Since last time, not much in my life has changed, but fall semester (trimester?) has come to a close! Last Friday was the closing ceremony, so as of now, I've done one whole semester as an ALT! Crazy. It feels like it went by in the blink of an eye, and I can't believe that in one more semester, my kids will be graduating and changing grades and things... Some of them might even be going to private schools for middle school, in which case I will never, ever forgive them. |D;; But things have been really great, and I really feel like I'm settled into my job. More of my coworkers who don't often speak to me are at least saying good morning, so that's a plus!
On the fun front, the junior concert was two weekends ago! We had been somewhat in anxious anticipation before going, seeing as the magazines have recently been doing their best to break up the Bakaleya guys in magazine interviews, but the Bakaleya guys were definitely the most features and definitely featured as a unit. The high point was definitely Yugo getting his own solo! I was happy to see him getting the same amount of attention as might be expected... though of course, not as much as Hokuto or Jesse (who seems to be the next ~big thing besides Hokuto... idk how Johnny's makes these decisions, but those two are like, awkwardness compounded). All of them are so sweet and so hardworking though... they deserve a debut. Come on, Johnny! Do the right thing.
Now that the junior concert is done, I'm looking forward to the Sexy Zone news year's concert! That will be... after Elaine gets here! Yay! I'm also really excited to finally have my little sister visit me in Japan. I cleaned my whole apartment in preparation! And I can't wait to show her just how great Johnny's concerts are... |D;;;
But for now, it's Christmas! Tonight, yomimashou and I are going to eat leftovers from last night, when I made pasta salad and crackers with cheese and veggies and we got takeout chicken from Family Mart, a la Japanese tradition, and enjoy the four-hour Kayou Kyoku special. Happy holidays, everyone!
