Weekly Logs Dec.30, 2019 – Jan.5, 2020

The week was 19th week of the first semester, and it was for the final examination.

 

Monday;

I uploaded last week’s log onto this blog in the morning. After that I graded answer sheet of listening test for 1st grade students until noon. It was the fourth day of grading because I was doing the second check by myself. I continued the task in the afternoon, but I took a big nap for two hours. I went to the teachers’ room in the evening to meet another teacher. The room was chilly.

 

Tuesday;

It was the last day of 2019. I washed two white shirts by hand in the morning. I took morning nap? for an hour. I calculated scores for composition classes of 2nd grade in the afternoon. Students’ grades are calculated as summation of 50 points from scores of final test and 50 points about a student’s activities and attendances during the semester. Since the final test had not come yet at time of Tuesday, I calculated the latter scores. In the evening I went to the teachers’ room again and returned the textbook that I borrowed on Monday.

 

Wednesday;

It was the new year’s day. I could say that the day was the first holiday since the first semester had started. I sent a lot of emails to my friends to say wishing them a happy new year. Later I found that email was out of date as a communication tool, because the replies didn’t come soon. I spent most of the hours of afternoon on the bed. I wanted to have the day a holiday, but I worked for two hours in the evening in order to analyze the textbook that will be used in the conversation class in the second semester.

 

Thursday:

The final examination for composition classes was held in the morning from 8:30 to 10:30. As soon as I came back my residence I started grading the answer sheet.

 

Friday:

The first round of grading was finished in the morning. There was a test for my small class in the afternoon. But I didn’t have to supervise the test because it was done with another class in the same room and another teacher supervised both. I went to the teachers’ room at 3 p.m. to get the answer sheet. I graded them in the rest of the day.

 

Saturday;

I finished grading the final exam and scoring class performance for the small Japanese class. After that I went to the university restaurant to eat my lunch, and then went to a grocery store to buy vegetable. After one hour of nap, I got up from the bed at 3 p.m. I started the double check of test grading for composition classes. The second check for Thursday class was finished in the day.

 

Sunday;

I finished the second check for Friday class in the morning. I went to the university restaurant at noon, but most of the restaurants were already closed. So I went outside of university and ate a pilaf of beef and green pepper. After a long nap, I summarized results of scores. The last thing that I have to do is to register the grading onto the intranet of the university.

Oh, by the way, I think “Bic” means a bicycle in English, but “Baiku” in Japanese means a motorcycle.

今週のお昼ご飯 w01

p00317

いつもとちょっと違うのは、プラスチックの食器兼トレイじゃなくて、金属製の食器であること。週末のお昼は教員用食堂ではなくて、学生食堂で食べている。こちらは人気のお店で、いつも学生が並んでいる。言葉のできない私はいつも近づけないが、今回は空いていたので、初めてこのお店で食べてみた。量は申し分ないが、ご飯が黄色かった。

こちらも学生食堂のお昼。上の写真のお店に比べて高かった。鶏肉のせいかもしれない。

 

p00319

鶏肉アップ。大型の足を3分割。スパイスの利かせ方がとても良いのだが、多量の塩分と脂が健康には良くないだろう。

 

p00320

たまにはあっさり軽く、これだけのお昼もアリかと。しかし油で炒めてあるので、結局油地獄からは逃れられない。

 

p00321

平日、いつもの教員食堂にて。

レバーの湯通しがちょっとナマナマしいが。

 

p00323

トマト、キャベツ、じゃがいもとモヤシのスープ。塩分を敬遠して汁はなるべく入れない。具沢山が嬉しい。

今週は期末試験の週だった。自分の担当する作文の授業の監督をした。特にカンニング行為も見つからず、無事終了。採点が大変だが、週末に終わらせれば、週明けには今学期の仕事は終了だ。
