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...

March 23rd to April 3rd in 2016

Eikaiwa on the 23rd does not stand out as having been anything significant or important. I’m sure it was, however, entertaining. The 24th saw me attend tea ceremony. I did not, however, end up ...

March 1st through 23th in 2016

Editor’s note: This entry was begun and abandoned incomplete several times, so the tenses change a lot, and very weirdly. Please overlook. Well, the day was as dull as anticipated. The first, ...

February 25th to March 1st in 2016

(Note: Due to a confusion of files, this has some overlap and issues) Well, it’s now March 1st, so, let’s recap what’s happened. On the 24th, I went to Kukino. I came back home feeling awful an...

February 24th and 25th in 2016

February 24th and 25th I feel like February 24th is somehow a big deal. Maybe it’s Niki’s birthday? I don’t remember. Well, oh well. Nothing to do about it now. So, yesterday didn’t go acco...

February 23rd and 24th in 2016

The rest of the school day of the 23rd went about as I expected. A few notebooks, a few test questions, but nothing much of note. I got some more recorded of The Wizard of Oz. Simona is saying...

February 17th through 23rd in 2016

I have no memory of anything that happened of note on Wednesday the 17th. Likely nothing of not happened. February 18th was a pretty okay day. I went with Sam to Shibi elementary. It was a pre...

February 16th and 17th in 2016

Well, yesterday ended up going pretty well. I got all of my flash cards studied, more or less. I gave myself a “review tomorrow” pass on more than I should have, but if I get it wrong too many ...

February 9th to 16th in 2016

Well, it seems that I’ve been away from this far too long. On the 9th, I know that I wasn’t feeling well. I missed part of tea ceremony. I showed up, everything hurt, and I went home. It was j...

February 8th and 9th in 2016

Yesterday was my last day at Tomarino. I spent time with the two girls in 6th grade, and we went over their daily greetings for middle school. I can see why Matsumoto is so critical of the smal...

February 4th through 8th in 2016

I don’t remember much of what happened on Thursday. I didn’t exercise, and I don’t think that I got much sleep. Friday was another rather dull day. I had one class with Matsumoto Sensei. I go...

February 2nd and 3rd in 2016

Well, I got through the day. I, rather boldly, left work two whole minutes early so that I’d have time to rush into my house, change clothes, and go on my walk/job. I made it in quite good time...


Well, the nomikai on Friday was a rousing success. I had a great time. The party was fun. Found out that Matsumoto is either divorced or separated from her husband (I love when I’m let in on g...
