Today is Risshun, the first day of Spring. The first Southern wind after Risshun is called “Spring No. 1″（春一番）When will Spring actually come to Hokkaido, I wonder…
Today, I have a cold. But at least it’s not influenza. So many students were absent from my class today, that the remaining students couldn’t eat all the meatballs, despite having seconds.
The other thing interesting today at lunch was the student across from me forgot his chopsticks. Instead of borrowing from the teacher, he decided obtain two of the milk straws and ate his entire lunch with them. It was amusing, but he succeeded in completely cleaning his plate.
