Yesterday, we ventued into Yamapi world.
We had avoided this collab room up until now because it’s more expensive per 30 minutes than regular rooms, and you have to reserve per 30 minutes, no free time. We usually go for freetime, but this time since we were only planning on staying for two hours, we decided to give it a try.
So, I am now 33 years old! Both the numbers in my age are the same for a year. Well, actually my birthday was on Monday, but it took me this long to actually have time to post a blog about it. I don’t really pay much attention to ages, but I do try and pay attention to my birthday, because I figure it only happens once a year. I was really happy to be wished happy birthday by so many people on Twitter and Facebook even when it had only been my birthday for a few seconds. I have such awesome friends.
I had decided to work on my birthday this year even though I usually take it off, because I had only two classes on my schedule, and both had good kids who I knew wouldn’t make me too stressed. I was right, too. The second class I taught now only has one student, and he’s one of the most enthusiastic, smart kids I’ve ever met. He’s in 6th grade doing a level that is generally meant for 8th graders, and does it far more easily than a lot of the 8th graders I’ve had doing the class. Although he complains that he’s tired a lot, he still always trys his best. I was perfectly happy to teach him on my birthday.
Going back to before work though… Since my classes didn’t start until 6.15, I decided to go and sit at the BoyMen cafe for a while so my birthday wouldn’t seem like a complete waste. I bought three drinks (two colas, since I’m addicted, and an onion gratin soup), and this was how it went:
Trust Tamura to appear on my birthday. I was pretty happy to get Masaru, although how I managed to get three out of five of the Yankee 5 members in one go I’m not sure. To this day I still don’t have Honda, though.
Also, I took some pictures of the new summer display in the BoyMen shop, where the BOYS AND MEN guys decorated caps, and the Kenkyusei decorated shoes.
I love that Setsura just decorated his shoe like a sneaker. And, I took a closeup of Rikuto’s because I was impressed by how much effort he put into drawing all of those scales.
