Lots of THINGS have been happening recently. There was a big goodbye party for us ECC teachers in Utsunomiya, and I've gotta admit- I had a blast. There were also some other moments that might have been relevant. Like how I MOVED TO TOKYO. No big deal. It's just MOTHER-FREAKING TOKYO. But more on that later.
Also, I'M ENROLLED IN GRAD SCHOOL. But I might have mentioned that.
ALSO! Through sheer luck and brilliant timing, I have somehow nailed down the best possible schedule for next year. Oh yeah, and I got a pretty awesome raise. So everything's coming up Vivian, professionally and educationally speaking at least. Back on the Canadian home front, there's a storm brewing... but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Here are a crap load of pictures in no discernible order!
And now, a shamelessly disorganized dump of the pictures from the goodbye party in Utsunomiya...
And finally, a blue sky. Which is long overdue. Spring took her sweet time this year, and she's finally arrived. I'm ready to bust out the sandals and put away the winter coat, but I won't hold my breath just yet.
