The weather has been increasing as have been my visits to the beach.
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.
Tomorrow summer vacation starts. I’m really looking forward to sleeping late and doing nothing. It’s going to be fantastic!
It was particularly hot this weekend, so I stopped by the juice shop, while waiting for my sneakers to get fixed.
What am I saying, it’s already here and has been here since the latter half of last week.
The rainy season’s over and now temperatures are high. It’s also been really muggy, so being outside can be unpleasant. However, this is still just the start of summer, so I’m expecting it will get hotter soon enough.
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?
How often do we look back at where we’ve come from? More often than we should? Maybe. But how often do we look back on those who helped us get to where we are now? How often do we look back on those who cared for us, without our knowledge, through just being? That last sentence must sound confusing. I mean, the people whom we have very little contact with (if any), without whom we could not exist. Think ancestors, think employees who had come before you, hell think people who invented or created something you use everyday! How often do we think about these people? Probably not as much as we should.
I got a call from the company my brother works for yesterday. I was offered a job. The job starts later today. The commute is a bit long, but the pay and hours are good, so I can’t mind too much. Through it, I should be able to start paying down my loans.
From what was said yesterday, it looks like I’m going to be assigned to a similar department as my brother’s. I am now officially another cog in the corporate machine. I’m so happy!! ((I really am, I always wanted to have an office job like this.))
I will probably update either later today or tomorrow about my first impressions of my new job. Of course, I plan to omit anything too incriminating or anything that can traced back to the actual company or myself.
Wish me luck!
I feel like we’re all about to melt. It’s been super hot around here, with temperatures in the high 80s & heat indexes feeling like we’re in the 100s. It’s all been really unpleasant.
I hope it rains soon, just so I can go out of the house between 9 am and 7 pm. I don’t mind going out IN the rain at this point. It’s just water right?
