Trying not to fall behind
Posted June 24, 2008on:
On blogging that is, but not much has changed since I wrote last week.
But time is going by pretty quickly. Ryohei’s final test is this weekend and then Monday we’ll find out the results of one that he too k back in May. So far he’s taken 4 and passed 1 failed 1… the other two we don’t know yet. He did pretty well on one, but you never know where the borderline is for them. It just gives me a headache thinking about it.
So yah… I’m going to Chiba this weekend actually to stay with my best Japanese friend Ikko and her family for the weekend. They were like my host family when I went to school in Tokyo and I haven’t seen her parents in almost 3 years now! Wow… time really does fly.
Today Ryohei showed me a mail that I’d written him on his keitai exactly a year ago. It was when he as still living/working in Tokyo and really having a hard time of it. It was when I first suggested that he come stay with me in Kobe and study for his tests. From that tiny mail sprung the life that I am living right now. A year passes by so fast… I keep a very detailed memo/schedule book so I can always look back and see what I was doing a year ago or six months ago… by writing it down the event seems to stay more etched in my memory. Speaking of six months… thats how long Ryohei and I have been living together. That went by quickly too!
But honestly.. I just want the next two months to be over. I want to know what is going on in my life and where the next step is. I have been in Kobe two years now, and somethings telling me its time to move on. I like it here, but I think I’m ready for the next step in my life wherever it takes me. I guess when I first came here I was a different person in so many ways. Not planning to get married or change my job or even stay in Japan for more than a year or so… I’ve had a lot of good memories here but it’s time to move on.
Anyways enough angsty rambling – I’m off to bed!
