Somehow, February has come and gone before I could even give it a friendly hello. Perhaps those two extra days on a month really do make a difference. Even so, this month has not only been full of school events and weekend trips (which, rest assured, I will catch you up on), but also a big decision.
After endlessly weighing the pros and cons with my supportive parents and yapping to my friends night and day, I have officially made the decision to stay in Japan for another year.
As of today, I have been in Japan for seven months. Even though seven months sounds like a significant amount of time, it feels as if I have only been here for seven weeks(ish). I know my sense of time seems absolutely warped, but time really has passed so quickly. Maybe I have joined the ranks of old people who say stuff like that, or perhaps, time truly does fly when you’re having fun.
So, while I am having so much fun, I figure I might as well keep a good thing going. Thus far, I have learned so much about Japan and about myself. I love my students and I love my friends. Also, I love y’all. So, this basically means that the door to my mansion will be open to visitors for another year!
