忙しい

That would be the word for these past few weeks: 忙しい (isogashii), which simply means “busy”.

Two weeks ago I played tour guide to my friend, and this past week I’ve been worrying about writing papers for an English Grammar class as well as worrying about my jazz live this weekend. I’m actually behind one paper in that class, but I don’t know when I’m going to catch up, what with the live on Saturday followed shortly after by a trip to Shobara with my host family to a kagura festival. Then again, classes here are terrible for my work ethic, as when I turned in a late paper the teacher said something equivalent to, “Take your time.” When I get back from Shobara I’ll need to do laundry and as much homework as I can get in, because then classes and practice for the new jazz band will start. Apparently we’ve landed one more chance to play.

Not to mention I recently started playing Pokemon Yellow. What a refreshing flood of nostalgia.

I suppose I could get something accomplished tonight, but I’m rather brain-dead from a full 5-periods’ worth of mind-numbing classes. A quirky game with the  foreigners and some fireworks with the first Japanese, male visual kei fan I’ve met, hot pink hide-inspired hair included, seems much more appealing.

Not that I’m actually complaining so much. As a typically good student, I feel slightly stressed out at how slow I’ve been at writing papers about my own mother-tongue, but aside from that I welcome the lack of free time. My time in this country is running out quickly. If I’m given time to think about it, I get kind of down. I want to live every day to the fullest!

今から頑張ります!!
