By the time you read this, I will already be on a 13 hour flight heading straight for the good olde… Canada? Yeah, I have a transfer in Canada first before heading back home to the States. It will be my first time in Canada, and I won’t even get to leave the airport.
Being in Japan has been quite a journey. I came here for a lot of reasons, namely because it’s the ultimate nerd dream, let’s be honest here. But while I have lived in Japan, the country has done more for me internally than anything. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last two years. I am capable of so much if I just would muster up the courage. I want to take this experience, and make great things from it, to show everyone how much it has meant to me.
There’s been drama, soul searching, crying, binge cake eating, binge TV series watching, more crying, and screaming, but in the end, I feel like I have grown up so much… which is unexpected when you are already 29. But I’ve always felt so much younger than I am, and now everything might line up (although mentally I still think I am somewhere around 25… which is better than it was when I got here). I don’t want to wait anymore. I want to start my life. No more idling, no more waiting until the day is right. I’m going to seize my now, and keep an eye on the future.
