♥ As We Get Closer

I believe I am still under the impression I'm just going on a trip, and not actually moving away. I don't think it has to do with any reservations about moving, its just I've never particularly done it before. That is more of an unknown for me. I've lived abroad before for an extended period of time, but I always knew when I was coming back, there was a set date. In London I was there to accomplish a semester, in Israel I knew down to the hour because well, while it was a great experience, I was ready to leave.... haha ok, I was really ready to leave. Too hot, too much religion.

With Japan it is an open book. I love this, but I also fear it. Those who say there is nothing to be afraid about, and I have no reason to have any fear do not understand a fundamental belief I have. I think fear is good. It means, for better or for worse, you understand that you've about to embark on something special, something different. A healthy dose of fucking terrified is good to humble anyone. We all need a shot of humility once in awhile, and what better way to receive it then with a pungent and impassioned slap of sushi in your face?

I know I will just be fine, I just haven't been able to wrap my head around it because no one has really been talking extensivly about it. Sure a mention here or there, but I've mainly just been keeping it all to myself. This makes sense tough as its my journey, so I'm not upset necessarily, just trying to figure things out and maybe being a bit sluggish about it. Oh well, it'll all get done and life shall go on. Journies are meant to be a bit haphazard, if you're too prepared it takes the joy of exploration and experience.
