Check out E. Kam.'s Blog from wonderful Houston, Texas and the University of Houston campus (where I will be attending law school beginning in August). I can't wait to see Eva and my old friends again. Blog everyday Eva and post lots of pictures so we know what is going on in living color. As you can see, Eva's pictures from her dorm are just amazing. I stole these from her Blog for everyone to see. Look at the texture and the sky.
When experienced ALTs tell you this, you better listen to them. Right now I have nothing to do (specifically) but come to school and 'sit' until 4 o'clock rolls around. This drains you!! However, I won't complain because (1) I'm getting paid for it (2) it does give me plenty of time to make some well thought out lesson plans (3) I get free Internet access (4) I'm doing a lot of reading (US history and stuff on law school) and (5) I'm in Japan! Blogging has become one of my hobbies -- and it's a great way to pass the time. So, happy reading!
Last night I went on a picnic in Omura park with the rest of the new JETs in Omura. We had a great time and the park is so gorgeous! We were literally sitting 30 feet from a castle -- pictures to come soon. There are plans to go to the beer garden tomorrow night for dinner and Omura's water park / kaiten zushi afterward on Saturday. I'm especially looking forward to the "sushi train" (as Kai calls it) -- I've heard a lot of good things about it! The way it works is there is a conveyor belt that has different plates of sushi (usually 2 pieces) on it and you take what you want. The best part about this one is that all of them are 100 yen plates. In the States you'll pay 2-3 dollars for something like this during a Happy Hour. Woohoo!! 楽しみ！
I should have Internet access in my apartment in less than a week! If you're interested, my Dad likes to blog more than I do -- and he likes to brag about me. =) You can see one of his many pages here. Much love <3
