I have officially been in Japan for two years now. In those two years, I've made friends, lost friends, traveled, had good times and bad times, but mostly good times. I became a university graduate and I got myself an awesome job. I've moved 3 times, which is pretty low for a 2 year period for me.
I wasn't sure if I would stay once I got here. It turns out that I do like it here and I'm going to stick around for a while.
On an unrelated note, I got myself a new toy. It's an Acer Aspire One micro laptop, and it's a lot of fun. I got it cheap from a store that's going out of business. I really want a computer I can do video editing on, but this is a nice little toy that I can take anywhere. When I get a bigger place to live (move #4) and more money in the bank, I'll get a nice non-laptop for business reasons, but for now this tiny little device is enough to keep me going until then.
