Well its time to give the good old blog some love. You can see 2 of the links on the right no longer work. I guess Scott and Eston cant even be bothered to keep there account open. Nevertheless, those links will stay right there, and I will continue to check them. I myself wish that I could say that I`ve simply been too busy to keep up with the blog, but actually I have an absurd amount of free time. I work an average 3 hours a day, but the school makes me stay there for 9 hours a day. So the rest of the time I study Japanese, read books, and surf the net. Lately I`ve even started doing Yoga.

I guess I`ll just give a general update on this first post. Overall things are going really well. I was getting pretty home sick back around June and pretty much ready to head back home, but then my parents came in August and I decided to finish out my contract. Right now I`m getting homesick again, but I only have 4 months left. I`m enjoying a lot of things about Japan, Ive done a lot of traveling on my Island, Kyushu, which means 9 states. I`m actually proud to say that I`ve been to 6 out of 7 of those states, and definitely plan on going to the seventh before I leave. Yeah that`s right 7. Some of the states were combined, and the Japanese can be really slow to change things.

Really I can`t believe it`s already been a year. I`m gettin pretty good at speaking Japanese, and I can actually communicate just about anything I need to communicate allbeit in broken Japanese. I`ll certainly be more compassionate towards illerate foreigners when I get back home now that I`ve experienced it first hand.

In other news, I recently had a one year anniversary with my girlfriend, hiromi, who has been a reoccuring character here in the blog for those of you who check everyday. She met my parents in August when they came to visit and right now she`s in Texas for a few days to check things out. Unfortunately I couldn`t be asked to spend over a thousand dollars to visit Texas especially since I`ll be home in 4 months. It sounds to me like she`s liking Texas which is good. Right now she`s at my sister`s birthday party, so she`s getting to meet the whole family.

Well thats all for now. Sorry if its a bit incoherent. I just had a lot of different random shit I wanted to say. I will soon update with pictures from Korea Hong Kong, and some of my travels throught Japan.

I thought you were coming home with her! That's too bad! I didn't realize you were staying in Japan while they came to visit. Hang in there. Those four months will be gone before you know it!

Rumor has it that you're moving back to the states and bringing a girl with you. No one would know that because it's not on your blog though. Mine is so secretive now though that only the 1337 have access
