Ouch, my feet (and legs) STILL hurt!
Actually, I'm aching all over today - but I have a sore throat too, so maybe it's not all down to yesterdays energetic teaching. The headmistress actually said she was worried I'd wear myself out - like, no shit!
Today I was stressed. Super-stressed. Tomorrow I have an apartment inspection, in order to get my deposit back, etc, so today I got up really early to scrub things like balcony doors (not fun), extractor fan in kitchen (definately not fun -especially after, er, 3.5 years of not getting around to cleaning it!), doing washing, etc.
Left home late. Got wrong train. Except it wasn't wrong train but I only realised AFTER I'd got off and it had left... Waited AGES for the next one - and finally got to the school I was covering in about a minute before my first lesson. Did two trial lessons - both of who signed - yay me, I get a whole extra 1,000 yen in my pay pack - and realised that pretty much all of my schedule had changed since yesterday.
Realised I still have no idea what I'm meant to do with my rented modem - and I keep forgetting to dig out the phone number to check.
Realised I should have sent information to head office about what I was leaving in the apartment - two weeks ago.
Realised I probably won't be able to afford to go away for Golden Week.
Realised I still have a fuck of a lot to actually do before Sunday. And I really wanted to arrange for the removal guy to come earlier so I could make the Earth Day Festival in Yoyogi Park. I'm dithering as to whether I'll be ready for him if I change the time though.
AND realised that I'd parked my bike in a 'cage' that is locked at 10.30pm and, thanks to being given the wrong information about my schedule, there was no way I was going to make it back in time and I was worried about the consequences as it was in the 'wrong' place. Luckily, my lovely neighbour was able to rescue my bike (she recognised it by it's dents, when I emailed her to ask. But then again, I recognise it by it's dents too when I'm hunting for it.)
In short, I had a major stress-out today.
Tomorrow I fear will be worse as I have to:
- get up early to do stuff to my apartment before the inspection at 10am
- rush and do a 40-minute demo lesson in a house with four 4-year olds
- leg it over to check exactly what is in the new place so I know what to leave/take from here
- hurry to another place to do a test resit
- and finally dash to do my evening class - at 6pm.
Gimme strength - and take away my aches and sore throat please!
Oh - AND I cut myself shaving my leg. Luckily it didn't bleed all over the crummy carpet I'm hoping they won't charge me wear and tear for!
