I am leaving for Japan in only a matter of weeks… and I am slightly terrified.
I trust that it will be a perfect trip, however, that doesn’t mean that everything is automatically sorted for me for the trip.
I still am figuring out where to stay and when.
My Japanese needs a serious boost in preparation.
I need to figure out price options for when my brother is there with me, and then find and book that place, whatever it will be.
I need to reach out to everyone else I want to be sure to see.
I need to figure out if I can manage dance shoes in my packing.
I need to figure out what to bring.
I need to pack.
I need to relax just a bit, and still get my stuff handled.
Today, I started a bit of Japanese review, by watching the next episode of this silly Japanese Netflix Original I used to watch when I lived in Japan, “Good Morning Call”.
And it felt good.
It actually excited me about my upcoming voyage, as opposed to leaving me stressed about it all.
I looked up this week Airbnb options, and now have a bit of an idea as to what I might end up doing for all three parts of my Japan time.
I have reached out in the past week and a half to all but one of my super important visit people (the one had already agreed about my visiting a month or two ago).
My knees are continuing to heal, and I am gaining confidence that they will be okay by the time I am in Japan.
Hopefully, they will be healed and at full, comfortable function well before then.
Also, I am exhausted…. and my teeth hurt… my lower teeth, especially…
I had to change my aligners today, so my teeth are all sore and in pain… however, this is the first day of my final month with these aligners all the time(!!!).
Anyway, gotta sleep… 4-ish start in the morning…
Love the World.
