I have instant DVD collection!!! In just one afternoon I became the proud owner of nearly 100 dvds. Next, DVD player!!!! I like shopping here!!!
I have just finished marking the last of self-intro worksheets students had to do. The last class I taught here (I have no classes this morning and AM FLYING TO CHINA TONIGHT!!!! Not much excited:-) was yesterday and it was a class which had not yet had a class with me, despite me having been here for almost five weeks. Apparently they were worried I didn’t like them. It was actually just that I was sick last week and did not come in either day I was due to teach them.
Anyway, this is what one student wrote (keeping in mind it is a fifteen year old male student)
“My name is Hiroaki Tsujinoto. My hobbies are table tennis and fishing. I like Ms Tinney very much. Because Ms Tinney is English teacher. And she is pretty. I want to be AmberLouise Tinney”
Ms Tinney is muchly amused and flattered.
There is a Lush in Osaka – in a big,shiny,new shopping complex coveniently next to the station. I had a blissfully ‘happy’ bubble bath today.
And I can now say: I’m going to China NEXT WEEK!!!! Now that’s exciting!
Now that I’m away from all my beloved geeky friends, I find I am becoming more geeky than ever before (not hard, really) I actually have a pc with windows 98 – though admittedly, it still throws me when ppl comment how old it is! To me it’s still a new toy – albeit somewhat short on colour. I am starting to research what laptop I want to buy when I visit tokyo next year, as well as what sort of digital camera. And I am getting quite addicted to the net, especially loving following what’s happening back home for friends.
And have inadvertantly hooked up with a couple of gamers and magic players, and there are plans for a campaign. And this excites me. One of them is even going to give me cd copy of the latest ed d&d manuals. Am I discovering hitherto undiscovered ponds of geekiness in myself, or am I just pining for my friends so much that I am replicating their attributes in me? I’m guessing it’s the first reason. Maybe it’s more that I have the time and headspace here to delve into these areas which have always been placed on the backburner in my ‘real’ life. hmmm. while I’m on a geekiness thing, must learn to cut entries so people can choose to read further or not. Sorry I don’t know how yet.
