And how could I forget this reason I just LOVE Japan: All My Children!!

Tomorrow is graduation day for my seniors. This is the first graduating class I’ve actually known since they started Junior high school 3 years ago. We started about the same time so we’ve gotten pretty damn close.

I’m sad to see them go…

One of my favorites, J, asked me to write her a good bye message. I wrote her the following:

Dear J,

First of all, I want to say congratulations! You did it! You’ve graduated and have gotten into the high school of your choice. Subarashii desu ne!!! I’m very proud of you.

I know you will achieve all of your dreams. There will be many challenges along the way, but don’t be afraid. If you work hard and do your best good things will result. Your positive energy will attract good people to your side and they will aid you as you learn and grow.

I have a lot of confidence in you and I expect great things from you. I remember how hard you worked in our classes and especially during the Speech contest. I cried, not because you did not come in first place but because it was beautiful to see you giving your all. In life there will be as many failures as successes so never be afraid to fail. The only thing to fear is not trying.

So, keep going as you are and you will certainly accomplish wonderful things! Make many friends and keep them close. Friends are very important…these are the people you choose to share your life with so choose wisely.

Please contact me anytime you wish, My email is: locohama7@gmail.com

It will make me very happy to hear of your progress in life.



She told me it is her treasure…

Geez, these kids are so damn lovable.

Anyway, today was the senior party (no, not like a prom…more like a variety show). The kids perform dance or comedy routines, or sing. The teachers perform too. I did Rapper’s Delight a capella. It was a big hit (sorry no video yet)

Here are some of the highlights…


Aren’t they the cutest things? Umaku nai no?

What’s a party without a little Cosplay?

Well, I have more but that’s it for now…

I’m gonna need a lot of tissue this week…

Loco lite (-;   (Taste great, less filling)

    Loco ,

    You should be happy ( I think you told them how live is and what they can expect.a little bit of your knowledge and experience is what they need. the rest is fore them to find out .), but if you like them so much then you did a hell of a job….

    Its time to let thing go and be a proud Teacher!!

    also great dancing from the first vid.

    Thanks Jinroh! Will do. Do we have a great job or what?
    Mo.nl-san, thanks for the shout! Yep you’re right. I should feel proud…I do Kinda, but maybeI’ve picked up some modesty living here. (-: It’s in the air, in the water and the food.

    Reasn2–I’m afraid that recording of my performing rappers delite is ery poor quality. i look like Wesley Snipes wearing sunglasses singing in a closet (It’s too dark I mean hehehe) anyway, I’m going to karaoke tomorrow night with my co-workers and I’ll be sure to do it, record it and upload it for your listening pleasure (at leasty I hope so)(-:

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
