The train keeps rolling…

with one comment

So, I’ve got my apartment, but nothing in it. The bed’s being delivered on Friday though. And I should be getting some other appliances shortly. Sayaka’s dad’s gonna hook me up with a used TV. I talked to someone about getting internet set up, but it’s gonna take about three weeks. Thanks Japan.

Also, I told Nova I was leaving yesterday. The people I work with on a daily basis are happy for me that I found something different to try. The students I told today were sad that I was leaving. I’m sure I’ll be hearing from the higher-ups tomorrow, asking about why I’m leaving.


Last night, we went to Okazaki’s big ass fireworks display. Here’s a youtube clip I took on my phone.

Nova Instructor

Newsvine – British Woman Slain in Tokyo

A few days ago, a Nova instructor was found murdered after having been reported missing for days. I suppose I’m at very low risk considering I’m male, but these are not the sorts of things I think would happen as nearly as much in Japan as in the U.S.
