I walked to school today at my usual dreadfully early 8:00. It was raining and rather unpleasant. When I get there the main gate is locked. “Odd.” I think. I ring the doorbell a couple times with no answer. I then call the school a few times from my keitai (mobile phone) also with no answer. It looks like my Tanigawa Junior High School was closed for the day. It would have been nice to know this, say, yesterday so I could have slept in! But I can’t complain too much because I have the day off w00t! As I walked home the clouds parted and a single ray of sunshine streaked from the heavens and struck only me.
In a related note, my friends’ schools are open. Ha ha loosers. I think I will spend the day sending them pictures of myself relaxing, playing Warcraft III, napping, etc. That will be fun.
Freedom isn't free. The price of freedom is that other people still have to go to work so that you realize just how free you are.
