We've been meeting up a lot with many people over the past week. It's hard to get around in Ootsu: it's a pretty big area and using your bike won't cut it, so we take the train a lot, making us rack up expenses like crazy! I'll have to do some different budgeting from now on, lest I want to run out halfway through the transfer. The people here are lovely, though, and I'm really happy to see that our investigators seem to have a really good relationship with the missionaries. We've been teaching in Spanish, English, Portuguese and Japanese, by the way. Talk about multicultural, haha!
This week has killed me -- I'm super exhausted. I feel like I have lost any kind of personal time after becoming a senior companion. As soon as we get home we plan for the next day and then when I would normally have time to some personal stuff, I find myself sending mails and calls to our investigators and members. And then time's up, lights go out and there I am lying in my futon, feeling unsatisfied with myself. Still figuring out this senior companion thing, I guess. Kind of underestimated it, heheheh.
Sorry for the short mail; we have an appointment with one of our investigators in a few. Gotta go. Thank you so much for reading!
