Excuse my absence for the past two weeks. I should have been writing entries and then updating them at school but I didn’t think it would take so long to get internet. As it stands I still have to wait one more week for internet at home. On September 24th I should receive my modem and will once again reconnect with the world around or after that time. I have come to accept my current situation, however, so internet isn’t the biggest necessity. It will be nice to have it once again so I can upload pictures and write blog updates in my spare time.
A lot has happened in the past two weeks so I will have to update everyone in one fell swoop. I will condense it into one entry starting from the longest ago to the most recent events.
There are some other good snippets of information you might want to know before I head off to resurrect my blog in the form of a massive two week delayed entry.
In the next week I will finally get my car. I say my car because right now I have a loaner car (代車 – daisha) from the mechanic I will get the actual car from. I’m not sure why they gave me this car to use in the mean time because it’s not like I had one before. Oh well, I am not complaining one bit about this situation as I have a little more freedom from now. It will be great when I finally have my own car. Once in my possession all the glorious details, or not, of my car shall come forth like a cornucopia bearing its produce in grand splendor.
Next week I have four days off because of two holidays and two days they give us for working this Saturday and Sunday. I hope to get out and see some new places as I should have my car around that time.
Lastly, do you want to know how to become a superstar amongst the Japanese elementary students? I think there is only one thing you need to do.
Ride a unicycle and instantly become the one of the coolest ALTs in history to grace the confines of the school yard.
Ride a unicycle backwards and you double your coolness factor.
The teachers just might love you for being such a favorite with the kids as well.
You win the hearts of the kids, teachers, and school.
You enjoy your fame.
They won’t forget your name.
