06:32 pm: What time is it, again?
Yes, I have been a terrible slacker about posting.

The only hitch on my departure from Japan was that one of my suitcases was waaaay overweight (thanks to the heavy-duty 120V→100V converter) and I had to shift some weight around to my carryon and pay to send it as a third bag. That's even after I mailed off an extra box from Tokyo before leaving.

The flight went uneventfully, though cramped. It would suck being a larger person than me on one of those things.

I came home and got wonderful presents that had been saved up for me since Christmas. (They even left the Christmas decorations up for me to see.) wednesday_10_00 came over on Saturday to help celebrate and stayed the night.

Since then, I've been playing lots of Warcraft and stewing over what kind of job I want to look for now that I'm back. I have enough money saved up that I can take my time about it, particularly if I continue to stay with my parents.

Now I'm working on getting used to Michigan time. megory is still getting used to having me here. Every once in a while, it will strike her, and she'll exclaim, "Hey, you're HERE!"

Now I'll be off to grind some more Shattered Sun Offensive rep...

I haven't left the house much yet so far, and I've been occupying myself doing the same things I did in Japan (reading my Japanese books, watching Japanese DVDs I brought with me). The big difference is the food. I feel so spoiled by the ability to have cheddar or Mexican food whenever I like.

And the milk here actually tastes good.

I did take one trip to the grocery store. It's like, whoa, there are so many different kinds of cereal.

We'll see how I do when I eventually get out into the real world. I imagine I'll be bowing to people automatically for a long time.

Bowing really is an important part of life and interaction. I always feel like we're missing that and we're supposed to be doing it. At least you have a reason.
