I told one of my managers about my job offer at Coach today and since I’m on probation period with the company (it’s 3 months long), it would appear that I’ll be going to Coach for sure since I have almost burned a bridge (I’d say the match is lit). Tomorrow I’m discussing it with the head manager and going from there. I also have to get my second TB test completed for school.
My Mom just popped her head in to comment on my progress in my lessons. She says my vocals are amazing (before it was kinda ennnh… but now she loves it. Even after one lesson I’m better), my technique in piano has improved (less sloppy!), and I’ve learned the basic 5 hiragana symbols: あ (a), い (i), う (u), え (e), お (o). I’m taking baby steps with the writing and alphabet. Tomorrow I’m going to learn the k and g sounds. It’s pretty tough to write out hiragana with pen and it doesn’t look quite right now… but it’ll get better with practice. Doing the exercises reminds me of when I was 4 and in pre-school. I’d learn the English alphabet by tracing the letters and numbers on these sheets that my baby sitter would give me. Then I’d learn a little bit of Tagalog, and as a reward, I’d play Dr. Mario or Super Mario Bros. Ah, fun times.
I’m currently reading all about this 15 year-old (now 16) girl’s adventures in a year-long exchange program that she did in Japan. Pretty fun stuff. After this I’m going to do some physical exercise and then head to bed.
