So, I recently started a new work assignment late last week. It’s a bit further away from my home, but the atmosphere amongst my colleagues is a thousand times better than my last assignment. The previous assignment had me at a certain office for four to five days a week and I found it difficult […]
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 […]
Today, I heard some interesting news. A higher up told me that I’ll be moving to new branch come April. I’ve been at my current branch since last October and the commute is really getting to me. It’s about one hour each way. Here’s to hoping for a shorter commute and a good work environment!
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 […]
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 […]
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.
This afternoon, I signed a one year contract for a new job. I can’t say much about it, other than it’s teaching. I’m hoping to use the money for Japanese lessons, which will hopefully help me pass some more tests, so I can get a really good job in the future. I can’t express, with […]
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. […]
