The not-so-little bastard couldn't get out so I had to tip over the glass. D: Casualty!
I sprayed the fucker with roach spray and now he's dead. There better not be a nest of babies in my house somewhere. Shit, now I'm all jumpy.

Today has just been the crappiest day ever. I had 3 classes - 1st year and 3rd year were doing my lesson plans, the fifth time around for me so I was really hating them by that point. And then I had to teach 2nd year solo. Oh yes, alone. Kaneko-sensei has been away since last week but no one has told me what happened. Even if he's deathly ill he'll still come to school so I'm thinking it's an accident or family emergency. Either way... I had to teach by myself. I teach 4-5 or sometimes 6 classes of elementary kids every Friday who for the most part can't understand a thing I'm saying... but 2nd year of Jr High makes me nervous? Well, fourteen year olds can talk back. There was another Japanese teacher there for "support" but they are as useful as the elementary teachers. I had Ohara-sensei with me today, and all the kids are scared of her so at least they weren't rowdy and fucking around during class. But I have to do it 4 more times...
On top of that, there is a speech contest coming up so Nakamura-sensei asked me to look for some stories for the student doing it, and to do a lesson plan for the conversation elective on Monday, and I had to decide on something for grade 6 tomorrow... it was a busy and stressful day.
On top of that... BUGS. I took a shower tonight and when I stepped out I saw this black thing on my kitchen floor and knew even without my glasses that it was a monster roach. MONSTER. Fucking like the size of my index and middle fingers together. There was some screaming and flailing and crying involved but I managed to trap it and stun it with my laundry bucket and then throw it outside (along with my waste paper bin... I'll rescue that tomorrow). I don't have anyone to do it for me....... so I have to suck it up and do it and then cry about it later.
I hope that tomorrow goes without any stress or problems. I get a bit of a break because one class is a week behind so I'll get to do two different lessons instead of five of all the same. And it's the last week of term so I won't be back there until September. Ahhh summer vacation starts next week! I'm seeing Stephen at some point tomorrow... I'm not overly excited. That's a sign. Even as friends..... ahgdaf. I just feel so trashy. What. dfkjdfsadfjd. And Himitsu wasn't on tonight for some reason. And that just made me more depressed.
