Translation and Real Life in Japan

So I'm back once again with an update on life in Japan working on the JET Program.

In a nutshell, I have been busy.  I've also been sick the past few days with a cold.  I had to wear a face mask all day today at work, and it sucked.  It sucked a lot.

But I've been busy with random life things since September.  All of my schools had their sports days, so I went to all of those.  There have been several Yamanashi events like the Paul Rusch Festival that happened here last month as well as the Halloween pub quiz we had.  My JTE has finally given me a smidgen more responsbility by having me write three questions for the students to answer as a warm up to class.  It's kind of fun thinking of crazy and random questions for them.  It's also a challenge because I have to think of different questions every day I'm at the junior high.

On the bright side, I'm getting more involved with the kids and they've been talking to me more.  My elementary school kids love me a ridiculous amount.  I'm kind of excited for the 6th graders to move up to junior high next year.  They'll be so tiny and adorable in their school uniforms.

Unfortunately, life has not given me much time for translation.  So the progress on finishing Algernon ni Hanabata wo has stalled for a bit.  I finished episode 8 and got that released, but I haven't finished the last two episodes yet.  I feel like I need to sit down and push through them.

I'm actually really glad I didn't pick up a fall drama.  I definitely wouldn't have had time.  I couldn't make it a priority right now.  Once the winter dramas start being announced, I'll take a look at them and see if anything strikes my fancy.  But first, I've got to finish Algernon.  By the end of this month for sure.  It's been way too long.

So that's a bit of an update.  I'll write more later.  I haven't even eat dinner yet.

Ja ne!
