Post coming soon…

There is in fact a post coming – I’m sorry for the delay and for not having commented on people’s blogs recently. Unlike my usual inane panda-related banter, this post deals with something serious and important to me and I get so angry and despondent every time I start writing about it that it’s taking me a while to calm down and try and get everything out in a concise and coherent way.

tokyo disney land - post coming soon!

In addition, this is an insanely busy time of year at work, which when coupled with studying for the JLPT exam that’s in three weeks, means there will be no relief in sight until the end of December. Not to mention that I have to make a really really important life decision in the next couple of months – namely if I’m staying in Japan or if I’m going somewhere else.

When I’m stressed like this I like to listen to some older 2Pac joints – this one is off “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory”, his last album before he was murdered. It amazes me that 10 years later his songs still sound as fresh as they did the first time I heard them.

Makaveli (2Pac) – Krazy

I’m so tired right now.

Now listening to: Makaveli – Krazy

    Argh, exam time – I know how you feel. But don’t forget to celebrate Thanksgiving next week, at least a little bit; go out and have a nice dinner. Everything’s better with good food. And cake. You should always have cake.
    Ok, I’ll stop rambling on and on about food now …
    Take heart, there will be less tiring times. Or, as we say in Germany: Augen zu und durch – eyes closed and through!

    I still have that CD – you gave it to me.
    Good stuff.
    Whatever you decide to do / wherever I’m living, you can always come crash with me if you want to be somewhere different in the interim.
