Oh my god, where the hell have I been since my last post? I don't know... One thing that's for sure is I was quite motivated to keep up my Japan chronicle, but I got really busy towards the end of my stay in Japan. Ever since I went to the reunion in December, I got in touch with a lot of old friends that I had not seen for nearly 6 years. So I took full advantage of my time in Japan, and I hanged out with as many people as possible. It was tons of fun, but I was tired towards the end, due to food and alcohol coma...

And the last few days were all about this translation job (Japanese to English) my mom gave me. I had this assignment sittin' on my desk since around Christmas, but I procrastinated big time, of course. And then I realized, the document was so fucking long that it was impossible to finish before I left Japan. So I brought it back with me, and I'm still working on it! It's just never ending. But I absolutely have to finish it by the end of this month. I have been going to Insomnia every fucking night lately, trying to finish the damn thing!!!! I can't believe someone wants to do this for a living. I don't mind doing it once in a while, but this is definitely not something I want as a career... It's so tiring, trying to simultaneously think in 2 absolutely different lauguages.

Just visited Peter's blog... After I compeletely agreed with him on the Presidential election issues, I discovered that he was in Maui!! Lucky bastard!!!! That's one place I really want to go NOW. There is something about that island, I never get sick of it no matter how many times I go there. If I can play a round of golf at Kapalua in the morning, and spend my entire afternoon by the pool sipping Pina Colada, I wouldn't mind dying the next day.

I hope this year will be better than the last one. I have tons of motivation to make efforts right now - I hope I don't lose it too soon!! Please everyone, discipline my lazy ass whenever you sense my laziness. I cannot waste any more time!!! I am posting this now, so I have something to look back and motivate myself when I get *laaazzzyy* in the future.

By the way, as I am eating what is supposed to be the biggest feast of the year in Japan, I am dying to eat chicken soft taco from Del Taco and drink Boba... I've been missing those two for quite a while, actually.
