GTFO 2012!

I still have people reading this blog, I suppose.

I have neglected my poor blog for so long now. It has been MONTHS since I last updated. Terrible. I hope you'll forgive my absence.

I moved back home, went through a horrible transition period of reverse homesickness and constant self-doubt, and now I've come out at the other end of the tunnel with a brighter outlook on my future. I applied to a graduate program and am working, though I'll hopefully find a better paying job in the new year. If I'm accepted into school I won't start until next August or September, so I have time to do things. What things I don't know, but if something comes along I'll have fun.

2012 was good to me. Good enough, anyway. Taught some English, traveled a little, met a bunch of wonderful people in Japan, met another bunch of wonderful people when I came back. I miss my concrete jungle, as frustrating as it is to live in sometimes, but at the same time I'm okay with having returned to Hawaii.

According to the Chinese Zodiac and feng shui things my mother does, I'm going to have an awful year and I have to put random things around my room and the house to protect myself from the fates from murdering me. The fire rabbit and water snake don't get along. Hope I don't die.

I don't know where this blog will be going, since I'm not in Japan and I have no plans to go back at the moment. Living on a rock SUCKS so much, I am so bored you have no idea. I'll try to make it work.



  1. lol at your mom's dire predictions. i'm sure 2013 will be just fine. "reverse culture shock" is a bitch... hang in there!

  2. Man I didn't even look at my Chinese zodiac this year. Last time I did it was a horrible prediction, and just an okay year. So... maybe I won't look :)
    Come back to Japan! I'm sad that you left before I got here and we didn't get the chance to do stupid gaijin things together. can live in my room. In the boonies...
    ...I have a kotatsu...?
    Maybe you should stay in Hawaii until next month. It's freaking cold here.


The toes you step on today may be related to the butt you kiss tomorrow.
