It’s Obonyasumi, so I’m traveling to Tachikawa to see my friends again.
I decided to take an early morning highway bus to Shinjuku station, from where I will take a train to Tachikawa. The train ride is about an hour.
The bus ride is about six hours. We left at eight twenty and didn’t arrive until after two. There were two short stop offs at reststops to use the bathrooms and grab snacks. I couldn’t really find anything I wanted so I snacked on mochi and grapes.
I will be in Tachikawa for three days before I go back to Nagoya and Anjo.
Is it a plant or is it an animal?
One of my neighbours started growing sunflowers in front of their house. I bet one hundred yen that these things are going to be the size of my head by the end of the summer. Any takers?
Much like last week, this week has been going by at a decent rate. I’ve already finished off two work days, with minimal headache, and am thinking about the weekend. I don’t remember things being so relaxed during my time as an ET. Most days I left early and came home late, which didn’t bother me so much at the time. However, having a ten minute commute is something that I might get too used to.
It’s currently 1:31 a.m. Wednesday, July 5th, here in Japan. I just realized yesterday (my time) was a holiday. I feel dumb.
I went to Osaka again this weekend. The idea suddenly popped into my head and I went. More pics and stories to come. I’m way too tired now.
Since moving, I’ve been wanting to start my own garden. However, I don’t yet know much about my work status past September, so I hesitate to accumulate yet more stuff. I still have my cactus Saboten (bought when I still worked in Tajimi), which I brought with me to Anjo. It was a pain to bring, even though I hired a moving truck, so imagine if I do get more plants. Also, I never really had a green-thumb, so to speak. Saboten is looking quite worse for wear, despite my best efforts. I will have to think more about this.
