Term 3 begins

So now that the holiday is officially over, it's back to mundane things like;
Today I went to the shops and bought bread, milk and eggs. Really.

I thought it would be a bit breezy during the first week of school, as it usually is with exams and all, but I've been super busy. How exactly did this happen? I don't have a clue.

The holiday homework set for my second years was to say 3 things about what they did over the Christmas and New Year period. Just 3 things. Any 3 things!

These are a few I got;

On Christmas I ate Christmas cake.
It was very delicious.
I slept.

On New Year's day I went to Kai shrine.
I went shopping in Sannomiya.
It was fun.

On January 1st, I went to my grandmother's house.
I ate osechi and ozoni.
I studied English.

But my favourite had to be this one;

I went to Tarumi station.
I saw you and your boyfriend.
I said 'Hello.'
But you said....nothing.

and this is what I was thinking while he was saying each sentence;

(What?! That's the best you can do? You went to the train station?)
(Uh-oh. When? I didn't see you. Oh crap.)
(Eeeks! I feel so bad)

But by then the whole class was laughing. So was I. The poor boy looked so cut but he was smiling too. I apologised over and over again and told him next time to say 'Hello' louder and wave and come up to me. When Brendon was here last time, he was the guy that went up to Brendon and said "You, look like me!"
