It has been so long since I've last written anything! Haha... Feels great to be able to express myself once again.

So, 1.5months has passed and time really flies in Tokyo! I can get up at 6am and still feel that I do not have enough time.

The pace (including the pace of how fast people actually walk) is incredibly fast. People won't slow down for you. It's up to you to deal with the fast pace. Catch up or lose out. Of course, that doesn't only apply to Japan. It happens everywhere else.

As much as I love a fast paced life, once in a while, I'll feel like I need a break / a short getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Friends who know me will know that I'm a city girl and anything slow will bore me.

As expected, i actually liked my short getaway, outside of Tokyo, where time passed slowly for once! Time in Tokyo never slows down, ever, and so, I was amazed and at the same time happy that I could enjoy doing things at a slower pace.

Ahhh, the ironies in life!

Naturally, not all is rosey. I mean, come on, there's no perfect country to live in. There will always be pros (eg. food, shopping, concerts, events) and cons (eg. social norms, things that are considered embarrassing, certain rules).

Sometimes, I wish that I could keep my perfect image of Japan (fun, fun and just fun!) the way it was back in 2008. However, that isn't possible because living here (unlike being on a holiday) means having to deal with the good and the bad.

Moving forward, hello spring 2012(:

Tomorrow, Monday, will mark the first 2 weeks of my stay in Japan.
For me, it has been a really long 2 weeks.
With all the documents to complete, I didn't have much time to wander around and do touristy stuff.

If anyone wants to stay in Japan (short term / long term), be prepared to do a lot of paper work in the beginning.

I'm someone who really dislikes paper work but really, there isn't much choice.

Can't wait for all the paper work to end!

pre-departure jitters.
suddenly, there's not enough time.
suddenly, i can't put my thoughts into a straight line.

suddenly, it's so real.

panicking on the inside but taking it easy on the outside thinking that this will allow time to slow down just for me.

that aside, it has been long since i've been to a concert!
all the concerts that lie ahead :D

I've so much to say and yet, I find it hard to put those thoughts into words. Sometimes, I wonder if I should actually put those thoughts into words or leave them as they are.

It's not that I dislike the way things are now. However, I won't say that I like things the way they are now. It's like being caught in the middle all over again. Hate it.

What if something that you liked to do turned out to be something that you do not like doing after all?

At the end of the day, if you want to get something done, you have no choice but to do it by yourself.
If you're not going to work hard and be good at something, you'll only have yourself and no one to blame.
