So, I finally got out of Nova. My very last day came, and although there was a tiny, tiny part of me that was sad to be leaving my coworkers and the few students that I had come to know well, I mostly felt like throwing a party.
There are few things as satisfying as leaving a job that you really despise.
Well, I mean, not despise. Don’t like is probably more accurate, but it doesn’t have the same ring to it. Oh man, I love leaving a job that isn’t right for me, especially when I already have a new one lined up. I left Nova, and I didn’t feel any remorse. Any.
Sayonara, Nova! I even took pictures. 🙂
I said goodbye to my coworkers, who were mostly awesome people. It’s not their fault that teaching English isn’t my calling.
The fun and nice staff, too. I felt bad because we were decently paid, but I was told that the office staff earned right around minimum wage, which was not even 1/2 of what we earned. Sadness.. 🙁 That’s so not fair.
The pink bunny was called the Nova usagi, and it was pretty scary. It wasn’t even a real bunny, but some sort of scary bunny/bird hybrid that got really angry, really quickly. I guess that it was pretty popular, though I have no idea why.
So.. yeah. ^o^;;;
Giant Nova usagis were EVERYWHERE.
We taught children’s classes in here. I liked those more than adult classes, except when we had kids that were basically just there to be babysat and did nothing but play. Those kids got really frustrating, really quickly.
Look, it’s me! I stretched the dress code as much as I could. I’m sure that they were glad to see me go.
Looking as bored as I felt!
Here’s the view out the window, seeing the North side of Seijogakuenmae station.
This sign says that we also teach other languages, like French and Spanish.
Yeah… not this branch.
Teacher’s lounge, the sacred space.
High level students that I taught quite a bit. We were doing a tongue twister that day.
I think, overall, that I could actually do a lot better job teaching nowadays, although I certainly gave it my all. If I had to go back to teaching for any reason, I think that I’d survive, but I don’t think that I’d be happy. Let’s hope that I fare better in life, and am able to spend my time on things that I love, instead. <3
See you all tomorrow! ^.^ Whew! I’m exhausted from working out today. But you know how it is!
