Today at my Japanese lesson I told my teacher about The Penpal and I getting engaged. She was very excited for me, but did tell me that I really should have talked to her father first. I agreed, so my regular lesson plan was set aside for the day so we could work on all kinds of language related to weddings.
One of the best things about private lessons is that they can be tailored to the student’s needs. It was also nice for me to have someone else I could talk to about the situation. It was driving me crazy that I couldn’t go around telling everyone yet.
I’m sure my coworkers wondered what was wrong with me as I grinned my way through the day at work.
