Golden week has come and gone and we are back at work. Apart from a day trip to Kyoto, we didn’t do much but stay at home and relax. Relax being the key word. After a long break, it feels good to back at work. We are refreshed and ready to tackle the next study period. This week, I noticed that not only was I feeling refreshed but also that our students were feeling energetic. I was so impressed with all of our students this week. Everyone was very talkative and everyone brought topics to the table, mostly about their golden week activities. Some students went abroad, others enjoyed “stay-cations” in Otsu, everyone had fun and enjoyed telling us about it in class. Also, apart from 1 day of heavy rain in the middle, the weather was really excellent during the golden week holiday. Over the holiday we cleaned the school, we cleaned our house, and we cleaned our minds. It’s great to be back at school, feeling refreshed. Let’s go!
