Cherry Blossoms

It seemed like this year’s cherry blossom season was especially short. The delicate white and pink petals have already been mostly replaced by green leaves in many places.

First Week– Done!

Finished my first week of working in Gifu Prefecture.

Tomorrow I have some plans to go to a cherry blossom festival with some coworkers. Then, Monday, I’ll meet some friends to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday. Somewhere in there I need to remember to do my laundry…

April Changes

So, April is finally here. With it comes an array of changes. One of which relates to my job.

I’ve been reassigned to Gifu prefecture after 6 long months of working in Toyohashi City. No more 2+ hours of commuting!

Hopefully that means that I’ll have more time and energy to put towards my hobbies and this blog. Fingers crossed, everyone.

Flowers at Lunch

This month has been a trying one. It’s the middle of the busy season in Japan, so we’ve been running around like chickens without heads.

Today was my first slower day all month, since two of my lessons got canceled. It’s also my last week at my current assignment, so I wad given a little extra time to put things in order for the incoming staff.

That being said, I was actually able to go out and enjoy my lunch this afternoon. Mostly, I’ve been popping out to the nearest convenience store and eating lunch at my desk.

The weather was rather nice, if a bit windy. My lunch was scheduled to start at four, so it also wasn’t super crowded.

After lunch, I took a stroll around the train station and shopping centre where my job is located. It has a lovely courtyard where there are a ton of flowers, fountains, and illuminated displays in the winter.

That is where I snapped these pictures. I have no idea as to what kind of flowers these are, but I thought they were pretty. They also came in an aray of colors, as you can tell.

I’m looking forward to my next assignment, though I will miss seeing these flowers.

Tiny White Flowers

This week has been a difficult one for a wide array of reasons. So, instead of going straight into work this morning, I decided to have a snack outside the train station.

My little break was all of ten minutes, but it helped a bit. I’m not entirely sure why, but I’ve been feeling especially annoyed and agressive since Tuesday.

That said, tomorrow evening can’t come fast enough. I have plans to play D&D with the guys Sunday and an extra day off on Thursday (National Holiday). I really hope I’m all sorted out by Tueday.
