Those kids...

Long weekend was pretty quiet. Sadly. But everyone was tired from shenanigans the previous weekends, or had dates, or stuff... What did I do?

1) Watched films. Lots of films. Including, but not limited to, the entire Indiana Jones series, Twister, and US Marshalls. I felt American.

2) Slept.

3) Ate entirely too much junk food.

4) Attended a meeting for the upcoming AJET musical, which I feel I will regret becoming involved in.

Then it was back to work today, Tuesday. Tuesday is my least favourite day of the week. Today, I was dreading it, but it was actually not bad. Thus far anyway... Two good third grade classes, and a not-bad junior class, followed by a disastrous senior class, both in the mountains. It could have been worse. They could all have been disastrous. :) Eikiawa tonight, which I always feel pretty nonchalant about, but always enjoy. Yeah, this could have been a worse day. I like being busy!

I also got given a lot of omiyage (presents) yesterday for no apparent reason. From the vice-principal of the mountain elementary school (such a nice bloke, he is), and from one of my eikaiwa ladies, who just had a holiday in Okinawa. Sometimes these people just blow my mind with these random acts of kindness.

I also taught my eikaiwa class Einstein's Theory of Relativity last night. They didn't know it! So I feel that I have finally taught something of import to these people: EVERYONE should know Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
