Today and tomorrow I have no classes, since the students are all off doing club things. After I sat at my desk reading and typing on my laptop for a few hours, the vice-principal told me that I have one day left of "special holiday vacation allowance." This special allowance is only good through the 31st, so it's either use it or lose it. He suggested that I take the afternoon off both days, seeing as how I have nothing better to do, so that's what I did.
I returned home at lunchtime to find that I had received an email from gnine saying that she would be working in a neighboring town today, so I made arrangements to see her after work. (This meant staying up past my bedtime, but I only have a half day and no classes tomorrow, so I reasoned it wouldn't be too bad.) I met her in Minami Kusatsu and we went out for sushi at a restaurant near the station. We chatted for about an hour before she had to catch a train back home. Hopefully we'll get a chance to meet up again soon.
