Just say "No" to chicken pox!

Well, we have moved onto the second of ten levels in the school year. Crazy how fast the first six weeks of school went. I am adjusting to my new class a little bit. I am starting to feel like they are my kids a little bit more each week, I think. I will be headed home in about 17 days. I can not wait. I think that it will be something that I really need - a breath of fresh air. However, I know that it will be incredibly hard to leave and come back to Japan.

Last night a bunch of us went to Cirque Du Soleil. It was incredible! We even got to go backstage and see where they practice - some of them were working on their jumps and such. It was pretty cool. The strength that they all have is amazing.

My birthday was this month. It was a pretty good week. Lots of good food, good friends, hanging out at parks, going downtown. Although, turning 26 really wasn't much fun. 26 just seem SO old! One of the boys in my class has the same birthday as me. When I asked him how old he was that day and he said, "6" it hit me that I was 20 years older than him! 20! Wow. Old.

Things are about to get busy here. Ha..not that they haven't been busy all along. But, things are about to get extra busy.
Chicken pox has hit Immersion. I'm freaking out a little. I only got part one of the two-part shot a few years ago. So, I'm not sure how effective it will be. I am going to try to go and get vaccinated here in a few days, but until then I just have to pray that I don't get it! I don't have time for it! Not to mention I don't want a million little itchy red bumps all over my body! I have been paranoid about it..just ask my co-workers! Haha.
