This video footage of Kesennuma getting leveled is both awe-inspiring and deeply saddening.
Aside from trying not to let coverage of the earthquake/tsunami aftermath get me down too much, I haven’t been up to much lately other than embarking on a couple new adventures: watching old movies (and even an occasional new one) to write up for PopBunker.net, and tutoring at a nearby middle school once a week. The tutoring gig, which is almost more like a classroom aide sort of thing, is quite an experience. It’s definitely given me a newfound respect for schoolteachers. So far I’ve been going in to tutor for an hour before work every Monday, but in April I’ll also be going on Thursday afternoons for an after-school writing workshop thing. I’m looking forward to it – teaching sure seems to be a great way to learn.
