an insight into the mind of a genius

The obvious….

Listening To  D I G I T A L L Y - I M P O R T E D & - Hardcore - DJ mixes, hard dance and NuNRG!
Feeling  Very Tired (w00t!)

Yup, I still couldn’t get to sleep until about 4am, so come 9am i was in no mood to get up for school. I’m going to go to the pharmacy at some point to get some sleeping tablets or something, this is getting stupid.

I had also forgotten that I was starting work earlier (doh!) so awoke my usual time, looked down at the floor and shock horror, saw the piece of paper strategically placed to remind me… lol…

It was ok, I still made it in on time, but i think i was pretty lucky as i hadn’t set an alarm or anything…

Arrived in work to find Yumi having a hayfever fit (or so i thought), it was quite amusing, so i just laughed and went into the staff room. It was only after listening to her through the wall that I started think maybe it wasn’t a hayfever fit she was having - my suspicions were confirmed when she ran into the staff room and to me in a flood of tears. A brief bit of consoling then ensued (along with wiping the snot off my shirt …) - however it was obvious she didn’t want to say what was up in front of everyone and would much rather go to sleep…

Work was pretty much same old, same old, though had 2 voice classes which was a nice way to break up the time. Then it was all over, so it was back to mine where is was Yumi’s turn to cook.

Yaki Udon again, but this time there was no Shiho to steal half of it, haha, so we sat on the bed to watch “The Shawshank Redemption” whilst we ate. It was only after an hour or so that I noticed Yumi had fallen asleep, so put the cover over her and carried on watching…

This proved to be a fatal mistake on my part, as come 1am (and when i wanted to go to bed) - she was sparko and wouldn’t get up. Not wanting a repeat of the other nite (i needed good sleep as I had kids training today) - i managed to eventually wake her up (though i felt quite guilty) and send her back out into the cold :(
So as mentioned, today was “Kids Training Day” - essentially we (I) go on a course which teaches us the basics on how to conduct the kids lessons. It was an 8 hour day, held in the same place as my last training session.

Well, I’ve just got back from it now, knowing pretty much as little as I knew before. I can’t say I really rated it very much at all and every one seemed a bit confused at the end. This seems to be a trend with Nova though, the training seems pretty basic and you are expected to pick up most of the knowledge on your own.

I also have a nasty suspicion I will have a Kids class tomorrow, which I really don’t feel ready for. However this was true of the normal lessons before, so I guess it’s just a case of doing it - thus getting used to it….

You may be wondering what the huge song names are I’ve been listening to, I recently started to listen to shoutcast radio stations again - in particular “Digital Imported” the “Happy Hardcore” station. This could (I suspect) be part of the reason I can never sleep as my mind is racing too fast, so I’m going to start switching it off a bit before bed and work on my Japanese (Still transferring between books) - if that doesn’t send me to sleep, nothing will… haha…

Makes me really miss the music and clubs of the UK though - it’s amazing how much music affects me I think, it really can turn a depressing time to a happy time. Shame my tastes are really not catered for out here - so god bless the internet… w00t!

Ah well, school tomorrow, so I better wrap this up and get on with my writing - Air Con ON!! Hiragana AWAY!!! :D
