Hello everyone, I know I know... It has been a while. 3 reasons for that:

1. I'm busy with my work
2. I couldn't log into my account, because of the new google account (google is taking over the world)
3. well... I should not find to many excuses but just post so now and then.

Okay, now back to what's going on in my life.

Since half June I started teaching at my new Elementary schools. This time I have 4 schools, and all of them are (again) in Kita-ku (north of Kobe). The schools are alright, and I have no problem with any of them. I'm also teaching at the smallest elementary school in Kobe, a school with only 19 students in total... a lot isn't.

Since 3 weeks ago I also started teaching at a Saturday class for "Kinder kids", the same company where my wife is working for, and I must say that it's a whole difference from teaching at elementary school; age (3-5 against 7-12), activities (singing, dancing, and phonics against keyword games, and bingo games), English level (Eigo ha wakarimasen *I don&t understand English* against "can I have ..." singing "incredible iguana"). It's fun to do, but because it's been a while it is a little bit stress ful for me.

Working 6 days a week isn't that bad, but I just have to get used to it.

I also want to thank everyone for their comments on our wedding party. It really was the best day off my life, and I do realize so now and then how much I miss my parents so now and then. It feels lonely here in Japan so now and then, even though I have my sweet wife *who really takes care of me a lot*, finding friends isn;t that easy.

Well, from the 19th of July I will be having another 6 weeks off (I know, it's also stress full), and I hope to find a summer job or a new job at that time. Wish me luck.

P.S. How's life in Docomo?
