I have a hugely bruised hand because I managed to throw up for a week and ended up on a drip for 5 hours. I also managed a couple of fevers high enough to cause hallucinations. Now we're back to exhaustion, headaches, and a sore throat. I figure lots of sleep will fix it right up...that and learning to eat again. A week of no food and now I can't eat any significant amount of food.
I am passing the time between naps and studying with Grey's Anatomy. I love Grey's Anatomy. It's trash, but so very good. I can even stand the faux-losophic narration, if I can sit through Mohinder's in Heroes I can certainly sit through Meredith's. His is much, much worse because the horrible butchering of science that goes with the poor attempts psychology. I'd kind of forgotten how awesome some the characters (mostly Burke and Izzie) were in season 1. Bailey has always been awesome and may actually be entirely made of awesome. There is no Addison yet, which makes me sad. Everything is better with Kate Walsh. I suppose I can make do with my slight crushes on most of the female cast. The boys...not so much.
I've been thinking about Japan next year. It's quite scary and I have no idea what I'm doing. Everything I've read has told me something different about the eikaiwa and being an ALT. Ideally I would rather avoid teaching adults, but kindy through high school would be good. I think I'd be good with the little kids. I think I'd like to go to Kobe. I love Tokyo and Kyoto, but cannot afford to live in either of them. I am not fond of Osaka, except for Takarazuka. I've never been to Kobe, but I kind of want to. I want somewhere I can actually have holidays, I am going to live there but when all is said and done, I'll still be playing tourist. I am more concerned with holidays and hours than wages. Minimum wage is more than acceptable.
I am back to seriously considering a paid account now they are on sale. Given current trends, I'll wait and see what happens with the Aussie dollar. It seems to be getting better.
