He was going for somewhere with his friends.
Of cource he looks frivolous as before.(￣▽￣;)
And just soon after that, I happened to meet another student Yoshiro Kimura at the corner of 力(Riki; yakitori shop).
He is in the badminton club and he told me that he had little time to study.
He also told me that his marks were slightly above average.
I'm much pleased that both of them enjoy their own school lives.

My grandma wanted to buy something that I really want for my birthday, so I asked her to give me a new briefcase.
In the middle of January, when most shops were having a sale, my grandma and I went to 伊勢丹(Isetan) to find a good one.
Then I found a good one with a good price at COMME ÇA MEN, which is one of my favorite brands.
Eigonoie has been approved by STEP to administer the test, so I was an examiner of grade pre-2 in the morning and grade 2 and 3 in the afternoon on that day.
Before the test, we told the students to mark both on their answer sheet and test booklets so as to check the answer quickly.
Then I've checked them all today.
Well......I hoped everyone would pass.
But...............only a few students will fail this test. (≧へ≦)
How can I encourage them to have a positive motivation??

I found this shop last year and have been there many times.
The chefs and the staffs are from China so that we can enjoy genuine chinese noodles.
Today's my order is Sichuan Set, which includes Sichuan Dan Dan Noodle and Mapo Dofu.
It's so hot and spicy that always my tongue feels numb.
A little addicted. (￣∪￣)
Passing through the JR ticket gate and walking a little, I can see a monorail station 立川北(Tachikawa-kita).
多摩都市モノレール(Tamatoshi Monorail line) runs very slowly.
The passing views from the train window are so nice; we can see Mt. Fuji if it's a fine, clear day.
So I'd like to show my journey to the university as a memory.
My journey starts from 武蔵浦和駅(Musashi-Urawa station).
埼京線(Saikyo-line) and 武蔵野線(Musashino-line) stop at this station, and I use the latter one.
I always get on the second door of the third car from the front.
This train is famous for its much frequency of the accidents.
But there seems to be no problem today, and I'll be able to enjoy the next 30 minutes in the train. (^∪^)♪

They found me in Eigonoie and made a fuss in front of the entrance....lol
I haven't kept in touch with them, but they are not so changed as I saw them last.
We could talk for just a few minutes.
I'm so glad to see their smiles. (￣▽￣)♪

I found this at the stationery shop in Tachikawa ecute called "Smith", which is under the direct management of DELFONICS.
You can find the same shop in Urawa Parco.
If you're interested in them, have a look at http://www.parco-urawa.com/page/shop/detail/?id=4375 or http://www.delfonics.com/.

Japanese players had remonstrated for about five minutes that the assistant had raised his flag for an offside position before Kawashima comitted his foul.
But Iranian referee Torky Mohsen insisted that it wasn't offside because the ball was played back to Kawashima by a Japanese defender Konno.
Here is the controversial scene.
Actually it's difficult to see the truth from the video, but the commentators say,
"It MUST be offside!!"

The advertisement of Eigonoie inserted in a newspaper was delivered to people living in around Urawa this morning.
And now we're waiting for any inquiries after the effect of our ad.
Eigonoie provides a very first lesson on February.
Looking forward to seeing new students!! (*^▽^)/

They are in the same situation as me, I mean, we're studying at the university on the additional year after the graduation to get a teaching certificate.
Of cource I'm a quite different type of man among them so that we'll be a different type of teacher in the future.
But I feel so glad to meet them because I could reduce my stress by talking with them every Wednesday.
I would have been all alone at college if they hadn't been there.
Thank you so much.
I wish they will be a good English teacher someday!! (*^_^*)

Of course I like English songs, but I don't sing them because my friends don't know them so much.
I also like to sing Japanese songs.
Especially my recent favorite singer is FUNKY MONKEY BABYS.
I think their voice is so clear and their lyrics are so pure.
It is also popular that they feature celebrities in their promotion videos.
Their voice, lyrics, melodies, and promotion videos......my heart was touched by everything of them.
If you're interested in them, go to http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=FUNKY+MONKEY+BABYS&aq=f.
I love those members because they know what's the most important thing; building the good relationship between not only teacher-student and teacher-parents but also teacher-teacher leads to a success.
Actually there're some iron-hearted men in Eikoh now, so it must be too stressful for them.
So I think Nana's resignation was correct and it was a brave decision.
Well after the drinking party, we went to Karaoke U-Style to blow steam off by singing.
Yeah, you know, Mr. Takano and Nana were very crazy indeed!! (^□^;)haha
But all we could vent our frustration and laugh our cares away.

Our boss Mr. Saito also attended that party and we talked a lot about good old days and bad present days...(^□^;)
To my surprise, 2 or 3-years-older sempai Tsuji-kun and Maimai will get married!!

Most of companies have the New Year holidays, but on January 2nd and 3rd, Eikoh provides a special course called "正月特訓Vゼミ (Shogatsu Tokkun V Seminar)" for 9th graders, who are studying for the entrance exam.
Of course I had to attend that special seminar......yeah, actually I had no New Year holidays during my university days.
I had quit the job at Eikoh last March and had no work at New Year's Day!!
Then, I went shopping for 初売り (Hatsuuri; the first bargain sale of the year) after an interval of 5 years!
What made me surprised the most was the crazy crowded shops and a long long line of people waiting to pay.
...Just like a swarm of ants...(・o・;)
I don't feel like working at New Year's Day, but I found that being in crowds is much stressful than being at juku.
Well, being at home with family is the best at New Year's Day. (^□^;)
