It’s been a while. Why? Well, many different reasons. Like the title says “Sometimes “Things” Go Stale”! I think one of the biggest things is that I have tired of Japan. I know, how ungrateful I am….(rolling my eyes)!
Incase you are wondering I’ve not taken my time here for granted. I know people would hurt other people to be able to live in Japan…not nessicerily where I live though. Let’s not forget I live WAY up North in the farm lands…Not in the middle of Tokyo. To put it another way..one place is glamourous while the other is kind of homley…yeah.
I actually have many posts to write. I have been in a “I’m really over living in Japan” kind of funk. It has gotten old. Once you have been to a festival one time…it is the same, every other time. You have to enjoy eating too…I am not a huge fan of food on a stick or eating a lot, especially while I am out and about.
I guess I have been uninspired for a while now…even though I have seen and visited inspiring places! I come to my blog and try to decide how many of those 400 pictures I am going to post and what would everyone want to see of my trip or adventure. Then I just loose interest even though I want to share with all of you. It really is time to move on from here.
One more year, we shall be gone this time next year and I am excited. I don’t want to say my life has become stale because that is not fully the truth either…certain aspects of it have. It’s not like I can run to Walmart, Target or any of my favorite crafting stores.
Yes, I do have some Japanese stores I do like to frequent but it is never exactly what I want or am looking for, just something suitable enough…”for now”. Also, we are now in the summer full swing and I hate summer here. I am not and don’t think I ever have sugar coated that. I love winter here. I can say I am looking forward to my last winter here.
The things I enjoy most in life are a pain in the ass to do in the summer. I will say that just this past month they have allowed each home, with many restrictions…a small portable AC unit. We had talked about it, about getting one. We talked but then that’s been it. We are on a self imposed strict budget. 1 year out from our next move I love to save, save, save as much money as possible!
So what else has gone a little stale…friendships. I know, many fizzle and few sizzle..especially living the military life..always moving and even with social media it’s still easy to disconnect. Sometimes even the things you think will hold the friendship together like glue..does not matter. I guess with some people you have to have many, many things in common. That’s hard,lol. Friendships are hard, especially the older I get…boooo!
I guess when it comes down to it, I could write forever about negative things,lol. There are still many little positives about living in Japan but in the end, I am ready to adventure on and see what else is out there!
