The past week has been awesome for retaining energy and getting rid of stress. I’ve been focusing on getting things sorted out and getting back into hobbies that were neglected.
Today was my first day of my part-time job. It’s only for two weeks, but it pays pretty well and might be a stepping stone to something else.
I feel better than I have in ages.
Today is my last day teaching classes, while tomorrow will be my last day working at Anjo school. I can hardly believe it. In September of last year, I started working there part-time. In April, I was re-assigned to Nagoya HQ, but I returned in mid-May.
Since then, I have been working exclusively in Anjo. Now, a new teacher is here and I am supposed to teach her my entire job in a span of about 18 hours.
I have also had to tell my students that they were switching teachers again, some of which are very unhappy. Never have I thought myself much of a teacher, but some of the people I have met are really lovely.
I will be moving out of my apartment in Anjo in about 37.5 hours. In that time, I still need to finish packing, finish cleaning, get the key from the Leopalace office in Nagoya, call the gas company, run a few personal errands, order new furnature, and try to find a couple of hours of sleep. Wish me luck.
Recently I’ve been rather lazy. I know I really shouldn’t be doing this, especially since I’m getting ready for a big move and a job hunt, but I’ve been eating out more than usual. This is a pub next to my workplace, which makes good food for an affordable price (especially if you go in the afternoon). I’ve been in so often that I’ve gotten a little friendly with the waitresses and the chef. Today, he was super kind and gave me a little extra fish with my order for free. I will really miss this particular shop once I’m back in Nagoya.
Is there anyone who enjoys a pocket full of change? Something tells me the answer is no. Whenever I have a large amount of change, I either try to use it up while shopping (ie giving the cashier ¥1042 on a ¥492 purchase) or dump it into the ATM. ¥5 coins are the worst though, since no one wants them, save shrines.
I went to a fireworks show in Gamagori with some friends last weekend. It was terribly hot, but the show was definitely worth it.
Today is the first day in a very long time where I haven’t needed to be somewhere by sometime for some reason. I’m honestly out of sorts because of it. I don’t need to go to work today. I’m used to working seven days a week. I don’t need to go to an event of some sort. I have NOTHING planned… and it’s that lack of a plan that confuses me. I don’t know if I like this…
