Noa's job + GEOS

Last night was really exciting...

NOA-CHAN GOT A JOB ;-;!!! *celebrates tearfully* She's been trying so hard to get a job teaching English in Japan, and she finally wrangled one in. This was something we both wanted to do, and I felt really bad that I was going to go over there and leave her here, but now she's going to actually be in Japan before me XD;;;. She'll go over on August 26th, and I'll get there on August 29th. Funny how things work out XD. She was doing an interview on Skype with a company called Heart School, and apparently she was offered a job at the end of the interview. I'm so proud of her ;-;. *proud-senpai sniffle*

Also, this morning I finished up my final GEOS correspondence package, so I'm really happy to be done with that <3. I still need to make some props for my lesson (flash cards, worksheets, etc.), but I just need to have that ready and shoved somewhere in my suitcase before I leave for Vancouver.

EVERYTHING'S WORKING OUT. For now, anyway XD. *slinks off to watch more Olympics <3*

Thank yoooou ^o^! It'll be very interesting teaching Japanese students... I'm banned from using any Japanese at all in the classroom, so we'll see how things go XD;.

*will do her best to teach!*

And wow, I've missed all your Wentz icons XDD. HE'S SO PRETTY <3!!!

NOOOO, COME BACK HELEN-CHAN! *dragdragdrag* You're doing good too ^o^! The way to be most productive is to CHILL during your break, okay? That way you'll feel better once classes roll around ^o^. *petpet*

That's so awesome! Is she going to be located near you? Also, kudos to you for getting everything finished! I knew you could do it! ♥

She doesn't know exactly where she'll be yet, but she knows it'll be about 1-2 hours from Tokyo... so me and her will just have to meet in Tokyo ^o^. Me and her studied for a semester in Tokyo together a couple years ago, so hopefully we won't burn a trail of shopping across Harajuku and Ikebukuro like we used to XD;. *needs to save her money*

Ahh, thank you... I like lesson planning, but once they put it in homework format like this, it becomes SO DIFFICULT TO DO. *flomps over* Oh well, it's done XD;.

ooh~ just one more week until your training~ training isn't bad. it just feels way longer than it really is XD at noon on the first day it felt like we had already been there for atleast a day, maybe two. there's lots of walking, but if you get a good group (like mine was) it can be fun ^.^ and don't let Michel make you think you need to run through Narita airport. you really don't (though don't dawdle either). Kirk (guy that was meeting me at the airport and will likely meet you too) gave us (Alison and me) a weird look when we told him we were told to run XD he had only just arrived and our flight was almost an hour late.... so yeah, you don't need to run like you're told in training XP

anyway, good luck! i'm sure you'll do great ^__^ hopefully i'll see you in japan in the next couple of months~

Actually, I've got 2 weeks until my training. They told me to turn mine in 2 weeks before my training days... oh well, if I had an extra week, I would've just put everything off for another week XD;;;.

I thought the interview days dragged oooooon and on, so it sounds like from what you say training will feel like that too XD. *will prepare her brain somehow for exhaustion* And lol, they said you had to run XDD?? I think Michel likes to play jokes or something. I don't think I'll be able to run with my ginormous suitcases, anyway.

How's Ota City treating you ^o^? Have you had a chance to wander around and see the sights yet, or have you been too busy with lesson planning?

ah~ i wish they'd told us to hand them in two weeks before. i'm like you: i leave things til the last second... so i was packing like crazy while trying to get my props together for my lesson. it was really bad >>

lol, well... he told us to move as fast as possible and not to wait for any of the other people on our flight. for most of the "run" you only have your carryon. you only grab your bags right before going through the last customs lineup. but yeah, the training seems long.... but then once you're thrown into your classroom, it doesn't seem long enough XD (or atleast that's what i found ^.^;;;)

i got to go exploring yesterday, actually. i walked out to the mall to see if i could get a DVD i wanted (which i couldn't >>). it took me an hour to get there XD next time i go... hopefully i'll have my bike figured out >> but yeah. Ota's interesting. it's very much a city, but at the same time it feels very country. there's a rooster that crows everyday on my street, and every third house has it's own little field of vegetables XD it's very interesting.

I still need to make the props for my lesson (flash cards, work sheets, etc), so I guess I'm not 100% done... but that's the fun part for me, so it won't be too difficult ^o^.

I don't think there'll even be anyone else on the flight I've chosen... I chose the more expensive nonstop flight to Japan, just because I always have a hard time navigating airports XD;. *will be on her own when trying to find the GEOS worker* I just hope the most that I don't crash and burn when trying to teach students in Japan. I'll probably be ready to freak out after the first day XD;.

What DVD are you looking for? Ota City sounds cool... like a combination of city and farm life XD. All my Japanese friends tell me that Yokohama is a great place, so hopefully it'll be a cool place too ^o^.
