I always really liked Usagi and Naru’s friendship :)
This was just an exercise in a different digital technique I’ve been playing with (and on my patience…) Every colour is a different layer. Even if they’re the same colour, if they’re apart - different layer. I’m crazy.
(See if you can spot the episode cameos haha!)

Yesterday… and the rest of the week

Yesterday… Plus the rest of the week

Tuesdays are usually my days with the third years. But they had a big test all day, so classes were canceled. I managed to find some first year classes to go to instead and we had so much fun! This year’s first year teacher has amazing English pronunciation. When I first met her, I assumed she had lived abroad for a while because she has absolutely no accent. When I asked her about it though, she said she hadn’t even studied abroad. She just had a good teacher. Well, yesterday I found out why her pronunciation is so good—she’s really serious about it!

Just a list I wrote up for myself as reminders and motivation for when I’m feeling a bit down about how my skills are progressing or when I don’t feel like studying!

Paying the rent

Each month, the board of education (my official employer) sends me the bill for my rent sometime around the first week or so of the month. I am then paid on the 20th and I have until the 21st to pay my rent. Or at least, that’s the way things are supposed to go and have been going up until this month.

This month, my bill did not come when it usually does. I didn’t think much of it at first. With the start of the new school year, and a change in ALT supervisors at the board of ed, it made sense that it would come a little late. But when it didn’t come last week, I started getting nervous. After all, Monday was the 21st, the deadline for payment.

Quiet Day at Work

Today is supposed to be my busy day at work. According to my schedule, I have four classes with the third years, and another with a second year class. However, the third years have some sort of standardized test all day, leaving me with one class all day. Wow. I’ll definitely do a lot of studying, but I might have to see if I can wrangle up some other classes to go to too.
