The two courses I teach in the JIU Community College started yesterday. I was pleased to realize the enrollment for the day time class was very high and I was really pleased to see the participants in the Discussions course in the evening as well. I felt fortunate to be able to celebrate Watanabe-san's birthday with her and the classmates last night. She's been taking this class for the past 20 years and I feel honored we have celebrated our birthdays in class all these years.
