Goodbye, Japan

August 2, 2018

I used to always try to imagine the situation I’m in right now. As in, lying here in this hotel room, writing this post the night before I leave Japan. I used to always try to imagine my emotions – would I be crying because I didn’t want it to be over so soon? Would I be joyfully reminiscing? Or maybe I wouldn’t really have …

The Leaving Process

July 6, 2018

Those of you with a keen eye will have noticed that the last time I updated this blog was over a month ago. Of course, I mentioned in an earlier blog entry that my posts would be reduced from being on a weekly basis to whenever I felt an urge to write.

Stepping Stones

April 15, 2018

Short post due to still trying to find my bearings, but I’m more or less back on track attitude-wise. Of course, having a two month break filled with nothing but excitement and then returning to Waseda was going to demotivate me – but now that I’ve begun class full-time again and gotten to see old faces (and plenty of new ones), I’m feeling much more …
