It didn’t seem quite appropriate to title this, “I gotta Dollar, I gotta Dollar…” When in Japan, do as the Japanese, right?
You may have inferred already that my job interview went GREAT. Couldn’t have gone better in most aspects. The unfortunate part? It isn’t full-time like I had originally thought. But, I accepted the position anyway because it will be a good experience and I think I will like the job.
Then, I came home and called a company I interviewed with earlier this month and I accepted that position, too.
Maria got two jobs today. Hip, Hip, Hooray!
One job starts at the beginning of next month. The other job doesn’t start until the beginning of December.
In some aspects, but certainly not the money one, I am glad to not be going straight from not working at all to being thrust into a full-time position. I’ll still have time to do the things I enjoy and I’m passionate about. Like exercising and blogging.
Now, onto today’s eats:
Amazingly yummy and satisfying bowl of cut up Nashi pear. Gosh this was so good.
Lunch consisted of leftover pasta from the other day that I added some fresh tomato to, a banana, and some water.
This tasted better today with the added tomato than it did when I first cooked it.
Grapes, chahan (Chinese fried rice), and water made up dinner tonight.
The grapes I find at the market here are just too good to be true.
Close up of the homemade chahan. J loves this and it is easy to make.
Tomorrow might be a little different in terms of my posts. I’m going to work with J and helping him with one of his lessons. His students are learning about food and how to order at a restaurant and who better to teach them than me… the fast food worker extraordinaire! As a teenager and college student I worked at a variety of fast food restaurants (pizza, subs, and hamburgers–pick your poison!) so I can give his students an authentic chance to see what it would be like to order food from someone in an American food establishment. It should be interesting, if nothing else!
That’s all for tonight folks. I am so exhausted and I still have a few work-related items that have to be taken care of before hitting the hay for tonight.
BUT! The mail just came (oh yes, the mail can run at 8:30 at night in Japan) and there’s a package here from Amazon.
