It’s strange being in a country where no one is making a tribute to the importance of today.
In other news, there is a typhoon coming this weekend. This will be Jen and I’s first typhoon, and we just have to make sure we have enough food for a few days. Typhoon days are like snow days back in Nashville. It’s a good thing when everyone shuts down the schools and their businesses because they don’t ever take time off.
I fixed the washing machine! It was leaking water from the water supply valve, and luckily there’s a convenient hardware store down the block where I bought a new pipe and now it works! According to Jen, I am the “man” in this house, since I fix things with my toolkit from Ikea, and Jen stays home and cleans the house (because she gets home earlier than I do).
I have been pretty exhausted lately. The school keeps adding hours for me, and now I’m up to 22 a week with tutoring plus a couple more, it seems like, in the next week. And I’m also tutoring my aunt and uncle for four hours a week. Here is my weekly schedule (so far):
Tuesday: 4:40-6:10pm, Tutoring 8-10pm
Thursday: 2:45-5:50pm, Tutoring 8-10pm
Now add about two hours of commute time to every day, and I’m officially wiped out by the end of the week. However, the money is good, and this is the time to be making as much as I can. So be it.
