  • Giggles of Sacrifice
    on Jul 21, 2011 in Japan
    I went to the burger place today. The burger place that is 5 minutes ride from my house and directly opposite the 24 hour internet cafe I used a few times a week for the first month I was here. The burger place that my (and Ashley’s) students r...
  • Farewell Speech
    on Jul 21, 2011 in Japan
    Here’s my speech, first in English, then in Japanese. An embarrassing but I think, necessary addition to the blog. Now only ten days left…  ...
  • Eighteen Days
    on Jul 14, 2011 in Japan
    As he struggled to think of the word ‘sky’ and then scribbled an incomprehensible version of said word on the board, the student next to him thrust up his hand, straining on his tiptoes as he proudly displayed the word ‘sea’,...
  • Deity of Me
    on Jul 1, 2011 in Japan
    As humans, we like to talk about ourselves a lot. It’s natural. To us, we are the most important people in our lives and everyone else’s interests are but a mere speck of insignificance compared to what we’re doing and how we look a...
  • Reverse Culture Shock
    on Jun 29, 2011 in Japan
    I have 32 full days left in Japan. In this time I will have taught 11 days of lessons, gone to a birthday party, attended a sumo tournament, visited the school for the blind for the last time, partied on a rooftop terrace with all the other leavers,...
  • In Ten Years Time
    on Jun 16, 2011 in Japan
    Just a short one today. I assigned one of my classes the task of writing about where they will be in 10 years time and had a couple of really stand-out replies that I wanted to share with you all… I am 25 years old. Now, I work in moon because...
  • Brain-rain
    on Jun 6, 2011 in Japan
    Rainy season is rubbish. We’re only about a week in and I can already confirm it. Apparently this year it’s early so I’m hoping that means it’ll be over early too, at which point the rain will give way to bone-melting heat an...
  • You Got Me Burnin’ Out
    on May 27, 2011 in Japan
    “Finally, a bloody blog,” I hear you say, as you peel your finger from the left mouse button and move the pointer away from the Refresh button for the first time since my last blog. Seriously, you’re putting my stats all out of prop...
  • Trip to Tokyo (Pt. 2)
    on May 6, 2011 in Japan
    Saturday morning then and I wake up to the unmistakable sound of alley-cats endlessly howling at each other just outside my window. They never actually fight each other of course, they just scream at each other for hours as part of some primeval rit...
  • Trip to Tokyo (Pt. 1)
    on May 2, 2011 in Japan
    I woke up on Friday to another of Japan’s ubiquitous bank holidays, elated initially because I didn’t have to go to work, then simply annoyed because it was 7:30am and I was completely unable to get back to sleep. Gone are the days when...
