After last night giving up on the remix project my mind was running away with all the new ideas and projects I can now start! I must be mad – but I have some great ideas!
So the plan was to take things easy today and get some rest before all the workshops I’ll be leading this month. But it took me till 6PM to just get through my admin stuff! ( Which including booking in workshops, checking new masters of the card game and lots and lots of phonecalls!)
Joel Bacha is out in Bolivia teaching teachers over there, so today along with the GE CDs which he’s already given out, I prepared a version of the phonics CD to give to the teachers out there. Apparently pronunciation is the thing they really need help with. And as the teachers only earn around $40-50 a month it’s great that I can help out by getting the Genki English materials to them for free. It’s funny though that yet again I had Japan schools asking if I could do their presentations for less money, i.e. cheaper than free by asking if I wouldn’t mind making a loss on the travel expenses! Another reason to get more International Understanding education into Japan!
Then in the evening I went into town to relax for a bit. I spent an hour or so at the music store playing on the posh keyboards ( very cool), bought myself a copy of Wired and sat with a big Chai Latte down by the river. Cool.
