Noritake Gardens,Nagoya, Japan.
It has been super rainy this year. I know that it’s technically still the rainy season, and that the heat after it ends is probably going to be unbearable, but the grey skies reminds me too much of New York. I’m sick of all this grey.
As many of you have likely noticed, updates have not been as plentiful as usual. That is because I have been a bit busy and not so much in the mood to blog as of late. This month has been an unusual one both at work and in my personal life.
This month, I had to return to New York for a little while to take care of a family emergency. Since I am now settled in Nagoya, the journey to get home can be quite the long one. Few planes leave Nagoya airport, bound for NY, so there is a commute to/from Tokyo in addition to the long flight.
I’m hoping to update more in the near future.
This week started off on a weird note.
Last week was a student couseling week, so the majority of classes were canceled. Private lessons and special lessons were the only things going on outside of counseling, so my shifts were really light. Since my current school didn’t have me involved in the actual counselings, I had little to do besides supplying other teachers with info. For two days, I was at the office, helping with miscellaneous projects or preparing for this week. One day I was at a school as support staff.
Now this week, it’s back to business as usual, but I feel the same sort of detachment as whenever I come back from vacation. Yesterday was particularly difficult since I woke up in a very strange mood. I couldn’t put my finger on why, but I felt seriously bummed out.
Today was a bit better. My coworker went out of her way to make me laugh, which really improved my mood. I’m hoping tomorrow turns out to be a good one too.
