Alright. So here’s the deal, readers. Weekly updates will still be on Sundays (with the exception of today). Wednesdays will be topic posts, generally consisting of a specific thing I’m dealing with (money, jobs, moving, etc), with the 2nd Wednesday dealing specifically with Japanese language or culture and the 4th Wednesday dealing with a specific academic-type topic. For example, I think I’ll be starting with cats. The science of cats. Yeah, that sounds good. Fridays will be a creative day. For the most part, it’ll be writing. I’m going to try a mini-NaNoWriMo this November, so this month will be gearing up for that.
With that news out of the way, let’s get into the update. I’m all moved home to IA. Have been for about a week. I’m not unpacked or settled in by any means, but I’m here and I’m slowly making myself comfortable. Right after I got here, my cold caught up with me and basically KO’d me for quite a while. I’m still sniffling and coughing and I would prefer to spend a good chunk of my day curled up under my fluffy, warm comforter in bed, but I can function now. The day after I got here, I was down and out. Body aches, backed-up sinuses, persistent coughing all the unhappy things that come with being sick. So this week has been relatively uneventful in terms of things to write about.
But tomorrow, I should hopefully find out whether or not I got the job at ECC. The direction my life will take in the next few months will be hinged on this one thing. So, positive vibes, please!
That’s really about it. I don’t lead a super exciting life at the moment. It’s mostly waiting. Waiting to hear back from a job, specifically. And not just ECC. I’ve been applying for jobs locally because I do need money to save up for my move to Japan.
Anyway, check back on Wednesday for the topic post!
Even if it’s slow going, enjoy the journey!
