Fall is right around the corner and Japan sure loves it’s seasonal goodies, so here is a little review of a pumpkin-flavored ice cream that has popped up in conbinis around the country! 

We may not have Starbucks` Pumpkin Spice Latte, but we got that Haagan-Dazs Pumpkin Ice Cream!

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

Today’s Conversation

Kindergarten student: Jeshika-sensei!!! おっぱい!!! runs towards me and high fives my boobs

Me: -_-

KG student: Jeshika-sensei!! おしり! touches my butt

Me: -_- (thank god I wasn’t kanchoed)

KG student2: sniffing my pants your pants smell good.

Me: really? Thank you? stick leg out

Three students: press their noses against my leg and take a big sniff いい匂い!! smells good!

KG student 3: your legs are so soft

Me: -_-

There is no such thing as personal space at kindergarten.

SPEECH CONTEST IS OVER!

It’s done and over with!

We didn’t win, but I’m very proud of my girls for all the hard work and dedication that they put into memorizing their speeches. I’m like a proud mother right now!

Not only do I feel like a proud mother but I feel so much happier all around, because this year was so much better for me! My girls actually were very nice to me and respected me. I even got real hugs from two of them! Ya’ll know what I’m talking about when I say real hugs, especially if you’ve ever hugged a Japanese person.

Anyways, the ALTs have this tradition where we make sign boards for the students and the students seemed really happy to receive the boards. I gave all the girls little treats when we would practice but today I gave each of them a hand made sign board and a Polaroid picture to commemorate the event.

I think one of the best parts of the day was the fact that my students got to see me and how I really am. At school, for some reason, I completely change my personality. Today, they saw me joking and messing around with the other ALTs and basically saw the real me. It was just a good day over all around.

Now, that the speech contest is over I can relax. お疲れ様 to me!

 (Side note: Three of my girls will be going to Australia for a short home stay next month!)

Today's conversation

  • Me: Hey, you!
  • Student named Yu: Yu? *pointing to self*
  • Me: Yeah, you! *realizing how funny this is*
  • Student: Yu cool?
  • Me: Yes, you're very cool.
  • Student: やった!!
  • ☆*: .。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆ *runs down the hallway screaming in excitement*
  • It's been a while since I've made a "today's conversation" post. As you can tell I haven't been updating my blog much.
  • Either way this was too funny! Most of my student encounters are when I'm going to the restroom and this one is by far the best! Haha
