Day 483 { Updated Gaikokujin Card / Japanese kids Overworked }



Updated Gaikokujin Card
I got an email from my company saying that I need to go and renew my foreigner card. The card that all foreigners need to have with them just in case a police decide to randomly stop and question you...Mine was expired from March 20, 2009, and I didn't even noticed.... LOL
So I made sure to hurry up and go renew it. Today, for the first time in I don't know how long, I actually went to bed at about 8:30 pm. and I slept all the way through to about 7 am the next morning.


Japanese kids Overworked

More than half of elementary, junior high and high school students think their lives are "hectic" and would like to sleep more, according to a survey by an educational research institute.

The survey, conducted in November by the Tokyo-based Benesse Educational Research & Development Center, found that 49 percent of elementary school students, 59 percent of junior high students and 64 percent of high school students said they lead hectic lives. The number of students polled was not provided.

The survey also showed that 52 percent of the students in elementary school, 68 percent in junior high school and 71 percent in high school said they tire easily.

The average number of sleeping hours was eight hours and 36 minutes for fifth-graders but grew less the older the student, standing at six hours and 32 minutes for students in their second year of high school.

The poll found that fifth-graders spend about two minutes a day on cell phones, while high school juniors spend about 76 minutes on their mobile. http://search.japantimes.co.jp/mail/nn20090715f5.html
