Day 3

After feeling really sick for a long time last night, I managed to not actually *get* sick, and my fever us gone.
My students and the teachers were beyond sweet again <3<3.

This isn't something happy, but it makes me laugh for an unknown reason - I got some ads in my mailbox. They are ads for 2 call girl services, and the girls will do anything (it even lists their services, some of which I didn't know the Japanese for until just now!).

8 days of happiness - Day 2

Things that made me happy:
I didn't get sick at work.
MY VP was sweet and kept telling me to go home early.
A bunch of my students said they were really worried about me. (<3<3)
I found out that a bunch of other teachers were sick this weekend too.
My dad E-mailed me.
I didn't wreck the rental car.

8 days of happiness or something

tagged by kenaressa.

The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day.

i don't know if i will be able to post all 8 days but we will see.

i am happy that i was able to make it to the car place by myself and get back home safely. and i am happy that i can keep white bread and clear liquids down.

i'm supposed to tag people but i think most people i know have been tagged, so.... if you haven't been tagged and want to do it, go for it.

Halloween nails

I got some free Halloween nail art stickers a few weeks ago (yay free!!) so I decided to put them on for Halloween. I have elementary school Thursday and Friday so hopefully the kids will get a kick out of it. I wish there had been some more designs, but hey, whatever. Free!

Tofukuji and Kyoto National Museum

Today, pretty much for the hell of it, I went to Kyoto. First I went to the Kyoto National Museum. Their special exhibit was black and gold makie. Some of the stuff was absolutely gorgeous. You can see some of it here. I then headed over to Tofukuji since it is just one stop away. As I was leaving some dude came up and asked to take a picture of me in front of the temple. I was like "umm.... OK." Then he wanted to get one of us together. So, we did. I stood there for a second trying to figure out if he still wanted to talk to me but he moved off so I just left. He didn't chase after me so I have no idea what that was all about.

Anyway, I was too early to see the autumn foliage (haha), but I still took a bunch of pictures. Highlights are under the cut.

Late night musings II

Should I take the high road and treat people like I want to be treated? Or should I treat them like I have been treated? And if I should pick the first one do I have the right to be upset or disappointed when I am turned down or mistreated or taken advantage of or whatever again? More importantly should I even care or bother?
