Power interruption at around 3:40 pm: laptop at 70%, pocket Wi-Fi at 100%. I had a class until 5:25, but thankfully the last student was absent. I had just 35 minutes to find a way to conduct my 6-11:55 pm classes! Google led me to The Mastermind Hub Coworking Space, just 5 or so minutes away from my house! HUHU SAVIOR!!!! First time to use a co-working space, and I’m so relieved!!! What a way to start a new month! Jusmiyo!!! BETTER THAN COFFEE!!!!

p.s. yey for unli coffee, water, and Internet!!!



2019 Project 365, Day 212: What Would You Do?

Situation: Haru is insisting Lorenzo to go swimming, but he doesn’t know how to swim, so he just wants to take photos on the beach. Haru was shocked.
Question: Imagine you’re Haru. What will you do next?

My adult students always say they’d still go swimming, and frankly, I would, too! 😅✌️ But my kids? They give such sweet answers!

Kid 1: Stay with Lorenzo. He’s my friend!
Kid 2: No swim! So he won’t alone.
Kid 3: Hmmm I will teach swimming! 🏊‍♂️

I really love the Young Learners program! 🥰#WeAreRareJob

13-yo kid, after our 3rd lesson: Do you teach tomorrow?
Me: Ah, yes.
K: Ah eto… tomorrow lesson.. ano.. 13 o’clock?
Me: Oh, do you want me to open a lesson tomorrow at 1 in the afternoon?
K: Yes! I learn English, but you talk Japanese. And fun!
Me: Just sukoshi (a little). But thank you, student-kun!
K: I like you. Mommy also. *mommy waves and shows me their cat, Mi-chan*

2019 Project 365 Day 181: June – Finito

Done for June! Also with 12.5 hours’ worth of demo lessons. 🙂 My 2 unbooked slots are a 207 and a closed one. I last had those kinds of slots in June 2017 and May 2018 respectively. July will be a vacation month for me, so I’ll set my goal to probably just 200-250. ☺️ #WeAreRareJob



2019 Project 365, Day 164: Pleasant Surprises

A 207 is a paid slot due to technical problems & is like a rare Pokémon for me. The last time I had one was on June 6, 2017! Weee pleasant surprise! 😍 After a few minutes, another welcome surprise came (because I need to rest haha), a closed slot! I can’t remember the last time I had one!
