Day 1285 ( Jamaipanese going Going Home / )
Sunday, September 25, 2011
My blogger friend is heading back to Jamaica today, so I followed him to the station. We were running late but luckily he caught the train to the airport just on time. That was pretty much my excitement for the day. The coming days are going to be a bit boring, just work and more work.

My plastic retainers are slowly cracking up. So I queried the price for building a new set in Yokohama, and it cost like 50,000 yen (US 470). Heck No!!!! So I asked my orthodontist back in Okayama and he said it will cost only 10,000 yen ( US 70). So I will ask them to build a new one.
Day 1288 ( Jewel thief gets 10 years in prison )

Nothing special happened today. Just a normal to work and back day.

Day 1289 ( Meetings Meetings )
Thursday, September 29, 2011
I was exhausted after work today but I still had a meeting with my company. I was actually falling asleep on the train while heading to the meeting. The good thing is that these meetings are quite informative and its always good to see other foreigners around. Meetings are once a month and we are all tired before and after the meetings.
Back in Okayama we had meetings only once every 3 or 4 months. Yeah the city is crazy busy.
We did a brief speed date kind of thing, where each teacher would share for 3 minutes, an activity to teach the kids. Then we would have to change partners and do the same thing.

Today they scrapped one of the classes at my main school, because of Sports Day practice. I am almost never informed when my classes are scrapped or changed at this school. Actually, if this happens, I should report it to my company but for the sake of peace with everyone, I let it slide. It doesn't really inconvenience me in any way, except that I just need to know what is going on.
However, what I don't like is when the teachers come to me at 3:25 to plan for the next lesson, while fully knowing I should leave at 3:30. This happened today, and I ended up leaving at around 3:45. I especially don't like leaving late at this school because they don't want me to leave early even if no one wants to plan anything with me. The other schools allow me to leave early, once I'm through planning with the teachers for the next lesson.
The principal at this school seem very interested in my classes. But instead of him stopping and looking, he walks by, sticks his head in, smiles then continue walking.
