Back to Reality

After my last post, this will seem VERY anti-climatic.


After sumo last week, everything has flown by in a blur. I am actually kind of grateful for the speed which time has been passing with lately. My time in Japan is coming to an end. And while that brings sadness it also brings a sense of relief, like I can finally see the light at the end of a dark tunnel. Don’t get me wrong, I still have another 4 months left in Japan after I return from my vacation back home. But in the grand scheme of things, my time in Japan is almost completed.

I guess what has been making me think about that, is all the stuff I have to do while I am home in preparations of my return in July. I just spent an hour trying to do a car loan application online, that would time out after a minute of not typing anything, and thus ended in me having to re-type EVERYTHING again. (This happened 3 times!) I have to get the application done now, so I can have a meeting while I am home, so I can order my new car, which is estimated to take up to 5 months before I can get it. ARG! I also have to find a time to have a pseudo job interview with a man at Direct Buy, so I can know if I have a job when I come home OR if I will have to continue to search for one. On top of all that, I am trying to figure out how to do my taxes with working for half a year in the states and another half in Japan. Probably one of the most complicated things EVER.

Please don’t take this as whining. Rather, a venting about all the things one must accomplish FAR IN ADVANCE. It is utter craziness.

(And then, suddenly, I smile.)

I am getting on an airplane and coming home in 9 days.

Life is good.

  1. 9 days!!! YEA!!!! The lyrics come to mind, “Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again.” 🙂 Even though you do know when you are coming back to Japan… you can pretend right?! I can’t wait to see you. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help with the chaos and craziness of coming back. You’ll be here soon!!


I would love to hear what you thought!
