October 27, 2005 – Return to Fujinomiya


Today was my second time working in Fujinomiya. You can read more about the first time here.

The Nova branch is in the middle of a mall. It serves both as an English school, and cheap babysitting so you can get your shopping done uninterrupted. Instead of telling you about my day, I present some haiku inspired by the Fujinomiya teaching experience.

Foreign teachers watch your kids
You can shop in peace

You can sing the alphabet
20 times a shift

Long train ride from Numazu
But the food court’s great

The front of the branch is
Open so everyone can
See how bad you teach

What am i doing
This isn’t my usual
School – no more shift swaps

March 1, 2005 – Happy Birthday to The Penpal

Today was The Penpal’s birthday. We spent the evening together when she was done work. For her present I wrote her a bunch of birthday haikus in English and simple Japanese.

Yes, it’s a bit of a cheesy present, but she seemed to like it so all is well.
