Being an expat, I’ve seen quite a few friends move away from Nagoya. This week, two of my friends are moving away. One of them contacted me last weekend with an interesting offer. They were trying to lighten their load by one camera and offered to sell it to me. I of course said yes.
I haven’t had much of a chance to use it yet, save for a few test shots. My weekend is pretty packed with a seven hour D&D game on Sunday and a couple of doctor visits on Monday. However, I may be able to take it out Monday evening.
Yesterday, we were hit by a strong typhoon, which caused Japan Railroads to cancel many trains. Because of it, I had to stay a bit longer in Tokyo, instead of returning to Nagoya.
Today, I slowly made my way from our company dorms in Saitama to Tokyo station. Then, I took a bullet train to Nagoya, and a taxi to my apartment.
Now, I’m getting sorted, and getting back into life in Nagoya. This includes Yamachan`s chicken wings.
My friend A’s birthday is today. She is one of the most amazing, creative, and sensible women I have ever met. Only good things, my dear.
Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Work has been obscenity busy and I’m still trying to get used to life in Tokyo.
Although my school is in Tokyo, I’m staying in Saitama. That means I have a hell of a commute each day.
Here are a few pictures of things you can see around my place in Saitama.
This morning I had to get up super early to catch a 9:20 bullet train. I’ll be spending all of .gv in Tokyo on business, so I had to pack over the weekend and get things ready last night after work. If all goes well, I’ll be back in Aichi come October.
Today was my first day back to work, but I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night. My sleep schedule got messed up due to staying up late, then sleeping in, during my vacation. Since it was too hot to go anywhere, I adopted a more nocturnal lifestyle. That lifestyle doesn’t exactly match well with my work schedule…
It’s continued to be extremely hot here in Nagoya. So much so, I spent almost all of my Summer Break in my room. With the exception of going to the Aquarium with V, I spent my waking hours watching DVDs or playing video games.
Any time spent outdoors (again save for the aquarium) has been after 6 or 7 pm. Even then it’s been pretty hot and muggy. Some nights, it was a trip to the nearest convenience store, while others was to the video shop.
Work starts again on Thursday, though this week will only be a three day one.
It’s kind of funny though: I looked forward to spending time outdoors this summer for the entirety of the winter and spring.
