Yesterday morning I spent a couple of hours on Base teaching the Japanese Military men. They're a great group (of 13). I'm excited to work with them for the next couple of weeks. It mixes up my usual, routine schedule.
This afternoon I'll head back to the Base, then back to the school to teach my kids until 9pm. These days are full of teaching, teaching, teaching. At least my weekends are full of drinking, drinking, drinking...
My Top 5 Loves
1. Grey Goose
2. Grey's Anatomy
3. Taco Rice

Today, I spent 4 hours getting my hair done. This is the happiest I've been with my hair in the last year! I almost started crying when my hair dresser told me she would never forget me.
Tomorrow morning I have to go to the Japanese Military Base and teach for a couple of hours. Yuck. In two weeks time, I'm putting in an extra 18 teaching hours. I'd rather spend that time sleeping or watching Grey's. Too bad I don't have that choice. No, I'm not bitter ;-)
Chris- Congratulations on Matthew James, aka MJ!
Hayley- I owe you an over-due e-mail...
Tony- You're beginning to sound like me with your drunken nights...
Beach- Update your blog please...
Nicole- Let me know when you're home.

After that incredible performance, we went to Rehab for one more drink. Well, one more drink for Nicole and I. Stephen decided to go out afterwards and stay out all night. He tends to do that.

As teachers, however, we have to amuse ourselves in someway, otherwise we would really go crazy. It can be so frustrating teaching English to Japanese students. I'll never know exactly how much it is they understand. More often than not, they just look at us with blank stares and all we want is some kind of reaction from them. But we have to work really hard to get anything. It's like pulling teeth. That's why Nikki and I have turned to song and dance. :-)

Nicole stole my futon last night. Now my apartment is naked.
Can I really move myself out of here in less than a month? I have my doubts. Also, I am a little nervous about travelling to Tokyo by myself; which doesn't make any sense because I have travelled to numerous places all alone. So, why is Tokyo making me nervous? I think it's because I don't have anything planned or a place to stay. Way to go, Sarah. Way...to...go...
Anyone wanna meet me in Tokyo???
My last two weeks here, I will be working over-time to help pay for my outrageous bills next month (I have a $200 cell phone bill and a $200 Internet bill for ending the contracts early. Also, I have to pay double my rent/utilities to cover the previous month, as well as the month I'm leaving). I just hope I can survive.....
PARTY AUGUST 8TH!

~I am so tired from all of this stress. Japan is exhausting. And the language barrier has been beyond challenging; lots of tears and stress over that alone. I just can't wait to be home. That is all I want.
