Last weekend was fun! Leslie, Anna, Lilith and I went to Disney Sea to celebrate Leslie's birthday. Japan is the only place that has a Disney Sea park, so it was cool to get the chance to go to a Disney Park that I hadn't experienced yet. The park was divided into a number of worlds that included Disney worlds, like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, as well as real life places like 1920s New York and renaissance Italy. I think one of the coolest things about the park was the giant volcano in the middle, which actually erupted fire every so often. We didn't get to go on all of the rides, but we did go on some fun ones like Journey to the Center of the Earth (which was inside the volcano) and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I'd definitely like to go back again when the weather's nicer to check out some of the rides we missed.

This week I finished up teaching my last classes of the semester at work. There's still about a month of school left for the kids, but after finals I pretty much don't have much to do until the new school year actually starts. Finals start this week, so by the end of the week I'll have all of the grading to do. It's kind of a pain, but at least it's something to do as opposed to having nothing constructive to do (which is going to happen a lot over the next month or so).

I went to Kuki yesterday to meet up with Elly and a couple of the other Saitama JETs to celebrate Elly's birthday. We went to a show at Kuki's tiny planetarium and hung out and Elly's place. Her husband cooked dinner for us and Elly had made a delicious vanilla orange fondant cake for dessert. It was nice to see some of the other JETs. I don't live close to many of them, so I don't often hang out with them. I couldn't help feeling slightly out of place in the group though, just because it's clear that they all hang out with each other more than I do. Not that it matters that much though. I have my own friends group that I always hang out with and I'm quite comfortable with. I wouldn't change that.

I opted to stay home today to save a bit of money and take the opportunity to relax a bit. I've got a bunch of stuff to do coming up over these next two weeks, most notably the five concerts that I'll be going to! That'll be a new record for me (for most concerts in the shortest period of time). It starts on Tuesday night when I'm going to go see Buck-Tick with Aki. Then, this next weekend I'll be seeing exist+trace and Mejibray. April's even going to the exist+trace show, too! The weekend after that I'll be seeing my bbs Miyavi and GazettE again. I'm quite excited about all of it! I just want it to come faster! My next entries are probably mostly going to be concert reports, so be on the lookout for that.
