Handsome student: Are you still a university student?
Me: Oh do I look that young?! I graduated a long time ago. How old do you think I am?
S: Oh really? Hmmm below 25. 🤔
Me: *giggles* I’m older than you, actually. I’m 33!
S: WOW. YOUNG SENPAI! 😳

Started working again today even though my PLDT connection hasn’t been restored; according to my sister, we’ve had no signal since Monday. I survived 3.5 hours’ worth of demo lessons and 17 actual lessons by using my Smart Bro LTE pocket Wi-Fi! I already purchased add-ons, but I hope that PLDT can sort things out ASAP. Anyway, in other news, my demo lesson partners earlier were amused with Skype’s blur background feature. They actually thought I used a separate application for it, hehe.
*ngingiti-ngiti, pero deep inside, gigil na sa PLDT hahahuhu

First time to have a student who has a pet parrot. She said Mutan is from the Philippines, but speaks only Nihonggo. 😅🇯🇵🇵🇭

Me, normal, steady voice: Hello! My name is KC, and I’ll be your teacher today!
Student, in a car: Hi, KC! I’m with my friend, he’s driving! *shows his friend*
HANDSOME friend: Hello!
Me, switches to a pa-cute, slightly high-pitched tone: Hajimemashite! Konnichiwa!
Friend: Ahh Nihongo jōzu ne!
Me, kilig: Arigatou! *bows*
We continued talking until they reached the friend’s house. I learned that cutie pie-san is an orthopedist, but he also has a YouTube channel meant to help people gain confidence. He uses a mask in his videos, though… Anyway, we ended the class with a hearty “kan(m)pai”! 🍺😁

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*
