So this week has been fucking shitty overall.  On Wednesday, Yao, the Chinese boy at school had 3,000 stolen from his wallet.  He thinks that it was Kobayashi, his helper/friend but of course denied it when asked.  But it was rather suspicious that Kobayashi started feeling sick and then went home early.  Luckily I had Chinese langague support installed on my computer so Yao could type and then translate to Japanese.  It wasn't perfect but better than me floundering in two languages I can't speak fluently.  I don't think the money was ever found.

Yesterday I had no classes because grade 6 are in Nikko.  I went to Toyoshiki and worked on my Japanese-singing-in-English thing for English club (and found so much good stuff!) and then to Ni-shou for 5th period.  Which ended up being 6th period but whatever because they had some kind of practice.  Naito-sensei had to leave early so I would be by myself.  Alright, that's fine.  I pretty much teach alone anyway.  But the fucking class were 15 minutes late and then took at least 5 minutes to put all their stuff away and no one had their book or nametags and they chatted the whole time.  And then when I gave them their work to do, which was pretty much just homework since they didn't even have time to write their names, I was one copy short.  So I went to the teacher's room to run off a copy and when I came back, one boy is lying on the floor at the back of the room clutching his stomach.  I thought maybe he was sick or something but I think another kid punched him.  I flagged down a teacher walking in the hall for help and ran for the nurse since I thought it was serious but I guess not.  And then the vice-principal was supposed to come and do the end-of-day aisatsu but he disappeared.  I didn't know what they were supposed to do (which ended up just being "Sayonara" and then they are free to go).  Ugh. 

I just get the feeling that no one takes me seriously.  I didn't yell at them like I usually would, but maybe I should have. 

This morning I wake up to a dozen crows outside my apartment.  They are flying all over the place and fighting in the street.  Where the hell did they come from?  They are huge.

I think I might try to get tickets to Nino's play this summer.  Anyone interested?  How many tickets should I try for?  Of course this has to happen when I am on a super tight budget.  If I don't score, I'll get my money back anyway.  It's right when I'm off work for summer!  I wonder what show time/date would be the least busy.

I wanna try for the butai but I heard the last balloting date was June 1st? What have you heard?

Since I don't even know if Arashi will be doing a concert by the time I get there, I'd at least like to see this.

I think it's an application for a ballot, not the ballot itself but I haven't checked with my dictionary yet. I will let you know.

No, I lie. It's the ballot. Apply by email from 5/28~6/1 and then results are announced 6/11. You pay after you win, instead of before which is kind of a relief. But it says the S seats are for club members only. Even if I win, it's got to be club members. Are you still one?

Yep, I'm still in club~ But I figured I'd have a better chance if I just tried for cheap seats than the S seats. I can log in J-Net and ballot there or what?

Yeah, log in and look for 二宮和也公演 on the Arashi page and ballot there. I'll include you in my ballot if you include me. :D You need to provide all the people's info. Name and number I guess.

Okay so that's 2. I would say, I should just get 4 but that's like 300$. Y_____Y Which I don't really have to spare.

It says it's limited to fan club members online, even the guests. Did you apply yet? If you have, I need your FC number.

I have applied and by the time I get through the door of my apartment I should have my FC number. I'll send it to you as soon as I can.

i feel really bad for Yao. :( really bad.

I just get the feeling that no one takes me seriously.
i guess it's hard because you're like a 'visiting' teacher, right? :( i hope it works out, somehow. argh teacher-rants, i totally get what you mean! HUGS. feel better soon?

and ugh, crows sound scary... are you scared of them? i know it's horrid to generalise like that (haha) but girls should be terrified of birds that size, right? i mean, i know i am. :P

Ahh damn, I thought I replied to this. Brain fart.

Yeah, it really sucks. Being a foreigner myself, I can't help but think this is a little bit of racism/picking on the new kid who can't talk back. But good on him for going to the teacher right away. I hope it worked out in the end... I'll ask Nakamura-sensei on Monday.

It's true. They don't think of me as a real teacher... one of the kids said, "Just get any staff-teacher to do the aisatsu," when I was standing right there. I wanted to yell at them yesterday but really, it won't make any difference. I'll just make a fool of myself screaming in Japanese since I'll say stuff wrong and they won't understand me in English so there's no point.

Nah, just don't look them in the eye and don't linger. They're gone now, thank god.

Watching Jyoou no Kyoushitsu really scared me the hell outta me when it comes to Japanese schools. Poor kid! :(
