October 7th and 8th in 2015

I didn’t end up doing much yesterday (the 7th). Just exhausted for whatever reason. I’m sleeping better, but I don’t seem to be any less tired. Actually, I’m sleeping about as well as I normal...

October 1-7 in 2015

Well, Friday I went back to the doctor, and that was that. I got my medicine, and, so far, sleeping seems to be coming along nicely. Obviously it’s not perfect, but it’s way better than it was....

Sept 30-Oct1 in 2015

Well, I slept! Thank goodness I slept! I thought I wasn’t going to make it, but I did. Yesterday was awful, especially towards the afternoon. I felt so sick from lack of sleep that I couldn’t...

September 28th-30th in 2015

Monday continued on without nothing of note to set it apart from any other day. I believe that I skipped out on my walk for some reason or other. I didn’t really budget time for it, even though...

September 26th through 28th in 2015

Well, I did the second half of the walk on Friday. I climbed the mountain in town. Well, it’s a tall and incredibly steep hill, really, but the spiral path up takes quite some time and it’s ste...

September 16th through 25th in 2015

Nothing of much note happened on the 15th. Nothing much to report, at any rate. I walked some, I cleaned some, I didn’t get a great deal accomplished, but it wasn’t a total waste. Wednesday th...

Sept 11th-15th in 2015

After that, on the 11th (written on the 15th) I didn’t do much in school. In the end, I ended up going to the work Enkai welcome party. That was fun enough, though not nearly so fun as I’d hope...

Sept 8-11 in 2015

Yesterday didn’t go according to plan. I ended up staying at school until 6. At 4:30, I helped one of Inori Sensei’s students with her English pronunciation for a contest. I got to solve a min...

Sept 7-8 in 2015

So, what can be said for yesterday? Not a great deal. I had one class, and, after that, I got to leave early to teach the Monday eikaiwa. It was pleasant enough. They gently suggested that I ...

September 4th-7th in 2015

It’s now the 7th, and I’ve got internet, and I’ve got 5 more gigs on my phone, so I was able to post everything. That having been said, the best time to write in this thing is when I’m at work, ...

Sans Internet Writing in 2015

I felt chills. I felt chills and I still feel them. When did I last feel like this from a work of fiction? When did I last feel like this from anything? What possessed me to give up reading? ...

August 25th-Sept 4th in 2015

Well, it rained yesterday. Good heavens it rained yesterday. The river kept rising a bit. I need to drop by today and see how it’s doing. (Today is the 26th, by the way). For lunch, Sam and ...

August 20th-24th in 2015

Regarding yesterday (Thursday the 20th), I went on a long walk. I was looking for either the Nafco (which I didn’t find) or the town’s one Italian restaurant (which I also didn’t find). Barring...

August 18th-19th in 2015

Well, it’s now the morning of the 18th of August. I’ll sum up what happened yesterday and then try to ramble a bit in the interest of preserving a bit of my own sanity. There is so very little ...

August 14-17 in 2015

Friday August 14th? It is 10:02 AM, and I am remembering just how difficult it is to pretend to be working. Effectively, I have nothing to do until I go to a Japanese language summit on the 25th...

Melon Soda in 2015

It seems there’s a lot less of it. Everywhere I go, I search for my beloved Fanta Melon Soda, but it always seems to be hiding. I’ve had a few knockoffs, and some of them were better than other...

A few more days in 2015

It’s pouring, and finally cool. I’ve got a ukulele arrangement of Gymnopedie No. 1. playing so that I can go back to learning it soon. I snuck off to Satsumasendai on my own yesterday, and I th...

Arrival in Japan in 2015

So, Saturday morning, August 1st, I got on a plane to Tokyo. It was a long flight, and mostly not too bad. I got an aisle seat in the center back of a 747, to the right hand side of the central...

Many goodbyes in 2015

My goodbye from Michigan Beer Growler Company was emotional to say the least, and I’ll say more on that later (it was last Friday). Since then, I’ve had to say goodbyes at my going away party (m...

A week in 2015

In a week, I leave for Japan. My conversation with Courtney and the long string of goodbyes is making this seem as though I’m marching off to my death. In many ways, I feel that I am. The fact...

The first goodbye in 2015

I had a long sentimental goodbye with Courtney today. It was the first of many goodbyes I can look forward to in the next few weeks. A little over two weeks and I’ll be in Japan. It’s nearly i...

Placeholder in 2015

Finishing up one of the two jobs today. Will be writing more. Mostly about JET, I think.

Lindsey and others in 2015

She kissed like an actress. Without excess or lacking. We finished the scene. There was a storm outside, just lightening and rain. No thunder. We cuddled for a while in the car with the cent...

Delay in 2014

Tonight I had a date. A date I’ve been looking forward to for nearly five years. Well, it was a second date, but do they really count without a kiss? At any rate, a lovely way to end a night. W...

Long absence in 2015

For my long absence, I do sincerely apologize. I expect to be writing a lot more, especially as I find more time to think and as my long dormant sense of hope and excitement reawakens as I get r...
