  • so this vlog will be a work week in  my life log as a teacher in Japan  

  • good morning it is Tuesday and it is my first  official full week of work going back to work  

  • and I am nervous so today I go back to the  junior high high school that I work at and I  

  • haven't seen the girls in about three months  now and it's been a while since I taught in  

  • front of like so many students not doing all  that confident and I got these mosquito bites  

  • Oh summers here is about 6:00 in the morningwoke up around 5:00 5:30 I'm ready for the gym  

  • so I'm going to wake up a little bit more  and then I'm going to head off to the gym

  • okay so I finished my job I finished my workout  I'm getting ready now I Jim is really nice they  

  • have showers they have shampoo with air  conditioner right now they're giving us  

  • pretty hydrogen water which I don't even know  what it does but I'm a little about free so but  

  • seriously what I'm saying is you want to do if you  guys know let me know because I don't know I guess  

  • I could look it up also all I'm wearing this new  dress which I'll show you guys in a second but I'm  

  • wondering it's sheer but I have a new kind of  slip dress and I'm using two underneath it and  

  • I'm still wondering if I'm gonna be perceived as  being too sexy because and he's a little bit of  

  • skin I show the girls are always like a little  sexy so like I was saying earlier it's my first  

  • time teaching anabolic well no not my first  time teaching because I've been teaching at  

  • the Jupiter and I've been doing online lessons  or did you do but it is my first time teaching  

  • at the high school in awhile I saw that we're  not allowed to do any kind of group activities  

  • or partner activities which is kind of gonna be  really a struggle for a conversational English  

  • class today's the first day back so I needlot of stuff I have like weird seeds binders  

  • I need my laptop so I can like you know give the  girls a class syllabus that I worked on I've been  

  • getting a lot of feedback from teachers that they  want this class to be more academic whatever that  

  • means but my my main priority is to make it fun  so they enjoyed learning English so they're not  

  • turned off from Italy so they don't freaking hate  English in the end right I am gonna not be able to  

  • play as many games I like to play like I like to  do like jeopardy or I played The Price is Right  

  • like I like to play like fun games where they're  using English so you don't really feel like  

  • they're learning but they actually are so this  is my friends see it's just a little bit sheer

  • and I think I look borderline matronly

  • okay so I cut back in the high schoolwhile ago my day was pretty good the students  

  • seemed like happy in good spirits some of them  greeted me as soon as they saw me it's so cute  

  • it's a so him that put me at ease a little bit  because it's just so nerve-wracking going back  

  • after three months and you just it's just like  speaking in front of so many students yeah I I  

  • can't describe it but it is nerve-racking every  time no matter how many times you do it I'm not  

  • necessarily co-teaching but I am dividing  the grade with another teacher so we have  

  • to work together and find a happy medium  with both of our teaching styles which is  

  • something that I'm not accustomed to yet so I'm  trying really hard I'm exhausted and I only had  

  • two classes tomorrow I have four classes  and kind of want to go to the convenient

  • okay so we were taking an evening  stroll and we got lost you know Oh  

  • goddamn neighborhood finally we're  going to mini stop we don't go to

  • this week I had my camera because I was showing  you guys a week in my life oh I also have like  

  • a bottle of water so it's really really heavy  anyways that being said my back hurts so I may  

  • not be going to the gym today I think I have  to give myself a little bit of a break because  

  • I kind of just went full-on work way back to my  old schedule carrying a heavy bag doing the gym  

  • in the morning use easier good good morning babe  morning now it's about 8:00 in the morning but  

  • I slept in quite a bit I'm doing some editing  now I do have a private lesson on Skype this

  • with my private lesson students so I have him  choosing either between employees can work at  

  • home forever or black lives matter protests take  place worldwide I'm hoping he takes the black  

  • lives matter won just because and it's a little  bit more current and I'm sure we can have plenty  

  • of good conversations upon it so my work doesn't  start today until around 4:30 so we can do some  

  • other stuff today before work let's do that dead  after hit the cameras y'all good night on meeting  

  • once a night daddy chillin I'm missing me God  get bone daddy only Sanders kidding me okay so  

  • I've been working out might come across video  and I don't like it I'm not feeling it and it's  

  • hard for me to finish so now I need to eat we're  gonna make salami great rolls by the way these  

  • are keto friendly lettuce we have salami salami  and we have processed cheese to like it or not

  • good money okay so I'm at my Saturday job I went  to the gym this morning and I didn't really feel  

  • like him again hi Goody's music a yogi so yeah as  I was saying I'm at my Saturday job now I worked  

  • out I didn't really feel the need to film that  again for you guys and today's a very busy day  

  • right now it's about 9:30 in the morning and  my first class is at 10:30 and I don't leave  

  • here until 9:30 at night so I work for about 12  hours today of course not including my lunch break  

  • today's the money day today is the exhausting  day my first class is kindergarten and I finish  

  • with a higher level of English students higher  level students I don't really need to do much  

  • prep work because my assistants do the prep work  so it's really nice I've been doing this for now  

  • three years I'm pretty used to the routine of it  and the flow of things you know I've been here  

  • for quite a bit now and the first couple years of  being in Japan was really enjoyable I was having  

  • a lot of fun being here I didn't put too much  stress on learning the language partly because  

  • my jobs required me to speak English and they  frown upon not only found a pond like you can  

  • get in pretty like unless a serious trouble but  a good amount of trouble at your job if you're  

  • using Japanese not even using like well spoken  English they're using very simple English for  

  • the past couple years no Japanese point being is  that I need to step up my Japanese game because  

  • it's becoming a little bit embarrassing about how  much I'm unable to speak listening is quite good  

  • but speaking the output is not quite there so  I want to focus more on studying Japanese and I  

  • think it's important for me to know Japanese since  my husband is Japanese and I might be living here  

  • for a while knowing the language in Japan gives  you a lot more power you feel a little bit more  

  • in control of your future you don't have to  constantly ask people for help also I wanted  

  • to show you some of the stuff that I have here  at this location at the school because I teach  

  • a lot of younger children on Saturn so I keep  a lot of my materials games and whatnot here  

  • so I thought I could show you guys that so I have  two boxes here all this stuff I brought them home  

  • because I live here two days out of the week  it's kind of junky though sorry stickers that  

  • I give to the kids if they're doing well it's  really junky Oh last week I did tanking with  

  • one of my students we painted a picture of our  family that was fun I have this box of origami  

  • paper sometimes if we finished a lesson early  the students are no the lesson pretty well they  

  • know the materials I you know have free time  with them I could do things like whatever they  

  • want origami this I got at Flying Tiger by the  way Flying Tiger is where you want to shop for  

  • games and materials for your lessons it's not  as cheap as die so you could go to Daiso or any  

  • other 100 yen shop but Flying Tiger has a little  bit more unique stuff and still very affordable

  • I think I'm going to end the vlog here  just because by the end of the day I'm  

  • gonna be so exhausted I know I'm gonna forget  to fill and say goodbye to you guys so I want  

  • to say goodbye to you now this vlog is already  probably pretty long but it's a very accurate  

  • depiction of my work week here in Japan as  an English teacher I hope you guys enjoyed
