Starting over with everything..

I lived and worked in Japan for a long time and have come back in a time of economic and ever present family drama to try and gain a foothold in my so-called home country. Armed with nothing but dog fur, a crappy car, a laptop that hates me, I try to see how far I can get.

Home, home on the range...

My trip begins...
We go to a magical place called Chucky Cheese.
Then I jet off to Paris...
And we meet Simon Cowell..
And Whoopi.
Got drunk and tried to join the Circus.
Rejected, I and my brother started on a journey
Met some bums on the beach
We played some football
And I lost so I had to give this one a donut.
Then we hugged in the parking lot to prove there was no hard feelings.
Stay tuned for the next installment...

Only in Japan...

can you find a cat in a car in a parking lot, dressed in a pink and white checkered buttoned up collared shirt. I would have taken a picture but some lady was staring at me like I was a freak.

Sorry for not having written in a while. I've been pretty busy since coming back and frankly couldn't be bothered when I was in the states. Happy New Year to all and I hope you had a good holiday season. Going home was crazy. I felt like such an outsider for most of the time. Not necessarily in a bad way, but not quite comfortable. I saw all my family and friends and even some people I never counted on seeing which was amazing and very surreal. It strange to see people grow up, but it's even stranger to see someone and leave for an extended period and see them blossom into a completely different person. Forgive me if I sound spacy, I'm still pretty tired as I haven't really gotten proper rest and haven't even unpacked properly yet.

To everyone back home, thank you so much for everything. I had a great time and was really sad to leave. I still have a bit of lingering homesickness but the temperature and my car have helped me overcome it a bit. I will write more later when I can and post pictures up from the trip. I'll be sending pictures to people personally this weekend because I think I have a break in my schedule. Love you all.
