Yay.  It's that time of year.

I say, Peter.  Can you really fly???

How much trouble are you guys having with the  "I am sweet, oh yes I am sweet" :-o line without laughing?

Are they doing lines from Peter Pan this time?? Haven't gotten my setup yet...

though I did find out that I'm a judge for the Speech Contest in Isawa in late October... this could be very weird.

That line does suck. When asked to demonstrate I cannot help but read it in an ironic fashion.
WTF in general to the passage, why do we have to do something so archaic and weird.

Ugh, two my JTEs and I have spent the past two days doing this. Luckly, I think we've finished.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

I've been working my arse off to get everything done too. So much trouble over comma placements.
 Thought we were the only ones to be so super late- the kid was supposed to have it in months ago apparently but...didn't.
The speech still sucks. But he has good English so...hopefully he can claw something back.

♪ ♫ Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya, tomorrow! Make this speech contest go awaaaaaaaaaay! ♪ ♫

Two hours after school almost every day (only one hour if I'm lucky), working through lunch, sometimes making NO progress for days...I am already dreading this time next year, and this speech contest isn't even over yet...

Don't get me wrong, I am super proud of my students. They have improved so much, I've loved getting to know them, and they are now very confident and comfortable speaking to me in English. Even if they don't win, I will know how much progress they've made and I'll still be very happy.
However, this has gone on FAR. TOO. LONG.

Well, I definitely agree.  I didn't even get to have any input into who was chosen this year, after repeatedly asking that I be kept in the loop, and well... at least one of the students this year is definitely NOT what I would have chosen for speach contest material (considering I can count on one hand the number of times she has spoken in class... this year). But, such is life.  Going to have to campaign really hard to get them to change the system next year so that I have some input in it, cus it kills me to have to do all the work training people that I would never have picked to go in the first place...

We are all supposed to eat lunch together in the SAKURA room. 

I'll make some of the sour cream dip and bring chips if people will sit with me.
