Don't Mind Me; Just Passin' Through

Expatriate from the Pacific Northwest in the US; currently stationed in Japan as a middle school JET. My Tumblr is for my fandom itches, with little spiels about teaching and life in Japan, and life in general. I'm a lesbian, so generally I'll bring up some queer stuff.

Any questions? Please ask away.

Blissful Ignorance

Friend and I:
*walk into McDonald's and see three of my male students*
Friend:
It must be nice actually knowing enough Japanese to understand what your students are saying.
Me:
No, it's actually terrible.
Friend:
Why? I'd love to understand my elementary students better.
Me:
Have you listened to teenagers in your own country recently? Their conversations are completely moronic and uninteresting.
Friend:
I suppose, but it still must be useful sometimes.
Me:
Well yeah, but right now they're just talking about how to get the girls' attention by stretching grandiosely and flashing their iPhone's to show how "rich" they are.
Friend:
... ugh.
Me:
Sometimes I'd rather just live in ignorance.

So I may be starting an English revolution by accident in my community
