November 13th-17th in 2015

November 13th through 17th. I don’t really remember how most of the 13th went, which leads me to believe that nothing of significance happened. It appears, based on Myfitnesspal records, that I...

Perspective in 2015

My friend Lauren just made her Carnegie debut doing the barcarolle from Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman. And I’m an English teacher in rural Japan.

November 12th-13th in 2015

Well, let’s see, what happened yesterday (the 12th). Well, Yamasaki was a freaking hit. I love it there. The magic didn’t go over as well as hoped (with the 6th graders I botched one trick, an...

November 11th-12th in 2015

Well, on the 11th, I impressed the office with the two very simple card tricks that I’ve learned in preparation for teaching at Yamasaki today. So, that was nice. I also impressed a few Miyachu...

November 9th-11th in 2015

November 9 finished pretty dully. Eikaiwa, some form of dinner, a walk, some guitar practice. The usual. I did end up writing the basics for a song, for the first time in a long time, which fe...


Wednesday the 4th, I hurried home, then went to Plasse and 7-11 for food. I ate, quickly, donned my exercise clothes, and went to Eikaiwa. It was fun, but not of special interest. Then, I went...

October 28th-November 4th in 2015

Yesterday went off pretty well. In the course of the school day, I escaped from my desk repeatedly to take walks in various abandoned corridors. I hit 10K steps on my way home. Then, I drove t...

October 23rd through 28th in 2015

The remainder of Friday passed without any memories having formed. Yet again, due to Ebihara’s absence this time, I had no classes. She was still out with Pirate-itis. The eye infection that f...

Oct 21st through 23rd in 2015

Oct 22nd. Last night, I had two dreams that were memorable. Only one of which I now remember. Which bothers me. The first (the one I remember) happened in my living room as I slept, waiting t...

Oct 20-21st in 2015

October 20th. As a side note, it occurs to me (after having written that last entry) that I forgot to write something that occurred to me yesterday or the day before. As it turns out, Amber bro...

October 9th through 20th in 2015

Friday the ninth, I remember nothing specific happening of any interest or value. I went to the Doctor, and they decided to keep me on meds for another week. Oh, right, then, I had tea ceremony...

October 8th and 9th in 2015

Last night I didn’t go to Tennis. I felt very unwell, and thought it best to stay home. I think part of it may simply be being tired, but I also suspect that I may be fighting off a bug. There...

October 7th and 8th in 2015

I didn’t end up doing much yesterday (the 7th). Just exhausted for whatever reason. I’m sleeping better, but I don’t seem to be any less tired. Actually, I’m sleeping about as well as I normal...

October 1-7 in 2015

Well, Friday I went back to the doctor, and that was that. I got my medicine, and, so far, sleeping seems to be coming along nicely. Obviously it’s not perfect, but it’s way better than it was....

Sept 30-Oct1 in 2015

Well, I slept! Thank goodness I slept! I thought I wasn’t going to make it, but I did. Yesterday was awful, especially towards the afternoon. I felt so sick from lack of sleep that I couldn’t...

September 28th-30th in 2015

Monday continued on without nothing of note to set it apart from any other day. I believe that I skipped out on my walk for some reason or other. I didn’t really budget time for it, even though...


September 27, 2015

September 26th through 28th in 2015

Well, I did the second half of the walk on Friday. I climbed the mountain in town. Well, it’s a tall and incredibly steep hill, really, but the spiral path up takes quite some time and it’s ste...


September 24, 2015

September 16th through 25th in 2015

Nothing of much note happened on the 15th. Nothing much to report, at any rate. I walked some, I cleaned some, I didn’t get a great deal accomplished, but it wasn’t a total waste. Wednesday th...

Sept 11th-15th in 2015

After that, on the 11th (written on the 15th) I didn’t do much in school. In the end, I ended up going to the work Enkai welcome party. That was fun enough, though not nearly so fun as I’d hope...

Sept 8-11 in 2015

Yesterday didn’t go according to plan. I ended up staying at school until 6. At 4:30, I helped one of Inori Sensei’s students with her English pronunciation for a contest. I got to solve a min...

Sept 7-8 in 2015

So, what can be said for yesterday? Not a great deal. I had one class, and, after that, I got to leave early to teach the Monday eikaiwa. It was pleasant enough. They gently suggested that I ...

September 4th-7th in 2015

It’s now the 7th, and I’ve got internet, and I’ve got 5 more gigs on my phone, so I was able to post everything. That having been said, the best time to write in this thing is when I’m at work, ...

Sans Internet Writing in 2015

I felt chills. I felt chills and I still feel them. When did I last feel like this from a work of fiction? When did I last feel like this from anything? What possessed me to give up reading? ...

August 25th-Sept 4th in 2015

Well, it rained yesterday. Good heavens it rained yesterday. The river kept rising a bit. I need to drop by today and see how it’s doing. (Today is the 26th, by the way). For lunch, Sam and ...

August 20th-24th in 2015

Regarding yesterday (Thursday the 20th), I went on a long walk. I was looking for either the Nafco (which I didn’t find) or the town’s one Italian restaurant (which I also didn’t find). Barring...
