at a local park. This place was a bit country, so there was no end to the lovely creepy crawlies taking up residence there. One such citizen was Lou, who was chilling opposite the Japanese style squat toilet. Lou kept guard while I did my business, and later hopped further up the wall, when I came closer to give my thanks.
