Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

Back to the Future…

In just a few hours, I will be on my way back to Japan. (I say “Future” because I’m crossing time zones to a country that’s 13 hours ahead.)

My room is definitely not 100% clean, especially compared to how it was the last time I left. There are a few reasons for that. One, because my brother’s wedding was the week before, and things were really hectic. Two, I didn’t want to start packing and cleaning too early because it would have been annoying taking things out of my suitcase that I want to use or wear and then putting them back. And finally, it’s because I still haven’t accepted that I’m leaving. In my heart I don’t want to leave. I know there are great things to look forward to, but I feel like I haven’t spent enough time with my family and friends. Leaving them the first time made me realize just how much I really missed them. And now, just when I’ve gotten used to being back in the U.S. and just when I started having fun with everyone, I have to leave again.

There will certainly be plenty of things to keep me busy. I pray that this experience will be just as good as or even greater than my last experience living daily life as a gaijin.

Here is a video I made last night. I hope to do these videos regularly throughout my experience in Japan.
