Lookit me, I've refrained from posting for a whole five days.
... Feels a lot longer. orz
Somehow I made it through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week.
Kisechuu didn't actually plan on having me go to class on Wed., even though it was my first day back. I was so jet lagged I didn't realize it was first period until it was half done, so I wound up going to only two of three classes.
Komagata shou was great, because it was two classes of third graders and one of fifth and sixth each. The third graders are freaking adorable, and Rikachan in my fifth grade class was so happy to see me she nearly sent us both flying down the stairs when she tackled me. Eimei was Eimei. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great. At least both the fifth grade classes are on the same page now.
Friday I went immediately from school to the apartment, grabbed my bag and ran for the 18:00 bus to make the next train (19:00) to go to capncosmos
's place. Three hours of train ride, and most of it full of high schoolers. I got myself a nap for lack of anything better to do. I also got a cold and I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM. I didn't have it Thursday and I didn't have it Friday morning. WTH body?!
On Saturday I tagged along to capncosmos
's ikebana class. It is awesome, taught by an appropriately awesome little old lady. Though I'm not sure how many times I'll get to go, I found myself walking out with a nearly complete set of ikebana equipment. This means I feel like I should be going every week, but three hours on a train, not to mention I'd be crashing capncosmos
's party every time.
I've started RPing again via livejournal. It's quite fun so far, and it's a nicely structured set up which, but sadly the sempai of Johnny's are sorely under represented. And by that I mean we have Nakai and that's it.
Now. Kanjani8 media. WHERE ARE YOUR DOWNLOADING COMMS? WHY DO THEY HIDE FROM ME!?!
And I totally almost forgot the real purpose of this post: At Kisechuu, Nakamura-sensei totally used Johnny's to explain the vocabulary today. The word was new, and she related it to NewS - I don't remember the exact words but it went something like:
"Because the news is all the new things happening in the world and being explained to the viewer. It's a lot of 'new', so it's news, like Johnny's NewS."
She then proceeded to use Hey!Say! in a similar fashion, telling the kids to remember the word 'say'.
Oh, Nakamura-sensei. For awesome.
