This morning I had to get up super early to catch a 9:20 bullet train. I’ll be spending all of .gv in Tokyo on business, so I had to pack over the weekend and get things ready last night after work. If all goes well, I’ll be back in Aichi come October.
A manhole cover in Komaki City. This month, I’ve been helping at bit at a school there. Everyone’s been incredibly nice and the area is a couple of degrees cooler than Nagoya.
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…
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?
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.
This week is both going very quickly and incredibly slow. I’ve been in the office most of the week, doing computer work. My schedule has also been irregular, with Thursday being an eleven to eight shift, and today being a nine to six one. Well, there’s only one more day before my weekend.
Today I started my new work contract. I’m back to the forty odd hour workweek and business trips. That said, it’s time to buy some new suits and a pair of more comfortable shoes.
