Back to work today. I’m not really in the mood to write much so I’ll keep it short. Elementary school kids had discipline problems and the teacher nearly dragged out out of the classroom and made another bow and apologize to me. Sky and mountains were truly gorgeous today. However, the rainy weather persisted far longer than we’d hoped and we couldn’t see any meteors tonight. Julie came over to grab dinner–it was going to be a small group, but it ended up just being us two, and we just hung out here for a while and she just left.
Oh, the biggest piece of news: my cholesterol is NORMAL. It’s exactly the same as it was 5 years ago! (Still high, but not by Japanese standards, at least, and not at all alarming by American standards, either.) I have no idea how that’s possible, but it was a very, very relieving piece of news.
I’m also feeling really foolish about something, possibly irrationally so. Jordan’s going to Tokyo tomorrow to accept a very major award on behalf of the Tokushima JETs from Crown Prince Naruhito himself. I excitedly posted about it publicly to our forum, not realizing that the other AJET folks were waiting for Jordan himself to make the post, so then I felt bad about that. I then found out that it turns out that Jordan isn’t completely clear on what this award is for, but I thought he was clear, so I may have misled everyone into thinking this is a bigger award than it actually is. I don’t know if it’d make things better or worse if I somehow edited/deleted the public thread I’d posted about this. I feel really stupid and pretty embarrassed right now.
At least it’s exactly a month till I leave for my trip home. That’s kind of cool.
Okay, that’s all for today.
