Wind-down

February 19th, 2008

So, it’s that time of year when everyone and everything begins to slow down. (Ironic, since we’re just now beginning to thaw.) The result is a very bored ALT sitting captive in the teacher’s room for no ostensible reason, thus furthering the impression that he is an overpaid do-nothing… That image will be fixed when my admittedly larger than necessary calendar is filled out with admittedly brighter than necessary red ink with my admittedly insane schedule, come the new term. In the meantime, I stay off the computer as much as I can bring myself to – since they are under heavy use with the other teachers being here more often themselves. Lucky for me, then, that I’ve got 3 books to peruse as I bide my time. Le sigh. Luckily, next month looks pretty active. Graduations, school closing ceremonies, a last minute make-up visit (to cover a visit I missed while sick), and then a trip to look forward to. Yay! The only thing I have to look forward today, by comparison, is the strangely hypnotic uncharacteristic trip-hop Japanese song they’ve played during my lunch buying time for the last few days. It’s not much, but it’s something.
