Hi! I know I haven’t finished my vacation details yet, but I thought I’d add a few words about how my new semester is shaping up. First, as you can see, I have a new friend. Her name is “Catticus”. Apart from that, I had my 1st pottery class of the semester, and have chosen to teach an overtime writing class (8am every day). It’s nice to be back, and I’m enjoying all my classes (I have a lot of repeat students from last semester), and I love my new apartment. … oh, and we’ve had tons of rain from the typhoon that hit Japan, but no high winds. That’s all for now.
