'tis the season for CHANGE!today i walked around with my ass showing. i forgot that the jeans i was wearing were the 'mend or throw away' pair. the FULL (but not particularly LONG) story can be read here
August is the month where I start a new chapter in my life. Coincidentally, so do most of my friends. Amber has moved to california to start her adult life as a highschool teacher. Ryan has moved to oregon with some girl he barely knows. Steve is going to chicago on the wings of his latest pipe dream, and my darling rossinator, my partner in crime, is moving to toronto to start his doctorate at university of toronto. My personal chapter isnt that exciting. I came home from england for the last time in the forseable future, leaving my sea-kingdom under the watchful eyes of wembley the seagull (south coast), the noble cliff-cows of devon (southwest coast) and the ghost of henry III (eastern coast). then i left my job at hungry howies to work at Borders. my boyfriend will finally be in the same timezone as me, and i start saving to go to japan next year. this is the mini-chapter that gets the wheels in motion for the BIG change that will come in two to three years.
I will be getting a new phone with camera so that i will soon be able to visually document my life. When ross and i head off in september to the sand dunes of my childhood kingdom, ill be sure to record it well. also, this new phone will allow me to text internationally. I'm talkin' to you, England.
once i graduate from Oakland University in a year, i shall be leaving the country for rossland, i.e. canada where i shall pursue a career in chiropratatroning. i cant even comprehend the joy ill feel when i can live with ross in my HOUSE, not just my heart.
i want a pomeranian and there's nothing you can do about it.

NIHON HE IKU YOTEI/ 日本へ行く予定。In September of 2006, I shall find myself completely alone, attending my senior year of university at NAZAN UNIVERSITY, located in Nagoya, Japan. here are the kanji which make up its name:
from how i take it, the kanji mean, "distinguished old house/shop/seller/room". whatever....
i will be spending my last year of undergraduate studies putzing around with such classes as:
-japanese language (of course)
i say its a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me. i hope that my host family has a little bunny hop-hop like Magu, here...
in all actuality, im terrified. im terrified to be away from ross for 9 months, terrified to be in a strange country and have to celebrate both new years AND my 24th birthday ALONE, away from friends and family...away from ROSS, the person I need the most out of anyone in the world...terrified that my japanese wont be good enough...
but at least when I return, I will have a wonderful experience under my belt, I'll be fluent in Japanese, I'll be ready to graduate with my B.A. in East Asian Studies, and by that fall, I will be free to move to Toronto to be with Ross and begin graduate school.
