The last week has been pretty much as ordinary as it gets here.
I have to explain how obsessed I am with purikura. There are no words. In case I havent explained them properly, you go in the booth with your friends, you put in 100 yen each, you make awesome poses, the machine takes pictuers of you, you go out of the booth and you write/draw/put pictures onto your photos, and then you cut out the photos and stick them into your purikura book. Then you do it all again. You can trade purikuras with people, you can have themed purikuras and you can even use them to stick tissue paper together when you cut yourself- (right Andy?) anyways they are awesome (and versatile) and Japan would not be the same without them.
This week Michael and I bought a playstation, which is sitting on my floor next to my newly acquired TV, and it is awesome. We have some cool games, I bought a karaoke game (they dont have singstar here...WHAT??) and then I figured out I need to buy some mics. Weird. Anyway, send chocolate!!
Due to people randomly calling my phone and wanting to learn English, and me having to speak Japanese on the phone, (all due to the Student Centre giving out my phone number) I have decided to opt out of individual teaching and teach one free class on a Wednesday night in my apartment. This will commence from tonight, and I dont think many people will come but I guess as word gets out, it will probably grow too big for my apartment and then I will have problems. My motto here in Japan, and everywhere really, is .....I`ll deal with that later....anyway it should be fun.
Right now I am headed home to get something to eat (the cafeteria has finally taken its toll on me) and try to clean my house, before my next class which is in an hour and a half. Then I am playing basketball with some friends before our judo class to which I will arrive late and bright red from my skyrocketing haemoglobin levels. Ah, exercise.
Anyways, after judo I will bike home at top speed and my bike chain will come off. Twice. On the way. I will teach english for an hour or two and then, as I do on so many nights, I will meet Andy at some mini stop for icecream. Its all her fault, I swear!
I will think about learning kanji. Then I will go to bed.
