So very sorry in 2016

Sorry for lack of entries. Life has been insanity. Sadly, I’ve forgotten a lot that has happened, but I’ll write about what I can soon. Hopefully I’ll have time to kill on the plane.


The night of the 12th was fine. I had tea ceremony and it went pretty well. I didn’t do as well as I expected in some areas, I did better in others. Little by little, I’m getting better, and t...


Friday the 8th passed without any significant developments. The biggest news came out of Kitchen Inoue: One of the great barriers that I find for weight loss is the reality that eating out is hi...


Yamasaki was fun, but, then again, Yamasaki is almost always fun. I had a class with the 3rd graders. I think maybe it was my first class with them because I don’t remember having taught 7 kids...


I have no recollection of the events of June 22nd after my entry. However, upon reflection, I got a message on Line that night and needed to make up a costume, put it on, and show pictures to my...


The remainder of the 21st at Miyachu was rather uneventful. I was asked to do the last 15 minutes of Inori Sensei’s 4th period, but I totally forgot. I felt terrible for that. I ate lunch in t...


June 14th through 21st Sick and Tired Tuesday afternoon, I went to the ear doctor who cleaned out my ear. It was not pleasant, but the result was worth it. It still doesn’t feel 100%. Mostly, ...


I am fairly certain that the 9th happened as evidenced by the fact that I wrote about it yesterday and I am live today. That being the case, though, I have remarkably little to say about it. As ...


Yamasaki went well on the 7th. There was nothing especially interesting or terrible about it. It wasn’t as great as it was before the old seniors graduated, but, that’s life. At lunch, I was k...


It was a dull day at Miyachu that passed relatively quickly. I had two classes with Inori which consisted of me showing up ten minutes late (as per her instructions), waiting ten minutes to do m...


Writing this, on the 6th, I have no distinct memories of anything of note happening on the second after the post was completed. It was a Thursday, and I had nothing to do. Likely I cleaned a bi...


Yesterday was a full mess. I don’t know it was due to the extra classes, the liter of coffee I’d had in the morning, the poor sleep, or what. However, I was in a poor state all day. Still, eve...


The day proceeded in a dull fashion. However, Tateishi Sensei returned, and, with his return, I had two additional classes. That was the rough sum of events. Lunch with 3-2 was surprisingly pl...


I miss the sensation of the cigarette holder in my mouth. I miss the feel of the filter as I squeeze it into shape for insertion. I miss trying to get the cellophane off of the packs in one big...


On the 27th, I ended up requesting medical leave to go to a chiropractor. It was granted. Sadly, the chiropractors in Japan are . . . gentle. Rather than the ripping and tearing and popping, t...


I had three classes with Ebihara Sensei on the 25th, something which almost never happens. I was also physically present for all of two of them, something even rarer. I had written thirty past ...


May 24th was pretty dull. I had only one class all day, with Tateishi Sensei, and even in that I wasn’t particularly involved. The remainder of the day was primarily spent walking the school, o...


Friday the 20th I went to my voice teacher’s house for a rehearsal. It went well, though my throat was hurting a lot. It limited my singing ability. If anything, this is motivation to quit smo...

Focus in 2016

On Saturday night, I went on the Firefly Boats on the Sendai river in Yamasaki. Obviously it was beautiful and magical and wonderful, but, what really struck me, and struck me hard, was how litt...


On April 25th, I had my first class at Rusui. It was once Sam’s school, but now it’s mine. I don’t recollect the specifics, but I rather enjoyed it as I recall. The days prior, don’t stand out...

Placeholder in 2016

An entry is long overdue, however, I don’t have a schedule handy to remember which schools I was at, meaning that I don’t really have the main time marker for what I do with my life. I should fi...


Everything is wet. Everything is soaking wet. It’s raining, it’s humid, I never dried from the shower, and I just did part of my indoor walk. I’m literally dripping. Welcome to spring in East...


I have no memory of anything of note happening on the 7th after completing the entry. The 8th was another dull BOE day. I have no memory of anything of note happening. Overeating and non-exerc...


The party at Masaaki’s house, on the 5th, was very fun. Much better than I’d anticipated. Sadly, I got there late and took some guff for it. We had tons of food. I brought two bottles of Lamb...

April 4th and 5th in 2016

So, yesterday, the fourth, I wrote an entry that I mislabeled as ending on the third. That having been said, so little happened that it’s not worth altering. After arriving at the BOE at 8:30, I...
