School is out

Summer holiday has officially started. It’s weird but I feel left out in the commotion of it all.

We were suppose to have speech contest practice at 4 and I’ve been waiting around for the past hour…

Have a good summer kids.

I’m a sucker for mom and pop shops. Today I finally went to the cake shop across the street from my house.

I know. I know. I’ve been living here for a year and three months and I just now go. Well, let me tell you that it doesn’t look like a cake shop from the outside, so I never went.

Either way, I went today and it was so nice! After I placed my order the owner started asking me the usual questions: what school do you work at? And where are you from?

He then told me that his daughter lives in New York (going on 18 years!). He tells me all this while in the back room carefully wrapping up my package. When he comes out he has a bag full of magazines. He might have told me earlier but I didn’t quite catch the fact that his daughter is a photographer! He flips to the pages that he has bookmarked with post it notes and shows me her photographs and then points out her name which he has highlighted. Apparently she graduated from the local high school, went to Waseda and then moved to New York and studied photography.

It’s these types of encounters that I enjoy the most! Getting to know the people around me.

As I was about to pay another customer came in and he started telling her all about me; that I live across the street, that I lived in New York and where I teach. Haha. I love oji-chans!

I will always and forever support the oji-chan and oba-chan shops!

This was an awesome weekend!

Participated in the annual Miyagi International Art and Culture show. I exhibited some of my ceramic pieces I’ve made in pottery class, I ran a mosaic workshop, and cringe sang a multilingual version of ‘Let it go’ with three other ALTs.

I also met Mary Cagle of cubewatermelon!!!! I super fan girled about seeing her work in person! Funny thing is I would always run into her at parties and never knew she was cubewatermelon!

Take a deep breath

warning rant post ahead So… I’ve been absent from the Tumblr world for a while. Why? Because I’ve been very depressed, angry, sad, and conflicted (the list can go on and on) about my job as an ALT for some time now.

Let me give you a glimpse into some of the thoughts that seems to play on repeat in my mind: *I’m sick of being a human tape recorder. I’m sick of the same lesson structures. No wonder everyone hates English! Who wants to do ‘repeat after me’ activity for 45 minutes! *I don’t want to go to work. I’m so unhappy at work. *Why don’t my JTEs understand or speak English!!! (2 of the 3 are like this)

Let me stop there because I can keep going on and on – that’s why I haven’t been posting. I don’t want to be that one angry JET that everyone hates. I’m trying to be positive and trying different approaches as I go, but I’m worn out both mentally and emotionally. I’m so worn out that on Monday afternoon I broke down and cried myself to sleep the moment I got home.

The funny thing is that I don’t hate my life here at all! In fact, I really like my life here in Japan and I like my town, too. I just don’t enjoy my job, specifically my role in junior high school. Yesterday, I just went to kindergarten and didn’t go to JHS and felt amazing!

Why am I writing this post? Because today I actually did a lesson at JHS and it felt good! It feels nice to be useful! It feels nice when you don’t spend your entire day doing nothing or just being a human tape recorder. It feels good to work.

I gotta hang in there, just three more weeks before I go back home for the summer. I’m going to take that time to think and figure out what my goals are and how to have better communication with my teacher for the next installment of my JET experience, because I don’t want to be miserable like I have been lately.

In the meantime, just breathe.

Rant post over
