I’m done with Japan. Finished. Finito. Ready to go.

I learned a lot being here, and I’m so glad I came and developed my career and worldly understanding. This was perhaps one of the most important learning experiences of my life. A good friend of mine said she thought it was a mistake for me to come here . . . and while she might have meant that she knew I would eventually leave, perhaps she didn’t realize that I would learn so much . . .

But it’s time to move on.

  1. I’ll miss visiting you two there. Hopefully I can visit you in a different place still. :)

  2. Wow. On one hand I’m surprised but on the other hand I knew this wasn’t a permanent settlement for you. Sounds like it’s time to add a new chapter to the book.

    Next chapter…St. Louis? Meet me in St. Louis? *snort* yeah, I didn’t think so!

  3. Thanks sweetie — I’ve been mentally preparing for this for a while. Now it’s just a matter of getting the mechanical stuff in order.

  4. Answer unclear. Ask again in a couple of weeks. :)

    Countries other than the US that have English as at least one of the official languages are currently under consideration. No more running to the secretary to help translate key government documents.

  5. And if we’re living in an area where you can’t get good Japanese food, we’ll be cooking it ourselves. So come on by for some oishii stuff!

  6. Canada is looking more and more like a realistic option, tho I don’t really like the weather much :(

  7. Montreal is on the short list (or the Montreal/Ottawa area…) because of Canada’s liberal same-sex immigration policy. Now to find that elusive job!

  8. Hey, if nothing else, St. Louis is a nice stopping place for a cross-country flight. If I manage to get my instrument rating anytime soon, STL could very well be part of the picture. :P

  9. haha yeah, there are few places in this world worse then Pittsburgh.

    Well, I’m willing to bet where ever you go you will have a blast.
