Catching Up and More

04 Mar shonakamori No Comments »

I feel like ever since the Japanese team left  last week, I’ve been playing catch up with my work.  It was tough given that my weekend was filled up with a judging assignment.  However, I’m happy to say that I’m finally caught up (maybe even ahead)!

On the gym end, training has been going really well.  I think it was great that I got the chance to train with the Japanese guys while they were here.  It was refreshing to be able to train with some new people and I think that led to some rejuvenation in my workouts.  I can’t wait to be able to see them in future events again!

On an unrelated note, today (or yesterday in Japan) was “Girl’s Day” (it’s called “Hinamatsuri” in Japan), therefore, I decided to do a special lesson for my tutoring session for the kids that I teach Japanese to (for those of you that don’t know I’ve been a private tutor for quite some time now).  The mother of the kids, even brought home a “Girl’s Day” cake and we had a fun time!

Girl's Day Cake!

At the end of the lesson, the kids asked me an interesting question, which I could not answer.  If someone has an answer to this please let me know.  Why is there a designated girl’s day but no day to celebrate just the boys.  While May 5th generally celebrates the boys, the official holiday groups boys and girls together and calls it “Children’s Day.”
