after doing my best to teach sixth graders second and third period (i couldn't call out on them, it's their last english class of the year! the kids were really good though, and behaved exceptionally well because i was sick), i was allowed to excuse myself and go to the doctor. this was my first visit to the doctor in Japan, but i found Dr. Fujigawa to be very pleasant and his english wasn't too bad either. he said it was pretty mild bronchitis, the wheezing in my lungs wasn't too bad thankfully. they gave me some sort of shot, and a script for antibiotics, which is the reason i went to the doctor.
i got to come home after that, watched bits of a samurai movie and took a long nap. probably going to go to bed again a little while after making this post. if i still feel lousy tomorrow, i think i will ask to go home after i finish the classes i have to teach (i don't wanna miss out on the obata shogakko 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders!).
the year is fast approaching an end...i hope i'll get over this quickly enough to enjoy every minute!
