Today at school the teachers were laughing at the principal, because he called in
drunk sick… twice… one hour apart saying the exact same thing to the same person. I was supposed to have 3 solo classes today, but there were no students due to INFRUENZA (Godzilla’s second cousin).
All the expats around me seem to be entering the “I hate everything about this place” phase of living in Japan. They have valid points, and I can feel their frustration, but… I dunno, I think I’m stuck in the “Turning Japanese I think I’m…” phase. Nothing has been getting to me at all. I guess my mind is elsewhere.
Like hobbies! New hobbies: swimming and salsa piano. 2/3 clave is getting into my bones and I’m swallowing much less water and covering much more water than 2 weeks ago.
I cooked with wuxiang fen (anise, cinnamon, clove, fennel, and 花椒) today, and my house smells so good. Yesterday it was pumpkin bread.
