So as predicted, blogging has taken a hit because of NaNoWriMo. At the same time, not much has been going on in life. So for now, I will share some random , short school stories!
One day I was in charge of teaching 3rd graders at my Tuesday elementary school. This is a bit uncommon because I’m usually teaching 5th graders. Anyways, the first time around was a bit difficult because some of the classrooms were kinda bratty. I was caught by surprise so I was a bit worn out. In one of the noisy classes, a little girl walked up to me and asked me if I had someone I liked. This is a pretty common question; I usually answer honestly and if they want more intimate details, I stop them. Anyways, I tell her no and then she runs off. Once class was over, she runs up to me again and gives me a tiny piece of paper. Confused at what it was, I began to open it when she started freaking out and told me that I absolutely could not read it right now! I looked at her and she said “Read it in the office.” At this moment, I pretty much knew what it was. Still, I played along and promised I wouldn’t read it until then.
When I got to the staff room, I opened the note. As predicted, it was a “love” letter. Here is what it looks like:
It says Watashi no koto ga suki desu ka? which translates to “Do you like me?” It was very cute and it cheered me up. I keep it in my wallet to this day. Sadly I don’t remember which girl it was (I have lots of classes) but maybe that’ s a good thing… I don’t want to break her heart, haha.
