I’ve been working. Not like I found that next career, but I’m working a little bit more than part time this month. Right after I got back from the US I started a bi-weekly teaching thing back down in Ichihara, as a corporate English teaching assignment. Corporate Division is also sending me to Wako city this week to teach a 6-day intensive course. 9 to 5; intensive indeed. It’s going to be tough for me to teach the same class of students for an entire day, but I figure it’s going to be even worse for the students. Can you imagine sitting in the same classroom for an entire day learning the same subject? That’s more torturous than I can imagine. I’ll try and make it fun so I don’t fall asleep while reading out of this textbook. Hopefully I’ll have some cool students or at least co-workers for this gig. I definitely can’t complain about the pay though – it’s great.

Oh, I’m also teaching private lessons on weekends. This is through another company, and they keep sending students my way! I almost want to tell them to ease up because I don’t feel like working tons of hours on Saturdays and Sundays. But yeah, I still have a lot of free time, but I think this month’s total income will be comparable to what I made before. Still need to find a “real” job though – not just because of money or anything but because I’m getting bored. You would think that having lots of time to play Mario Galaxy would never get old, but I realized that I need some kind of job. I’ll hopefully find something I like by year-end.

Since I have to be in Wako city (Saitama I think) at 8:10AM to meet the other teachers and stuff, I have to leave Chiba on the 6:25AM express train. That means I’ll need to wake up around 5 or 5:30. And it’s almost 2 now. Ouch. Riding the rush hour Tokyo-bound train is going to be a fuuun time.
