Lately I didnt write about my life here though,
finaly my friend asked me to keep write or not.
I was thinking to keep write or not though, now my life is not so rush
I can keep writeing also now I started to be interested in English again!
1 month ago ,I enjoyed cahtting on net with my friend who lives in Canada.
We didn't talk at all since maybe 2003 or 2002??
So It was fantastic time!
I hope we can make it to use Skype.
Now my skills of speaking , listening and writing are getting better.
It's time to study English again!

I m still continueing to listen Englisg every day from favorite DVD.
My favorite is "The Sex and city"
This is so useful to learn English!
I didnt take pictures a lot ,but enjoy them.

Sorry not write about me.

Oops,I need to write about Me !
You know ,I 've really been busy at New office in Sapporo.
My new office name is International Yamanote Kindergarten(IYK) .
It is written right here,my office are called "International"
but Not really.Almost of children are Japanese and speak Jananese.
We have a immersion classes by each grade level.
And I am a Homeroom teacher of Class 1 with foreigner teacher from Korea .
She leaned childeducation in Korean on top of that even in Canada.
She can speaks English well,we are team teaching.
I was hired as a immersion class Homeroom teacher but I realized later though.
You know my English is still not good to write,listen also speak,right?
It is very hard work to do chileren education with English also with Partner .meeting also.It'll take long time before educate.I have to write weekly plan in English and so on.But Not feel bad.I know it means my "Trytry season"
After passsing most hardest season,I will get great English skill ,right?
After 1year ?2year?still now I'm not sure ,But I look forward to be good English Speaker in my future.

That's why ,I 've been having most busiest season from April.
Every day I have many many things to do,I can't finish at work.
But I don't have some energy left after work . And then after dinner ,
I feel sleepy and sleep not realize usually on the sofa.
During April,I usually I got up at around 3:00 or 4:00 a.m..and work.
Because I had a dead line something to do.very short time not enough time.
I made many cards for immersion Class 1 of 3years old.
In May ,Finally Golden week vacation,I got a rest and meet my family and friends.As soon as starting work, I really didn't have my private time.
Not enough energy ,I know I forcussed my work.
I really go to bed early time.About around 8:30.I was not sure,
Though I don't think I go to bed,My eyes will close.
And I get up eally ,usually around 5:oo a.m.
Soon,I work and go to my office around 7:00.~7:30.
I have to get on the bus for children who comes by IYK bus.
When they go home ,also.
Aroun 3:00 p.m. I get on the bus again, and I am back around 4:15 p.m.
Until 5;10p.m. I prepare something and meeting with my partner.Cause she (most foreigner teachers ) go home at office hours.I don't have enough time to talk even have some coffee!!!! Most Japanese teacher works such cragy.
Unbelievable ,Every day I got new job again to write,make etc.
On top of that ,I work 3 days of Saterday a month.I felt I really needing rest! but now getting used to be here.
In May ,I had a opening class! this means Big Event ,like a show!
that's why I prepared for it for3 weeks.It seems like "Happyoukai"?!.
And now in July ,Everyone says most busiest season,because prepare for camping with children for 4days! and write Compitence Report and 3kinds of letteres.

Yesterday,I met my friend who lives in Kitami ,and had good time .
I slept well last night .I got up 10:00 .am. !
I 'll live an easy life and day today.
Thank you for reading,It's too long and seems like not happy story.
But Don't worry,It'll be happy after this season,I hope.
I really reallized that It was very important things me to leave Tokoro.
I've known that it is not easy in society to work and get money.
So I am experiencing of immersion class.But I really don't know what is immersion.Every day still now I am thinking What should I do?

I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooo SORY not to write for a long time !!!!!!
I will keep writing .
Could you kindly continue to keep in touch with me?

Thank you for reading.

Today,2006/3/5,Tokoro was lost to town name list in Hokkaido.
From today,we are Kitami city because of Tokoro town merged with Kitami.
The union of the 4 cities into one.We feel sorry a little bit.
And then adress and post number will change .
We must say I live in KItami not Tokoro.
I am confused a little.

Are you there?
Lately I talked with some people in tokoro about you.
We miss you so much!
I guess you miss us and Tokoro town.

Japanese team won to veteran Canada.
It was defeated at Canada in the Nagano Olympics before.
Therefore, it seems to be very glad.
The friend lives in Calgary in Canada. She lived in Japan for four years.
Perhaps, I think that she also was paying attention to this game. She loves Japan. Is it glad for Japan to win or not ?
