So as the title of the entry suggests, the kiddos are all back in school. As an ALT that means that my free time is far more limited. I will still be drawing in my free time at home. But the opportunities to get on the scanner to post said pictures might be more rare. I will, of course, keep you guys all posted via my status updates if I'll have time to post any or not.
Generally I will not be able to post on weekends. For those in the states, that means Friday and Saturday for you. And Mondays and Tuesdays (with the occasional Wednesdays) are my busiest days in terms of classes. On Thursdays, I teach at elementary school so that means absolutely no updates then. When I teach at elementary school, I don't have computer access at those schools. Not that that really means anything as usually I teach back to back classes of little munchkins. Adorable little munchkins, of course. The best chances for updates from me will be on Friday
. I usually only have a handful of classes and tons of free time.
This is all hypothetical though. School holidays (that are very different from western holidays) can mess my schedule up. I may suddenly have free time on days I usually don't. Or in the case of today, I lose the free time I thought I would have. I'm actually getting an extra class to teach today because the Typhoon yesterday cancelled afternoon classes.
We also have Sport's Day starting up soon. Which is like Field Day in America. The kids compete against each other in a school wide sport's competition in foot races or the like. Sometimes they have tug-o-war as well. Each school is a little different.
Last year my school had a Sport's Day, a ton of my classes were cancelled and I had nothing to do. Which might be the case this year too. Or not. But I'll keep you informed if it does.
And yes, after four years of absence, I do lack a paid account. I could purchase a new one, but I don't like how expensive the core memberships are. And if I were to purchase one, I would have to use my credit card. I don't suspect they'd like me to pay in yen. So I opted out of purchasing one. However I do hope to get one again in the future. As the ads really drive me crazy.
I am accepting point donations. Of course, I can only give shout outs as thanks. Maybe in the future, when I have free time and a scanner or photoshop again- I'll set up commissions. But as of right now, I am accepting donations
. I am not accepting art trades, requests or commissions.
