Oh yeah, and these are all un-betaed. I'll probably go over them again once I finish the entire lot (and might get another Japanese-savvy friend to check)...but if you do have any comments or suggestions, do feel free to voice them ^^
Please DO NOT post this elsewhere (links are ok). Comments and suggestions are always welcome though!

28. Part-time work
Araragi: It's not that I'm all that interested, having never intended to do any, but does
our school allow students to hold a part-time job?
Hanewaka: Generally speaking, no, but if you get permission from them, they'll allow it.
Araragi: Hmm... Come to think of it, in order to pay Oshino, Senjougahara helped her
father with his work, didn't she?
Hanewaka: That's quite possible.
Araragi: Hanekawa, have you ever thought about getting a part-time job?
Hanewaka: Well...no. I don't think I am worthy of working for society yet.
Araragi: Your standards are too high...
Hanewaka: If I had to say though, then tutoring you is something like part-time work
Araragi: Though I'm not paying you anything.
Hanewaka: I'm receiving something far more valuable than money in return.
Araragi: You probably know this already, but Kanbaru has over twenty TVs of varying
sizes at her place. I couldn't believe it. In her incredibly messy room alone, there were three of them.
Senjouhara: That girl has no idea how to use money. If Japan's economy revives itself,
you can probably attribute it all to her.
Araragi: If that's to be envied, than count me in. There's just one TV at my place, in the
living room, so I always have to fight with my sisters for the remote.
Senjouhara: If you want my opinion, I'd say it's too extravagant for a high school
student to have a TV in their room.
Araragi: Well, you could say that.
Senjouhara: There's only one TV at my place, but even before that, there's just one
Araragi: Since I started studying for exams, I've been listening to the radio all the
time. Radio really is the exam student's companion.
Hanekawa: Well, perhaps...but it's probably better if you stop listening to the radio
whilst studying, particularly because listening is the most sensitive of your five senses.
Hanekawa: Yup. In fact, people put more weight to what they hear over what they see
when making a decision about something.
Araragi: That so? Then listening to a tape of your textbook through your headphones
whilst watching a movie with subtitles might be a more effective way of studying.
Hanekawa: Though it would seem like you're not studying at all then.
