And so our story begins!

"Dear Mary:

Greetings from Los Angeles!

We are writing to inform you that we have sent your hiring package to you via FedEx that contains the contracts, agreement forms, policy manuals and all other important documents necessary for the visa application."

So, it looks like I am moving to Japan! But wait. What's this? I need to move out of my house, find a renter (I bought the place), get my stuff into storage, build a respectable work wardrobe, secure a home for my birds, get all of my bills squared away, so on and so forth... in five weeks. I am moving to Japan in five weeks. That seems freakin' crazy! Do-able, I guess, but crazy. Also, I am kind of throwing a monkey-wrench into some vacation plans I had with my friends, and they are pretty annoyed with me, so I can't really make this about Me right now...

I wonder if being chronically disappointed and depressed will eventually win out. Anyone want to place money on the roulette wheel? The numbers available are 25-68.

I guess I am just really lonely and want SOMEONE I know around me to be in a healthy relationship just so I can live vicariously.

Yea~ My phone is cute~~~

Shouldn't I be in bed by now?

So, this summer...

June 15-25: Tokyo (just a visit, but still. I need a fix.)
July 1-30: London (TESOL certification)

And then waddle my happy ass back to work for a few months (Hey, Governer Gibbons? I will take the pay cut if I get 17 more days off). Apply to my school in Nagoya, and move back to Japan for a year or so.

I was going to go to Shanghai instead of London but.... I REALLY don't speak Mandarin, and any country I go to, I need to be able to say, "hi, good afternoon. Say, I have a SEVERE seafood allergy. Does this have shrimp in it?" I can do that in Japanese and English only at this point.

Last post: Oct. 12. Crazy.

Still a teacher. Applying to a couple different programs to work overseas but not really putting any effort into it.

And then they opened a Chika Chika (AKA Chiara for all practical purposes, one of my fave stores in Shibuya 109. Fun atmosphere. 90% crap and 10% awesome). I know where I am going Friday...!
