Wow, I didn't realize I had taken so long to post! I thought it had only been a week, but apparently it has been much longer! I haven't even read anyone else's blogs recently- I usually keep up those at the least.
February has turned out to be quite a busy month for me. Sister landed her first modeling job. It was such an awesome experience for both of us. She was supposed to have only 2 changes of outfits- they ended up doing 4 with her- I guess they really liked her. She got to wear Christian Dior. Christian Dior! I don't think I will ever have that experience. I can't wait for the magazine to come out in March. It would be awesome if she makes the cover- but I am trying not to get my hopes up. For all I know this will be her only modeling job- so we millked it for all its worth. :) I will definitely post the pictures here once I get my paws on the magazine.
I am finally going to start teaching English. My neighbor is moving and is handing over her students to me. I am very excited! I am starting with two of them this week. I have met most of the students- they are all such sweet ladies- ranging from 20 to 50 years of age. Of course now I have to do a super scrub on my house since most of the lessons will take place in my living room. But that is a good thing for me. Its called MOTIVATION. And of course getting paid in cash- Yen- is a good thing. The exchange rate is about 88 yen to the dollar- so getting paid in Yen is the way to go right now.
I did my first Compass presentation last week and I did alright! Compass, if you aren't sure what it is, is a Navy Spouse Mentoring program. We do classes for new spouses, though we tend to get a lot of "experienced" spouses as well. We had some really nice ladies in our class. I was very nervous about presenting and was regretting signing up to do so. But after it was over with, I was glad I did it. Now I have a better idea of what to do next time. I guess that is how things like that go?
Spring is in the air, though we have been getting some snow. But I saw some plum tree blossoms yesterday- that gave me hope. The plum blossoms are the first sign of spring around here. The Cherry blossoms follow. I am so excited for that! I promise to post lots of pictures!!
I must go. But I leave with a promise to not drop off the Earth like I did this last month.
