After Graduation

The teachers celebrated with an enkai (a dinner party). I was told we were going to a Soba shop. I wasn’t super excited about spending about $30 on Soba, but I was excited to spend time with my teachers, so I decided to join in.

I was quite surprised (in a good way) that the dinner that night was not actually Soba, but a regular enkai.

(sorry for the not amazing quality of photos I have, this camera didn’t do such a good job).

My favorite moment was when the mayor and the head of the BOE showed up, unexpectedly. They sat down and we “kampai”-ed again (cheers!) with them. It was a fun night of celebrating with the teachers.

A frustrating moment with a giggle

I got to play another round of “are you even listening to me?” with a phone call to another customer service company.

This time, Ebay. I had some relatively stupid issues with the site, and needed help resetting my password. (sparing all of you some relatively unexciting details).

I got put on hold for the second time and began to peruse my google reader feed.

That’s when I found this (and I wasn’t expecting the punch line): 

Zits never stops making me want to giggle.
