Weekend Update

[Taylor]

Overall, we had a nice, low key weekend.  Julie and I brought some green tea and homemade chocolate chip cookies to Go Club on Saturday.  It was also a tournament day so we took pictures in between matches.  I returned to the club Sunday afternoon.  I usually don’t go two days in a row but since it had been so two weeks since my last visit I decided it would probably be a good idea to get in some extra practice.  It worked.  On Sunday I made noticeable improvement even if I still found myself making some very embarrassing mistakes.

I’ve been playing 1 kyu player a lot lately.  Like most of the players in the club he is given the maximum handicap when we play (I get 9 stones on the board to start the game).  Our games have become closer and I even managed to pull off a victory on Sunday.  If I can keep this up and drop the handicap to 8 stones, that’ll mean I’ve entered the single digit kyu rank and achieved a huge personal goal.

Anyway, aside from Go we mostly had a relaxing weekend that included watching movies and a bit of spring cleaning.  We also found time to Skype with our family which was very lovely.

Looking ahead to the next few weeks, we’ll be busy.  Both Julie and I need to pick up official Japanese driver’s licenses since our international permits expire in August.  We’ll also be recording listening tests for the Aomori Prefecture Board of Education in a few weeks.  Additionally, our two year anniversary is right around the corner.  We’ll be going on a short, fun weekend trip but I need to keep the location secret for now.

    Are you worried Shichinohean hooligans will crash your party?

      Ha! No, Julie just likes surprises is all.

      Speaking of crashing parties, we’re thinking about having a movie night in Noheji on Saturday. Feel free to join us.

    Good luck for your driver’s test and recording listening test.

    This month I have many seminars for new teachers. They are hard, but I can learn many things.
