I've finally decided to get off my ass and start earning some money. Im working at a school in Vashi, it's been slightly over a month since i started and i must say im enjoying it. I teach english to a bunch of creative, slightly mad, absolutely boisterous bunch of 4th graders. I teach the 7th grade too. Next post, i'll put up some poems written by my 4th grade students. They impress me so much :)

You Are Ariel!
Headstrong and fiesty. You have a mind of your own that's full of romantic dreams about the world around you. Exploring exotic places is your ultimate dream, and although you can be a little naive you'll realize that there is something to be gained from your family's wisdom.
Which Disney Princess Are You?
I’m pretty bored which is why I’m sitting here typing out this meaningless rant. It’s quite dark and gloomy outside. No, it isn’t raining right now but it constantly seems like its going to rain. It just started raining. I DO NOT like the rains. It almost depresses me. Almost. I enjoy it sometimes, especially when there is a good breeze to back up the pitter-patter of the raindrops. I like a good heavy shower, only when im sitting snug and safe at home, not having to worry about my toes getting wet and dirty thanks to the drops that spatter the mud on my feet. Speaking of feet, I need to buy some footwear that will protect my delicate feet from the harsh rains. Yeah they also should have a good grip, I fall easy. To get new rain shoes, one must brave the dirty streets and endure mud splattered toes. Sigh.
I’m bored. Did I mention that already???
I wake up in the morning wondering if I will be eating food made at home or if I will end up ordering from a nearby restaurant. Neither of the choices are very appetizing. I’m a horrible cook and the restaurants near my place suck! So I usually make do with whatever takes my fancy at around noon. (Today it was the pure unparalleled delight of home cooked food… and for once, it wasn’t too bad!)
Once that’s done I try to decide which manga I ought to read. Seeing that I’m up-to-date with the 3 that I follow religiously, I look up wikipedia for plots of the other ones, choose one or three I find interesting and read those… usually all of them simultaneously. Yeah, I end up getting the stories and characters a bit confused some of the time, but what the heck, I get the hang of it anyway. At present I’m planning to read ‘thousand years of snow’ which is a shoujo or shojo manga (aimed at girls - I think it’ll turn out to be a romance where the male characters look as pretty as or prettier than the female characters) , ‘uzumaki’ which is about a town obsessed with spirals and ‘ichigo 100%’ which I think is about a guy obsessed with finding a girl he seen wearing strawberry printed panties. Yeah, these Japanese really come up with some weird story lines.
Now that I’m slightly less bored, I’m gonna go read the manga think about the new shoes I’m gonna get myself.
