The 2008 school year is off to a BLAH start for me.
This morning was the "nyugakushiki", or school entry ceremony for the new students at one of my junior high schools. I have an intense dislike (avoiding the word hate) for all Japanese school ceremonies. They always involve sitting for a long time in a very, very cold gym and feeling incredibly awkward.
I always feel very much like an outsider, and kind of clueless about what to do next.
Today was no different. Ah, can you tell I'm in a mood??
