1. Managed to get 4 steps today instead of three, but it was not worth it. I just finished a minute ago and it was a crappy showing on that last one. Ah, well. I continue to be the All-Knowing when it comes to differentiating between on and kun readings and the All-Failing when it comes to figuring out what it wants when it offers me just the reading. Unless it's the kun reading and then I am there.

2. Day I Have Lost Count But That Is What My Sticker Chart Is For out of 28 of no Coca Cola. I would give anything to have one right now.

3. Tomorrow is 'Divvy-Up the ALT' Day, when all the teachers come to the BoE and figure out who gets me when for the next two months or so (until the end of the school-year).

I got the basic school schedule this afternoon, which tells me when the holidays (the official ones, not including the ones the students get off extra*) are and when graduation is. There was immediate consternation because they had told me that the junior high graduation would be on one day and all three elementary schools would be on another day. There was much discussion because they wanted me to go to the biggest elementary school, where I don't know most of their names and would be lost in a sea of parents. I wanted to go to one of my smaller schools, because 1) I do know all of the sixth graders names and 2) I actually like them.

In the end I couldn't decide which small school to choose over the other, so I resigned myself to the larger school's graduation ceremony and writing cards for my smaller school students.

In reality, the big school graduation is on one day, the smaller schools' on another. So now I really do have to pick one. Blast.

*Sidenote - I wish I had figured this out sooner during the fall term. I go to the junior high on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday depending on the schedule (which I don't learn until the Friday of the week before) - and sometimes they have random days off, like if they have a weekend festival or event. If I know in advance, I can arrange some three-day weekends for myself without inconveniencing anyone.
