back from the big house  
i've been at the Yashiro orientation center for the last 4 days, aka Yashiro prison, for another set of JET orientaions. the food was awful, the beds were awful, the morning wake up calls were awful, and most of the seminars were awful too. i did meet some cool people in my area though, so that was good, and i did get a little bit of new and helpful information. but all day today i was dying to get back home, as short a time as it's been my home because....

my yahoo bb modem came! i'm online i'm online i'm online! yes!

coming back today, i also finally got my alien registration card (the actual plastic with my name and all) and then was able to set up my bank account.

such an exciting day!

tomorrow there's supposed to be a beer garden in kobe, but with yet another typhoon coming, it's bound to be a very rainy day, so i think i'll skip it. i'll probably practice driving and sit on the internet all day instead. drop me a line any time, i'll be here!
Mood: online!
Music: astor piazzolla

Hey!! Sounds like things are getting settled ... when do you start teaching?
I don't start until September 7th, but I'll be updating lots so we can keep each other entertained!! I've been killing myself trying to get my classroom in order so I'll try to figure out how to post pictures once it's all set-up and pretty.

Take care, we think of you often!! :)

yeah, day by day, things are sorting out. i'll start teaching on September first, so i'm starting to plan out my introduction lesson (telling/showing the kids where i come from, my family and friends, etc). I'm sure everything will be great by the time you start, I can't wait to see the pictures.

You folks take care too! much love to you both!

7:59pm! That's like 11 hours from now! You're in the future! So tell me then, does anything exciting happen today that I can place a bet on or anything?
