05:58 pm: A student drew a picture of me
Therefore, since it's school-related, I am using this opportunity to exercise one of the acronyms I went to the trouble of looking up: GIP

P.S. The two kanji 「安晴」 are how my name is written in Japanese on my personal seal.

I didn't think it was galvanized iron pipe.

Was the picture favorable? I hate to tell you what my students have drawn or written about me. I just wash it off the desk or wall or wherever I find it.

Sometimes teachers need thick skin.

Love,
Mom

Did it not show up for you when you clicked to leave a comment? Just in case, I'll use it again here so you can see it.

She drew it in the little exchange diary notebook when she turned it in this week.

Thanks for putting it on again. It's coming up now. I don't know why I didn't see it the first time. None of the kanji are coming up, though. I'm just getting boxes where they should be.
They are so talented. It's really cute.
Love,
Mom

If you want to see the kanji, go up to your browser's "view" menu and go down to "encoding." Choosing "Unicode" should do it.

How cute is that????? I wonder if any of my kids have ever drawn me (they certainly doodle enough to)

I like your kanji name, too. Did they come up with it for you? I miss my old kanji name from Tokyo (芽里紗) but I saved my hanko.

The teachers in Niigata came up with it for me. They were originally going to go with 「安波呂」, which is a more literal pronunciation, but at the last minute they changed their minds because putting "calm/safe" together with "clear skies" seemed more aesthetically pleasing (even if it's pronounced "Ampare").

...In Moriyama they just wrote my name in katakana. That's no fun.

First Meredith, now you. Why don't my students ever draw cute pictures of me? :(

...In Moriyama they just wrote my name in katakana. That's no fun.
Mine too. (And it's Wyatt, no less. So is my nametag, which is why I refuse to wear it. I'm certainly not going to encourage people to call me Wyatt. >.<) Japanese people, though, seem to think katakana hanko are more impressive.

When I was at JCMU, the staff came up with kanji for my name while we were in caligraphy class. Only I don't remember what it was. ^_^; I should look it up when I go home and have a new hanko made.

I'm jealous. My hanko wasn't even in Katakana. Just 'Ann' in English. The Japanese people all thought it was extremely cool, but I felt ripped off.

The picture of you is very cute though.
