Today I finished up the last of the exams with which I'm associated. I only have five more classes over the next two weeks, and to the best of my knowledge, they're not actual lessons, they're for the purpose of handing back exams and going over answers. This means I will be spending a lot of quality time sitting at my desk occupying myself.

Starting March 18th, I'm taking off time for spring break (which, here, is the break between school years).

You have an early spring break! Mine's not until after the 25th. How long does it last? (I think mine's till April 7th or something.) Anyway, my schedule next week seems similar... so I'm wondering why I'm getting so much hassle for taking my vacation during this class downtime. It must be just habit. After all, whether I'm working or sitting at my desk doing nothing, my "attendance" is the important part, I guess.

(Ok, not *nothing*, but nothing work-related.)

Do you have to write or correct exams aside from the fairy tale class? Ever since you said that exams are made purposely difficult, I keep noticing it among teachers. Seems evil and discouraging. Then again, the high school entrance exams look shockingly difficult.

Technically, the closing ceremony for the year is the 24th. But I'm taking nenkyuu to go see mangaroo when she visits. There aren't any classes after the 17th, so there wasn't any problem.

I'm pretty sure the first day of classes is April 8th, though the teachers have to start showing up earlier than that.

I'm supposed to write a few questions for the first year students' exams and read the listening portion. Then I'm asked to grade any composition sections for the first and second years.

Hello there! I've been reading various things on your wonderful website and I came across your LJ. I'd be most interested to hear about the things you are up to at present, I hope you don't mind me adding you to my Friends list.

Quality time is always good - I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you, and I don't mind at all.
