Oddly Enough in 2018

I don’t believe that I have a Japanese girlfriend, but I’ve managed to obtain a Japanese something.

Decisions in 2018

When I was sixteen years old, I was involved with a girl named Lee. And I wanted, more than anything, to do all sorts of sexy things with her that I wouldn’t allow myself to do. And so, what di...

The End in 2018

For the first time in a very long time, I have the courage to listen to Brahms’ German Requiem. The fourth movement. The one I love and listen to because I grew to know it in Kidger’s class all...

TV etc. in 2017

I have my first NHK appearance on Sunday. I’ve been cramming for that. I’ll post about it after it happens. This could be the first step into an amazing world, or, it could be a whole lot of n...

A Very Short Time in 2017

I have to decide, within the next three months, whether or not I’m going to sign up for another year in Satsuma. This is a difficult decision for a lot of reasons, and I’m going to outline them ...

Gibbon in 2017

In attempting to read The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, I may have bitten off more than I can chew. The book is well written, and therein lies the problem. It’s too well ...

Nothing of Value in 2017

Just updating for the sake of updating. I feel that I ought to write, and I’m working on being conscientious, but I don’t really think that I have the wherewithal to do much more than to go thro...

Walking in 2017

When I walk, I puff my chest out like a twelve year old girl with very high expectations and a very dim present. When I walk, I hold my arms like I am a Lego man left in the car ten seconds too l...

Quiet in 2017

It’s quiet . . . too quiet. To be honest, I just haven’t had a great deal to say. No thinking, no breakthroughs. I’ve mostly been dicking around on the internet. Nowadays, I have plenty of ti...

Making history, making me in 2017

I have always lived my life, in quite conscious ways, as more than one person. I can remember, at the various summer day camps I went to, always creating a “club”, which these days overprotectiv...

May 25th to June 12th in 2017

Friday night, the cocktail party went very well. Leading up to it, Tomoko sent me messages informing me of the status of her search for alcohol. However, it was all pretty pointless as Inoue-sa...

May 23rd to 25th Eating in 2017

The night of May 23rd, I found myself starving. I was hungrier than I could remember having been in ages. More than that, I felt that odd compulsion to eat. I can’t even explain it. It was a ...

The 16th went well enough that there wasn’t really anything to report. The 17th went pretty well, but for a scheduling issue. I got to school, and found out that the schedule that I had receive...

The remainder of that week was rather dull. To be honest, things all kind of blended together and I don’t really remember a great deal of specifics. To give you an idea of how much it all blend...

Friday night was over shortly after the entry. I slept a lot and had nothing of interesting to report. Evidently I had another of those dreams where I dream in music. With full scores. It was...

Last night, I dreamed that I made my way down to Florida, and I kept lingering around Amanda and her place on a dirt bike, which I kept riding to various degrees of fancifulness. At one point, g...

It’s from a good song. Ignore the drama. I didn’t get as much accomplished as I had hoped. I fooled around too much after getting home rather than getting right to something. I’ve discovered t...

Since arriving, my days and my time have been spent similarly to how they were in the past. However, there are a few changes. So, let me describe what my days have been like for the last three ...

A Long Update in 2017

I’ll try to begin this entry as close to I can as the start of February. But, of course, I have to go back. In September, I injured my back. In trying to treat it, with onsen and electroshock,...

Bad Loans in 2017

I’ve once heard the art of self improvement being described as playing The Prisoner’s Dilemma by yourself over time. Best case scenario, present and future you do what you’re supposed to. Worst...

Hope in 2017

For nearly ten years, I’ve struggled with the aftermath of Rachael and Japan. For nearly ten years, I’ve struggled to pick up the pieces and move on, putting back together a broken philosophy an...

Going Home in 2017

Sunday, I go home for four weeks of medical treatment for my back. We’ll see how that goes.

Slipping in 2017

I’ve been diagnosed with a herniated disc. There is only one competent seeming chiropractor I can find in the country, and he is in Tokyo. Yesterday, he advised me that it wasn’t worth my time t...

Holding on in 2017

My vacation was wonderful. The time before it was miserable. The time after it has, thus far, not been encouraging. I need to keep reminding myself that I am Scott Adams’ “Moist Robot”. I need...
