5 in 5

I swear I've had 5 posts saved as drafts, but I've been feeling uninspired therefore they have remained incomplete. 

I could blame the insane heat we have had in Japan (I like to blame the heat for everything!) 
But whatever the reason, my writing has suffered. 

We have also had a very busy few months. Sponsoring a new family, starting the new school year, doubling up on my own courses, preparing an international trip for my students, and making arrangements for OUR part of the trip to NY. 

Since finding out our next assignment, I've felt stuck. Stuck between two worlds. My present life in Japan with my job, teaching, and friends. And what my future (very near future) life will be in the UK and getting prepared for it. 

Justin is off to Seattle soon for a little training and I'll stay here in Japan. 
& since I've been feeling a little uninspired, I thought I would take an hour or two everyday that he is gone to explore places I've never been to. I am a huge fan of wandering around until I find something. Justin is not. So what better way to do so than when I'm on my own!? 

Hang in there with me as I get the hang of writing again. I'm struggling to find things to talk about. My life has been rather uninteresting... I guess I need to do a little soul searching.... 

Oh and did I mention that the cool weather arrived today?! Yes! 
It's fabulous. Which makes me more inclined to venture outside!

Video Blog!

Hello Everyone! 

Justin and I have REALLY big news! 
It has been difficult trying to keep the secret from a few family and friends, but now that EVERYONE (and their mother) knows, I felt it was time to broadcast it! 

What better way to do that, then by putting my new MacBook to good use and make my very first vlog

It took me about 100 takes and I feel apprehensive about showing it. 
But, I'm just going to put it out there. 
I would love some feedback!
Let me know what you think!

I'm hoping as I get more comfortable, I'll be able to post some really great video blogs for everyone! 

Does anyone think it is weird listening to your own voice??? 
I don't necessarily hate my voice.. but, it's just weird. 


Anyway.. 
It's Wednesday here! 
Woo Hoo! Just 2 more work days will the weekend. 

Still waiting for some cooler temperatures in Japan. 
It's bringing a new meaning to Indian Summer. 
It's WAY to hot! 

I promise to catch up on everyone's lives!
