Outta sight, outta mind, outta here...

I rarely write on here, and I am tempted just to stop now alltogether.

I rarely read other peoples journals, I only write something.

I think this is a way of saying Goodbye to many things right now. I have tried to keep all that I can being so far away. I have never stopped thinking of the people I have left behind, but it seems that I can not count on others as I used to. I really want to be happy but I think there is way too much drama, stress and frustration with the past, so I am just cutting a lot of shit out. Gotta work on my life, after all who knows what the future will bring.

This is the last update perhaps forever.. *sounds dramatic*

I love Japan but my job works me like a dog. I am grateful though, because I am not relying on any handouts nor state benefits. i have a pension fund which is really important. I have a career, a new language, new friends and experiences. I go out every weekend, see new things and challenge myself. Nothing is ever boring here.

I want to keep studying. Education is extremely important. In this age few people can really make it without a degree, and even then a degree is nothing you need a MA, PhD, etc. I have been looking at going back to school in the next couple of years. My first thoughts are going to Helsinki to study Global Studies MA. with this, perhaps I could work within the E.U or U.N? Who knows? This is just an idea of course... I am always working on more than one idea.

People I believed I was close too just seem to always let me down. I'm not letting people get close anymore. Still a friend, but I just wanna take care of myself and not give a damn about your problems. There are only a couple of people I trust and they know who they are.


Well, Goodbye.

Christmas has come and gone and more and more I am discovering it is more than presents and stuff. This year my presents were primarily money but I don't feel the need to bore anyone with all the details. All my presents were awesome because so much thought went into them. Thank you very much.

Now what did I get for others. Well most of the presents are still here and shall be untill May when my parents visit. My father wants to add to his already huge collection of football tees and get a japanese footie shirt. I vote not Omiya ( google to understand ) for my mother there is tea. Nice tea...jen jen is a secret because she can see this. I am looking forward to a visit.

And for today... I m going to Korea!!!

It's the same dead boy's song.

My first is the language barrior which still hinders me at every turn although I have gotten better my level is still so low it cannot be considered a conversation.

My second is a constant unchanging fact.

My third is the granted to be taken.

My fourth is no regrets and no looking back. I want to travel where life travels. It will never be enough. I will never settle and I will never stop. You may give up and believe this is all there is but I will sacrifice normality to see everything with my two eyes.

My fifth is the song of myself.

Heart racing...

So I am now on day 8 of work... this is starting to hurt now.
Training was as I expected not worth the 8 hours I spent on it, and some Japanese person tried to ring me, and left a message. I don't recognise the number so I shall have M*** check it out today. I just wanna sleeeeeep...

Sooo another Sunday off. Next week will kill I don't know how I can do a 9 day week and still b able to do my job well, finish the kids self study poster and sell self study bs. I dont think it will work. It is hard to sell expensive cds and books on students..... but I have to sell something arrrgh.


I neeeed to sort my hair out. Yeah kinda mundane but it is pissing me off. It is too short to tie up and it looks weird if I leave it down. It kinda sticks out at the bottom and doesnt look good.... maybe I will have my first professional haircut at a salon? Yeah? Only problem I want to grow my hair out
.... damn

 Or not I guess...
So you may call me a pussy for freaking out about a blood test, but shaking and a little dramatically I accepted this as one of life's little deal with it moments and maned the fuck up, held out my arm and closed my eyes, it doesn't hurt, ittakunai desu! But the very idea of an blood test makes me feel quite ill. Sometimes you have to just fight your fears... or at least do not freak out in public. 

I am still rather ill, my hearing is impaired which is causing me some worry and I want that back before Tuesday.

Life at the moment is something interesting, I am learning a lot and in someways I feel larthagic. Life is work work work but also in someways I experience complete freedom.  I love the weekends but I also can't wait to go back to work..

Today I went to LV! Seriously! WOW I felt so poor, but have decided to visit the Anna Sui shop sometime because I love Anna Sui, my designer of choice, one day I am gonna get me a purse or bag or something :D 

Studying every other moment too because I want to take the JLPT N4 in July 2011. I have to work hard!
