What I've been up to (last month)

Posted by Kathryn Marshall on April 3, 2012 at 3:00 AM

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted. And to think I've been on Spring Break this whole time.8) Well, I guess I'd better write a quick update of the recent goings on here. First of all my house mate, Mary-Beth, reunited with her mom for a couple of weeks in Japan. Her mom came to japan to see her, of course, but to also explore the place that her daughter has been living in for the past 9 months. I tagged along with them on a couple of outings -- one of which was Tokyo. I got my picture taken in front of the 'Hachiko' statue (Have you seen the movie? If not I highly recommend that you do!), On top of the Tokyo Tower, the view was absolutely breath-taking! You could see Tokyo for miles around including Mt. Fuji. We visited a few shrines (I've NEVER seen such beautiful buildings or gardens (which surround the enormous structures), but as amazingly gorgeous as they were, both on the inside and out, it makes me sad to think that they were crafted in vain :(). Anyway, that's what I did over Spring Break -- no big deal .;)

4/3

Spring Break has ended and school has resumed. I'm actually really excited about it! I had my 8th grade students collaborate and do a radio broadcast project, which was due today. They performed so well! A+ for all! :D (I'm really proud of my students, in case you couldn't tell.)
