Golden week is now unfortunately over, and as fun as it was, I hope it was good to get back to your schools and your students as well – if only to make them insanely jealous of all the cool things you did while they played sports and did homework.
To tide you over until the next bundle of fun that comes your way, and to maybe level out your sadness, GMA is bringing memories, fun and something to distract you from the thought of being in sunnier, free-timier places.
