It doesn't feel like we've only been back for a week. We've easily slid back into the groove. Classes are going well, we're enjoying walking again, and Ben and I are fighting with our air conditioner (it screams at us... we can't decide whether 34 degrees (93 F) is hot enough to tolerate the very loud screeching noise it makes).
Tonight we went to English club, it was great to see all our friends, and we got to meet two new people. They are both ALTs in town. One of them has been in Japan for a long time, he speaks Japanese, and knows what he's doing. The other is brand new, and speaks less Japanese then me.
I'm excited for this new trimester.
