All my lovely students!
How have you been? How is Japan? It’s the rainy season now, isn’t it? Is it hot? Right now, California has great weather. Cool in the evenings with a breeze and warm doing the day. However, this weekend we will be really hot. It’s going to be about 90 degree Fahrenheit. I think that’s about 37 or so in Celsius. I’m not sure.
I have been in California for almost a month now. So much has happened. After coming home, I got to relax a little. It was nice to be lazy. But I also like money so I needed to get a job. I decided to do a part time job. Maybe you know it! It’s called background work. Or as you may know it as “Extras.” This is a person in a movie or tv show and they are in the background. You cannot see their face so much and they don’t talk but I can make some money. It is a very easy job and I get free food and drinks. No alcohol though…too bad 😉
Also, in addition, I am doing some writing. It’s not a full-time or part-time job but it is called “Free-lancing.” I can make a little money from this and it helps me to be able to keep writing.
My birthday was last week. Do you know how old I turned? Let’s all take a guess. I had a nice dinner with my family and we went mini-golfing. Do you know what this is? It’s not like real golf. I also had a bbq with my friends and family at my house. Very American style. We ate outside with music and friends, we played drinking games. I will have to teach you how to play drinking games. This game is called “King Cup.” You will need a deck of cards.
I am planning on taking some Japanese classes in the fall. I may go to a community college. Do you know this kind of college? It’s much cheaper and easier to attend.
Next month, I am going to Yosemite so I will send you some photos. I hope you are all doing well in your lessons and keep up. Ganbatte yo!
