It’s sorta hard to believe that less than 23 hours from now I will be en route to Japan for a month. (exciting) I know I have some expectations for this trip but I also know that I’m trying to ignore, or rather, suppressing those expectations. (numb) It’s been 6 years since last time I was there, so it will be very interesting trip for me. (nervous) I don’t recall my being this nervous when I first came to this country as a teenager… It’s been 26 years and I know more about a lot of things nowadays but nervous? Nervous about what? I guess I’ll find out once I get there.
