So a few updates.
I had my first day of classes at my middle school (where I will be spending the bulk of my time), and I think the self introduction went well. I got asked if I had a boyfriend in most of my classes (no surprise there) and said hello about a million times.
My apartment is coming together but I need to chill out with the spending since it will be awhile until I’m officially paid. Also I’m pretty sure I’ve been to every restaurant in town now.
There are two other ALTs in my building, which is rad, and they’ve been super helpful and nice carting me around everywhere. Fortunately I just got my car! It’s actually fairly nice and now I have all weekend to practice. I drove it to sushi last night and then home and consistently turned on my windshield wipers instead of my blinker.
I’m terrified of falling into those gaijin traps on the side of the road. I know this will happen and it’s becoming my nightmare fodder.
Also I need to stop buying Japanese donuts. They aren’t good and I can’t seem to remember.
All for now.
