I Have Returned

A long time ago. Yeah.. almost a month. There is just so much to do.

I had the most amazing time. It was wonderful, and not just because it was all roses. There were plenty of hard things about the trip as well- mainly the company. But I can't go into that right now.

Basically I havn't been here because I have been elsewhere- school has started back up again. I am taking history of japan, japanese 3, psychology of advertising, oceanography, and Steve's American Dream class.

Up until last week I was working 40 h0urs+ a week still. I have been trying to edit out redeye and glare from my pictures so I can get them printed and then make a scrapbook. I have been trying to find time to finish my journal about the trip- a hand written one. I still need to finish Scotts paintings.

I have to keep up with school work and house work as well, plus have some kind of social life. As you can see... busy. Very busy.

But I reduced my hours to where I only work Weds, Fridays and Saturdays. This now gives me plenty of time after this week- I have a huge essay due. Next week will be a little cramped with my first oral exam in Japanese, but I am not too worried yet. My first advertising exam- last Friday- was a 96.

Despite my a/c being inadequate and the overflow of people in Austin causing my job to be three times as busy as normal, I am having a good time. I bought new clothes. I paid off a little over half of my debt from the trip, and am slowly going to work off the rest. I have given out the souvineers sucessfully, and am now more fully participating in Steve's class.

As long as I pull off this essay for Japanese History by Friday while working on Wednesday, and using Tuesday as a movie night for Steve's class, I should be in a great place to do what I want.

Thats it for now. I will hopefully write more on Japan here at a later time.
