I'm also going to be doing my JLPT exam at Christmas time! Exciting
I have obon off ( A holiday for morning and remembering your family, I think C: ) and so I have a few days to actually draw and catch up.
I've got parents observation this month too so its going to be a bit more hard work than usual, however after that I should
be able to start fitting more things in my days than just working.
I really like Japan, I had a meeting yesterday and it was so upbeat and fun, the work can be hard and tiring, its not a "sit in front of a computer" tiring, its a "omg I've been running around for hours encouraging kids to scream and shout and dance" etc, which, makes my lessons hilarious but exhausting as hell.
Still, I've met some really nice mothers who gave me food and are really sweet and kind, summer school was hilariously fun, and because it was the same 3 lessons for different schools I just got to have fun and do no prep, which is quite relaxing!
So yes, I need to do some drawing, buut right now there is no food in my house so I better buy some food before I get the evil shakes!
