September means that school is back in session–second term has officially begun. And in Japan that means a ceremony and speech, because it’s really important to always have ceremonies and speeches. Here we have a photo of the principal at my largest school bequeathing unto these middle schoolers some sort of wisdom that I totally didn’t listen to because it’s all in Japanese, and really, my Japanese is ooookaaaay-ish, but not good enough for that speech.
I also just tend to space out on speeches that don’t pertain to me directly. So yeah. Didn’t teach any classes that day. Nor the following. Students are testing.
